transmission and chiller blew in 3 months
By rugbymom on


2008 Chevrolet Equinox LTZ 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 5A)


we bought used with 42K on car and first "chiller" went, 2 weeks in shop then transmission totally blew out, 3 weeks in shop.
In both cases parts not available or stuck in Canada long delayed repairs.
Both under warranty but what else is going to go?
Don't buy the 2008, problems coming....will buy non American now, keep trying but reliability and repairs a repeat problem with American cars Chevy, GM in particular.

Best Features

drives nice when it's not in shop, good room and interior features

Worst Features

transmission shouldn't blow before 200K, standard on most cars these days but according to accounts online this is a most frequent issue; would like to know if rebuild works or not
