2018 Chevrolet Equinox Owner Comments

problem #3

Sep 162017

Equinox LS 1.5L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 20,000 miles


There is a "dirty sock" smell coming out of our vents or defroster when you first start the car it will go away in 10 minutes or so, I changed the cabin filter after owning the vehicle about 6 months (it was a new vehicle). But that did not help.

May 202017

Equinox LT 4

  • Automatic transmission
  • 1,000 miles

Bought Equinox May 2017 new was a 2018 just came out. There was smell coming from air conditioner. The dealer told me it was my mats in the car. I took them out. Smell still their. It will take your breath. Have to let down windows. The air went out 3 months after I got the car. Had to replace the part in the air conditioner. It took them 6 weeks to fix it. I had a loaner car. The smell went away, but now it is back 1 year and 5 months later. It is stronger now. I will start coughing when the air is on. It does it after I drive it for awhile and then stop for maybe 30 min, and when I start it back up. I will never buy another Equinox again. I have leased this junk. I am going to get rid of it as soon as I can never again will I own one of these lemons.
