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.

2007 Chevrolet Trailblazer. Consumer writes in regards to valve stem caps and tire pressure the consumer stated while driving, an icon on the dashboard lit up and indicated low tire pressure. The consumer stopped to a gas station to check the air, but was unable to unscrew the valve stem. When the consumer arrived home, he had to use a small box wrench in order to get a better grip on the cap. It turned a little and then all of a sudden, the valve cap broke off the tire. The tire then deflated and the consumer was forced to put on the spare tire. He was unable to screw the valve cap back on the stem. The consumer took the vehicle to the dealer, where he was informed the valve stem cap was corroded due to the salt used on the roads in the northern part of Wisconsin. The dealer stated the part was defective and it was a bad design. The dealer stated they would not pay for the replacement valve stem. The consumer went to an independent mechanic and had the valve replaced at a cost of $87 the consumer stated the another valve stem broke.
