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 Equinox bought used in 2007at 35000 miles-I was confused why someone would trade such a new car in-brakes continue to wear down-ignition had to be replaced, car would just die going down the highway-car almost feels like brakes are being applied when I take my foot off of the gas-tires that I bought 1 year ago are wearing out-

While traveling to work on highway 100 East bound in md. My 2005 Chevy Equinox started having vibrations in the steering wheel. I was traveling in the number 2 lane on a 3 lane highway when the vehicle then pulled me to the left. I counter steered to the right and the vehicle pulled me into a hard left straight into a guard rail. I could not control the vehicle after it pulled me to the left which resulted in my crash into the guard rail and another car hitting me afterwards. After the accident I exited the vehicle and looked at the tires located on the left side of the vehicle because I thought that this was the problem. Both tires on the driver side were flat and off of the rims. I could understand the front tire being in this condition but the rear tire was not near any impact. That portion of the car didn't receive any damage which makes no sense to me. A couple of months prior to this accident I had sears install 4 brand new Goodyear weatherhandler fuelmax tires. I feel as if these tires or the installation almost ended my life and I wanted to report it so that this doesn't happen to someone else.

Equinox 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 18,000 miles
Replaced tires on my 2005 Chevrolet Equinox with only 11,000 miles. Prior to this, I had to get an alignment however, the tires still went bad. After I purchased my new set of tires, I went back to have them rotated after there recommended miles of 5,000 and the tires are wearing again. I had less than 18,000 miles on it this time around. I can not afford to keep replacing tires every 5,000 miles. The garage told me that they had replaced the tires on several more Equinox that same day with just about the same amount of miles as mine.
