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.

2001 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup Owner Comments

problem #1

Nov 292002

S-10 Pickup LX V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 14,000 miles


This truck has more problems than any vehicle I've ever owned. ABS brakes brake on the rear only. Radiator blew up third year, heater quit working the first winter. Seat adjustment handles broke off for no apparent reason. Third door handles break often. Tailgate cables don't last long. Head light fell out as the plastic holder broke. Fuel pumps, had two of em all ready at a cost of approx 800.00 each. Check engine light stays on, and has been on since the second year. ABS and brake lights stay on dash, In fact, I have more lights burning on my dash than outside at night. Biggest problem, dealership never fixed anything under warranty. Everytime I went to the dealership, there was new employees, big turnover there, or so it looked. I made the mistake of buying 2 S-10 vehicles, a ZR-2 fourwheel drive and a Blazer. No more for me...As the Blazer is now having the same problems as the ZR-2 except for the heater problem.
