Water Water Everywhere
By familydad on


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


I bought this car after left my previous job since it was my company car. 5000 miles later, I also had the 1st cylinder misfire which was a costly repair. This car has a design and/or engineering flaw because everytime it rains, the spare tire compartment fills with water. Once it gets too full or you have to brake hard, the water sloshed forward and continues to soak the back and front seat floors. I contacted Chevy and they are not initiating a recall for this known problem. Chevy is not reimbursing to get this leak fixed because they have no idea where all the water is coming from... It is very frustrating to have to empy the rear storage to use a vacuum everytime it rains...

Best Features

Interior space. Ideal for family on the go.

Worst Features

Start the recall process for a known problem and admit there is a design flaw. By doing so would show your costumer and consumer base you are trying to take a responsible action. Until, this is corrected by Chevy, I will not consider line of cars in the future.
