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 #5

Jul 202007

Blazer 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 54,000 miles


The wheel bearings on my 2002 2-door Chevy Blazer went at just under 54,000 miles. Both front wheel bearings had to be replaced. It was suggested that I report this because this should not happen to a vehicle with so little mileage.

Front wheel bearing failure after only 48,000 miles of normal use. Replaced bearings myself to the cost of $300. I have saved the old parts. I'll never buy another GM vehicle again!

The contact stated the front passenger wheel bearing malfunctioned, causing the steering to lock. The vehicle was towed to the dealership, who replaced the wheel bearing at contact's expense. The contact recently found that driver's side wheel bearing needed to be replaced.
