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.

2004 Chevrolet Trailblazer EXT Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 012005

Trailblazer EXT 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 5,000 miles


I purchased a Chevrolet ext trailblazer on Nov. 26, 2004. 2 months later on Feb. 1, 2005 it was towed into the dealership after shutting down 5 times with 2 loud explosions. The malfuction of the vehicle came close to a couple of accidents occuring and an almost near death experience for my daugher and I when it shut down for on a 4 lane highway by attempting to cross it unto the residential area. The dealership informed me that the fuel injection valve had malfuctioned and remained open releasing all the gasoline unto the engine. They are replacing the injector, spark plugs/wires that were flooded with gasoline, and the intake gasket. I contacted GM which also confirmed to me that the series of events could have started a vehicle fire and the first time this happened I should have left the engine off and vacated it immediately. The dealership can not tell me how this occured nor promise that it will not happen again or other problems stem from this defect. This is a potentially life threating situation to anyone. I am not the first person with this complaint. I am pursuing other avenues to ensure that I will not keep this vehicle. Please inform the public of this life threating safety hazard.
