#752 of 1111 2011 Chevy Equinox 2.4 Uses oil runs rough and is noisey all the time
Mar 25, 2012 (7:29 pm)
The car has 65000 miles on it and uses a quart of oil every 1,000 miles Does t have a leak and is serviced reguarly every 3000 miles. Using mobil 5w30 syn. Like it requires. Engine runs rough when it is first started but clears up once it runs for a few minutes. Just recently the noise has appeared. I don t plan taking any bull from the Dealer. I know as a former Auto Tech what containaments do ta an engine. I will be takeing the car to the dealer this week. With all the service bulletins i ve read GM will have there hands full when dealing with me. They have one shot to get it right. :

We have the same problems with shifting and now starting to stall. Our dealer says they weren't able to duplicate the problem. My husband and I are on disability and bought the car because of the comfort and MPG. The highest we have ever gotten is 25. The dealer did a fuel induction they said was due at 30,000 miles -cost us $130 and our MPG dropped to 18. After 7 tanks of gas we are up to 21 MPG. We tried to trade in the car but couldn't get more than $17000 for a trade-in. Apparently other dealers know of the problems with the Equinox but not Chevy. We have had the car 14 months and have put 34000 miles on it. We want another vehicle if Chevy can't fix this one-further down the road I foresee major tranny and engine problems. We can't afford what these will cost in the future. Please help us.

#757 of 1111 2011 Chevy Equinox Problems
Apr 05, 2012 (4:17 pm)
My 2011Chevy Equinox under 29,000 miles.
I have the same problem like everyone else. Vehicle's engine stalled when i waiting for the traffic light. The same fault has occurred five times. Also the vehicle jumps and jerks often.
I bring my car to the dealer today. They said it was a computer failure, then they reprogram engine module to fix it.
I just worry that the same thing will happen again.

#759 of 1111 2011 gone..........2102 V6 and no problems
Apr 17, 2012 (9:11 am)
The dealership and GM took my defective 2011 back and gave me a 2012 V6 and so far it is fantastic. I drove one for a month as a loaner before making the decision to stick with the Equinox and have been pleasantly surprised and I am glad that GM made it right. My 2012 has a transmission made in the USA, not in Korea and it is a V6 not the 4 cyl I had before and it is like a totally different vehicle.
#760 of 1111 2011 Air Conditioner Issue
Apr 17, 2012 (10:53 am)
Has anyone experienced a problem with their air conditioner? Yesterday is was almost 90 in the NY area and with the air conditioner settings at max and the lowest possible temperature the vehicle never cooled off.
Sending it to the dealership tomorrow, hopefully they can identify the problem and find the cause easily.
I have been truly happy with my Equinox and I am really hoping this won't cause my opinion to change.

Do not be offended but did you remember to 'punch' the control to turn on the A/C... it should be lit up... I remember a couple of times last year where I somehow bumped the A/C off by accident.... Couldn't figure it out until I saw the control light wasn't on...
Kind of the same topic... I have been quite displeased with the size and placement of the front dash vents. I can never seem to get them to actually blow on me for heat or cooling.
