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.

2003 Chevrolet Trailblazer Owner Comments

problem #2

The 2003 Chevrolet Trailblazer I have owned since I purchased it brand new in 2003 was involved in an accident on 10/24/2010. My kids were driving when another vehicle sideswiped them, causing them to leave the road. When they reentered the road, the vehicle hit them again causing the Trailblazer to flip over a guardrail and rollover several times; landing on its roof. There were four vehicle occupants (including the driver). Neither driver, passenger side nor side airbags deployed during the accident.
