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.

Equinox

2008 Chevy Equinox - purchased May 2008. Nine (9) of the last eleven (11) months, the car has been in the shop for various warning lights; 'service battery charging system┐, 'service tire pressure monitoring system", & "service stabilitrak"on several occasions each. Each time, I was told that a module relay was replaced. They also eventually gave us a new battery and changed the starter. Now, the check engine light is lit up, and the "service stabilitrak" light is coming back on. The rear wiper will make a single sweep even when in the off position and the radio will start searching for a station even with a strong signal from an area station. If I have the cruise control on, the cd's will skip songs or restart itself. Most times, I am told that the issue needs to be happening when I bring it in. Unfortunately, it usually happens when on the highway or after hours. Therefore, nothing is done to correct the constant problems. I really feel like I purchased a lemon and even gave my dealer a copy of the Texas lemon law, I do not feel comfortable taking even short length road trips for fear my car will fail to run properly. I feel as though I am stuck paying for a "lemon" car for four more years.
