Horrible Investment. Used 2011 Chevrolet equinox
My husband and I bought a certified used 2011 Chevrolet equinox. Probably one of the worst decisions ever, however hein sight is always 20 20. Recently the car has been running tough at idle. It will loose rpm and then it will recover and rev way up. The ses light never came on. Also when stopped the vehicle wants to lerch forward. We took our car into the dealership where we purchased the vehicle and have done all maintenance and come to find out there was only 1qt of oil remaining in the oil pan. The vehicle needs 5qts at all time to keep the engine operating. The vehicle did have knock sensor codes now here is where it gets really good. Our vehicle has an extended warranty, in addition we had a chevy care plan where it covered oil changes for the first two years of ownership. The dealership has been the only one to work on this car we paid $119.34 for a oil change and for them to tell us everything I just posted. THEY DID NOTHING TO FIX THE PROBLEM... According to the dealership the warranty does not cover low oil issues and until they can pin point the exact problem of where we are burning oil the warranty does not cover. We have taken the vehicle in for scheduled maintenance on time and even early where we were turned away because it was not at a certain percentage now tell me something is not right here. In addition there is no warning lights to alert the driver you are out of oil or low on oil so who knows what kind of damage has been done to my engine... Also reading other posts this is not just a one car problem there has been many cases of people burning oil and engine problems so why is nothing being done to fix this?????
