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.

My seatbelt light comes on. I take it to the dealer for correction along with other maintenance issues I had about my vehicle. All this is under warranty. After regular maintenance is taken care of the seatbelt light stays on. The light never gets fixed or goes out. The vehicle was never in an accident that makes the bags deploy. I bring the truck back many times but the issue never gets taken care of. Now that the warranty is off they want to charge me $1000 for repairs that should have been taken care of under the warranty and the truck will not pass inspection until this gets taken care of..

Trailblazer EXT 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

We were involved in an automobile accident while driving a 2003 trailblazer xt. A driver turned in front of us at an intersection on a busy highway while we had a green light. I slammed on the brakes slowing down to what we believe to be around 35 miles per hour, and we hit head on into the side of his range rover. Neither front airbag deployed. I sustained a broken right foot and multiple bruises to my knees. I also hit the steering wheel with my chest and had many bruises to my chest. I am doing physical therapy for the injury my shoulder sustained from hitting the steering wheel. The car has around $10,000 worth of damage to the front end. I remember officials on the scene were surprised our air bags did not deploy and encouraged us to look into that. I am scared to have the car back. If a head-on collision like that will not deploy my airbags, what will? can I trust them if I'm in an even more severe accident. I know they are not supposed to go off at the least little accident, but I would not term this a small accident.
