#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.

I am Colt Hero from this forum. I would recommend taking the vehicle to the dealership to have the issue diagnosed. That way you know for certain that you need a new transmission. Thank you,

If y'all don't want to take GM's advice that's fine. But I think it's good that a rep is participating. Not many manufacturer's reps hang out on the forums.
What else would you suggest? Disconnect the battery for 5 minutes so the computer relearns the shift points? Go to AutoZone and see if any codes are stored? Run a tank of premium?

If you review the other topics in this forum, you'll notice the exact same post from the "rep" directing everyone to the dealership. It's a sales scam to get customers in the door. This forum is supposed to offer insight and possible solutions or at least allow consumers to share experiences and pain. If you are a GM shill, congratulations, you got us. Otherwise, you should also be suspect of a "rep" who "participates" by directing us to the dealer (with a cut and paste no less!). Give me a break.

Well, I was just having a little fun because the input was silly. Anyone who's bought a new vehicle that is still under warranty is going to take it to the dealership for service whenever something is wrong with it. I think that goes without saying.
A legitimate GM customer service person (and we don't know if this person is legitimate or not) COULD be helpful for things like TSB numbers, resolving issues with dealerships, or other "light-lifting".

AutoZone sells a lot of parts when people go there to get their codes read for free.
Maybe GM will figure out that offering a free diagnosis will help keep people at the shop for the work to be done.
And yes, the GM rep here is legit.
