If you decide to order an Equinox, chose your dealership carefully. I ordered an LT2 4 cyl in early October. Waited 12 weeks and went in to pay for it on 12/28 to get 2009 Federal sales tax credit and the dealer, Courtesy Chevrolet in Phoenix, reneged. They did not honor our contract, said prices increased; they devalued my RAV4 trade in by $3300; and I have yet to receive my $500 deposit. GM is helping me recover that. I have since purchased an Equinox from Garrett Motors in Coolidge (AZ) and my experience was totally satisfying with them. New Equinox is 6 cyl rather than 4 cyl and so far (200 miles) I love it!

Make up a big sign and stand out on the public right of way outside the stealership and picket them saying this dealer cheated me and now won't give me my money back. I bet you won't stand there long as someone will be out with a check in hand. I did that many years ago at a Chevy Dealer who shorted out my radio while fixing dash. He expected me to go without a radio while they sent mine all the way accross the country for repairs.

ran over a spark plug and ruined a tire on my 2010 EQ 2 LT. they are 18 in wheels and had a hard time finding a replacment of the same tire. Dealer can't get at all
finally found a tire shop that found one 200 miles away, Had it overnighted and it is back on the car. Not sure why they are selling cars that you can not get tires for. I understand my problem was a road hazard but expected a little more help from dealer. Anyway if anyone has to replace a tire good luck could take up to 2 weeks and expect around 300.00... car only had 2000 miles
love the car hate unexpected spark plugs LOL">

Interesting that your dealer devalued your Rav4. By the time I got my Nox the dealer devalued my GMC Envoy trade in by $1,500. They were willing to give me back my deposit if I wanted to walk away, but when you wait for two or three months for your new car you don't usually walk away. They must teach these guys how to play this game in sales school. It's a pretty neat way for them to increase their profits!

It was just as much your fault for not putting in the contract that you could get your deposit back if not satified. I have bought many new cars and have never found a dealer who wouldn't put this in there if asked and most I have worked with do this automatically.

I think it is unfortunate that dealers become so greedy when they get a HOT product. We have a dealer in Evansville, Indiana that is charging a thousand dollars over sticker for the Nox. I would like to compliment Patriot Autoplaza In Princeton, Indiana. They gave me a $2000 trade in amount, above Kelly Blue Book on my 09 Malibu ordered my Nox and even let me add whatever options I wanted at dealer invoice. It took exactly three months to the day to receive my Nox and by that time I had added another four thousand miles on the Malibu, but they cheerfully delivered my Nox and accepted my trade.
