SEVERAL MONTHS AGO WE TOOK OUR CAR IN FOR A $300 CHECK UP & COMPLAINED THAT WHEN WE STARTED IT UP IT SOUNDED LIKE THERE WAS NO OIL. DIDN'T FIND ANYTHING WRONG. JUST ABOUT 10DAYS AGO ANOTHER NOISE WAS HEARD. IT GOT WORSE. TOOK IT IN & THERE WAS NO OIL ON THE DIP STICK. WE JUST HAD THE OIL CHANGED ABOUT A MONTH OR SO AGO. OH YES AT THAT TIME IT KEPT LEAKING OIL WHEN PARKED. TOOK IT BACK 3 TIMES TO HAVE IT CORRECTED. NOW THEY HAVE SEALED EVERYTHING OFF & THEY WILL CHECK THE OIL IN 500 MILES. MAY NEED PISTONS & RINGS. THEY TELL ME THIS IS HAPPENING TO THE 2010 EQUINOX CARS. LOOK UP OUR RECORD. WE HAVE BEEN A NUMBER OF TIMES FOR OTHER THINGS. 1 PART 3 TIMES IN 9 MTHS. NOT HAPPY AT ALL.

FUEL/PROPULSION SYSTEM

3/4/2015 - FRONT ROYAL, VA
THERE IS A CURRENT RECALL IN PLACE FOR THE TIMING CHAIN AND FUEL PUMP IN THIS VEHICLE. BOTH ITEMS WERE REPLACED AT 30,00 MILE AND NOW 107,000 MILES LATER THE SAME PROBLEM IS OCCURING AND BOTH OF THESE ITEMS NEED TO BE REPLACED AGAIN AND INSTEAD OF GM RECOGNIZING THE RECALL THEY SAY THAT THEY CAN ONLY PROVIDE $300.00 TOWARDS THE REPAIR COST OF THE VEHICLE. GM SAYS WE HAVE EXCEED THE MILEAGE FOR THE REPAIRS TO BE DONE AT NO COST AND WANT TO CHARGE US $2200.00 FOR THE REPAIR OF THE VEHICLE. THE RECALL NUMBER FOR THIS IS (12313). THE POC AT JACK EVANS DEALERSHIP IN FRONT ROYAL VA IS LAUREN MILLER (540) 635-2153. THE ONLY ASSISTANCE THE DEALERSHIP WORKED OUT WITH GM TOWARDS THE REPAIR OF THE VEHICLE WAS $300.00. GM NEEDS TO RECOGNIZE THAT NOT EVERY SINGLE VEHICLE IS GOING TO BE THE SAME AND NOT ALL VEHICLES ARE GOING TO HAVE PROBLEMS AT EXACTLY THE SAME MILEAGE, IF THERE WAS A PROBLEM WITH THE PARTS IN THE VEHICLE AND YOU REPLACED THOSE PARTS WHEN THE VEHICLE ONLY HAD 30,000 MILES ON IT AND THE PROBLEM IS OCCURING AGAIN 107,000 MILES LATER THEN THERE IS OBVIOUSLY STILL A PROBLEM. THE RECALL WAS PUT IN PLACE FOR A REASON AND THEY NEED TO DO THE RIGHT THING AND HONOR THAT RECALL INSTEAD OF TRYING TO GIVE US REBATES AND DEALER INCENTIVES OF UP TO $3000.00 TO BE USED TOWARDS THE PURCHASE OF A BRAND NEW VEHICLE, WHICH IS WHAT THEY ARE TRYING TO DO AT THIS POINT IN TIME.

AIR COMPRESSOR- HAS GONE OUT AND THE CAUSE FOR IT WAS WHEN I HAD A RECALL FIXED. CHEVROLET HAS STATED THEY WILL NOT FIX THE ISSUE AND NOW AS A COLLEGE STUDENT I HAVE TO PAY $1000 TO HAVE IT FIXED. I EXPECTED A RELIABLE CAR AND AFTER MORE THAN 5 TIMES IN THE SHOP I REALLY WISH I WOULD HAVE STUCK WITH MY 2001 VEHICLE WHICH WAS MORE RELIABLE THAN WHAT THIS EQUINOX WILL EVER BE.
