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 sport Equinox nothing but problems since I drove it off the lot 2 years ago with only 6 miles. 2008 Chevy Equinox sports & the transmission want at 40,000ish miles while I was driving in a snow storm. Took the dealer one month to repair because they couldn't get the parts. Also had the steering repaired 4 times, colar repaired. The old dealer did not believe me and the noise was there again & again. It turned out to be the rack.it was a grinding noise which should like my ABS, but it was the steering rack and a loud squealing in the steering wheel. I found a nice dealer who finally believed me and fixed it last week even though it was out of warranty with the new dealer & GM's help. Just makes me nervous what else is in store for me since the truck is now out of warranty. There was other issues too, like the co sensor, computer and brake is front heavy. The truck should have been recalled, makes you wonder while this model was only made for 1 year. But since I am a women I do not know what I am talking about! tried to take in, lol, not worth anything and do not have the money to start over.
