Good morning kev403,
I do work for General Motors (we do use an gm.com email address for private communication as indicated in my last post: socialmediagm.com). What we do as Customer Service Representatives is document that you're having this concern in a file attached to your name and the VIN of your vehicle, we would contact your dealership to get a better feel for what is going on technically, and would stay with you until hopefully the concern is resolved.

Chevy knows there is a problem with the computer chip and all the service bullitens that are out on this.
We bought a 2012 in march of 12. At about 5,000 miles we notice the car was missing slightly in the transmission. We took it to the dealer and they said they could not find anything. We we still would get the problem once in a while. We now have 18,000 miles on it and its in the shop again for the same thing. They said it was the computer chip. The next day they called and said many service bullitens where out on the 2012 equinox transmission. We are no on day 3 as they basiclly rebuilt the trans, No they are waiting to program the computer chip. So don't let them tell you there is nothing wrong. Press the issue. Im so disappointed. Chevy make tuff cars, but when the trans slips at 5,000 miles something is wrong.

We have a 2012 6 cyl. coincidentally purchased in March of 2012 as well. We had some odd transmission slipping in several instances of shifting in and out of park, especially into reverse - right from the start. We also had occasional messages to "Service Stabilitrak" I noticed this occurred when anything at all substantial was put in the rear cargo area. Each time we called the dealership and were told this is normal "adjustment" and to be sure we're not shifting with our foot off the brake etc.
I am very disappointed to learn there are service bulletins out and no one is telling us. We cannot afford to take time off and be without a vehicle - but it looks like we may be headed toward major inconvenience and possible safety issues(?) My other car is a 2013 Equinox. Could there be similar issues with that one as well?

Hi all - I goggled my problem and found this website. My vehicle is jerking and my feet on not even on the gas. It almost made me rear end the car in front of me and caught me so off guard.
Dropped my car off at Chevy Performance this morning in Chapel Hill and they state they can't duplicate it. This is a major safety concern. I have emailed GM customer care today as well.
Service claims there's no service alerts on this problem but you all are reporting numerous alerts. Why don't they just fix it?

Is there anything in the works for a class action lawsuit for this vehicle. I had read somewhere that something was being put together, I would like to participate since my 2010 is currently at the dealer for engine replacement, and by reading the reviews replacing the motor doesn't solve the issues.
