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.

The contact owns a 2012 Chevrolet Equinox. The contact received a notification for recall NHTSA campaign id number: 14V447000 (seats) and indicated that the part was not available to repair the vehicle. The dealer was contacted for several months and they were not able to provide neither an interim fix nor a remedy. The manufacturer was contacted and was not able to confirm when the recall repair would be performed. The contact was not able to drive the vehicle due to a bolt potentially fracturing if the seat was moved or adjusted. The vehicle had not experience the failure.

problem #2

Equinox 4-cyl

  • 21,000 miles
We were sitting still at train crossing when we were struck from the rear and was shoved forward 8-10 feet into the car in front of us. The car is a total loss. With all of the rear and front damage, none of the airbags were deployed. Also, both front seats broke loose from the seat brackets that hold the seats to the floor. My wife (passenger seat) not only broke loose but the seat twisted.
