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.

CarComplaints.com Notes: The Trailblazer emerged from an "upscale trim line" of the Blazer, but there's nothing upscale about its transmission problems or its wonky, unpredictable headlights.

2002 Trailblazer brakes failed, rotors were rusted. The motor was not functioning properly on the drivers seat. The seat would not lift up to increase the height and was making a very loud noise.

I an complaining about the 2002 Chevy Trailblazer seat which has snaped a bracket which supports the seat on the left front side! this bracket broke while I was operating my vehicle and caused me to be jogged to the side when the seat dropped! I was not hurt but the sudden jolt caused me to swerve to one side before I recovered! as it was there was no one on my left when it happened! I called Chevrolet and did not get any satisfaction!

When teh rear seat are folded down there is not enought room for the driver seat when it is in easy out mode. I folded the rear seats down, and when I got out of the vehicle the front seat moved back as normal and hit the rear seat. This caused the motor or gear to break or jam, causing the power seat to not work. No repairs have been made as of yet.

problem #1

Trailblazer 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 14,700 miles
Loose driver's seat back. Driver's seat back has over 2 inches of back and forth movement and makes a "clunking noise" upon acceleration / deceleration. When decelerating, the seat back moves forward causing the driver's torso to also move forward. This causes the driver to put excessive pressure on the brake pedal which causes exceptionally hard, fast, and uncontrolled stops. Since the seat belt retractor is part of the seat back, this may also cause the driver not to be properly retained to the seat in the event of a collision. Dealer was notified on 12/7/02.
