Investigation and potential lawsuit against General Motors for its design and sale of the Chevrolet Blazer SUV. General Motors developed the Chevrolet Blazer in the 70s to compete with Jeep's popular SUVs - the first of that kind. Unlike Jeep, GM did not design the Blazer "from the ground up" to be an SUV but instead cobbled it together using the chassis from a small pick up truck, the axle from the Chevy Vega, seat belt buckles bought in bulk which needed to be used up and so on.
We are now seeing air bag problems with the Blazer. This model has been GM's best selling vehicle for years despite a number of major defects: seat belts that inertially unlatch, seat belts that jam and become unavailable, rear seat lap belts, high rollover propensity, a weak roof structure, door latches that open in an accident, axle failures, window glass failures, fuel system problems, and on and on.
