Summary of Complaint

I PURCHED A 2013 CHEVY EQUINOX BRAND NEW. TWO YEARS AFTER HAVING IT THE CENTER CONSOLE FOR MY RADIO AND HEAT/AIR CONTROL WOULD NOT WORK. I TOOK IT TO THE DEALER AND THEY FIXED IT. I WAS TOLD THAT IT WAS A MODULE SWITCH. THEN IN APRIL 2017 IT DID IT AGAIN! TOOK IT TO THE DEALER AND WAS TOLD IT WAS THE AIR HVAC. THEN AUGUST 2018 IT HAPPENED AGAIN. THIS TIME I AM TOLD IT IS THE RADIO HVAC AND THAT NOW IT IS NOT COVERED ON WARRANTY AND THAT I HAVE TO PAY $650 TO HAVE IT FIXED. I BELIEVE THIS HAS BEEN A MAJOR PROBLEM FROM THE FIRST TIME IT HAPPENED AND JUST KEEP GETTING TOLD SOMETHING DIFFERENT EVERYTIME. THE SAME THING HAPPENS BUT HAVE BEEN TOLD A DIFFERENT PROBLEM BY THE CHEVY DEALER WITH THE EXPENSE GOING UP EACH TIME.

MY 2013 CHEV EQUINOX BEGAN HAVING ISSUE WITH OIL CONSUMPTION SHORTLY AFTER I BOUGHT IT USED 6-11-16. IT WAS COMPLETELY OUT OF OIL.THIS INVOLVES HAVING THEM CHECK MY OIL EVERY 500 MILES. THEY RAN ME A LITTLE OVER 12,000 MILES DOING THIS TEST NOT ONCE BUT TWICE!!! I WAS ADVISED BY DEALER HUFFMAN CHEV FRANKFORT KY THAT THIS WAS AN ISSUE WITH EQUINOX AND TO GET GM TO TAKE CARE OF WOULD HAVE TO DO OIL CONSUMPTION TEST. THE CAR RAN OUT OF OIL SEVERAL TIMES. WAS KNOCKING AND NOT SAFE TO DRIVE BUT THE DEALER MADE ME DO THE TEST TWICE AND THEN AFTER MY CAR STOPPED IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD AND TOOK IT IN WAS ADVISED I NEED NEW ENGINE. NOW GM SAYS MY CAR ISN'T PART OF THE ENGINE DESIGN FLAW..WHICH THEY ACKNOWLEDGE THERE IS A DESIGN FLAW...EVEN THOUGH WHAT HAPPENED IS EXACTLY WHAT THEY DESCRIBE AS PROBLEM. STOPPING IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD WAS A BIG DEAL TO ME AND THE KNOCKING AND BANGING WHEN TRYING TO STOP WHEN I WAS GOING THRU "OIL CONSUMPTION" TESTS WAS A CONCERN. EVERYONE NOW SAYS IT IS NOT THERE PROBLEM IT IS SOMEONE ELSE'S. THERE ARE A LOT OF COMPLAINTS AGAINST GM FOR THIS ISSUE IF YOU LOOK ON WEB.

THE ENGINE BURNS ABOUT A QUART OF OIL PER 1000 MILES. WE HAD A DEALER LOOK INTO IT, INCLUDING A DIP TEST EVERY 500 MILES. THEY FOUND THAT IT IS INDEED BURNING OIL, AND SAID DUE TO LOW TENSION RINGS AND SHORT SKIRT PISTON, THIS WAS NORMAL. I'M NO MECHANIC, BUT 3 QUARTS OF OIL PER NORMAL OIL CHANGE INTERVALS SEEMS REALLY EXCESSIVE. IT'S BEEN LIKE THIS PRETTY MUCH SINCE WE BOUGHT IT NEW. I GUESS IT COULD BE SAFETY RELATED BECAUSE SEVERE OIL CONSUMPTION COULD CAUSE A FIRE.

Summary of Complaint

ON 9/25/21, MY ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON. I WENT TO THE DEALERSHIP. THE TEMPERTURE LIGHT AND THE CHECK OIL LIGHT NEVER CAME ON. WHEN THE SERVICE MAN CHECKED THE OIL HE SAID THERE WAS ALMOST NO OIL LEFT IN THE ENGINE. MY DASHBOARD SAID THAT I HAD 18% OIL.THE ENGINE WAS ALSO MAKING A LOUD NOISE AND STOPPING WAS DIFFICULT. THE DEALERSHIP DID AN OIL CHANGE AND TALKED TO ME ABOUT HAVING THE PISTONS CHANGED, CLOSE TO $3,000. I HAD HEARD THE ENGINE NOISE ONCE BEFORE, i BOUGHT THE CAR TO THE DEALERSHIP AND THE SERVICE PERSON REFUSED TO DO AN OIL CHANGE AND HE DID NOT CHECK MY OIL. THE OIL PERCENTAGE AT THAT TIME WAS BETWEEN 33 AND 38%. THE SERVICE PERSON KEPT RANTING THAT THE COMPANY WAS NOT GOING TO PAY FOR THE OIL CHANGE IT WAS TOO EARLY. I HAVE A BUYER PROTECTION PLAN THAT PAYS FOR MY OIL CHANGES. THE DEALERSHIP WANTS TO KNOW HOW BAD THE OIL CONSUMPTION PROBLEM IS SO THEY ARE HAVING ME COME TO THE DEALERSHIP SO THEY CAN CHECK MY OIL IN BETWEEN THIS OIL CHANGE. A FEW DAYS AFTER THE OIL PROBLEM, I RECEIVED IN THE MAIL FROM GM ALERTING ME FOR THE FIRST TIME ABOUT THE OIL CONSUMPTION VRS. DASH BOARD OIL CONSUMPTION USAGE AS INDICATED BY THE CARS COMPUTER. ACCORDING TO ONE OF THE SERVICE PERSONS, GENERAL MOTORS HAS KNOWN ABOUT THE OIL CONSUMPTION PROBLEM BUT THEY HAVE NOT ALERTED THEIR CUSTOMERS. MY WARRANTY HAS EXPIRED, BOTH MY HUSBAND AND I RELY ON SOCIAL SECURITY AS OUR SOURCE OF INCOME. THIS COULD HAVE BEEN AND ENGINE FIRE, LOSS OF LIFE COULD HAVE HAPPENED. GENERAL MOTORS SHOULD HAVE ISSUED A RECALL AND ALERTED THEIR CUSTOMERS OF THIS SERIOUS PROBLEM, INSTEAD OF CHOOSING TO IGNORE IT. THEY SHOULD REALIZE THAT A DEAD CUSTOMER CAN NOT DRIVE A CAR. IF THE ENGINE HAD BLOWN UP BECAUSE OF THE INACCURATE OIL READING, ALERTING THE CUSTOMER SOONER MAY HAVE PREVENTED THE PROBLEM. PRO ACTIVE WORKS BETTER THAN HIDING YOUR HEAD IN THE SAND. I AM TELLING YOU ABOUT THIS PROBLEM SO THAT OTHERS NEVER EXPERIENCE WHAT I DID. THIS MAY BE THE LAST GM CAR I EVER BUY.

Summary of Complaint

Excessive Oil Usage causing a danger if ideal conditions arrive especially on the highway. This is a concern as it could potentially stop my vehicle from running. Note, the majority of my daily commute , to and from work is on the highway. Yes, multiple Firestone techs and also other owners of the same model. Inspected by techs that perform regular maintenance on it. They appeared shortly after the vehicle turned over 100,000 miles. Engine light reveals that there is a problem. The oil that is used should be sufficient until the next scheduled oil change but does not. Note: I reached out to GM with no response. I texted them because a phone call was not being answered. I am requesting that GM takes responsibility for their faulty product. Thank you.

Turned my car on in the morning before work and it started then shut off. A message saying “ engine power reduced” showed up. I had it towed to a mechanic and was told my engine was done. I had gotten an oil change a month and a half prior and no engine light or anything ever came on. I am now going to have to figure out how to pay for a new engine which costs about 4500 with no source of income as I’m a single mom in nursing school. This car needs to be recalled. I was unaware of the previous special coverage and was told there was nothing they could do about it since it had expired last may.

The vehicle stopped while driving in a congested area and again at the traffic light | the dealership confirmed it was a blown engine | apparently, it is a WELL KNOWN issue with so many complaints regarding the vehicle's engine will consume an excessive amount of oil, the smell of gas, smoke, etc from other Equinox owners | This vehicle is unsafe to drive | the NHTSA and GM Motors are aware of the unsafeness and how the vehicle will just shut off immediately | I guess so many people will have to die in an accident before a recall will be placed on this vehicle.

Summary of Complaint

My car received a recall and special coverage notice some months ago and the recall part for the oxygen sensor was fixed but the special coverage they are not wanting to fix the dealership or Gm motors. My Cadillac converter made my pistons go bad because of the oil consumption and there was an open special coverage that I was not notified of last year in 2020 that closed and that would cover the piston ring where so they’re saying they will not cover it anymore even though it was caused by the Cadillac converter that is in the special coverage that is still open for 2022. The dealership at the Chevrolet here in my hometown tells me they are not going to fix it because the coverage is expired on both ends and they’re tired of dealing with me and to go pick up my car. They have also even recommended me to just fill it up with oil every 2500 miles when in reality it’s not even driving those 2500 miles When it eats up the oil. I am risking my car engine blowing out due to this. I am only 19 years old I got this car start my first job and I need it for my job I am risking losing my employment due to this also. They even recommended me that I could drive to my job that’s two hours at a distance back-and-forth so that would be four hours a day and that nothing would happen the next day my engine light turned on showing that the oil fill line was very low. Then they are saying that my paperwork is expired but it is not plus on the paperwork for the special coverage it say that if it is aspired to still fix the deal with the oil consumption. They are taking advantage of me because I am a young woman who is only 19 and they think that I do not know anything about it I feel unsafe driving my car and I want them to fix what needs to be fixed. They are telling me they will not fix it anymore even though the special coverage is still current and they are tired of dealing with me.They told me to go pick up my car because they will not fix it. I am tired of not being heard.

While traveling down one of the main highways outside of Stillwater Ok. While heading into Stillwater our 2013 Equinox lost power and died. We were almost rear ended my a semi. Thank goodness he swerved and we were able to partially be able to coast to the side of the road. As soon as we got to the shoulder and put the car in Park a HUGE puddle of oil gushed out of the car and it had to be towed. The excessive oil consumption that we were not aware of ( and we faithfully had our cars maintained, oil changed, etc) and destroyed the engine of our car. When I first started contacting GM,Chevrolet etc. I was told there was nothing wrong. We put in over $6,000 in our 2013 equinox and would appreciate very much a reimbursement. Thanks- Mp

TECH COMES BACK WITH BROKEN TIMING BELTS AND LATER A SHAVED PISTON $4200 IN REPAIRS. WHEN RESEARCHING THIS IT IS DIRECTLY LINKED TO THE RECALL AND CHEVY WONT STAND BY THE REPAIRS AND COVER THE COST BECAUSE THE DEALERSHIP DIDN'T NOTE EXCESSIVE OIL CONSUMPTION.

Summary of Complaint

FIRST, IN FEB. 13, 2019 MY 2013 EQUINOX THE PCV FROZE CAUSING MY REAR MAIN SEAL TO BLOW. THERE WAS A SERVICE BULLETIN FOR THIS PROBLEM. UNFORTUNATELY, MY VIN # WAS NOT ONE COVERED. THIS COST ME $ 1,714.00. I WAS FORTUNATE ENOUGH THAT SOMEONE NOTICED THE BIG OIL TRAIL MY CAR LEFT ON MY STREET. IF I WOULD NOT HAVE CHECKED IT, I WOULD HAD TRIED TO DRIVE TO WORK AND PROBABLY WOULD HAVE BLOWN MY ENGINE. SO MANY OTHERS HAD THIS HAPPEN WHILE DRIVING. NEVER HAD AN OIL PROBLEM UNTIL AFTER THIS. STARTED NOTICING LATELY THAT I WAS HAVING TO ADD OIL ONCE OR TWICE BETWEEN OIL CHANGES. TOOK IT TO A GM DEALERSHIP TO HAVE IT LOOKED AT. I ENDED UP HAVING TO REPLACE PISTONS, CHAINS, AND SOLENOIDS. I HAD THEM FIX ANYTHING THAT NEEDED DONE. SO, THERE WERE A FEW OTHER THINGS I HAD FIXED THAT DID NOT HAVE TO DO WITH THE OIL CONSUMPTION. IT WAS ANOTHER $ 4,100. 00. MY VEHICLE ONLY HAD 78,500 MILES AT THE TIME. HOWEVER, THERE WAS A CLASS ACTION SETTLEMENT, MY VEHICLE WAS PAST GM'S EXPIRATION 7 YEARS AND 6 MONTHS OR 120,000 MILES WHICH EVER COMES FIRST. GM KNOWS THEY WERE AT FAULT BUT HAS A TIME LIMIT ON FIXING IT. SO, PEOPLE LIKE ME THAT HAVE LOW MILEAGE FOR A 2013, I HAD TO PAY FOR IT. NOW, I AM STILL MAKING PAYMENTS ON THE VEHICLE AND HAVE TO PAY A LOAN TO HAVE IT FIXED. I AM, A SINGLE MOM OF AN 11-YEAR-OLD WITH AUTISM. ALREADY STRUGGLING DURING THE PANDEMIC. I JUST WANT TO SAY HOW DISAPPOINTED I AM IN GM, FOR NOT TAKING CARE OF THEIR ONCE LOYAL CUSTOMERS.
