My 10 2LT with the 4cylinder was produced the week of October 19th. The transmission shifting is very good. No problems to report.

I have been having problems with my transmission since the day I drove it off the lot. My tranny shifts rough between 30 and 40mph (third gear). All other gears seem to be shifting fine. I will forward my vin tomorrow. Took it to the dealer they said they installed a software upgrade. Helped for about 2 weks then it returned.
#62 of 90 tire pressure warning light - equinox 2010
Sep 29, 2010 (4:44 am)
ive owned my equinox for about 8 months. since driving off the lot, every two months the tire pressure light would go on, warning me about the back left tire. the first time, i manually checked the pressure of that tire and it was, in fact, low, so i pumped it. the second time, i went to a dealer to check the tire out, and while again, the pressure of that tire was low, they said it was not damaged. the third time, i brought it to a different dealer, who also said it was not damaged but low pressure, and rotated the tires. so now i had a different tire in that back left position. a few days ago, for the 4th time, that same back left tire has low pressure -- and this time it is a different tire (post-rotation). any ideas???

Do you have aluminum wheels - could be a porous spot on it leaking, a bad fit with the tire bead, or a bent rim.

Did they reprogram the sensors to read correctly? Didn't on wifes Caddy and right rear was low but each time I checked it all was well. Finally read so low it sat off the alarm as it was 10lbs. low. Dealer figured out they didn"t program the tires to their new positions and I made them replace it do to the 3+ months of low pressure.

How long did it take to get your V6 Equinox (from the day you placed the order to actual delivery)? GM just announced that "Holiday Savings" deal (0%, plus $1500 rebate) and it runs through Jan 3rd. I'd like to take advantage of it - ideally with the exact vehicle I want, but there's probably not enough time for that, right? Doesn't it take about 8 weeks? And you only get whatever rebate deal is in place (if any) when the vehicle arrives, right? Isn't that how it works?
I've searched all over and I can't find an LT1 V6 equipped the way I want it. I'm starting to think it doesn't even exist. Making things worse, there just aren't many V6's out there! I'd say the ratio is something like 100:1 in favor of the 4-cylinder model. All I really want for options is Cargo Management and the Camera. Do you know if you can ORDER an option separately that is normally only sold as part of a package? For 2011, the Camera was included in the new "Driver Convenience Package", along with the power seat and remote start. I never buy a power seat due to the height difference between my wife and I, and I don't really care about the remote start feature. But I can see how the camera might be very useful if not necessary on these vehicles, so I'd like to have it. If I could order the Camera separately, that would be another reason to place an order (even if I don't get any of the rebate deals when the vehicle finally arrives).
Also, there is the possibility that GM runs the Owner Loyalty rebate in the January / February timeframe. It seems like they've been doing that steadily for the past several years now...

And when you special order, what kind of price can I expect to pay? Do you just pay MSRP less any rebate? Do you get out of paying the "advertising fee" and/or "doc fee", or do they still hit you for those? The advertising fee is the one they use to bump up the Edmunds invoice number on the front-end. The doc fee, of course, is the bomb they drop on you on the back-end.
