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.

2016 Chevrolet Equinox Owner Comments

problem #2

Jun 042016


  • 6,600 miles


While driving at night, moving slowly in a traffic jam on a freeway, the instrument cluster totally went out. The radio continued to work, but the speedometer was not functioning. I continued to drive about 20 miles with the cluster and speedometer not working. After arriving at my destination and turning off the engine for about 20 minutes, I restarted it and saw that the cluster was very dim and the speedometer was only barely readable. As I drove it, the brightness slowly increased. The next morning, the speedometer and the rest of the cluster seemed to be normal. I took the car to the dealer for repairs, they were unable to find the problem since the car was working normally at that time.
