Vehicle stopped unexpectedly no system warning and then check engine light came on. The mechanic says the steel shavings were going into head gasket from over oil comsuption.

A semi tire bounced and hit the front of my car and cracked my grill. My hazard lights popped on, my dome lights came on, and seatbelts locked up and car filled with smoke. It took all I had to unbuckle my seatbelt and it locked up. No one was in passengers side and that seat belt locked as well. Service airbag warning light came on and stays on and still the smell of airbags in the car. Now unable to buckle up, and cant reach the pedals because my seat wont move because the seatbelt is locked. On highway, in motion about 62 mph

The lights in the interior of my car go out intermittently. I have been driving down the highway going 70mph and without warning the car just died on me, I had to have someone push me off the highway because the car would not start. I waited about 10 mins and it started up again. The collision senor goes off when there is nothing around the car and boggs down the car while driving. I have taken it to 2 different shops and they can not get the problem to duplicate. They have had my car since before thanksgiving and gave it back to me the week of christimas. I drove it and had no problems until that Friday on my way home from work crossing over a busy intersection the collision alert started ringing and the senor is off and the car died in the middle of the road. I was able to get it started right away and get out of the intersection. I took it back to the shop and they still can't get the problem resolved. I say the GM obviously has electrical issues with their cars, because reading others complaints about the same issues. This is a major safety issue!

As I was driving the dash lights and the touch screen radio lights go out. This has happened on numerous occasions. Have talked with other Equinox owners and the have same problem. Dealer can not find any problems. Major concern is that all the lighting systems to include headlights will go out during night driving.
