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: The 2002-2007 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 low beam and daytime running lights stopped functioning last week. I found there was a recall for this, but only for certain vehicles. GM needs to expand this to cover all Trailblazers manufactured in 2007. I contacted GM and was told in spite of problem they would not cover the repair. I had to drive home on interstate highway at 10:00 pm 85 miles using high beam headlights.

While night driving in the city or highway the headlights just die. Leaving the car with no lights and in total darkness. Unfortunately I have to use high beams to continue my trip. Using the high beams causes blinding of the oncoming traffic until I can safely reach my destination. The light stay out on average about half an hour.
