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.

2003 Chevrolet Blazer Owner Comments

problem #1

Mar 262004

Blazer 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 13,850 miles


I opened the drivers door on my 2003 Chevrolet Blazer with only 13,000 miles and the door dropped down in my hands. The pins that hold the door hinge had partly lifted out. It would not have been out of the question for the pin to have fallen out completly in which case the hinge would have come completely apart and the door would have fallen off the vehicle. When I called the Chevy dealer they were well aware of the problem. Apparently this happens all the time with S10 pickiups and Blazer. Aside from the frustration of such a shoddy design I am afraid to think of the effect of such a failure at 65 mph or of a door coming off in an accident as a result of faulty hinges.
