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.

I purchased a Chevy Equinox in 2004, since I got it, I have taken my car 3 times to service for the cd changer, and once I took it to check the engine service light and a really strange noise coming from the front of the car while driving, but what really concerns me is that on May 2005 I had a car accident due to my steering wheel, got locked while I was driving at 60-65 mph in a highway, prior to the accident the engine service light turned on, and a few minutes later the oil service light too, I tried to avoid impacting any other vehicle around me but I couldn't. the two tires from the passenger right side came out of the rims, the tire from the drivers rear side came completely out of place. The strange thing is that the impact was in the drivers side door by the handles, but it looks like the whole car was put in a two story building and had been throw down from it, because it didn't support the collision. They are still investigating this incident. They estimated the damages in almost $8,000
