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.

My 2009 Chevy Equinox is slowing down when I reach 4 rpms and will not speed back up until I go back down to 3 rpms no matter how fast or slow I an going once it reaches 4 rpms it slows down. When I shut the car off something is still running under the hold because I can hear it. It was 10 minutes before it finally shut off completely.

The passenger airbag seat sensor is faulty and doesn't turn on the passenger air bag when there is an occupant. This is a violation of FMVSS 208.
