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.

I noticed oil on my driveway. I took my Trailblazer to the dealership. They told me that the front axle shaft was leaking fluid and that it was going to cost $800 to replace a couple of seals in the pinion and the gear box.

Right front outer shaft seal failure. This is a light truck/SUV that seldom sees use off of a paved road. The "right front outer shaft seal" should not be failing at 57,326 miles. "goodwill warranty" covered portion of replacement cost.
