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.

I owned two Chevy equinoxes. The stabilitrak went on both vehicles without warning. The vehicle I drove to work I lost control of the vehicle when the stabilitrak went and my car was totaled.

problem #3

Equinox 6-cyl

  • 8,700 miles
Ses, air bag stabilitrak and ABS lights illuminated. Auto reduced power down to idle. When turned off and re-started, power returned to normal. This has happened four times since purchased new. The high pressure fuel pump has been replaced three times and the fuel sensor has been replaced once, requiring the gas tank to be removed in order to replace sensor. Also, airbag system inoperable twice since new, with sensors being replaced twice. Vehicle currently has 27,000 miles, still has bumper to bumper and powertrain warranty and is being processed through an attorney firm applying the lemon law. GM has made two low offers. Negotiations are still pending. Owner has lost all interest and trust in vehicle.

Driving slowly the engine and entire electric system shuts down and the car just turns off while driving. Then you have to put it in park and start the car back up and then it happens again.

The ABS lights turn on and the "service stabilitrak" message appears. The lights and message turn off after several minutes, but then continuously turn off and on. The Chevy dealerships do not know how to fix this issue.
