Summary of Complaint

I FEEL VERY STRONG VIBRATIONS AND GRINDING IN THE BRAKES AND THE BRAKES BECOME VERY STIFF AND PUSH UP AGAINST ME WHEN APPLYING PRESSURE. IT WILL CONTINUE TO DO THIS UNTIL THE ABS AND TC LIGHTS TURN ON THEN IT RUNS OK. THE MECHANICS FOUND A SPEED SENSOR ERROR WHEN RUNNING DIAGNOSTICS AND REPLACED THE LEFT FRONT HUB BEARING. A DAY OR SO LATER THE SAME THING HAPPENED. THEY DID THE ENTIRE REPAIR AGAIN JUST IN CASE THEY HAD DEFECTIVE PARTS WITH THE SAME RESULT. THEY TRIED BLEEDING THE LINES AND SEARCHING FOR BAD WIRES, ETC UNTIL THEY RAN OUT OF IDEAS. I SPENT THE BETTER PART OF A MONTH WITH MY 05 EQUINOX IN THE SHOP AND SIGNIFICANT FUNDS ON REPAIRS AND THE ISSUE IS STILL NOT RESOLVED. IT HAS GOTTEN SO BAD THAT I AM NOW FORCED TO GET RID OF THE VEHICLE. MY KEYS ALSO BEGAN GETTING STUCK IN THE IGNITION UNTIL THE ENTIRE THING HAD TO BE DISASSEMBLED AND IGNITION SWITCH SYSTEM REPLACED. I HAVE SINCE BEEN RESEARCHING THESE PROBLEMS, ESPECIALLY THE ABS ISSUE AND HAVE LEARNED THAT I AM SURPRISINGLY ONE OF MANY WITH THE EXACT SAME ISSUE. I DON'T UNDERSTAND HOW CHEVROLET CAN GET AWAY WITH SUCH A DEFECT WITHOUT ISSUING A RECALL. *TR

Summary of Complaint

It was recently brought to my attention that the keys can fall out of the ignition with the vehicle running. Which creates an extreme likelihood that the vehicle can move forward or backward without assistance. My keys fall right out of the ignition you should not be able to take the keys out of an ignition with it running or not in park. Has not been confirmed by the dealership yet that’s my next step. And yes it can be reproduced at any time. Sometimes the key will not even start the vehicle. Hi had never reached over and just tried to take the keys out of the ignition to see if they would come out but I recently rented a room where the owner has the exact same car and the same thing happened to him and he had the ignition replaced. This is how I know that it happens because he reached over and was able to pull my keys right out with the vehicle running. I was shocked. Also at one point it says there is automatic transmission recall and mine is making weird movements and jerking motions sometimes not just on my car but on my landlord’s car as well. Maybe that needs to be looked at.

Summary of Complaint

THERE ARE TWO ISSUES WITH THIS EQUINOX. THE FIRST, IS THE KEY SOMETIMES LOCKS ON THE IGNITION AND I CANNOT TURN THE VEHICLE ON NOR TURN THE KEY - IT COMPLETELY LOCKS LEADING TO ANXIETY AND FRUSTRATION BECAUSE IT WILL TAKE SEVERAL ATTEMPTS AT TRYING TO PUT THE KEY IN OR EVEN TRYING TO PULL IT OUT OF THE IGNITION. THIS HAS BEEN AN ONGOING ISSUE SINCE WE FIRST BOUGHT THIS VEHICLE. THE SECOND ISSUE IS THE BACK DOOR/HATCH OF THE 2005 EQUINOX DOES NOT OPEN/UNLOCK. THE ONLY WAY TO ACCESS BACK AREA IS TO LOWER BACK SEAT AND CLIMB TO BACK AREA. VEHICLE WASWAS STATIONARY WHEN WE FIRST NOTICED PROBLEM. LOTS OF COMPLAINTS ONLINE ABOUT OTHERS HAVING THE SAME ISSUE. WHY WASN'T THIS ISSUE MADE INTO A RECALL ISSUE? WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY $150-$200 (ACCORDING TO SOME COMPLAINTS ONLINE) OR MORE OUT OF MY OWN POCKET TO GET THIS ISSUE RESOLVED? I CAN'T EVEN SELL THE VEHICLE BECAUSE I DISCLOSE THESE ISSUES TO POTENTIAL BUYERS AND RIGHT AWAY THEY GET DISCOURAGED AND WALK AWAY. WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO WITH THIS CAR NOW?

TAKATA RECALL: I BOUGHT MY CHEVY EQUINOX IN AUGUST OF 2017, SINCE TAKING IT HOME IT HAS HAD A LURCHING PROBLEM WHEN DRIVING OR WHEN STOPPED AT A RED LIGHT. IT LURCHES FORWARD AND BACKWARDS LIKE A BULL TRYING TO THROW YOU OFF. I PUT NEW BRAKES ON EVERY 3 MONTHS BECAUSE MY BRAKES DO NOT WORK EVEN WHEN BRAND NEW, AND WHEN I PRESS THE BRAKE THE CAR WON'T STOP, OR THE BRAKE PULSES AND VIBRATES. THE CARS GEAR SHIFT SOMETIMES GETS STUCK IN DRIVE WHEN TRYING TO PUT IT IN PARK. WHEN TRYING TO DRIVE AND THE GAS IS PRESSED YOU HEAR A GRINDING, AND THE GAS VIBRATES. I'VE HAD TO ABS SENSOR REPLACED 4X, O2 SENSOR 3X NEW BRAKES EVERY 3 MONTHS, NEW TIRES EVERY 6 MONTHS, REGULAR OIL CHANGES, IT'S HAD IT'S VALVES REPLACED, IT'S HAD NEW BRAKE LINES, NEW SHOCKS, REGULAR ALIGNMENTS, IT'S HAD A NEW CATALYTIC CONVERTER PUT IN. THE CARS RPM SPIKES TO 8000 WHEN DOING 30 MILES AN HOUR THROUGH A SMALL TOWN. THE WHEEL VIBRATES WHEN ON A HIGHWAY ABS LIGHT NEVER COMES OFF. T/C TURNS OFF ANYTIME I MAKE A TURN. CHECK ENGINE LIGHT IS I SWEAR PERMANTLY ON. . I'VE BEEN TOLD THIS CAN BE A TRANSMISSION AND GEAR SHIFT PROBLEM, BUT THAT ALL 3 OF MY REGULAR MECHANICS CALL THIS PROBLEM THE GHOST PROBLEM, BECAUSE THEY CAN'T FIGURE IT OUT AND ALWAYS TELL ME TO NOT DRIVE IT THAT IT'S NOT SAFE TO DRIVE BUT IT'S MY ONLY VEHICLE AND I AM 5 MONTHS PREGNANT AND CANNOT AFFORD A NEW CAR RIGHT NOW. THIS CAR IS UNSAFE AND NEEDS TO BE EVALUATED.

RIGHT WHEN I LEFT THE DEALERS LOT, IT NEEDED A NEW HEAD GASKET, INTAKE GASKET COIL PACK, AND A THERMOSTAT. LUCKILY THE DEALER PAID FOR THAT. SINCE THEN, I NOTICED WHEN SLOWING DOWN FOR A STOP SIGN, IF THERE'S A SLIGHT BUMP IN THE ROAD, IT FEELS LIKE I'M RUNNING OVER A BOULDER. WHILE SLOWING DOWN MOST TIMES, THE FRONT END OF THE VEHICLE SEEMS TO BOG DOWN ABOUT AN INCH, WAS TOLD MAYBE A MOTOR MOUNT? RPMS ALWAYS BOG UP AND DOWN FOR NO REASON LIKE IT'S TRYING TO ACCELERATE ON ITS OWN. A FEW WEEKS AGO MY AIR BAG LIGHT CAME ON INDICATING MY AIR BAGS WON'T DEPLOY WHEN NEEDED. A COUPLE WEEKS LATER THE RPMS BOGGING AND FRONT END BOGGING DOWNWARD BECAME MORE CONSTANT, THEN MY SPEEDOMETER RANDOMLY WILL GO TO 0 WHILE IN MOTION, THEN A FEW MINUTES LATER WILL WORK FINE. RPMS SEEM TO BE WORKING NORMAL WHEN THE SPEEDOMETER IS WORKING NORMAL. THE OTHER DAY, WHILE BRAKING, OF COURSE.... THE BOULDER FEELING WHILE BRAKING, FRONT END BOGGED DOWNWARD, RPMS WENT RIDICULOUSLY HIGH BETWEEN 3-4 BACK AND FORTH ERRATICALLY, AND THE SPEEDOMETER WENT TO 0.. ALL THAT HAPPENED AT ONCE, MADE ME OFFICIALLY REALIZE, IT HAS TO ALL BE A CONNECTED PROBLEM. THEN I FOUND THIS SITE, WITH SO MANY PEOPLE HAVING THESE SAME ISSUES, FOR SO LONG.. HOW IN GOD'S NAME IS THIS POS NOT RECALLED?? I CAN'T EVEN IN GOOD CONSCIENCE CHOOSE SOMEONE TO DIE BY SELLING THIS THING TO THEM, I STILL OWE SO MUCH MONEY ON IT. THERE'S SO MANY STORIES OF PEOPLE RANDOMLY STEERING, AND ACCELERATING FULL THROTTLE IN VARIOUS DIRECTIONS AND ANY GIVEN TIME. WHAT DEMONIZED TRANSFORMER OF A VEHICLE DID I BUY? HOW ARE THESE THINGS STILL ON THE ROAD? HOW MANY PEOPLE HAVE TO DIE BEFORE CHEVY OWNS UP TO THIS DEADLY HUNK OF METAL THEY SOLD TO US? PLEASE RECALL ASAP. I LITERALLY CAN'T SELL IT TO ANYONE. IT'S GOING TO KILL SOMEONE! AT THIS YEAR, THERE CAN'T BE MANY MORE ON THE ROAD SINCE THEY KEEP CRASHING. RECALL THE ONES THAT ARE LEFT. *TR

Summary of Complaint

I WAS DRIVING MY 2005 CHEVY EQUINOX ON A MOUNTAIN ROAD LIKE A DO THREE DAYS A WEEK AND ALL OF A SUDDEN THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT STARTING FLASHING AND ANOTHER LIGHT CAME ON ON THE DASHBOARD AND THE CAR WOULD NOT ACCELERATE. I IMMEDIATELY STOPPED AND CALLED AAA TO TOW MY VEHICLE. I BOUGHT THIS VEHICLE BRAND NEW AND I HAVE NEVER HAD ANY MAJOR PROBLEMS WITH IT. I HAVE KEPT IT SERVICED AND IT IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. I HAD A MECHANIC HOOK MY VEHICLE UP TO A COMPUTER TO DIAGNOSE WHAT WAS WRONG WITH IT AND THE CODE THAT CAME BACK WAS THAT THE HEAD GASKET NEEDED REPLACING. MY MECHANIC SAID THAT THE CHEVY ENGINE THAT I HAVE IN MY EQUINOX IS KNOWN TO HAVE AN ISSUE WITH THE HEAD GASKET WHERE IT GOES OUT WITH NO WARNING AND FOR NO REASON. CHEVY KNEW ABOUT THIS ISSUE BUT FAILED TO RECALL THE VEHICLES WITH THESE ENGINES AND DID NOT MAKE CONSUMERS LIKE ME AWARE OF THIS ISSUE. I SHOULD HAVE BEEN INFORMED OF THIS PROBLEM SO I HAD THE OPTION TO EITHER PURCHASE A DIFFERENT VEHICLE OR TRADE MY VEHICLE FOR SOMETHING DIFFERENT BUT I WAS NOT GIVEN THAT CHOICE BECAUSE CHEVY FAILED TO MAKE ME AWARE OF THE PROBLEM WITH MY ENGINE AND ALL THE OTHER CONSUMERS THAT HAVE THIS SAME PROBLEM.
