NHTSA — Seat Belts Problems

CarComplaints.com Seal Of This Might Hurt

CarComplaints.com Notes: The 2005-2007 Chevrolet Trailblazer is known for many things, but perhaps it is most famous for its faulty fuel gauge.

This gauge flip-flops more than a politician during election season. Some report that the gauge says "empty" after a fill-up, while others report the gauge says "full" when they're running on fumes. Either way, there's one thing everyone seems to agree on: the darn thing is just wrong.

Following hundreds of complaints and a few accidents allegedly caused by the malfunction, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) opened an investigation into the issue in May 2011. Unfortunately for frustrated owners, no recall has been announced.

My passenger seat belt in the front got stuck. I took the truck to the dealer to see if they could get the seat belt unlock but they couldn't. so I had no other choice but to have the dealer cut the seat belt. This was the first time this has happen and would like to know if there is a problem with the seat belts in the 2006 Chevrolet Trailblazers.
