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.

When I turned on my vehicle today, none of the climate control system buttons were operational. Not able to turn on defroster, rear window defogger or adjust climate controls. Live in Minnesota so climate control is very important during the winter.

We purchased our Equinox from my wife's parents at about 30000 miles. We noticed after a short time that the windshield wipers left an "unwiped streak" in the middle of the driver's side wiper making it very hazardous any time conditions merited using the wiper. We changed the wipers multiple times with no resolve to the problem. Upon consulting 2 mechanics, they both made no changes saying there was no adjustment that could be made to the wipers. We then received the recall notice earlier this year. We can't really drive the vehicle with any chance of rain or other precipitation. This occurred with a Chevrolet service center as well.
