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 6-cyl

2004 Chevrolet Blazer. Consumer writes in regards to vehicle ignition switch problems. The consumer stated the ignition was fixed 3 different times. The vehicle had to be towed, because it would not start, due to the faulty ignition cylinder would not turn. In November 2013, the vehicle would not go into neutral or park and the vehicle could not be turned off. Per the mechanic, the ignition lock cylinder came apart, again and it had to be replaced. The mechanic stated the problem was due to a heavy key chain. The consumer also stated there was a problem with the two wheel thrust alignment, in which the vehicle had to be serviced twice within 7 months. The consumer no longer owns the vehicle.

Blazer 6-cyl

Car started making a rattling noise when I turned to the right shortly after having a spring replaced in drivers side front tire. Within a week the rattling progressed to a grinding. Dealership refused to look at it, knowing I was about to go on a long trip. I left for my trip (9 hour drive) after about 5 hours, this grinding noise was constant, then ABS light came on, started messing with my steering, then, while trying to get to a dealership in the closest city ( still an hour away from my destination) tire broke off at the bearings while driving down a major 4 lane highway. Thank goodness the other cars were able to miss me, avoiding a major accident. Although I was told you don't have a lawsuit unless there's an injury, so I don't know if it was good or not!!!!! the transmission would slip when shifting from first to second gear. Updated

We leased a 2004 Chevy Blazer in July of 2004, this vehicle rocks, shimmies, shakes, rattles, hard to handle at higher speeds, even when standing still and there is traffic going by at 45 mph the vehicle rocks, so it is not safe at any speed. Took it back to the dealer sundance Chevrolet in grand ledge mi, they could not find anything wrong, but did do some repair work on the transmission. Chevrolet would not even go into arbitration, but did put a 90,000 bumper to bumper warranty on the vehicle. When driving the vehicle in high winds it feels as it you are on a roller coaster ride.
