Equinox 6-cyl

I went to leave for work in the early morning, and started my car to warm up, and then I started to pull out of the drive way and my car would not turn.I also noticed that the "service stabilitrak message was on. The steering felt like it was locked up. So I pulled back into the drive, which was very hard to do, and waited till that morning for the deal ship to open to take it in. I took it to the deal and they said it was the power steering control module. There was a recall on the power steering motor at this time but not on the module at this time.after having to pay $678 dollar ro repair this, then I see more and more problems of the same thing on this problem, why is Chevy not looking in to this for there costumer. This is a very serious problem and the car can lock up on you when you are driving, and I keep see it recurring more.

Have had my 2007 Equinox since 2009 with a few problems. Stabilitrac light coming on....A/C not turning on....window washer fluid not spraying. But today, out of nowhere, a gas smell. No visible leak, just the smell. After searching on line and seeing numerous complaints about the same problem, I wonder, do I try and find out the problem through a mechanic and probably spend a fortune or wait to see if a GM realizes there is a problem and wait for a recall.

Vehicle has temporary loss of power for things like dash board lights, radio, power locks and additionally I hear popping noises from front end of car and to add to this frustration on Sunday the power steering completely failed with no previous warning indicators. Fortunately, I was in a parking space and simply could not steer my car to exit. I have had it repaired at the cost of over $700.

The AWD on my 2007 Equinox has been exceptionally loud ever since I bought the car. I just figured it was supposed to be like that and didn't worry about it since it came on whenever we had a heavy rain. This past winter, I go stuck in a snowstorm and my AWD never came on, which led to me losing control of my vehicle. Luckily, I didn't crash but hated the entire experience since I had my two small children with me. Anyway, over the weekend (9/10/2010), my stabilitrak service light came on. Since I was also having problems getting the key out of the ignition, I took it to a dealership who told me the main computer (BCM) needs to be replaced. This computer is the reason why my AWD doesn't operate properly and the reason why my key cannot be pulled out of the ignition.

Stabilitrack on the 2007 Chevy Equinox will reduce the power to the engine and the engine will cut off while driving, sometimes, leaving no breaks to completely stop. I was driving out to lunch the first time when I approached a railroad track whose barrier was coming down, as I was only going 25 mph, I started slowing down. My engine cut out but the car continued to go forward. The breaks wouldn't work and finally got it to come to a complete stop before hitting the car in front of me (who was right in front of the barrier). Took it to the dealership and had them clean out the area around the throttle sensor. Apr 08, 2010, I had my car die on my twice in less than 12 hours while driving it. The second time was right in the middle of a busy 4 way stop. Luckily, it continued to roll until it stopped a few feet away on the side of the road. Steering was difficult enough when upset that you might cause an accident. Now the dealership won't see me until Monday (this is my only mode of transportation) and I will probably have to pay them again to fix a problem that should have been solved less than 2 months ago!

The stabilitrac comes on it seems every 4-6 months and each time I take to the dealer (twice since purchase) they make adjustments but the light/issue comes back. When the light is on and it rains the traction on the surface is terrible! the vehicle pulls and presents an issue of safety for the driver.

2007 Chevy Equinox, with 43,717 miles, stabilitrak light came on and car would not start. Had to be jump started and then while trying to drive, the entire steering column was very difficult to drive or turn. Car would want to turn off every once in a while. Turned into mckinney Chevy dealership, and they replaced electronic power steering (eps) fuse.

I had 2 Chevy Equinox 2007 model, loaded. First vehicle repurchased due to multiple episodes of stabilitrak failure, turn signals quit working, radio problems, passenger system airbag not working, and finally failure of main airbag system. Given exact twin of first car, as thought that car was just a lemon. 2nd Equinox had 2 episodes of stabilitrak failure, and a new steering column placed, and then had total system failure of the steering, brakes, gas, stabilitrak, and airbag system while driving the vehicle. I had absolutely no control over any of these systems! you could turn my steering wheel 360 degrees, and the wheels never moved, the brakes didn't work, the gas didn't work, and all alarms were going off that the systems, including the airbags were not working. Luckily, no one was injured as I had just begun making a turn into roadway and all vehicles coming at me both ways were able to swerve, and the car was going slow enough and over a slight incline that it rolled to a stop just before hitting a steel light post. This car was also repurchased. Something is very wrong in the engineering of this vehicle and I am concerned for all the other people owning/driving this vehicle.
