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.

While slowing for a stoplight the vehicle completly shut off including the steering. The car swerved into another car's lane. After I started it again, and immediately drove to mccomb Chevrolet. They said it had something to do with the electronic computer, and reset the computer. The second time I was slowing to go around a curve and it shut off again, and the vehicle went into a ditch. My daughter bumbed her head on the side door. This time mccomb said they couldn't find anything wrong, but maybe it was water in the fuel line. The third time I was slowing again around a curve and it shut off, and veered off the road. I have not called mccomb as of yet. This was very alarming and dangerous. I am now scared to drive it especially with my children.

I've taken my Trailblazer to the shop to check out the power steering unit. My power steering makes a grinding sound when cutting your wheels to park are if you are pulling out of a parking spot. I've talk to shop manager and they check it out and stated that they didn't find anything wrong with my power steering, and as of today my power steering unit continue to make that grinding sound.
