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

Dec 102007

Equinox 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 500 miles


Front bumper cover cracked inside left front wheel well where bumper wraps around. Crack began when object in garage was "bumped". cover material so thin that cover was damaged. Cost to replace was $888 at dealership. If material and/or design was better, this never would have happened. Manufacturer wants no part in replacing or fixing the problem. Told me to send it to my insurance carrier. My complaint is the poor material involved and that GM wants repairs for poor quality repaired or replaced on the back of a consumers insurance.
