#953 of 1036 Still having problems... Imagine that!
Jan 12, 2013 (7:20 pm)
Posted in December about all my issues with my 2011 Nox. Took it in, again. After they drove it and used a lot of my gas, they couldn't find a problem. Don't know why it stalled or why it hesitates after stopping. Since then.... It continues to hesitate (not a good feeling when pulling out into traffic with your children in the back seat) and now it just decides not to crank. Oh wait... Now it cranks.... Oh well now it won't. Can you feel my frustration. My interpretation of what Dealership told me is... We won't be able to fix it until it breaks down. What a great idea for a working mom with two children. Can't wait to trade this in. We will lose money, but I can't keep doing this. I can't afford this vehicle and its problems. Very disappointed!

I can't imagine why GM would not want to make us all happy and stop the bleeding. They don't seem to get it! The social media highway is getting wider and the sound of traffic stronger. GM is walking in the middle of the road, and they have their backs to the headlights!

Took Nox in again. They have ordered a fuel pump module. I am def not a car expert, but I don't see how that has anything to do with the stabilitrak and steering service lights that came on after not cranking. It sound more like the problem I was having the entire 2012 year that they could never figure out. (Or were they just putting it off? makes me wonder) Who knows. Goal for this week= trade it in and start over with something other than a Chevy.

Let us know what you get on the trade-in. You would thnk GM/Chevrolet would start doing a financial analysis on what this is costing them in non-billable resources. Or is obsolesence now buid into the cost of building a car.
GM - wake up!

I will do everything in my power to make sure any person I come in contact with for the rest of my life will never buy another GM product. My truck is at the dealer as we speak getting a new engine.. this is not what I signed up for when leasing this vehicle....The offer of the day was 2000 credit towards another one of their pieces of crap.....just terminate they lease and move on.....
Social media here I come - it will be my life long duty to make sure every one with an Equinox is made aware of the engine problem and demand action!!!
#958 of 1036 2010 Nox Issues / Warranty Matters
Jan 22, 2013 (1:31 pm)
WOW...I have had some issues as well; owned my 2010 4cyl 50000 mi Nox for the last 40 months and I'm really rather pleased with this SUV and Dealer service. Bashing GM will not solve your vehical issues; be glad you have a warranty; JUST LET GM Dealer make repairs. I have not had one issue getting "MY" Warranty repairs made to my Nox and Always offered a "free" loaner at the Dealer.....I have a difficult time understanding why some consumers have such outragious "service issues" with these GM warranty issues / matters. Being said; I will purchase my 2nd Chevy Nox when the 2014 Equniox hits the street this fall; this is a safe vehical smart purchase for the money!

I would agree except this vehicle is unsafe and has left me stranded with my kids.... next stop class action law suit! Only saving grace is responsive service department,,,,,I am luckier than most! 10 more months until I can give the piece of crap back - hopefully I dont get killed from now til then. Any one interested in starting a class action law suit?

They offered me a lousy 2000 credit towards another one of their pieces of crap....
any interest in starting a class action law suit? Only takes 3 of us....
My truck is getting a new engine - what new car needs a new engine after 45k miles? Own up to this design flaw and let people out of their leases or provide replacements for those who bought this piece of junk!!
So much for buying american - my lifes goal - to tell everyone I know to stay away from GM!!!

Hi I'm having some of the same problems I have a 2011 with only 17,700 miles. My car cut off 3 times while I was driving the vehicle is jerking while driving and it's making a loud noise. I took it to the dealer and they told me I need a Timing chang and 2 valves for a new car? I would like to be in on this law suite as well.

I would definitely be interested in a class action law suit! I traded and all they gave me was $3000... my2011 equinox was consuming oil and stalling along with other numerous problems. My truck had been in the shop numerous times and they couldnt figure out what was wrong. It took the right mechanic to notice durning an oil change that there was only a quart of oil in my truck. They were going to put a new motor in it. I did not want a new vehicle that had been ripped to pieces. Not what I signed up for. I was 18 months into the vehicle. I put $1500 cash down too. So in the long run I was almost $10, 000 paid out on this vehicle between my down payment and monthly payments. NowmI'm starting all over with a new loan. I hate GM. I can not believe they get away with this because this is a serious problem.They are making money doing this to people. And we are the ones loosong big $$$$ BECAUSE THEY THROW THAT VEHICLE BACK ON THE LOT AND SCREW THE NEXT PERSON. My story goes on and on so I will stop here.
