#1 of 4 2013 Chevy Equinox Acceleration Issue and.....
Jul 19, 2013 (7:02 pm)
Bought my car (and 3 other cars too) February 2013...the dealer in Phoenix has the worse customer service. I have to drive over 1.50 hr to get there one way....My car seems to accelerate on its own, along with the radio shutting completely off, light dimming going bright when the weather has not changed...makes it very dangerous for driving and very distracting. "Service Director" said he would pull my file and call me to take my car in and he would handle evrything so that I could get a loaner....never heard back from him after sending him several emails and cell text messages. He finally responded when I told him I was filing a BBB complaint (filing tomorrow) and sending a formal letter to GM. GM and Chevy should care about the safety of their customers. Had fog lights installed and the inside indictator worked for a few days...so I can't tell if they are on or off....I still think there is something electrical going on with my car. My biggest concern is the acceleration. I have a huge list of complaints regarding this dealership and their employees. Have not owned a Chevy since 1980......NEVER will I buy another Chevy!!! Can't wait to trade this car in........ My daughter as well has already filed a complaint for her Sonic! She wants then to exchange her car....looks like we need to call a lwayer soon. Once they get you to sign on the dotted line, customer services goes out the door!!

Contact GM by phone, and speak to a Customer Service Representative. (You will find a phone number in your "owners package" in the glove compartment.) Make a list of all the issues with your vehicles. ----- Be VERY PROFESSIONAL with both GM and the dealer. ------ Open a "case number" on each vehicle. ---- When you present your vehicle for service, give the "case number" to the Service Advisor at the dealership. You now have both GM and the dealer working on these issues. I had a problem with a 2010 LTZ Malibu that was resolved to my satisfaction using this method! ------- For a problem to be solved, EVERYONE has to be on the same page! ------- Remember, BE PROFESSIONAL! ---- With a new vehicle, you are under warranty, so you should be getting a loaner vehicle to use. ------ Best regards! ------ Dwayne
