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.

First time owner of this vehicle. The end of June, 2014 began noticing that the gps would not save destinations when traveling, would have to reenter address anytime the ignition was turned off and back on. Shortly after this, the clock stopped working, when the time was corrected, if would reset after ignition was turned off and back on to the incorrect time. The bluetooth also began randomly disconnecting and would not connect anymore. Sept. 24th, the vehicle was brought to dealership where purchased to see what was wrong. Owner was told the entire navigation system would have to be replaced, for quoted $1300. Owner not satisfied, was told that it was a defect from the manufacturer, and that there was bad wiring. Owner feels that GM should cover the defective part. If bad wiring exists, this could be a safety hazard. Owner also found service bulletin pi-0285-D, which was consistent with the problems that had been occurring. Due to the fact that the owner did not purchase an extended warranty, GM will only cover a percentage of the cost to replace the defective part.

2011 Chevy Equinox navigation unit defaults to Washington and clocks resets hours off regular time everytime you turn on the car. Others complaining about same problem and supposedly dealers have a nav software update for a fee. I believe consumers shouldn't pay for a fix on a widespread defective product. Same problem reported on GMC terrain.
