Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2005 Chevrolet Equinox Owner Comments

problem #1

Complaint received via E-mail. The vehicle has been in for repairs 3 times, and I am waiting on a call from the dealer next week for updated information. The problems are: 1) foul odor, hoses for anti-freeze system replaced per bulletin; 2) rear squeaking, lubed same; 3) transmission. I originally thought brakes, but was told that the transmission had to be reprogrammed, and that it would continue to adjust itself according to driving conditions/ each driver's habits, and 4) popping noise heard when starting or when stopped with foot on brake. Noise seems to be coming from gas tank area. Asked for fuel line/exhaust system to be checked. As of this time repair center cannot duplicate this problem, and have no ideas. The car has been to the dealer 3 times and a total of 6 days. The transmission problem is in limbo as they are 'looking into it' and will call me back.
