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 Owner Comments

Have had my 2007 Equinox since 2009 with a few problems. Stabilitrac light coming on....A/C not turning on....window washer fluid not spraying. But today, out of nowhere, a gas smell. No visible leak, just the smell. After searching on line and seeing numerous complaints about the same problem, I wonder, do I try and find out the problem through a mechanic and probably spend a fortune or wait to see if a GM realizes there is a problem and wait for a recall.

A started to smell antifreeze inside the car. Checked coolant level and it was good. Last night started the car in 40 degree weather, and the windows in the whole car would not defog. No visibility to drive. This is a major safety issue. Heater core and/or broken air blend door and actuator problem.

When weather turns colder than approximately 50 degrees, windows become foggy. Defroster set at highest fan setting will not clear fog from windows. Constant musty smell in vehicle, particularly when using air conditioning or defroster. Had taken vehicle to dealership to remedy approx 2 inches of standing water in spare tire wheel well and was told cause was a "pine needle stuck in the drainage hole of the rear taillight housing""??" I believe that there is a serious problem with water leakage in this vehicle. Have researched and found a tsb pertaining to diagnosing water leakage. Took vehicle to dealership to address issue of excessive fogging, and was told they could not duplicate the problem. I find this ridiculous, as I experience the issue daily when temperatures drop below 50 degrees. This is a safety issue, as I constantly have to roll down all four windows before making any turns or changing lanes. When temperatures dropped to the 20's, fogging turned to a thin layer of frost covering all windows. Fogging takes place on windshield, all four passenger windows, and sidelight windows. This is a serious safety hazard and needs to be addressed. Suspect issue with a seal or breach of frame, etc. Water has gotten into air conditioning/defrost system and is causing a mold problem. Please address. Multiple complaints similar in nature found on your website and also via internet search engines.
