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

problem #1

May 232013

Equinox 4-cyl

  • 220 miles


The extreme slope of the windshield and extensive dashboard surface top, combined with my sloped driveway produces a severe glare that reduces visibility to the point where I am forced to inch into my garage. The grey dashboard becomes the dominate visible element, reflected onto the windshield in a manner similar to a heads up display. Daylight is the most critical timeframe. Adding a black carpet dashboard cover reduced but did not eliminate the problem. I would expect taller drivers would have an even greater problem. Driving in normal lighting conditions does not appear to be an issue, however the transition into a low level lighted area is a real safety concern. The vehicle has automatic headlights, turning them on or off did not help.
