Summary of Complaint

VEHICLE IS ON STATIONARY STATE. (1) THE "REAR DOOR LIFT GATE WOULD DROP SLOWLY", BUT IT IS NOW BECOMING HARMFULLY WORSE AS BEING USED. I BELIEVE THIS IS DUE TO POOR QUALITY PARTS ON THE LIFT ITSELF. THIS IS NOT COMMON TO HAPPEN IN OTHER AUTOS. REPAIR IS INEVITABLE. (2) THE PASSENGER FRONT SEAT IS LOCKED UP. NO FORWARD OR BACKWARD MOVEMENT, ALTHOUGH IT IS RECLINING. IT DOESN'T MATTER IF VEHICLE IS MOVING OR NOT.

My car was purchased used at a Chevrolet dealership. I noticed right away that the carjerks when I accelerate, it also stalls when trying to accelerate when making a turn which cam cause an accident. The vehicle revs and slowly moves and then takes off. Its a dragging motion when driving its very slow. The steering wheel locks when turning as if I need power steering fluid. This car is a hazard, waiting to happen. When starting it, it makes this loud humming noise. I just had it inspected and the mechanic said the car was fine, but driving it is a different story.

Summary of Complaint

NOT LONG AFTER MY LAST OIL CHANGE, MY 2011 CHEVY EQUINOX STARTED A TICKING SOUND UPON ACCELERATION WHICH WORSENED TO A LOUD KNOCKING. I TOOK IT TO A REPAIR GARAGE AND TOLD THE MECHANIC WHAT WAS HAPPENING. AFTER HEARING THE ENGINE KNOCKING, HE SHUT THE CAR OFF AND PROCEEDED TO CHECK THE OIL. IT WAS BONE DRY. THE MECHANIC TOLD ME THAT THE CHEVY EQUINOX WAS NOTORIOUS FOR ITS OIL CONSUMPTION CAUSING THE ENGINES TO BLOW, AND THAT HE WAS AFRAID MY ENGINE WAS RUINED & WOULD NEED REPLACED. HE PUT FOUR QUARTS OF OIL IN THE ENGINE & THE KNOCKING STOPPED. LUCKILY, THE ENGINE CONTINUED TO RUN AND I WAS STILL ABLE TO DRIVE IT. BUT THE MECHANIC TOLD ME IT WAS A TIME BOMB, AND THAT BECAUSE OF ITS OIL CONSUMPTION THE ENGINE COULD BLOW AT ANY TIME. WHEN I GOT HOME I RESEARCHED ONLINE REGARDING THE EQUINOX AND WAS SHOCKED TO FIND MORE AND MORE PEOPLE WITH THE SAME PROBLEMS WITH THEIR EQUINOX AND HAVING TO REPLACE THE ENGINES. I ALSO READ ABOUT THE RECALL ON THE EQUINOX FOR ITS OIL CONSUMPTION, AND THAT MOST PEOPLE WERE HAVING GREAT DIFFICULTY GETTING GM TO DO REPAIRS, DENYING CLAIMS AND GIVING THEM "THE RUN-AROUND". NOW I AM TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO GET A DIFFERENT VEHICLE BECAUSE I USED ALL MY MONEY TO BUY THIS EQUINOX. I CAN'T AFFORD TO REPLACE AN ENGINE EITHER. I AM AT A GREAT LOSS BEING STUCK WITH THIS "TIME BOMB" THAT GM IS RESPONSIBLE FOR BUT WON'T FIX. I PURCHASED THIS CAR USED LESS THAN A YEAR AGO & IT HAS 116,000 MILES. I NEVER RECEIVED A RECALL NOTICE OR ANY PAPERS FROM GM.

THIS 2011 CHEVY EQUINOX IS PART OF A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT (ELLEN BERMAN, ET AL. V. GENERAL MOTORS LLC - CASE NO. 2:18-CV-14371). GM KNEW ABOUT THE EXCESSIVE OIL CONSUMPTION AND THE LACK OF OIL GAUGES, RESULTING IN PISTON WEAR AND FAILURE, CAUSING ENGINES TO SEIZE, YET CONTINUED TO MANUFACTURE THEM AS IS FOR YEARS AFTERWARD. HAD TO HAVE ENGINE REBUILT, COSTING ALMOST $4,000. RECEIVED DENIAL OF ANY REIMBURSEMENT FROM ANALYTICS CONSULTING LLC, WHO IS THE SETTLEMENT ADMINISTRATOR. VEHICLE IS NOT WORTH SELLING TO ANYONE, NOR WOULD I, IN GOOD CONSCIENCE, PUT THIS RUST BUCKET OUT THERE FOR SOMEONE ELSE TO HAVE TO DEAL WITH THE OIL ISSUE. (CONTINUES TO LEAK). GOT UPSIDE-DOWN ON LOAN...HAD TO USE TAX REFUND TO PAY IT OFF. WOULD REALLY LIKE TO BE REIMBURSED FOR THE ENGINE REPAIR AND LABOR COSTS. IT'S THE RIGHT THING FOR GENERAL MOTORS TO DO. WILL NEVER PURCHASE ANOTHER GM PRODUCT! I AM SPEAKING ON BEHALF OF MY YOUNG DAUGHTER, TO WHOM THIS HAPPENED.
