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.

CarComplaints.com 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.

The cars computer code on dash read out that service brakes was required with a ringing tone. The ABS light and the brake light were also on. This led one to believe that the vehicle could be an issue with safety. We drove straight to the garage. A code C0265 was found on the computer by the technician. $91 was charged for a poor ground being redone on the ebcm. NHTSA item number 10022470 is applicable. We were lucky to be within a block of a dealer. This is a 2003 Chevrolet Trailblazer, with only 37616 miles. From February 2003 until November 2006 the car was garaged in Montana. November 2006 till present the car is garaged in wi. Why should the owner have to pay for an apparent ground issue defect problem? this is definitely a safety issue because the ABS system is disabled on the car.
