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.

I purchased my 2008 Equinox new in December 2008 at rod hatfeild Chevrolet in lexington, ky. Within 1 month the service stabilitrak warning came on, simultaneously the power steering locked. Still under warranty, I had it serviced. On Nov 19, less than 60 days ago, the problem reoccurred. No longer under warranty, the repairs cost me $276. The warning came on again tonight and the power steering locked up, this time while driving! I barely made it home unable to turn the steering wheel. I could also hear a wobbling type of noise that seems to be coming from the front passenger tire. The onstar diagnostic report stated the stabilitrak had once again malfunctioned and to have the vehicle serviced within 7 days. I am now without transportation until Monday morning when the dealership opens. Had I been driving at a higher speed when the problem occurred, myself as well as others could have been seriously hurt. I am now afraid to travel long distances for fear that the problem will once again be improperly corrected. I feel that I have purchased a lemon now that this has happened 3 times in less than 3 years.
