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.

The contact stated approximately one week after purchasing the vehicle she smelled gasoline. When she called the dealership, they advised her not drive the vehicle because the fumes could ignite. They gave her the number for Chevrolet to arrange to have the vehicle towed, but she could not contact anyone. She drove the vehicle to the dealership, and they stated the fuel line and fuel canister needed to be replaced. The parts have been redesigned and were on order. The dealership stated the vehicle could be driven, but there were no repairs done.
