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.

CarComplaints.com Notes: It would be ill-advised to blaze any trails with the 2004 Trailblazer. Its faulty fuel gauge could leave you stranded.

2004 Chevrolet Trailblazer Owner Comments

When checking my brakes I noticed that the inside of the front brake rotors where corroded and rusty. The vehicle is a 2004 Chevrolet Trailblazer with 32,262 highway miles. Approximately 25-30% of the inside of the rotor were rusted and had worn down the brake pad. So only 70% of the inside brake pad was being used for braking. This causes the brake pads to wear unevenly. Appears that this could be serious in an emergency situation. I checked the rear rotors and they are starting to do the same but only 1/2" on the outer edge of brake rotor is rusted. I checked the recalls and there were none for brakes. I checked with Chevy and they are not aware of any problems. In checking websites, trailblazerclub and trailvoy, other people have had the same or similar issue. I would assume that there is a problem with the metal.
