Transmission problem
By wrdallas on


2008 Chevrolet Equinox Sport 4dr SUV AWD (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


I bought my '08 Equinox Sport new from a Dealer. I loved it from the start. However, the small narrow space between the console and the seats is impossible to retrieve anything dropped down there. I keep a 2 ft. "grabbit" just for that reason behind my seat. Too narrow for a hand and the seat track is too close to the console wall to get in there. Now, my tranny blew and is being called an "Internal proble" something to do with the valve body. The trans has to be replaced at a cost of $3900! Ouch! Anybody else have the transmission problem?

Best Features

I love most everything about the car/truck with the above exceptions.

Worst Features

Close the gap between the seat and the console or at lease make it more accessible.
