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.

I had by back hatch open and I grabbed the door handle to close it. I pulled it down and as I pulled it down I hear a pop and all the glass shattered down on me with the door still open up in the air. Three weeks later I replaced the window. (not a cheap glass almost $1000 with labor to replace) the mechanic opened and closed the door and the hatch to test for defects. All went well. I went to close the door so that I can leave the mechanic shop and I heard the pop and the glass shattered again. GMC has no recalls for the 2006 Chevy Trailblazer ext ls and I have to go get this back window again. This is a great truck just don't know what is wrong with this back window. Ughhhh!

The contact owns a 2006 Chevrolet trailblazer. The contact stated that while driving 60 mph in the rain the rear of the vehicle started shaking and the rain guard trim kit on the tailgate broke and was hanging from the vehicle. The contact pulled over and removed the trim kit since it could have fallen off of the vehicle and hit someone's vehicle and caused a crash. The contact took the vehicle to the dealer who stated that there was no reason that the trim kit should have broken off of the vehicle because it was not damaged. The dealer stated that the contact was responsible for the repair since the warranty expired and there were no recalls. The contact stated the manufacturer should be responsible for the repairs since the failure was a design defect. The failure mileage was 74,000.

The glue that holds the rear window on the vehicle separates from the window, causing the window to blow out. We noticed the window was lopsided so we opened it and found that one side of the window had come unglued. We took it to the dealership this morning and they said it couldn't be reglued - it would have to be completely replaced. Chevy won't cover it because it's out of warranty. We left and he called us with the quote of $1000 for replacement. Just a few minutes later, the entire window blew out. It shattered glass all over the road and vehicle, even hitting us in the back of the head. Luckily our daughter was not in the car. The plastic cover that sits over the top of the window flew off the back and into traffic. There was a car behind us but there wasn't much traffic so they managed to avoid being hit. No one was hurt when it exploded but it could very easily have hurt someone in the back seat or in vehicles behind us.
