CarComplaints.com Notes: The 2006 Equinox is plagued by a heating problem, as in the heater only blows cold air.

The reported cause of this problem is a small door, known as the air temperature blend door, which allows air to flow past the heater core. This door has a plastic connecting shaft to an electric motor and the shaft is prone to breaking after a few years. The problem has a typical repair cost of over $800.

The 2006 Equinox also has a number of reported problems ranging from the key getting stuck in the ignition, to failing speed sensors, and trouble starting the engine. All in all, this car sounds like one worth avoiding.

I have had my Equinox for almost 4 months. I can't play a cd in the cd player. It starts to play and then skips and won't play the cd. I have tried playing a variety of cd's and I can't get them to work. It has worked up to this point. But now it won't work at all. It spits out the cd after it skips and won't play. Anyone else have this happen?
