Equinox LT

  • Automatic transmission

Imagine traveling with your family 1,000 miles from home in the hot summer heat and your air conditioner stops working suddenly and you are advised that you need to replace the entire AC system. Enough said.

Equinox LT 2.4L

I get cold air when its cold outside and hot air when it is hot outside. Sometimes it works right, but it is a toss of the coin. So many other problems but I can't find all receipts and I am out of money. I cannot keep missing work for this car. I'm behind on all my bills because this car won't be fixed. I don't know what to do now. It makes noise when I start it, when I'm driving when I'm shutting it off. I'm embarrassed by my new CHEVY. I think I need to purchase some old piece of sh*t, so I can have a dependable vehicle to get me to work.

Had intermitten issues for a couple years, everytime I took it in they would say it worked fine. Finally a year ago I insisted and was told it needed to be replaced. I couldn't afford to fix it.

Equinox LS 4

The fan control for the ac / heat is intermittent. Sometimes it will be just fine then it will start and stop the fan and sometimes the fan stops completely. I Have replaced the resistor but the problem persists.
