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.

Gas gauge stop measuring how much gas was in the tank back in 2012. Have had to use the odometer and just keep up with my mileage. Could not afford to pay to replace the fuel gauge.

The fuel gauge crashed the gas gauge will swing from empty to full on occasion, but usually just stays on low fuel. From what I can tell this is a common problem in 05-07 trailblazers. Sometimes.

My wife was going approximately 60 mph on the highway. The fuel gauge read that the tank had a little over a 1/2 of a tank left. The vehicle stalled and she almost crashed into the ditch. When she started the vehicle back up the tank read empty. My wife and kids had to wait by the side of the road in over 100 degree weather for over an hour until I was able to get away from work and take her fuel. We went directly to the gas station and put in $50 of fuel and the gauge still read empty. We have continued to put in fuel and the needle moves back and forth and always settles back on empty and the no fuel light always come on. I have no idea how much fuel there really is at this point. I am afraid to let my wife drive the vehicle any longer. This could have been a real bad situation. If my wife hadn't been able to control the vehicle and they would've crashed on the highway they could all be dead right now. I have read on other pages that this is a continuing problem and that Chevy does not want to pay for the repair. I guess they won't until people start dying from this. I will never again buy a Chevy vehicle.
