Print this page Notes: The Trailblazer emerged from an "upscale trim line" of the Blazer, but there's nothing upscale about its transmission problems or its wonky, unpredictable headlights.

It was drizzling that morning. I was driving in the far right lane. When all of a sudden my steering wheel was taking over my driving. My truck went left into another lane on its on. I saw another vehicle coming up in that left lane. All I could do was ask my truck what was wrong. And I started talking to the lord. Please don't let me hit this truck. Please help me. Next thing I was pulled back to the right hand lane and then off the road I went. I went through the woods over stomps and bumps. And then crashed into a huge tree. I fainted.I heard someone yelling. I opened my eyes to life. The police came out. And the ambulance. Thank god I'm not to cool for a safe belt. Cause my airbags didn't deploy. I was told they may deploy at anytime so I needed to get out of truck. My seatbelt left its print on my neck and chest. The truck was crushed in. Wheels on passenger side were bent under truck. A total loss..

From first attempt to use the spare tire lowering device it has not worked. Goes down about three inches and stops. Tire cannot be removed. This is a problem when stuck on the highway and is a real safety concern. Chevy has told me that nothing covers this. I am reporting this so that if other people are experiencing the same problem it will be rectified.
