2012 Equinox - just ok
By s_l_w on
2012 Chevrolet Equinox LT 4dr SUV w/1LT (2.4L 4cyl 6A)
We love the way the Equinox looks, but looks can be deceiving. Our 2012 Equinox has been in the shop way too often for a fairly new car. The main issues we've had are (1) the hub bearings had to be replaced, (2) the Check Engine light came on due to a faulty gas cap, and (3) the transmission jerks at low speeds. Replacing the hub bearings fixed the issue of the popping noise when turning the steering wheel at low speeds. Replacing the gas cap did not fix the problem, so the dealer just replaced a faulty valve in the fuel system. We still haven't gotten a solution for the jerking transmission and the dealer says they didn't find anything wrong with it. These repairs are such an inconvenience!
Lots of room inside the cabin and in the rear storage area, decent gas mileage, exterior looks nice
More power, remove red stitching on seats, add ventilation to the back seats, add dual zone climate control to the front seats
