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.

Took my 2007 Equinox to dealership where I but it in may of 2007 to tell them about passenger side airbag not working correctly when certain individuals luke myself were sitting in passenger seat and I was told nothing they could do that I just needed to carry a gallon of water on my lap because I was to small. Fyi I weigh 120. Also the key keeps getting stuck in the ignition I think this is very unsafe along with the airbag. Would like a response asap my Equinox only has 42000 miles.

The passenger seat airbag light goes back and forth between on and not on when someone is sitting in the seat. Sometimes it works fine for an extended amount of time. Leaning to get something in the back seat can trigger it to go off and stay off.

The right front passenger seat is built with a passenger sensing system. Whenever the front passenger seat is occupied, and sometimes when it is not occupied, an error in the seat sensor calibration causes the 'check air bag' light to come on.

My 19 year old daughter was driving home from work at approximately 11 pm on Sunday, October 5, 2014 on a straight street going approximately 40 mph in our 2007 Chevrolet Equinox when both the driver & passenger side air bags deployed for no apparent reason. It scared her half to death, and luckily she did not get in to an accident. I called our local Chevrolet dealership to report the issue & request service. I was told that there were no recalls & that I should file with my insurance company. I contacted my insurance company & was told no collision, no claim. I then went back to the service manager & he proceeded to tell me that the car probably thought it was going to tip over--really" long story short, I have called GM product department & filed a claim with them, and the dealership has had my car for over a week, and they have not heard from GM. I was told by the product specialist that an inspector was going to check the car & let me know what the computer says of why the air bags deployed. I have never heard of such a thing, and they are saying it happens all the time especially in SUV's. I have owned an SUV since 2005 & have never experienced an issue with the air bags deploying without a collision. I would like to know if this has happened to any one else & how I can handle this malfunction of the air bags. I feel that this is an issue with faulty air bags, not my financial issue. And is this car still safe for us to drive" please help.

I have been watching the recall listing for campaign number 07V344000 because this is exactly what is wrong with my vehicle but my VIN always comes up with no open recalls. The seat sensor for the passenger airbag has been determined to be bad but it doesn't apply to my vehicle. If the part is bad and is being recalled for other cars why is my car excluded? the Chevrolet dealer quoted me a cost in excess of $900 for a part I know has an active recall on it.

Equinox 6-cyl

I purchased a used Equinox and it now has the service air bag indication on the dash & even when occupied by a large adult the passenger side airbag will not turn on. It states off continuously. I did call Chevrolet as some have been recalled for the identical problem, however, was told that my VIN number did not match the recall only 437 cars matched that recall and that I was responsible for the repairs myself.
