Chevrolet Equinox: Poor Reliability
By goldilocks2 on


2010 Chevrolet Equinox LT2 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl 6A)


Purchased brand new 2010 Chevy Equinox LT2 in March 2010. I had no problems with the car until 47,000 miles and then began to experience same engine problems reported by many owners on the Edmunds.com 2010 Chevrolet Equinox forum discussion: Rough sounding engine, threatening to stall when driving less than 20 mph or when idling. Dealer service center replaced drivetrain under warranty and air conditioner compressor. At 62,000 miles, needed 2nd drive train, so new dealer service center replaced engine. Now engine appears to work, but windshield wiper transmission blew at 69,000 miles, and actuator in air/heat unit needs replaced. This car is poor quality, but good ride. It is a money pit.

I sold the car and purchased a Subaru Forester. Two years later with more than 57,000 miles I have had no problems. Let's hope GM has focused on fixing the problems of the Equinox. It could be a great car, if it weren't for the terrible quality.
