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 #2

Feb 012012


  • miles


Was involved in a mva and driver was traveling 50-60mph when her car hit the front end driver side and air bag failed to deploy. Since then air bag sensor turns on and off when there is a passenger in the seat. Passenger weighing over 130 lbs. This is a big safety hazard and is scary to think that this car has yet to be recalled!! will the air bag go off next time something like that happens again??!! GM is wrong for recalling every other vehicle but this one!! power locks do not unlock or lock ever! I always have to manually lock and unlock each one. Safety issue again! and last but not least, there is an electrical issue causing everything in the car to go out every month or two. Recall this car before someone else gets injured.

Equinox 6-cyl

  • 71,000 miles
When starting the vehicle I get 3 warning lights. 1: traction control off 2: service stabilitrack 3: service brake system. As I have read online this issues could have several different issues going on. I have also read that this is happening to alot of Equinox owners, and have since found out this issue has happened on 2007 Equinox models, as well as several other GM model vehicles. I am appalled that there is no recall posted for this issue!!!! I have also read that there could be vehicle fires, engine power reduction, engine power cut off, wheel hubs could break off!!! this needs to be recalled immediately as it is a major safety issue!!!!!!!!!
