2014 Chevrolet Equinox Owner Comments

problem #4

May 192016


  • 62,000 miles


May 2016, had issue with my 2014 Equinox involving the accelerometer pedal & sensor due to faulty wiring. My vehicle was just less than 2 years old with 62K miles at the time. We were driving down the highway, when the malfunction occurred and sent the vehicle into reduced engine power mode. When this happened the vehicle started to quickly lose speed down as it happened just prior to going up a hill. Had to try and get vehicle off to shoulder of highway, acceleration pedal was completely inoperable during this time. Call was placed to GM regarding this issue and my concerns that it could have lead to a crash, injury or worse. GM had no interest in covering this problem under any warranty and did not seem concerned at all with the issue or my concerns that the problem could have lead to a crash, injury or worse. In the end I was left with a $475 repair charge to replace an $80 part by the GM dealership.

On 275 in tampa going 75 mph suddenly the dash reads loss of power as you feel the car drastically slow to a crawl, me shouting to my stunned husband "pull over pull over" thank god we were in the left lane as that's where the breakdown lane was. We pulled over the car coasted and died. We barely missed getting rear ended by a semi. After two days the repair was done and stated as "ECM shorted" found ECM shorted internally off pin 73 1 shorted out under hood fuse block..this is a 2014 Chevy Equinox with17K miles.

When turning the steering wheel left or right at low speed or stopped, groaning or rubbing noise is emitted from front tires. Car is 1 month old, has approx. 5000 miles on it now and problem still continues after 2 attempts for dealer to repair it. During fill ups, the gas pump would click/stop and fuel would splash back out of tank and down side of car. This happened whether you set the automatic fill up switch on the fuel pump, or if manually filling the car myself. 2 complaints later, the whole gas tank had to be replaced. 2 days in a row, on 2 separate occasions, the smell of burning plastic and/or electrical wires has been noticed inside vehicle, and is more defined when outside of vehicle and smelling engine area.
