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.

Trailblazer 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

Since I bought this vehicle August 30, 2002 I have had to bring it back to the dealership on numerous occasions for several different items. I have had both the left and right brake lights gone out, the driver side head lamp went out, the air conditioner has gone out twice(four months apart), the driver side passenger window is inoperable(we have tried to get it fixed for almost a month now with no success) and the engine cooling fan was warped and the fan clutch malfunctioned. At this point we don't understand why they haven't just recalled the whole vehicle. Luckily we have the 36,000 mile warranty still in affect but what's going to happen when it is up and the same problems keep recurring?
