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

problem #1

Traction control light came on while I was driving on 10/27/10 26 days after I purchased this new vehicle. Then the service traction control message came on followed by the check engine light. While trying to get out of traffic and park, as I shifted from reverse to drive, the vehicle kept rolling backwards. The gear shift illumination was no longer hi-lighting what gear I was in. I had the vehicle towed to the dealership's service dept and they claim that they not only cannot duplicate the problem but that they cannot find any problem at all and expect me to pick up this vehicle and make payments for the next six years on it. When this incident occurred, my first monthly payment wasn't even due yet. My 14 year old son was in the vehicle with me and we could have been in an accident. GM and the dealership (bryner cheverolet) refuse to give me a replacement vehicle or return my down-payment. They actually, expect me to put my life at risk to prove to them that this incident really occurred. Under the lemon law, I am required to give them 3 chances to fix the problem. How can I do this if they cannot find the problem to fix. Also am I supposed to put myself and others in danger to prove that there is a problem?
