Buying an Equinox would be the worst decision you EVER made. We bought a new 2012 in June, and I cry everyday a have to drive it. It's been in the shop five times, and needs to go back in for a dash rattle that they ALREADY have had to take the dash out to fix. It's unsafe, and I have been told, "SORRY" we can NOT duplicte the problem so many times I can spit.

OK...I just purchased a 2012 LTZ 6cyl two days ago and am considering asking for my car back tomorrow! I was driving down the road today...car felt a little Jerky, then the stabilitrak light came on and the check engine light started flashing. I pulled into a parking lot...turned it off then turned it back on and everything is fine.
I'm reading all of the posts about how everyone is afraid to drive their Equinox's and well...i am now!! With all of these posts...has anyone experienced the same issue and had a solution???
Really looking for some good news!

I'm sorry, but I'm not the one to ask for good news. I've had this car Since June and have been completely unsatisfied. For the look and all the bells and whistles, you could not ask for a better car. I've had the whole dash removed the fix a rattle, that's still there. An engine coil replaced. Two times it stalled in the middle of heavy traffic and then decided to go. The seat is extremely uncomfortable after a 20 min. drive. The control for the radio on the steering wheel decided not to work one day, they are good now. And my USB port disconnects all the time.
I hate to be a Debbie Downer, but the car just sucks, or at least mine does! There are tons on the rode, and many people who love theirs, maybe that will be you. I wish you the best of luck. Keep us posted on what you do.
Curious, did you buy brand new or used? Miles?

We're sorry that you're experiencing these troubles on your Equinox. Have you already consulted your dealership on this?

I took it into the shop this morning. They gave me a loaner to drive while they are working on mine. It's an LT not an LTZ...the ride in the loaner is a lot smoother than mine. In mine you can feel everytime it changes a gear...up or down. So of course I called to let them know so that they will be aware of it. I'm hoping it's a bad sensor...and not the whole transmission. My dealer in NC bought it from a deal in FL who used it as a courtesy car. It only has 8800 miles on it.
At this point I'm terrified because of a previous experience with a past car that was in the shop 9 times within the 1st month I had it!!!

OK...Update. Picked it up from the shop today and they told me that yes indeed it did misfire and the cause was because they put too much oil in the car. As of right now it hasn't misfired.
The transmission issue...they chalked up to the car getting to know my driving habbit.
So fingers crossed and stay tuned!! Not sure I by it but we'll see.
The guys in the Bill Black Chevy Service department did do everything they knew to do. The guy that they put on quirky cases...like mine drove it for about 60 miles today after they cleared the codes and he said it worked fine for him. A second guy drove it around just to get a second opinion and then the Service Manager rode around with me so he could see and feel what I was feeling. Everything was ok...switching gears was a little rough...but not bad on a couple of occasions but nothing for me to flip out about. As he said..."it's the computer getting to know your driving style". Although later...i was parked on a hill and it didn't want to back up...so as i said we'll see! Thanks everyone for the comments. if anything else happens I'll be sure to let you know!

I bought the 2012 Equinox LT Feb of 2012. I have had zero issues and have no regrets for the purchase. The vehicle is wonderful. I'm in Oregon and have driven the AWD in snow and rain. It does everything it should, and it does it well.
And for the record, I love the bucket seats too (with Lumbar support).
My NOXey is fantastic and I have recommended it to many friends.
