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

Feb 192005

Equinox 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 20 miles


Very erratic steering when changing lanes at 50 mph caused me to lose control and crashed into a grassy ditch. This was the second time I noticed the steering was very different then I have ever felt. After hitting the ditch the car rolled. Remarkably, I was not injured and both airbags deployed and my seat belt kept me from injury. There wasn't any broken glass. The car held up to the 5 star safety. My concern is the bobble effect when changing lanes and the too tight steering. Fortunately, no other vehicles were involved. My Equinox suffered about $10500 damage. $4500 were for the airbags and related parts. My car is still in getting fixed. My only complaint is the steering at highway speeds. I will no longer have confidence in driving this on the highway.
