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.

This is the third vehicle of this type that I have had to have a door hinge, bushings and/or hinge pins repaired on. 2004 Chevrolet Blazer four door (ODI number) 10255992. 2003 Chevrolet Blazer two door (ODI number) 10256634. The door is dropping causing a problem to either open or close the door. Door started creaking about a month ago and subsequently became a safety problem to close it properly. It was rubbing on the lock strike. Door was taken to the dealer after the other two were found to have a problem with the doors. I presume that the same repairs were made to this as it is still in the dealers shop as of today. When all is said and done it will have cost four hundred dollars plus to repair these doors and make them safe. It is not a new problem for GM as it has been going on in various models since the 80's.
