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 have no heat. The fan blows but only cold air. This is a known defect in Equinox and torrent models with repair costs of over $1,000. Why isn't GM taking responsibiity for their failures?

Equinox 6-cyl

On October 19, 2009, I purchased a Chevrolet Equinox 2007. At the time of purchase I noticed condensation in the passenger side front headlight lens and I was told by the salesman at the time that it would "burn off" if I kept the lights on. Since that time both driver and passenger headlights have developed the condensation issue. The condensation does not burn off just keeps accumulating to the point where the headlight bulb would just burn out. In the past six years I have replaced the various bulbs in the headlight assembly nine times and the bulb socket assemblies have been corroded as a result of the constant presence of moisture. Often times I would be driving at night when the bulbs would go out making this a severe safety issue.

Transmission will not shift into third gear without letting off the gas, valve body solenoid problem. Rear wiper motor bad, ignition gets stuck on with key in, have to put gear shifter in and out of gear multiple times to get key out. Electronic stability control off lights comes on after just a few seconds of vehicle being started. Alternator was whining extremely loud, had to replace. Heater blend door broken, cannot have hot air for winter or cold A/C in summer. Sounds like water rushing through dash board when car is started. Very heavy odor of antifreeze inside car when heat is on.

The contact owns a 2007 Chevrolet Equinox. The contact stated that there was an abnormal buzzing noise coming from the vehicle. She later noticed that the windshield wipers would not move but she could hear the motor of the windshield wiper running. The contact disconnected the fuse because the motor would not shut down and the windshield wiper would not budge. The vehicle was not taken to the dealer. The manufacturer was contacted and they offered no assistance. The failure and the current mileage was 50,000. Updated 11/27/12 updated 12/10/2012
