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 lt with B.F. goodrich "open trail T/a" M+S tires (P245/70R16 wol). This incident marks the third time this has happened. When the tires encounter freshly-wetted pavement or any wet earth on the pavement all tire adhesion vanishes and the vehicle becomes an uncontrollable sled as if it were racing across ice. This effect is not speed dependent. The first incident almost resulted in a rear-end collision. The second and third incidents nearly resulted in the vehicle leaving the road. These tires appear to be safe only on clean dry pavement.
