2010 Chevy Equinox Problems



  • maparkmapark Posts: 1

    I have a 2010 equinox Lt. It has issues and not sure why? A month ago I had to change the front tire because of a screw, and the menu was telling me it was the wrong tire that was flat. Now the engine light goes on and off (mostly on) which will not let the remote start work. The drivers side window will not go up and down at times, the rear doors will not open when unlocked from the inside. Also the car sometimes runs on for a few seconds after I turn it off.
    Help! This has seriously all happened within a three week span. Worried it's going to cost me a lot!!!

    Just sent a note to as now in addition to the other recalls, and having had the waterpump, and then the engine replaced due to timing chain issues, now had to replace alternator last month and today have to get Power Steering Assembly fixed to the tune of $$$$$! At what point does a car become a lemon. It can't be just due to a single issue that occurs multiple times...shouldn't it qualify if no matter what goes wrong and is replaced, yet another issue crops up shortly thereafter??? This car is less than 5 years old!!!

    I have a 2010 equinox, over the past year I have brought the car to the dealer 3 times and going to bring it in again this saturday. The first time I brought it in the car had a CEL and was stuttering/stalling while stopped or low speeds. During the visit they said they replaced the cam actuators and they said the cams but not sure. The second time was right after I picked it up from the first visit. On the way home(probably 2-3 miles from the dealer) the CEL came back on so I went right back to the dealer, not sure what they did this time. The third time I brought it in they said they were unsure of what it was and before they started the harder stuff they wanted to start with easy things to do so they cleaned the MAF sensor and the throttle body. Now about 2 months later the car is acting up again. Another thing that happened around the time of the first time i brought the car in was I did an oil change and about 2k-3k miles later the dipstick was completely dry, most people would say did you put oil in? but I did cause I no longer the new oil and i remember checking it after filling it. Just want to see everyones thought on this and if anyone has any advice. The warranty expires in Dec of this year so I want to get this fixed before then.

    Back in march of 2013 at 62K miles I had the engine replaced under the powertrain warranty. I now have 83K miles on my 2010 Equinox. I know that others have had the engine replaced and was wondering how their vehicles are doing. I was told that the engine put in my car was a 2013 fresh off of the factory floor engine. I've done all required maitnence and oil changes at the dealer and don't rely on the oil monitor, I get it changed at the 3,000 - 4,000 mile mark. Dad always told me a regular oil change is the cheapest car insurance you can buy..... That being said, have any owners who had the engines replaced had any additional problems? I'm getting close to the 5 yr mark and while I like the car and cannot say enough good about my dealer service department I'm a bit skiddish none the less.
