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.

When Driving straight I have no problems but when I turn left or right it feels like you are applying brakes,power steering fluid was low and I filled it to proper level and then drove it around and I still have the same problem

Trailblazer LS 4,2 I6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 104,000 miles

So if i don't listen to music i hear a horrid grinding sound when steering to the right slightly or switching lanes on the highway or a right curve and the grinding sounds like a rubbing sound coming from the front tires, not sure which side. it also is slightly rubbing/grinding when the vehicle is driving straight but i can barely feel or hear it. i can really feel it in the steering wheel when i take a right curve like on the highway for example and i can feel it in my feet it vibrates the entire front of the vehicle, not enough to make me not drive it but its so annoying and its my only vehicle until the snow melts.
