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.

2010 Chevrolet Equinox Owner Comments

Equinox 4-cyl

The Chevrolet Equinox instrument panel top pad has a integrated compartment in the center. The compartment has a bright chrome latch for opening the compartment. The latch has a very reflective surface. When driving South East the sun reflected off the latch blinding the driver even with sunglasses. View of the road was lost and the seat had to be repositioned to move the drivers eyes from the reflection. Photograph is available.

Equinox

  • miles
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.
