#1 of 40 2006 Equinox transmission issues?
Feb 16, 2010 (12:59 pm)
Greetings, My daughter has a 2006 equinox that has about 40,000 miles, few if any problems with the vehicle up to now. Beginning recently, especially when the car is cold, driving up a hill results in the tachometer reaching 3,000 or 4,000 rpm's and the car slowing to about 10 mph. Increasing the engine speed does not increase the speed of the vehicle, it is almost as if the transmission is "slipping". Shifting into L2 helps a little. She says the problem is not always present. The Chevy dealer indicated they have not run across this problem before. Has anyone else had this problem?

Yes I have a 2006 also and just a little over 40k and I have the same problem along with many others. I will be taking mine in to the dealer to leave with them to check out my transmission along with steering and a few other things. I will keep you posted on the transmission issue and let you know what they say...
#3 of 40 Me Too: Equinox '06 transmission slippage
Apr 13, 2010 (5:17 am)
Just lik you guys, I have a 2006 Equinox, no problems, warranty expired at 36,000 miles, and at 39,000 I'm getting slippage in first gear. I press on the accelerator, the engine tac increases accordingly, but the car creeps forward from a standstill at one or two mph. L4 doesn't solve it, L2 works. Then the problem goes away for a couple days and returns. Kerry11, did you learn anything from the dealer? I'm taking it into the dealer tomorrow.

#7 of 40 2010 Equinox acceleration
Apr 19, 2010 (4:18 am)
I have a 2010 Equinox LTZ AWD 6 cyl and noticed a pronounced engine down surge every time I accelerate. If I am cruising at say 35 mph and then need to get to 55, as I press the accelerator the car will dip in front and bog down for a few seconds. It will then rev high and accelerate. Same situation if I am cornering and lift off the accelerator and then resume power after the turn; it bogs down for a few seconds. Anyone experience this?

I am from GM Customer Service. I would recommend taking the vehicle to the dealership to have the issue diagnosed. That way you know for certain what the problem is. Thank you,

No offense but this forum is supposed to help owners/consumers with data and insight so we know a little BEFORE we go to the dealer. Not sure why GM would monitor this and offer the obvious.
