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 #4

Jan 172006

Equinox 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 500 miles


The contact owns a 2005 Chevrolet Equinox. The contact stated that the windshield is recessive. When it snows and the windshield wipers are activated, a thick amount of snow will accumulate on the windshield, which causes a huge blind spot. To remove the snow from the windshield, the contact has to periodically exit the vehicle and manually remove the snow. She called the manufacturer, but never received a response. The VIN and engine size were unknown. The failure mileage was 500 and current mileage was 27,000.

Crack developed in 2005 Chevy Equinox windshield for no apparent reason. It became visible while parked in a parking lot on 12/31/2007, but crack began where windshield meets the car at the bottom of the dash on the driver side. Vehicle was 500 miles out of the 36,000 mile warranty for replacement. When Chevy service first looked at the car they determined in 2 seconds that it was definitely covered but when they found out the mileage said it was not. Had the windshield repaired under the auto insurance policy and the repairman said that there was absolutely no signs of damage to the windshield that would cause it to crack, I.e. debris, rock, etc. And that it was a stress fracture. He further stated that he saw this several times in equinoxes.

Windhield presented a stress crack - dealership repaired. Two weeks later, another crack appeared on new windshield, dealer stated windshied crack was not a stress crack, just a coincidence. Dealership also noted windshield was very difficult to replace.

On each side of the windshield the snow was cleaned off. However, the snow from the roof fell off onto the windshield and was trapped in the windshield pillars. Consumer was concerned because he was blinded.
