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. 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 Chevrolet Trailblazer Owner Comments

First let me tell you that we are die hard Chevy customers. We still own my '82 Chevy Silverado pick up and it's running fine. Last may we traded in our little '97 cavalier that we had taken on numerous trips and pretty much trouble free the five years we owned her. Then we bought the '02 trail Blazer. Haven't gone on too many trips with him yet, but except for one performance flaw that we have discovered that is causing us concern we like the car so far. The concern comes when we have to brake suddenly to avoid a hazard in the road. The car tends to become squirrelie and feels as though it is going to flip over. Rather frightening when you need to react quickly and suddenly are faced with this unsettling situation. Is there others who are experiancing the same problem with their trail Blazer?
