    My Trailblazer shifter started getting stuck in park around the 90K mile mark. Dealer diagnosed the problem as the neutral safety switch (after replacing the solenoid & eventually the entire shifter). Problem occurred again several times within 5K miles and 2 more NSS were tried. Eventually the dealer mechanic cleaned up a ground near the NSS and problem went away until now. Vehicle is now at 116K miles.

    Got stuck in Dallas on a Sunday. Got gas, put car into drive and attempted to drive forward but went in reverse instead. Fortunately I found a Firestone that was open and they sent a flatbed to get me. Seems as though the Gear shift cable went out. That was costly at over $1000 to get fixed and an overnight stay plus a days vacation.

    Ignition starts, but when I go to put the car into gear it will not move. It started doing this several months ago, but after sitting for a day or two would be fine. This time had to have it towed. Have not been able to get it to shift out of park in over a month. Don't want to take it to the dealer just yet.
