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.

I've had my trailblazer for two years now about 4/2010 the windows would go up and down on their own and the power lock stopped working so Chevy replaced the main control switch then about 6/2011 I had to replace the wheel bearings and the sensor twice and about 01/2012 the wipers and washer fluid wouldn't shut off got a new wiper motor put in and now the truck has been sitting since 4/2012 had to have it towed from albany because the truck just all of a sudden slowed down even with my foot on the gas pedal and now I have ten different codes that came up two for the camshaft sensor and solenoid the knock sensor the crankshaft sensor and a few other ones... we called Chevrolet and they have no clue what is going on nor what is wrong with it.

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!

Most recent is a driver's side door/window controls that have completely stopped working. Controls have been sporadic for over a month and have now, and it stopped completely with the window in the down position. I have been lucky not to experience the burning/melting issue others have before it stopped working all together - but my window is now in the down position and cannot be closed. In addition to the door/window controls, the rear window wiper stopped working about a year ago, the fuel sensor went out over a year and a half ago so tank always registers empty and check engine light is always on. (I have received the offer from Chevy to have the fuel sensor repaired, but because I will be responsible for half of the repair costs, I have yet to have it done -- Chevy should pay 100%, not 50%). I've already replaced the tie rods about a year ago, but was just told that they need to be replaced again. I've had issues with the car violently shaking @ 60 mph shortly after I bought it (used) from a dealer. After quite the run around and four extended stays at the dealers repair shop it was magically taken care of after I threatened to file "lemon law" paperwork. I'm just done. The consumer stated shortly after, the windows controls for the other three windows began to work again sporadically, except for the driver's window which was propped closed. On occasion, when the driver's side widow button was touched my mistake, the window would move slightly until being stopped by the 2X4. The consumer finally had the recall repairs done, after waiting on the parts. The dealer removed the 2X4 from the driver's side and the consumer was charged $105.55 to get the window operational again. Updated 05/23/13

The windshield washer and wiper start and stop on their own. The on/off switch is in the off position and they stay on. When the washer has water it sprays constantly.

No control of windshield wiper. Wipers start and stop on their own. On/off switch has no control once the wipers start. This situation will wear out blades, leaving the driver without wiper when needed.
