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.

While driving check engine light, traction control, and stabilatrak all came on. I pulled over and shut it off. A few minutes later restarted with check engine light staying on. Before I made it to work 1 mile down the road the car shut off. No power at all!!! this was on a city street going about 40 mph. My car went down to 15mph within seconds. Very dangerous! this was the 5th time! the dealer replaced body control panel and this problem continues! the dealer still has it and has no real answers!

Equinox 6-cyl

  • 2,800 miles
When turning the steering wheel left or right at low speed or stopped, groaning or rubbing noise is emitted from front tires. Car is 1 month old, has approx. 5000 miles on it now and problem still continues after 2 attempts for dealer to repair it. During fill ups, the gas pump would click/stop and fuel would splash back out of tank and down side of car. This happened whether you set the automatic fill up switch on the fuel pump, or if manually filling the car myself. 2 complaints later, the whole gas tank had to be replaced. 2 days in a row, on 2 separate occasions, the smell of burning plastic and/or electrical wires has been noticed inside vehicle, and is more defined when outside of vehicle and smelling engine area.
