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

While driving at 70 mph driver swerved to left to avoid hitting a motorist. When the driver attempted to straighten back the steering wheel by turning it to the right it overcorrected severely. This resulted in the driver losing control of the vehicle and crashing into a tree. Uponimpact, air bags did not deploy. Driver died, and front passenger sustained a broken neck, severe laceration to their scull, and bruises. The passenger in the rear sustained a broken angle, a dislocated hip, and two broken ribs.

When getting inside of the vehicle, the consumer noticed that the steering wheel was placed towards the left of the vehicle and not in the center of the driver's side seat. The consumer contacted the dealership, however, the manufacturer had not contacted the consumer. The consumer suggested there was a difference in the leather versus fabric. The manufacturer confirmed that the alignment between the steering wheel and the drivers seat was not straight.
