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.

Print this page 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.

2003 Chevrolet Trailblazer developed problems with the seat belt equipment.** answer required***. at times the front passenger's seat belt could not be pulled form the retractor. Two different dealer have inspected the vehicle but could not find anything wrong, therefore they refused to replace it under warranty.

I have owned my 2003 Chevy Trailblazer for just over four months now. I have had it serviced for a broken driver's side seatbelt three times, including today. When I took it in today, I'd only been driving it for about a week since the last seatbelt was replaced. Each time I take it in, they just replace the seatbelt, and they don't even investigate to see if there's a deeper problem. It's frustrating to have this many problems with a brand-new vehicle.
