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 airbag sensor, the right air bag light only comes on half of the time. I have taken this vehicle in four times so far and it still doesn't work, GM rep says they will not replace any parts unless it shows error codes. What happens when someone face hits the dash or the windshield? I guess General Motors doesn't care!!!!!!!!

I was in an accident were I struck two horses that run out into the highway in front of me in my 2007 Chevrolet Equinox lsi. The first horse struck my passengerside front quarter panel and this caused me to swerve into another horse on the driver side. I was traveling at approximately 50 mph and the damage to the front of my car was very serious and my complaint is that the airbags never deployed during the crash. I know that the airbags are set of by specific speeds and damage but my whole front of my 2007 Chevrolet Equinox ls was nearly removed. I was wearing my safety belt and it offered little help since I was hit twice from opposite sides. I was told by responding emergency crew that the airbag must have been faulty since it did not deploy.

There were no events that led up to failure...the air bag light will stay off even though the passenger seat is occupied and on the dash it will read, " service air bag." I called GM hotline and was told that even though there was a tsb for that problem my vehicle did not fall within the selected VIN numbers and would not be covered.

The contact owns a 2007 Chevrolet Equinox. When an occupant was in the passenger front seat, the air bag turned off. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer for inspection, and the air bag sensor was replaced. The repair did not remedy the failure. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer on several separate occasions for the identical failures, in which there were no resolutions. The technician stated that air bag system was designed improperly. The failure mileage was 100. The current mileage was 30,000. The vehicle identification number was unavailable.

The passenger side air bag does not engage when I have a passenger in the car. There is an indicator to show the air bag either on or off, if someone is in the passenger seat or not. I have not had an accident but if I do the passenger could be seriously injured if the air bag does not deploy.

I have a 2007 Chevrolet Equinox. Intermittently, the passenger air bag "on/off indicator shows "air bag off" with a passenger in the seat. This occur with passengers weighing from 100lbs. To 200lbs. The only way I can get the "air bag on" indicator to work in by turning the engine off and then restarting the engine. I often must repeat this procedure six or eight time before the "air bag on" indicator is illuminated. The local dealer has replaced the passenger air bag module to no avail. They say that this is an isolated problem & there is no correction. This opinion was echoed during phone conversations with customer service personnel at General Motors. I have been dealing with this matter, on a local level for approx. 18mos. With any progress this represents a significant safety problem for my passengers I've searched this problem on your web site & note that your records show 57 complaints for this particular auto. Eleven (20%) were for the problem I've described in this complaint. I believe there is justification for a recall or other remediation. Incident has been ongoing since10/08. Incident date below is latest incident.
