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.

2013 Chevrolet Equinox Owner Comments

I have two 2013 Chevrolet Equinox lt and both have the same problem with the radio and center A/C console/heater/defroster. If a usb device is plugged into the receptacle in the center console at times the radio and console stop working. This affects the safety of the vehicle by disabling the defroster control allowing the windows to ice up (especially in Michigan). I have asked the dealer as to why it happens and they had no answer. The system has always rebooted fine after shutting the vehicle off for 5-10 minutes. Again this has only happened when a usb device is plugged in. It is my assumption that there is a problem with the booting of the center console therefore not allowing the devices to work. I have searched the internet and there are many complaints for the same item.
