Print this page Notes: The 2002-2007 Chevrolet Trailblazer is known for many things, but perhaps it is most famous for its faulty fuel gauge.

This gauge flip-flops more than a politician during election season. Some report that the gauge says "empty" after a fill-up, while others report the gauge says "full" when they're running on fumes. Either way, there's one thing everyone seems to agree on: the darn thing is just wrong.

Following hundreds of complaints and a few accidents allegedly caused by the malfunction, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) opened an investigation into the issue in May 2011. Unfortunately for frustrated owners, no recall has been announced.

I had my cruise set on 55 mph and was hit head on by VW jetta pulling out toward my vehicle, then forced to left into a telephone pole. Airbags didn't deploy, and received broken sternum. Don't know if seatbelt injured me, or if the seatbelt didn't lock on 2nd impact and possibly hit the steering wheel.

My 2007 Chevy Trailblazer driver's side seat belt will not latch in cold weather. GM will not replace the seat belt latch and wants to charge me $225. This is a mandatory safety device that should be warrantied for the life of the vehicle.

The contact owns a 2007 Chevrolet Trailblazer. The contact was driving approximately 55 mph when he noticed that the front passenger automatic shoulder belt retractor became inoperable. The seat belt webbing would not extract. The failure occurred whenever the ignition key was turned into the on position. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer where they informed that the seat belt functioned normally. The vehicle was not repaired and the failure continued. The failure mileage and VIN were unavailable.
