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.

problem #1

Equinox 6-cyl

  • 60,000 miles
ABS brake sensors on both the left and right front tires failed causing the vehicle braking system to vibrate and make stopping difficult. Advised by dealer that both sensors had to be replaced. Extreme safety hazard if having to stop at high speeds.
