#7 of 8 Engine Replacement in 2010 Equinox
Aug 13, 2012 (8:45 am)
I have experienced the same classic symptoms (fuel in oil and engine sounds like diesel)everyone else has reported here. My engine was replaced in July after the May bulletin was issued by GM. I've been driving the car for about 3 weeks. Everything has been positive thus far. I'm still experiencing poor gas mileage. The best I have ever gotten is 23 mpg with regular gas. I have not yet tried a premium gasoline with the new engine. The noise in the engine and other issues have been resolved as far as I know. I'm taking the car in for a air conditioning belt change (coolant was spilled on it during the work) and I'll have the oil checked then just in case.
Once the bulletin was issued on the engine, I received excellent service at my local dealer. The car was addressed promptly and I was given a rental car. The staff was professional and courteous. Having said that, I will not buy another GM car. This vehicle was not properly tested before it was released for sale to the public and I will not pay $30,000+ for the privilege of being a guinea pig. They have lost my family's business forever with this one.
