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.

2009 Chevrolet Equinox Owner Comments

problem #1

Equinox 4-cyl

  • 70,000 miles


I was parked in my garage and started my Equinox, as a put my foot on the brake to put in reverse the stabilitrak light came on a couple of minutes later the parking brake light came on, not it's on all the time and it has a message to check the stabilitrak and brake system. I went online to check if I could find a solution to it and found numerous cases on GM models. There's gotta be a recall for this!! I don't want to be driving and my brakes go out on me, I have a toddler in the car with me all the time!! here are a few of the forums I found with similar problems.
