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.

My 03 Chevy Trailblazer is equipped with power/memory outside mirrors. The mirrors will not stay in one place when set. They will move at start up and while I am driving. This creates a serious safety issue for lane changing on multi lane highway. I have talked with other owners who have experienced the same problem. It seems that a software update might fix it but the mirror motors must be replaced also. This seems to happen after the warranty has expired. Once again this can cause a real safety problem.

When using the remote control to lock or unlock the vehicle the mirrors moved and it changed the position of the mirrors. Consumer drove the vehicle and noticed the mirrors were facing the ground or the sky. Vehicle were taken to the dealer, and nothing was done to correct the problem.

Owned 03 Trailblazer for 4 months and has given me electrical & mechanical problems. I had one problem since I first bought this vehicle and now I have 13 things that are a danger to me and my family. Ac turns on by itself whether car is off or on. Ac has turned on while I was driving frightening the hell out of me causing me to almost lose control of the wheel. Ac, engine lacks horse power, hand brake, hazard lights, lights turn off, mirrors move by themselves, car boggs as if it wants to turn off, while driving steering wheel moves by itself, gas gauge has read low fuel when gas is full. I am terrified the car will give out with my child and I in it.I have tried to have vehicle repaired numerous times and still dealer can't seem to duplicate the problem. The vehicle is a hazard to me and my family and to all those who own one. Need the problem to be fixed before any tragedies occur.

Driver's side mirror doesn't adjust enough to see oncoming traffic, and caused a blind spot. The dealer was notified.

I have had my 03 Trailblazer at the dealership 3 times for the outside mirrors. I have disabled curb-view assist and the mirrors still cannot remember their settings. Normally I can set the mirrors, get out of the car and turn it off for a few minutes, like at the gas station, and then get in and have to re-set them again. It does not matter if it is driver 1 or driver 2, the settings do not stay. Sometimes I get in, start the car and the mirror adjusts so I can see my elbow and the side of the Trailblazer. Other times I get in and cannot see any part of the Trailblazer in the mirror. I have been told, by the deleaship, that this is an issue that Chevrolet is aware of and there is not a solution yet, but Chevrolet is working on one. They will let me know when there is a fix. Does this sound like good business and excellent customer service to you?

Curb view assist, mirrors after being properly set to the curb view position while in reverse will from time to time stay in the "curb view" setting after vehicle is placed into drive or park. The only way I have found to get them to come back into driving position is to move them using the mirror controller or to turn the vehicle off and then restart vehicle.

Curb view assist. After properly setting both outside mirrors to my desired placement for curb view assist in reverse, the mirrors will "forget" their proper placement. It takes approx 10 -15 times into reverse for them to eventually not even move, although the curb view assist is being displayed in the driver information center. Dealer had vehicle in for service on May 5 03 and was to check this problem. Dealer advised "could not duplicate working per GM specifications.
