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.

Received a recall last October 2015 about strong gas small. Got appointment at Chevy dealer to fix problem in November. Dealer says I need a gas tank, but they can't get any from company. They have other recalls also with the same problem that are waiting. Now vehicle has become hard to start. Still waiting for dealer to fix. Why does Chevrolet send recalls if they have no intention of fixing the problem?? this is a dangerous situation with gas dripping, and the strong gas smell. It is a lawsuit waiting to happen if someone accidently drops a cigarette around the car.

The fuel gauge sensor system becomes faulty after 74,000 miles. Mine started at approx. 90,000 miles. I have learned online this has happened to many 2002 Blazer owners & GM will not address the issue. Because of this the cars will not pass emissions due to a diagnostic trouble code & costs over $1,000 to repair on a 12 year old vehicle even thought it has nothing to do with the actual emission output. It is one thing to have parts break down with age and quite another to have the same part become faulty on a large scale. I cannot renew my plates due to the emission failure and cannot afford to fix a gage for a $1,000. GM needs to recall the vehicles and admit their fault using a cheap faulty part to save $$. I know this may not be a "safety" concern per say but GM advised me to make a complaint with NHTSA. My vehicle is my lively hood & I don't know what else to do.

After refueling our 2002 Chevrolet Blazer, there was a strong smell of gasoline. After taking it into the shop for repairs, the diagnosis was that the fuel tank and lines were rusting away and need to be replaced. Shop called us back and advised that parking break drums are falling apart. Every time we have an issue with this vehicle it has always been a major repair. Never a simple fix. With all the complaints on this vehicle I don't understand why the government doesn't force GM into a recall. This vehicle even qualified under the cash for clunkers program.
