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.

Front passenger seat belt chime comes on when there is nothing on the front seat or almost nothing on the seat. This has happened at least 1/2 dozen times or more. I can be driving and all of sudden comes on. It can scare one esp 1st time. You don't know what is happening. I thought I blew a tire or door came open. My attention was everywhere but on 65 mph traffic on freeway. Breaks one's driving concentration. Independent of temperature. Other problem I have is lots of wind comes in on passenger door. It is not aligned properly. GM has tried a couple of times with no success. Very annoying and hard to hear radio etc.. 3rd problem is navigation, communication center, it keeps disappearing. It is giving me directions somewhere and then just disappears and resets. It has been replaced once. It has gotten me stranded more than once. I am a senior who relies on system. When it disappears, I am not always somewhere that I can stop to completely reset and reenter all the information again. I feel that this is a safety issue. I was on hwy every time and most of the time not in a remote area but not in area that I could stop. In ca. There are many areas you do not want to get off the frwy at. All instances above happened in the city areas while driving. Service was done Oct 2015. None of issues resolved despite attempt. All are ongoing.

The front passenger seat belt chime comes on even when there is nothing or almost nothing in the seat. This mostly happens when the ambient temperature is above 45 degrees Fahrenheit and either during a braking event or acceleration event (either from a stop or during an overtake menuver). It also occurs when the vehicle speed goes above 60mph. In all these situations the chime comes on at most in-opportune times while the vehicle is in motion startling the driver causing him/her to take the eyes off the road to look around what is going on with the vehicle. This issue has resulted in multiple near miss occurrances while I have my 15 month old baby in the vehicle! the issue started occurring in August 2015 (about 4.5 months after I got the vehicle). The dealer says that this is a known problem with these vehicles and that nothing can be done to fix this. I have seen multiple posts on the internet about this issue with Chevy equinox and GMC Terrain.
