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.

I came across a 2002 Chevrolet Blazer ls recall #01V364000 issued on or about March 2002. I had forgotten about the recall when I had my car repaired at jim trenary Chevrolet in O fallon, mo in March 2008. I later found the recall. The repair work that I paid for matched exactly what the recall was about so I asked for a refund for that work. They refused since my VIN wasn't on GM's list of open recalls. What went wrong with my vehicle was what was exactly described on the recall. Why wasn't my VIN included? part # 26100837 was a part mentioned in the recall and it is listed on my paid invoice.

Blazer 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 19,000 miles
Brake lights work intermitently, can get them to work sometimes by pushing the hazard light switch on and off, but may still work on and off. Took to dealer and they were not showing any recall and would cost about $450 to replace hazard switch carrier if defective, if not it the cost would be $99.69 for labor to check it out. Called GM 1-800-222-1020 and they said that it should be covered recall #01073A. Gave number to dealer and was told that only some of the vehicles within ven # range were covered by recall and they would have to check into it. My problem with this is why did I not receive a recall notice for this problem when the NHTSA web site shows a recall and my vehicle fall within the range of VIN numbers" and why does'nt the dealer know about this"
