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.

2006 Chevrolet Trailblazer EXT Owner Comments

Trailblazer EXT

  • 71 miles


I own a 2006 Chevrolet Trailblazer ext, during the summer heat I opened the top part of the back hatch (the glass area) and the entire left side of the hatch detached from the car, lifting the plastic molding on top of the vehicle holding the 3rd brake light. The bottom part of this "hinge" was only attached with an adhesive which obviously melted from the Florida heat and disassembled. At this point I can no longer lift the back glass or the entire rear hatch. Chevrolet will not repair or compensate us for repair of this issue as the vehicle is now out of warranty. They stated that this has been a problem on some Tahoe, Yukon and trailblazers and it would cost around $1700 to fix this "defect".
