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.

I have a 2003 chevy trailblazer ltz that I thought was very nice at the time and we were very excited to purchase the vehicle. It was a great suv for a while intil !!! My ac compressor all the sudden decided to lock up witch I have had this issue before on other brands sooo not a huge deal but then all the sudden my 4 wheel drive light starts flashing one day on its own and locks it self into 4 wheel drive but still says it's in 2 wheel drive ok maybe just a small flaw I thought but noooooo then it got worse every time I turn it to the right to make a turn it makes a crunching sound and locks it self in 4 wheel drive on its own. I have been a proud owner of many gm cars,trucks, and SUVs but after getting on the internet and reading about all the same problems over and over again and gm doesn't have a recall for this well that tells me 2 things this issue hasn't killed enough people for them to care yet or they just don't care cause they think they need 30,000 unhappy customers to make this a recall well I got news for GM. I know If I stop buying gm products they are not going to go out of business by just me but if enough of us unite about all these GM issues that should be recalled maybe GM will think twice about fixing this very important issue before it does kill people.

MY TRAILBLAZER CLUNKS AND SOUNDS LIKE THE REAR AXLES ARE GOING TO FALL APART WHILE DRIVING OVER THE SLIGHTEST BUMP. I CURRENTLY HAVE LESS THAN 60000 MILES ON THE P.O.S. WE HAVE HAD TO REPLACE FRONT AND REAR SWAY BARS TWICE NOW. IS ANYONE ELSE DRIVING A LEMON?
