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.

My vehicle is a 2002 Chevy trailblazer. I am writing today regarding the engine that has failed three times. There were multiple recalls on the vehicle including; air conditioning systems, back tail lights etc. The engine failed, and was replaced before 32K miles and again at 72K. Now on the third time, the warranty is expired! when we contacted GM Inc. They asked us to take the vehicle to there local shop. The shop took the vehicle apart and decided per GM that the vehicle was not under warranty, which is information GM knew from the beginning. I feel that they are shelling their responsibility for a lemon product they made. I have had nothing but problems with this SUV. As I remember my tax dollars bailed them out and help GM stay afloat! I am not asking for much. I paid cash $26,544 for this GM product. They got paid and the only thing I got is pain from an SUV that was defective from the start. I can't afford to fix a truck I already paid for and maintained as the manufacturer suggested. After working 30 years, I have fallen ill and now I am on a fixed income. I am only asking for my SUV to be fixed by GM because they know this is a defective product. To add, I am not the only one having this issue with my Chevy trailblazer. I need my vehicle, its my transportation to the doctor. I thought I had a reliable SUV that would last me. GM you are wrong for selling a disabled women a lemon with problems from day one then refusing to take responsibility! honor your product. Even wal-mart take back defective products. Car companies should be no different. Shame shame shame GM!!!!!! P.S. they still have my truck at the local shop. No one will return my calls!! shame

2002 Chevy trail Blazer ext on 3/3/07 - while driving truck on highway the truck stopped running. Restarted truck and pulled over to side of road. Truck stopped running again. My husband noticed the oil pressure gauge which indicated no oil pressure. Truck was then taken to repair shop. Our mechanic stated that it need a new oil pump, which is located in the engine- this was too big a job for his station. My husband called General Motors, spoke to their representative, who stated that the vehicle was no longer under warranty and in order for them to do cost sharing with us the vehicle would need to be taken to a GM authorized repair dealer. After numerous attempts to contact that same rep - we were informed by the Chevy dealer that we needed to pay for the diagnostics(635.00) or they would charge us storage fees. Still no contact from GM rep - our truck is still not fixed and still have not been able to get response from GM - other issues with this same truck have been at our expense: Replaced rear window motors for window, air conditioning compressor, rear tail lights (twice) due to recall and lights not working - seat adjustment switches panel (twice) now this expense which will cost over $4372 if no other damage was done to truck by oil pressure not working.

Complete engine failure. Bought the vehicle used with 45,000 miles on the vehicle. 4 months after I bought it, and with only 54,000 miles on the engine, it has a lower engine failure.
