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.

problem #3

Trailblazer 4WD 6-cyl

  • 9,000 miles


I have had the exact problems as stated in 10047425. Windshield wipers went out completely on a rainy day, module replaced, A/C broke on a hot day-fixed, power steering assist stopped working completely making driving the vehicle nearly impossible, vehicle started on reserve power when temp hit -6 degrees, heater motor stopped working completely the next day -10 degrees. Basically this vehicle doesn't like changes in weather.

Power steering assist failure, my 17 year old son was driving to his hockey game. In the vehicle with him were teammates and several friends. Luckily he was strong enough to handle the steering of the vehicle and no accident or injury resulted.
