Has anyone had the occasion of driving on a rainy day, or through a car wash, and having your 2005 Chevy Equinox get "stuck"? It's like it's in neutral. When it dries out, you're ready to go, but not until it's dried out. I've also noticed that the day running lights also flicker then go out when it's raining, or in a car wash.
I would love some feedback please......I've got no idea!

I am from GM Customer Service. Have you taken your vehicle to the dealership to have them look at the concern? What is the VIN on the vehicle, and the current mileage? Thank you,

#1562 of 1701 Update in the leaky NOX
Apr 09, 2010 (1:57 pm)
Well after several days and tries at the dealership to fix the torrent of water comming in the cabin, the dealer asked when I had the windshield replaced because they had traced the issue to the windshield. I had to think long and hard and even had to call the insurance company to find out if I had ever had it replaced. turns out I did, IN 05, the dealer said that it was a aftermarket window that was installed improperly and had leaked. When I asked why did it take 5 years to do this there was a dumfounded look on thier face. So I got the windshield replaced and of course it stopped raining in the desert sooooo we shall see what happens when the monsoons come back this summer.

I'm rotating the tires on my 2007 Equinox with 16" wheels. Can't find the wheel torque setting in the manual or on the pillar. Anyone know what it is?

A) Run a water hose over it for 15 minutes and flood the seals. B) Take it to a drive through car wash. The pressure from the blowers that remove the excess water should send water inside to be sure it's sealed.

#1567 of 1701 2010 Equinox Sway Bars
May 18, 2010 (3:07 pm)
I really like my wife's 2010 Equinox. She has had it for over six months now and it has less than 3,000 miles on it. But... it has had to go into the shop twice for sway bar problems. Who ever heard of that??? I have had a multitude of cars over my 63 years and none have ever had sway bar problems. It sounds like the whole front end is coming apart when they go bad, pretty scary. Let's see how long these things last. We have gone through a left and a right in the past month. The dealership says they must have gotten some "bad" ones in. Reading other posts make me suspicious that Chevy has a problem here.
#1568 of 1701 Extended Warranty for 2006 Equinox LS
May 19, 2010 (5:09 am)
I'm in the process of buying a 2006 Equinox LS for $11K and am researching Extended Warranty plans. Can't believe they're so expensive. Can just about afford the vehicle. Does anyone have a 2006 and, if so, what repairs have your experienced? Any company with a bad reputation? Who should I not deal with? I've heard of so many scams. What is a good warranty? Carchex said their warranties are bumper-to-bumper but don't know if I believed the rep. Awaiting his comparison plans. I want to be able to take it to my local mechanic - not the dealer - it's too far. Is it advisable to go with a GMPP? Have there been any recalls? So many questions. Will appreciate any information.
