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.

Blazer 4WD

  • Automatic transmission

While driving 36 mph going around curb, the steering wheel failed to respond and remained in the same position. This caused the vehicle to veer to oncoming traffic and resulted in a head on collision. None of the air bags deployed. The manufacturer of GMC sent an engineer to see the vehicle and didn't find anything wrong with the steering. GMC denied the report issued by the technician on this accident.
