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

problem #1

Jul 132011

I purchased a new 2011 Chevy Equinox on July 5 in Ohio. On July 13 I got into the vehicle and upon closing the door the rear window exploded outwards. It left S softball sized hole or larger and the glass was also falling our in all four corners. I called the dealership and explained what had happened and they returned my call 30 minutes later and asked me to bring the Equinox in and they would replace the rear glass under warranty. I'm not sure exactly why this happened as there were not any visible scratches or chips in the rear glass but it does appear that the glass was in some way defective or had been installed incorrectly from the factory. I have found one other person from tx thus far having reported the same issue.
