Just received a letter from Chevrolet about a "customer satisfaction program". Instead of fixing the engine oil consumption problem, they will reprogram the ECU that recommend more frequent oil changes to support engine durability and overall operating costs.
What a joke, GM is implicitly admitting the wide spread problem and tries to cover it up by forcing more frequent oil changes.
What a joke.

Sueven - I just got the same letter on Friday, March 8th... and ironically it was dated Feb 1, 2013 and the offer to reprogram the ECU was only good until Feb 28, 2013. Thankfully my awesome dealer did the work when they put the new engine in.... Too bad the letter didn't give a return address as I would have sent the joker who signed the letter a response about the issues with this car....

smc8888, You are talking about two completely different things. The reprogram has to due with oil change frequencies suggested by the oil life monitor and has nothing to do with and is not intended to address the oil consumption problem some owners are experiencing.
#1888 of 2346 Recall for engine control Module - 2010 NOX
Mar 12, 2013 (5:36 am)
This recall is good through February 2015 depending on month you purchased your 2010 Nox. The intent ios to get owners to change oil on a regular schedule or appropriate time; the worn broken down oil will cause internal excessive unnessisary engine wear. being said; the idiot gauge that monitores engine oil life is not a smart way to gauge oil changes in this 4 cyl. or any other engine. Oil changes are cheap and good insurance for your warranty protection.

I believe the letter said Feb 28, 2015. By which time, I will ditch my wife's Nox. I have told her to listen for any abnormal sounds.

I was never sent ANYTHING from Chevy. Nada. They have blacklisted my truck for now. I cant even get Chevy to change the oil. The dealer who was working with me for so long has just been advised by the local GM Rep that there is NOTHING WRONG with my truck and is no longer authorized to work on it. I had to take it to STS for my oil change.
Cant wait to know the outcome from ALL OF MY PUBLIC OUTBURST!! There is NOTHING I wont do to keep my daughter safe. Nothing.

I have not posted anything here since I traded my 2010 Equinox for a Ford, but I do follow the updates everyday.
I have been getting emails from GM about my satisfaction with my Equinox...they don't even know, that I don't own it any more!
Just got my letter today from the "customer satisfaction program"...how sad that GM is covering up their engine problems with more frequent oil changes, what a joke.
My question is: Has anyone contacted their US Senators or Congressman concerning this cover-up by GM? Maybe if all of us sent them emails, they would look into this...
What do you think?
#1892 of 2346 vibrating issues
Mar 14, 2013 (8:10 am)
i have been reading everyone's posts and i feel sick to my stomach that i made the same mistake! i wish i read this before buying this car but i was really excited that i felt like i got a great deal...a 2010 with only 46,000 miles on it. unfortunately the day we went to pick the car up we been having issues and that was a month ago. first the engine light was on and we brought it to sales person's attention but he said its not a big deal it just got detailed so that could have triggered it and for us to take it for the weekend and if it doesn't go away to bring it back. so as we were driving out my boyfriend told me to park it so he can drive to keep in eye on how the car was driving...so when i parked the car started vibrating really bad so we went in to get the sales person and asked if they can at least put it on the machine and tell us what the problem is...the mechanic was there for a good couple of minutes before my boyfriend told them he wants to look at what it says before he erases it and right when we went over to the car the mechanic said that right when he hooked it up it turned off...which we both know that he just erased it! so from day one of purchasing the car i've been feeling horrible about my decision!
we took the car home and the next day the engine light was on again so we decided to got to advanced (sunday)and have them check it that way we would have known what the issue was before we brought it to the dealer in case they tell us it just turned off again...but for some reason advance's machine didn't go up to 2010 models they still plugged it in...i swear i had planned to take the car in on monday (we bought it fri) and it was on all weekend until monday it turned off so i decided not to take it but the vibrating was sill there. i noticed that it would vibrate/shake more when it was on eco mode so i turned it off but it was still there. so i did my own research on here and on youtube. on youtube it had a thing about the fuel leaking into the oil in the 2010 equinox that it was a defective fuel pump. so i printed that and some of the msgs on here to show them that there is something def something wrong. it was last week that i took the car in and they call me telling me that the fuel pump is defective and that the part will come in tomorrow so i asked for a rental since i had to work the next day they agreed. so before i went to get the car they called me that they got my car fixed and i can pick my car up instead. so when i picked the car up the vibrating is still there i called them the next morning and they said they couldn't look at it to the following week. so the car was back at the dealer this past wednesday and they are telling me nothing is wrong with the car whatever little vibrating its doing is normal...? i told them that i want them to send the car to a chevy dealer so that they can look at it which was sent today and they just called me today saying thats it normal that they drove their other cars with the same engine or whatever and its the same.....so is this normal? or should i take it to another chevy dealer plus i have a 3 month warranty through the dealer i bought it from so i dont know if there will be any issues if i had someone else look at it.
