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

Aug 022013

Trailblazer EXT LS 4.2L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 112,000 miles


My family and I went into the mountains to go camping with our pop-top camper. We went to our campsite and unhooked the camper and went to the camp store to purchase some firewood. When we came out of the camp store my Chevy Trailblazer Ext would not shift into gear. My brother and sister-in-law crawled under the vehicle and discovered that the automatic transmission cable was broken and we were on top of a mountain with no stores nearby. We had to use cable ties and duct tape to hold the automatic transmission cable and arm together to get down the mountain to Advance Auto. We had to purchase and install a new automatic transmission cable.
