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.

problem #5

Nov 152007


  • 2,000 miles


Purchased vehicle in Sept 07 and started noticing a knocking noise from the front end of the vehicle at about 2000 miles. The noise would occur during slow reverse, slow forward, and turning at slow speeds at intermittent times. We have taken the vehicle to three different dealers and they have all stated that they could not hear the noise. I am currently at 21,000 miles and we still hear the noise and we can not find anyone willing to perform the proper check on the vehicle to locate the cause.

The contact owns a 2007 Chevrolet Equinox. The contact stated that the very first day he took the vehicle home, it broke down. All the instrument panel lights illuminated and flickered, and the vehicle would stall. While driving 25 mph, the vehicle would completely shut down and lost all power steering and braking ability. The computer would reset itself and then restart. The failure would occur intermittently. He took the vehicle to the dealer approximately 14-15 times and they attempted to repair the failure, but it was never remedied. After he stated that the vehicle was a lemon, the dealer stated that nothing was wrong with the vehicle. He consulted the manufacturer and was informed that if the dealer could not duplicate the failure. The current mileage was 6,025 and failure mileage was approximately 10.

Equinox 6-cyl

  • 800 miles
2007 Chevrolet Equinox with several issues. Consumer states that the steering wheel stopped working, won't turn or allow him to back up. Stabilitrak light comes on. He was told he couldn't leave his car because dealer needed to check the warranty. The consumer had the vehicle inspected by another dealership and they told him the alarm system that was added was causing the problem.

Equinox 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 36 miles
The contact owns a 2007 Chevrolet Equinox. While driving 65 mph, the contact experienced difficulty steering. He returned the vehicle to the dealer at approximately 1,500 miles, and they replaced a rear tire for a thumping issue that was heard while driving at low speeds. After the visit to the dealer, the low speed driving improved; however, the highway speed driving did not. The contact returned to the dealer the following day because the thumping noise recurred while driving at low speeds. The highway speed failure continued, but improved only slightly. The purchase date was unknown. The current mileage was 5,000 and failure mileage was 36. Updated 02-14-08.

I had 2 Chevy Equinox 2007 model, loaded. First vehicle repurchased due to multiple episodes of stabilitrak failure, turn signals quit working, radio problems, passenger system airbag not working, and finally failure of main airbag system. Given exact twin of first car, as thought that car was just a lemon. 2nd Equinox had 2 episodes of stabilitrak failure, and a new steering column placed, and then had total system failure of the steering, brakes, gas, stabilitrak, and airbag system while driving the vehicle. I had absolutely no control over any of these systems! you could turn my steering wheel 360 degrees, and the wheels never moved, the brakes didn't work, the gas didn't work, and all alarms were going off that the systems, including the airbags were not working. Luckily, no one was injured as I had just begun making a turn into roadway and all vehicles coming at me both ways were able to swerve, and the car was going slow enough and over a slight incline that it rolled to a stop just before hitting a steel light post. This car was also repurchased. Something is very wrong in the engineering of this vehicle and I am concerned for all the other people owning/driving this vehicle.
