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.

2007 Chevrolet Equinox Owner Comments

problem #2

Mar 172007

Equinox

  • 170 miles

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

The contact owns a 2007 Chevrolet Equinox. Ever since the vehicle was purchased, the contact heard a ticking sound in the engine compartment. He stated that the vehicle had poor fuel mileage. The contact also had to jump from the vehicle because the serpentine belt caught a wire that was not in a wiring harness as it should have been. The contact also experienced stabilatrac failure on two separate occasions, which caused the power steering to fail. He has been injured twice because the rear hatch door struts failed and struck him in the head. The tires that came on the vehicle were severely worn and the turn signals would not shut off. The two front doors and the rear hatch door cracks and makes squeaking noises. Some repairs have been made; however, the rear hatch needs to be repaired along with the ticking sound in the engine. The failure mileage was 170 and current mileage was 26,000.

Equinox 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 4,365 miles
Took my 2007 Chevrolet Equinox to valvoline for an oil change at 4,365 miles. I was told that the front main seal was leaking on the engine and that I had no oil in my engine. I took it back to the dealership for repair. This vehicle has failed in the field under 5,000 miles. I will be requesting that the engine goes back to the plant so that this does not happen to anyone else. New engine will be supplied.
