Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2002 Chevrolet Blazer Owner Comments

problem #1

Blazer 4WD

Paint is peeling between at the outer edges at the license plate housing, where it comes in contact with the lift gate. Gray primer is already exposed. I have inspected 2002 trail Blazer and Envoy throughout the state and surrounidng states and all reveal the same problem. Owners need to be aware of this situation due to premature rust on the lift gate. It is sad that a brand new vehicle has a paint problem, before it is even driven from the lot and GM wants to paint the lower exterior of the lift gate and I feel the complete left gate should be stripped and refinished.
