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 Chevy Equinox, vehicle engine shutsdown without warning while driving. This occurred one time while backing up and five times in one day before we took it back to the dealer. Vehicle only had 50 days of purchase and only 1077 miles. The engine stopped working, the car is moving forward on its own, can not change lanes because of the heavy traffic, car comes to a dead stop, vehicles are passing by at 70 to 75 miles while I am in the middle lane, cars behind me are honking their horns, thank god nothing happened. The car re-started we took off looking for the nearest exit to the turnpike but before we could get off the engine shut down again. As you can see this is safety issue, a car is not suppose to have engine failure, specially when it's brand new. Something wrong with this vehicle and it's gonna cause some vehicle accidents and/or fatalities, please look into this matter. Thanks
