problem #2

Trailblazer EXT 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 61,000 miles
Dt the drivers and passengers rear door handles will not open properly. Consumer has to go inside the vehicle to open the doors. Also, there was a recall for the windsheild wiper and washer, but this vehicle was not included due to VIN. The windshiel wipers start on their own, and one could hear the motor going without windshield wipers being on. Consume rpulled the fuse on the washer motor but wipers continued to run. This happened last Tuesday July 19,2005.

Trailblazer EXT

I own a 2002 trail Blazer ext. I bought it brand new and I have had many many problems with it. I finally have had it and decided to see if the internet reported any similar problems and to my amazement there are many people out there with the same problems, but here is my story. I have had to have the brake lights electrical system on both sides replaced, molding around the license plate frame repaired, oxygen sensor replaced, sway bars replaced, windshield wiper motors replaced, left side passenger window motor broke twice, gas tank replaced because it was leaking gas and now it is back in the shop once again because the engine light came on and I had the onstar system do an engine analysis and they said something is wrong with my power train. I took it to the dealership and they call to tell me the gas tank is leaking gas and needs to be replaced. I told them I just had it done in October 2003. They told me I could not drive my vehicle. I see there was a recall done on some 2002 trailblazers due to a problem like this, but they say my vehicle is not one of them. Why? I am having the same problems with the gas tank. This is the second one. I am lucky I took it in or something may have happened if it is this dangerous. I would appreciate a response back. Thank you, kathy yates.
