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.

Equinox 4-cyl

  • 9,728 miles


2010 Equinox ltz drove to work put the car in park and turned the ignition off tried to get out of the doors and the doors would not open. I tried to open the door with the key fob it still would not open. I then tried to unlock the door with the switch on the dash of the car and it gave a small beep but still would not unlock. I tried to open all four doors to no avail. I opened the back hatch and crawled out through it. I took the car to the dealer to them look at it and they said that they could not find anything. I was really afraid because if there was a fire I couldn't get out.

A few issues...... the biggest being the fact the vehicle was brand new it has had a shake in the steering wheel as well as the whole vehicle. You can visually see and feel the steering wheel shake while driving. Had it into the dealership on many occasions, they balances the tires, checked the wheels, guaranteed me it was the tires, replaced 2 and said all fixed! nope annoyed that this was the 5th visit, asked for 4 new tires and I paid the difference to upgrade from the hankook's to the Michelin's. picked vehicle up and the shale was still there, and they scratched 2 of the wheels while changing the tires. Advised the dealership I would address this when I needed an oil change as I had enough! took it in on a Tuesday am they advised me they were going to change a and try a few things.... Friday they call me and say they also had an engineer from head office look at it, and no fix! so I have to go pick up a vehicle that I bought brand new, and it shakes" I would have bought used! I am now going to talk to the owner and say this is not acceptable! apparently its a V6 issue? the 09 and 11 have the same issue? really? I also have had a sticky note on the dash to cover the chrome clip used to open the storage area on the dash. As it shines right in your eyes while driving? again has no one test drove these vehicles" not impressed that I spent 47K and have a lemon!

In new Chevy vehicles there is a center storage compartment located above the center console. This is held down in place by a simple push button. The button however is problematic as in some trims it is a chrome feature. In sunny condition, the reflection from the chrome push button reflects into the driver's eyes. This could lead to possible dangerous driving conditions.

My 2010 Chevrolet Equinox has an automatic door lock feature which automatically locks all doors when the vehicle is placed into gear. My concern is that if by accident, high water, or some other circumstance, the power locks and windows become inoperative as a result of electronic failure, and occupants become trapped in the vehicle. The door lock post cannot be grasped when in locked position. The dealer informs me this feature cannot be turned off. There has been no incident. I have to fill in the incident date in order to file the complaint.
