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 #1

Equinox 6-cyl Diesel

  • 74,255 miles


My married daughter(3 small kids) recently started smelling gas at the right rear of her 2007 Equinox(74,000 mi). Inspection by local dealer revealed gas tank seam near pump/sending unit assembly separated & leaking. Vehicle is still within power train and emissions warranties but GM is only willing to cover cost of new tank(not officially under either warranty, just as a "good will" gesture) leaving $500 in labor for her to pay. Per NHTSA website, there have been multiple instances of this problem which could only be described as a component failure / manufacturing defect. Given the potential for a fire and/or explosion, GM should view this as a potential P/R nightmare and do whatever is necessary to rectify the situation(to include a loaner vehicle). Local dealer has been very helpful but it's GM's place to do the right thing rather than taking 'partial responsibility'. two or more similar problems reported to NHTSA have been covered under warranty. Compared to the cost of a recall(or god forbid, a fire), repairing each of these as they happen without hesitation would be an insignificant expense for the manufacturer(and very good legal advice, I might add....) updated 07/20/11 the consumer stated upon further inspection at another dealership, it was in fact discovered that the fuel pressure line at the sending unit was cracked and leaking. The problem was corrected and all parts and labor were covered under warranty. Updated 08/02/11
