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.

I just wish that Chevy could make front end parts that actually have grease fittings once again so that those of us who would like to take proper care of our vehicles can. The parts they make now is crap!! It cost an arm and a leg and it just wont last for long...

problem #1

  • 8,000 miles

I have a loud continuous clunking sound in my front wheel when i turn it to the right, I took it into the dealer and they said they couldn't find anything, approx 3 wks later i was in an accident, i was going around a turn to the right and when i tried to bring the steering wheel back i couldn't and ran off the road..

I took it back in and they said they still can't find anything..

You can see on my right tire that the outside is worn, the serviceman said that's normal for 4wheel drive??

There is something seriously wrong with my vehicle and the serviceman doesn't know

Anyone with info or same problem
