I purchased my Equinox in Dec, 2008. It had 56 miles on it. I loved it at first..until the problems started. Within a few days of purchase, the tire sensors began malfunctioning and have yet to read the pressure correctly. three weeks later, the power steering locked up. The dealership accused me of causing the problem by hooking up booster cables inproperly which I had not. The rear window washer quit working 6 months after purchase. The driver side window, lock, and the cd player simultaneously stopped working just after the warranty ended. The head lights are nearly impossible to change yourself. I found a cheap mechanic for that. The dealership asked over 200.00 to replace the head lights since "The bumper has to be dropped to change them." My mechanic hasn't had to drop the bumper, but has had to replace both head lights 9 times in 5 years. It has now began misfiring after speed reaches 50 mph. I changed the spark plugs/wires, also very hard to do yourself, but the misfiring persists and is getting worse. I continue to read that other owners are having the same issues. I cant understand why there has not been a recall for some of the problems.Report it
