The contact owns a 2007 Chevrolet Equinox. The contact stated that the very first day he took the vehicle home, it broke down. All the instrument panel lights illuminated and flickered, and the vehicle would stall. While driving 25 mph, the vehicle would completely shut down and lost all power steering and braking ability. The computer would reset itself and then restart. The failure would occur intermittently. He took the vehicle to the dealer approximately 14-15 times and they attempted to repair the failure, but it was never remedied. After he stated that the vehicle was a lemon, the dealer stated that nothing was wrong with the vehicle. He consulted the manufacturer and was informed that if the dealer could not duplicate the failure. The current mileage was 6,025 and failure mileage was approximately 10.

After the vehicle has been parked over night or for a long period of time ( a couple of hours) the brakes make a loud pitched squealing noise. This happens for the first 3 to 4 times you hit the brakes and then stops. I have only owned the car for a month and bought the car brand new. The noise is getting progressively worse and when I took it to the dealer they told me that this noise is normal.
