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.

2011 Chevrolet Equinox Owner Comments

Equinox 4-cyl

In September 2011, six weeks after purchasing my 2011 Chevy Equinox, I was rear-ended by a heavy-duty pickup truck. I was so rattled by the collision that I forgot that I had onstar. The other driver used his cell phone to call the police. I received minor injuries during the accident. A few days later I told my husband that I thought it was strange that onstar did not contact me right after the collision. He called onstar and told them what happened. The representative told my husband that the rear sensors should have signaled a collision, but, because the sensors did not activate, onstar would report the problem to GM. The rep also told my husband that this is an ongoing problem and GM management is aware of the problem. The rep offered to extend our onstar trial period for another 6 months. If GM is aware of the rear sensor malfunction, why aren't they correcting the problem" instead they are placating customers with an extension of onstar service. What happens if a more serious rear-end crash occurs, the driver is unconscious, and can't call for help" I would like this problem of the malfunctioning rear sensors to be investigated.
