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.

I contacted GM about the issues, they made an appointment at a dealer, when I took it their the dealer refused making up every excuse he could, called GM several times but they say these items would be fixed, it is all screwed up, GM does not give a [xxx] about these hazards, problems still exist, reference number is [xxx],their have been recalls except for Ohio, give me a break, that is the stupidest thing since the vehicle has so many recalls...........................tail gate door does not open, motor is not working, potential hazard.

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.

17" aluminum wheels freeze to the rear disc brake hubs, requiring special tools or a sledge hammer to remove. Defect makes it impossible to change a rear wheel on the road in case of a flat tire, possibly stranding the driver in a remote area or in dangerous weather conditions. Wheels have insufficient clearance around disc brake bearing hub. This has occurred several times, discovered when tires need to be rotated.
