The car ran great when new, now has 4500 miles on it and it starts to shake/missing when it lugs down in gear. Dealer said nothing was wrong so taking it to another dealer. This morning it made a grinding noise when I started it.
Put the Honda motor in it that the Saturn Vue had in it.
i found ur post on edmunds, i too have a 2011 chevy equinox with stalling issues. i have gotten no where with gm and the dealership i purchased it at. they have replaced multiple parts as part of a recall my vehicle does not have. i have started a facebook page trying to get some attention and am encouraging others with same problems to look and comment on there. These issues were having with a faulty vehcicle is somthing that needs to be addressed. i have contacted local newspapers, radio stations, everywereh trying to get word out there that they are not a safe vehicle. i just want to get word out there to try to help our cases and get them to buy back faulty equinox! i hope you could email back or add yourself to my page.
The stalling issue can be corrected by replacing the camshaft solenoids and a reprogram. There is a campaign or product enhancement. I took mine to Martin Chevrolet in Torrance - they were sharp enough to fix it the first time. Got the car back the same day too... so I believe it is an easy fix.
