The investigation into Trailblazer blazes has moved onto the next level, according to Reuters.

Back in February, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration started investigating 2006-2007 model year Chevrolet Trailblazers after receiving a dozen complaints about fires breaking out in door panels. Now the federal agency will be conducting an engineering analysis into some 341,786 vehicles, according to the report.

NHTSA has reportedly received 83 complaints over the issue, with 28 of those concerning actual fires. No injuries have been reported, and General Motors told Reuters that it is cooperating with the investigation, including examining the Trailblazer's platform-mates, the Buick Rainier, GMC Envoy, Isuzu Ascender and Saab 9-7X.

      Awesome. My driver power windows stopped working. Maybe the recall with fix that so I don't have to pay $400.

      Reading Autoblog's posts about recalls just about every day makes me assume that my car will burst into flames at any moment!

      Have you figured out GM is a Chinese company yet? You would be better off supporting democracy by buying Japanese, Korean, or maybe later Indian (Mahindra and Tata).

      Yes, at least they're "maning up". The Asian makers, for yrs bought their way out of blunder after blunder, and we let them do it, instead of boycotting their "quality" cars and suv's, like foolish children, we line up to line their pockets. Accelerator pedels stick, and stock prices rise...........oh stupid Americans..................

        GM probably sells more cars in China than in the U.S., so you're probably right.

        Chevy does not have a model made in China that is sold in the United States.. So what is your point?

      i had a 2003 chevy LTZ Trailblazer that was the best automobile i ever had the pleasure to own, and drive. and it saved my life and three other people when it was hit in a intersection towing a race car. it went head on into a concrete pole. if i could find one like it i would buy it!

      so what do i do with my 06 trailblazer, wait and hope it doesn't catch on fire................that would only be the cherry on top to the staggering number of problems i've had with this car in the 3 years ive owned it.
