Vehicle: 2003 Chevy Trailblazer ssue: Driverside seatbelt will inadvertently lock up when trying to buckle. When entering the vehicle, and reaching for the seatbelt, trying to pull the buckle over chest and buckle. The retractor (on occasion) will lock up, and not permit the webbing to move any further. This will occur for about 20 sec. Until the retractor loosens up, allowing the webbing to move. This vehicle has been in for service four times in the past year. Twice the retractor was replaced. Problem still persists.

I have owned my 2003 Chevy Trailblazer for just over four months now. I have had it serviced for a broken driver's side seatbelt three times, including today. When I took it in today, I'd only been driving it for about a week since the last seatbelt was replaced. Each time I take it in, they just replace the seatbelt, and they don't even investigate to see if there's a deeper problem. It's frustrating to have this many problems with a brand-new vehicle.
