POWER TRAIN

4/6/2015 - COLORADO SPRINGS, CO
MY 2010 EQUINOX WAS TAKEN IN TO MY MECHANIC TO CHECK MY OIL AS IT WAS BLACK AND SMELT BURNT AND THEY NOTICED THAT I WAS DOWN TO 1/2 QT IN LESS THAN 500 MILES...THE LAST OIL CHANGE THEY CHECKED THE ENTIRE VEHICLE BUT FOUND NO LEAKS AND SUGGESTED TO TAKE IT IN TO A CHEVY DEALER...I WAS UNDER THEIR POWER TRAIN WARRANTY AT THE TIME. OVER THE NEXT FEW MONTHS THEY REPLACED THE FUEL PUMP, FRONT SEAL, REAR SEAL AND NUMEROUS OIL CHANGES IN BETWEEN... RIGHT UP TILL THE LAST WEEK OF THE POWER TRAIN WARRANTY... I DROVE THE VEHICLE FOR ANOTHER 2000 MILES AND HAD TO ADD OIL UP TO 4 QUARTS EVERY 500 MILES...I TOOK IT IN ONCE AGAIN IN REGARDS TO THE OIL CONSUMPTION AND THEY PREFORMED THE OIL CONSUMPTION TEST WHICH THE VEHICLE FAILED MISERABLY. THE DEALERSHIP REPLACED THE PISTONS AND RINGS IN CONCERT WITH GM'S WARRANTY COVERING THE REPLACEMENT OF PISTONS AND RINGS IN REGARDS TO THIS PROBLEM. REMEMBER MY POWER-TRAIN WARRANTY WAS NOW OUT OF DATE DUE TO THE DEALERSHIP PUSHING THE REPAIR ALWAYS TO A LATER DATE. THIS WAS DONE IN 2/4/2015, IN LESS THAN TWO MONTHS THE OIL LEVEL HAS DROPPED TO 1.2 A QUART WITH ONLY 500 MILES PUT ON THE VEHICLE SINCE THE INSTALLATION OF NEW PISTONS AND RINGS. IT HAS NOW BEEN BROUGHT TO MY ATTENTION THAT ACCORDING TO BULLETIN PIP 5025,(05-16-2012) TWO ITEMS OF CONCERN ARE BROUGHT TO MIND...ONE THE VEHICLE OIL CONSUMPTION TEST FAILED ORIGINALLY, AND FROM ALL OTHER SOURCES BREAK IN PERIOD FOR PISTONS AND RINGS SHOULD TAKE NO MORE THAN 2000 MILES AT A LOSS OF 1 QT PER 1000 MILES. TWO...I LOST 4 QUARTS IN A 500 MILE DURATION. THE BULLETIN ALSO SUGGEST THAT ENGINES HAVING THIS PROBLEM WILL NOT BE REPLACED ONLY REPAIRS WILL BE COVERED AND THAT ZEBRA STRIPES ON THE CYLINDER WALLS ARE NOT COVERED ON THIS REPAIR BULLETIN... IT ALSO STATES THAT ZEBRA STRIPES CANNOT BE REPAIRED...IF NOT REPAIRED OIL CONSUMPTION WILL REMAIN POOR

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.
