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.

2012 Chevrolet Traverse Owner Comments

I did not have a accident but I am sending this with a concern about what might happen because of an incident. Chevrolet Traverse does not come with a spare, (temporary or full size) or jack. It also does not have a place to put a spare tire. I had a flat tire that could not be repaired and all that came with the vehicle is a can of sealant and air tank. Now I will have to buy a spare and put it in back of my vehicle and this will be a huge safety issue. I bought this Traverse for the 3rd row seating but will not be able to use it because I have no other place designated to put a spare other than just place in the back section. I have 4 small grandchildren and in case of an accident the tire will be a major concern but we live in an area where sometimes phone/onstar does not work so we have to have spare tires. Everyone that I have told about this is shocked that it these vehicles does not come with at least a " temporary tire". I have contacted Chevrolet and they want to charge $700 for the cable, tire, jack to be added to vehicle.
