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 #3

Equinox 6-cyl

  • 95,225 miles


Air pressure sensor on rear driver tire indicated 28 pounds. When the mechanic turned the cap to remove it from the valve stem, the stem broke off (due to corrosion). Dealer says the wrong caps were on it it - it should have been metal caps. I bought this vehicle from this dealership but they say they have no responsibility. After getting the sensor and valve stem replaced ($86), I brought the tire back and put it back on. Checked remaining valve stems and another one broke off on the front passenger side. Another $85 and I will eventually have to replace the other two. Dealer is the only one who has checked my air pressure (during oil changes and multi-point inspections) and never mentioned I had the wrong caps on the valve stems. I have contacted General Motors with my safety concern. Had I been driving when the valve stem blew out, I could've easily been injured or killed. GM maintains there is no recall on this issue and will not pursue the issue. I not only feel this should be a recall, but I feel they owe my money back to me. This is the first GM product I've had (Jeep/Chrysler products in the past). I'm disappointed in the excuses the dealership gave me (wrong valve caps, moisture got underneath and caused corrosion) and with GM's response, since it doesn't have a recall on it, we really don't care if you could have been killed. I have already begun telling Equinox and torrent drivers to check their valve stems! shame on you GM.

Have had my 07 Equinox for 1 month and 1 week and the area in the back where the spare tire is has filled with water more than once. Last night I was driving it in the rain and a very loud vibrating noise came and went as I was driving the entire trip. I took it to the dealer and they couldn't find a leak. I also found out that my bearings to my alternator are worn. Not very happy with my expensive purchase that is turning into more expense as I didn't get a warranty. Who needs a warranty on a 2 year old car? well apparently you need one on a 2007 Equinox. Very disappointed in my purchase.

  • 170 miles
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.
