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: Carrying the not-so-proud traditions of its 2002 predecessor, the 2003 has a handful of instrument panel malfunctions that can leave you guessing your speed, engine temperature or how much gas is left in the tank.

2003 Chevrolet Trailblazer Owner Comments

problem #2

Trailblazer LT V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 132,400 miles


We were driving down the road at about 60 mph and the back spoiler that holds the tail light in just came flying off. There was a motorcycle behind us, and this nearly caused a bad accident. Chevy is supposed to be 100% quality, American craftsmanship. I think they should do a recall on this before one of us red-blooded Americans gets 100% dead because of their "design flaw"!!

Yours Truly,

Anyone having a Chevy Trailblazer LT 2003, maybe later version as well, should be extremely careful driving over 65 miles an hour, mainly if it is windy. The back spoiler (back gate) can fly away just like mine. After living this terrible episode with my truck, I am afraid of replacing it.
