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.

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

The contact owns a 2003 Chevrolet Trailblazer. While driving at an unknown speed, the engine warning light would sporadically illuminate on the instrument control panel. After injecting fuel into the vehicle, he would smell a strong odor of gasoline. He took the vehicle to a local mechanic and they stated that there was a leak. The fuel cap was replaced. Two weeks later, the engine light illuminated on the instrument control panel. He took the vehicle to the dealer and they stated that there was a fuel tank inject valve fracture, and that the manufacturer voluntarily recalled that component in August of 2007. The contact's VIN was not included; therefore, he would have to pay $1,200 for the repair. The manufacturer would not provide any assistance. The failure mileage was 110,000 and current mileage was 120,867.
