    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.

    I went to back out of a parking spot and shift to drive but it stayed in reverse. Found that the shift selector cable bushing had broke and came
    Loose. It was a $10 part and took me less than 15 minutes to install. Had to use a set of ramps so I could fit under the truck and a pair of channel locks to snap the two back together.

    The transmission will not shift. The stick will move but the display stays in park.

    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.
