2010 Chevy Equinox Problems

Comments

  • No I haven't contacted anyone..... My car is still at the dealship. Can you please provide me with the number?
  • Yes, I have that same one that is why I didn't understand why I would have to pay for this expensive repair.
  • Ok I just spoke with a GM person in warranty. Come to find out: starting with the 2010 model the throttle wasn't covered any long with the powertrain warranty, THAT SUCKS! But she did call the dealership and see what could be worked out. So, I will keep you guys updated on the problem at hand.
  • Driving to work this morning, I noticed the Reduced Engine Power warning come on, followed by the Stabillitrak Disabled warning. I was able to continue on for another mile before the engine stalled, leaving me stuck a mile from work on the side of the road.

    This would have been fine, except it is -10deg here...

    It seems like the issue is either intake, computer, or throttle body based on what I'm reading here. The Equinox has 75,348 miles on it, so I'm guessing nothing is covered by warranty, and I take whatever hit there is in the pocketbook?

    mbohnsack,
    Your Equinox is definitely outside of bumper-to-bumper warranty, which is the most comprehensive warranty on our vehicles that lasts for the first 3 years or 36,000 miles that a vehicle is in service. Depending on the model year of your Equinox, though, you may still be within the powertrain warranty (good for the first 5 years or 100,000 miles that a vehicle is in service). Whether or not what is happening with your vehicle right now would be covered by this warranty would depend on a dealership diagnosis (the powertrain warranty is not comprehensive, but does cover quite a few major vehicle components).

    If you have further questions, please contact us via email at socialmedia@gm.com with your inquiry (also include your name, contact information, the last 8 digits of your VIN, and a brief summary).

    Amen!!! Getting a new engine as we speak but will probably never put my kids in the truck again. Interested in starting a class action suit - only takes 3 of us and lord knows there are more than 3 of us stuck with this piece of crap!!
  • I'm game. Our 2010 has been towed to the dealer 4 times, has a new engine (at 40k miles!) and most recently now will not start from time to time. We bought this vehicle brand new so we would not have to continue to have a car payment. Well, we just passed 50k and have little to no faith it will outlast the payments.

    I did Sarah - you offered a 2000 credit towards a new GM peice of junk and you did not allow my call to be escalted to higher level management! Not acceptable. Refuse to put my kids in this death mobile. Will be rounding up as many folks as I can - maybe you will listen then!!

    Getting a new engine as we speak but have not desire to continue to drive the death mobile.. especially with my kids. Looking for anyone interested in participating in a class action suit. Any takers - the publice and all other Equinox owners need to know about these problems before someone gets killed.

    Mine consumed a quart every 800 miles - getting a new engine now - just want them to take the truck back....
    Any intersting in joining a class action suit? GM needs to make good for all the owners they have screwed!
  • suevensueven Posts: 79

    Send me your email - I will collect as many as I can and will be contacting an attorney. So far we have 5.

    good luck - the problems with this truck as so well known I hope you can get a decent trade in. I thank god I leased so I can return this piece of junk at the end of the term
  • suevensueven Posts: 79
    I am getting a new engine as we speak but will have no confidence in the vehicle either - will never put my kids in this truck again. Will be looking into starting a class action suit. Please send me your email adresss if you are interest or would just like to be kept informed.
    What GM is doing is despicable - they know there are major issues - make it right - take back the leased vehicles and replace the purchased ones before someone looses their life!

    I will be sharing my horrible experience with the world. Also exploring a class action suit. Please send me your information and I will keep you posted on the findings of my attorney.
    GM should be ashamed of themsevles!
  • suevensueven Posts: 79
    I am in the same boat..... how can they be allowed to get away with this - guess someone will have to be seriously injured or worse. Looking into a class action suit - send me your info - I can keep you posted. They need to make this situation right.
  • suevensueven Posts: 79
    They are not going to help and offering 2000 credit towards a new piece of junk is an insult!! looking into a class action suit, please sne dme your info if you would like to know what I am able to find out.
  • Wow! I'm shocked at the number of ppl having engine problems with this car. Can you tell me is this the 4 cyl engine? I have 60K+ on my 2010 but I have the V6 and haven't had any of the problems described here. Anyone having probs with their V6 engines? It's scary what everyone is going through. I use this car mostly for my business so my kids are not in the car very much, but I feel for everyone who needs to use this car to transport their kids. Good luck to everyone with the class action, hopefully GM will do something about it before it gets to that point, they need to step up and back up their vehicles!
