Trailblazer 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

Stop light and rear turn signal light sockets are defective in that these lights cease working. When I go to change the bulb, the bulb is ok. After cleaning contacts, bending contacts and "fiddling" with the light bulb and socket, the light will work again, only to fail in 2-3 months. This has occurred 5-6 times since purchase of a 2002 Chevrolet traiblazer in the fall of 2001.

I bought a 2002 Chevrolet Trailblazer lt new about 10 months ago the truck has been in for service many times for different things as for seatbelt looking up and wont release, brake lights failing, derectionals that blowout every few days, radio/cd player wasnt working, leakage of water everytime it rained etc etc.. anyways I just took it back on 6-9-03 for seatbelt to be done again and for the derectional that failed again and also to have truck inspected I picked it up later that day and found that the inspection sticker had a wrong VIN # on it and that other work was done I left there knowing they said they dont know why the light in derectional keeps failing but they did change the bulbs { this is everytime I bring it this is all they do to fix it} on 6-10-03 the derectional wasnt working again my husband changed the light bulb this time due to the fact it takes me almost 40 mins to get to dealership.....I will be going to the dealership to ask for a copy of the history on truck and will be getting a lawyer involved and also contact the dealers commintion and channel 12 on this matter.....I payed almost 30,000 for a truck that is not worth it and I am a very unhappy costumer..
