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

May 272008

On 5/27/11 my rear wiper froze up in the on mode which caused my battery to go dead. In trying to jumper the car we noticed the driver door would not open even with the handle. The passenger doors would open. I had to crawl over the console to flip the hood release so we could start the car. My concern is if there was an accident & battery was dislodged you would never be able to get the driver out. This is a big safety concern for me as I am the primary driver of this 2008 Equinox. Has anyone else noticed this safety hazard? I talked with the dealer & he was unaware of this problem.
