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.

The electric seat control panel which is located on the drivers seat on the lower left side becomes dislodged upon a larger person sitting in the drivers seat. My vehicle had this problem and was taken to a GM garage and the panel was reattached more than once if I remember correctly. The side panel still continues to come off. The dislodging of this panel could cause the seat to move while the vehicle is in motion unexpectedly repositioning the driver and change the drivers position relative to the steering wheel as well as the brake and gas causing loss of control.

Gas gauge became very erratic. Finally didn't register at all. Check engine light came on while out of town. Took the car to a merlin automotive for repair. Spent hundreds of dollars and the light would not go off. Mass air flow meter, plugs, fuel rail, throttle position sensor, fuel injectors. They even called in a Chevy technician who could not figure it out. When I returned home I took it to my local repair shop where they dropped the tank and replaced the sending unit. Hundreds of dollars in expenses. Then the heating fan switch started smoking and had to be replaced as it had melted and nothing worked. Also, every door rusted through at the bottom including the rear hatch. Dealers' response:welcome to Wisconsin. I spent $700 to have the rust cleaned up.

Trailblazer EXT 4WD 6-cyl

I have a 2006 Chevy Trailblazer ext. I was driving around and it was pretty windy. I noticed that there seemed to be alot of air coming in thru the rear hatch. When I opened the glass on the rear hatch I noticed that the hinge had come unglued from the window. Since it was windy it also caused some of the other hinges to crack and break where the 3rd brake light is located. I had to forcibly close the rear window and now it is only being held by one hinge on the right side and in the lower middle where it closes and locks. Chevy says that it'll cost me over $1,300 to get fixed since it is out of warranty. It only has 53,000 miles on it.
