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.

2008 Chevrolet Equinox Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 092008


  • 26,000 miles


The contact owns a 2008 Chevrolet Equinox. While driving 25 mph in rainy conditions, the rear of the vehicle moved sideways uncontrollably. She took the vehicle to the dealer and they stated that the failure was a normal characteristic. In addition, the engine warning indicator consistently illuminates on the instrument panel. The gas caps were replaced three times, but the failure typically resurfaces shortly after the repair. Thirdly, the radio:cd:tape:deck fails sporadically and prevents a music cd from being ejected. Lastly, the air conditioner does not blow out of the side vents, which prevents air from disseminating properly. As of March 31, 2009, the technicians are re-inspecting the vehicle to determine the cause of the failures. The failure and current mileages were 26,000. Updated 04/21/09. Updated 04/21/09.
