Chevy site suggests the programmable power lift gate is only available as an option with the 2LT. Can anyone confirm that is is not an option for the 1LT or LS. this is my first post. thanks

For the 2010 and 2011 Chevrolet Equinox, the liftgate, power programmable rear with fixed glass is an available option starting on the 2LT and is standard for the LTZ trim level. Unfortunately, the power liftgate is not an available option for the LS or 1LT trim levels.

Thanks for the clarification. Two additional GM questions
1. Can the extended GM protection plan be purchased towards the end of the 3 year/36K mile new car warrantee?
2. When are the new price increases going into effect, and does this affect the Equinox?

The GM protection plans have to be purchased within the Bumper to Bumper warranty (3 year/36,000).
Unfortunately, I do not have specific pricing information available for these plans. This is something you will need to discuss with the dealership.

My 2005 Equinox lift gate all of the sudden stopped working?? I can't get it to unlock even when I use the key fob or unlock button. Anyone have any ideas on how to get it unlock so I can open it?

Yup, just got the GM app in the mail today. What I don't like is that the extended warranty starts the day you sign up, not at then end of the OEM warranty. If you start before your OEM ends, there coverage overlap. They offer two versions, Value and Major. For 36K/36mo, Value Guard is $1190+tax with a $200 deductible and $1420 with $0 deductible, Major Guard is $1260 for same $200 deductible plan. I recall them trying to talk me into signing up when I bought it and the price was like $2300 likely with a sales guy mark up.
"Major " - defines coverage by excluding certain maintenance type parts
"Value" - defines coverage by naming covered parts
For $70 go Major
#8 of 16 2010 Equinox Liftgate problem

The power liftgate on my Nox periodically opens by itself. I was in the store today after locking the vehicle, came out and the power liftgate was OPEN. The fob was in my purse.
This has happened about 4 times in the last 6 months and before that, it never happened.
Called the dealer and service dept. said there were no bulletins or other complaints.

May be a tough call. I go through spells once in a while with the Terrain where I accidently mash this button or that button on FOB while its in my pocket. Either hit the alarm.lock button multiple times(causing horn to beep), of find the hatch up. Then again there might be problem beyond that.

Thanks, ray80--the dealer thinks it is something hitting it in my purse but I just don't know. The service mgr said to bring it in and they would double check it for me. That is my next step.
