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.

2004 Chevrolet Blazer Owner Comments

problem #4

Blazer 6-cyl

While driving in the parking lot of lowes, the door hinge on drivers side failed along with latch allowing it fall off. Making door unclosable and car undrivable. After taking it to repair shop, mechanic showed me several other 2004 Chevy Blazer with the exact same hinge failure. He has repaired so many of them with the same problem he concluded it must be a defect. Repair cost for this are estimated at $1K as the hinge must be replaced and re enforced, along with the drivers door and locking latch.

Blazer feels as if it is going to roll over in high winds, shakes, on the highway you feel like you are on a roller coaster ride. Blazer are supposedly the deadiest vehicles on the road today.

Water somehow gets into the B-pillar of the driver's side when it rains or the vehicle gets put through the carwash. Customer noticed the seat belt was soaked when pulled out. Customer is worried about seat belt strength diminishing and failing in an accident. Since the belt is wet all the way to the end when pulled out, the mechanism that ravels up the belt must be wet also. Rusting and mechanism failure could result. Seatbelt also is mildewing and starting to smell.
