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.

Print this page 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

problem #2

Mar 102006

Trailblazer ES V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 35,000 miles


I was traveling about 30 MPH and hit a vehicle that ran a stop sign. I hit the other car in their driver's door. I would have expected the air bags to deploy - and given the damage to my vehicle, it should have! I am now concerned that the airbags may be defective.
