problem #1

(reported on)

Blazer 4WD

  • miles
The seat backs are much too high and wide allow for clear vision to side and rear. Blocked vision when checking blind spot to change lanes has caused several near misses which could easily have been collisions at highway speed. This is clearly a safety problem with the potential to cause injury or death. The manufacturer has claimed it is a design issue and not a manufacturing flaw and has denied any action. That won't be much of an anwer when my 3 month old and 3 year old daughters and their mother are killed or injured in an accident caused by this poor design.
