POWER TRAIN

5/1/2016 - APPLETON, WI
I HAVE A 2010 CHEVY EQUINOX AND IN LATE MARCH WHILE DRIVING OUR YOUNG CHILDREN; OUR TRANSMISSION BLEW UP. WHEN I SAY BLEW UP, I MEAN IT LITERALLY EXPLODED AND MY HUSBAND STARTED TO LOSE CONTROL OF THE VEHICLE. WE WERE STRANDED AND HAD TO GET IT TOWED. WHEN WE BROUGHT IT INTO THE MECHANIC HE SAID HE WOULD DO WHAT HE COULD TO TRY TO "RE-BUILD" IT AND PERHAPS SAVE US SOME MONEY. ONCE HE OPENED THE HOOD; HE SAID HE COULD NOT BELIEVE HIS EYES AND SAID IT WAS NOT POSSIBLE TO SALVAGE ANYTHING ABOUT THIS TRANSMISSION AND WE PD.$4,000 TO GET THIS PART REPAIRED. HE MENTIONED HE HAD NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE IT IN 30 YEARS. WHEN I WENT ONLINE I SAW SEVERAL DIFFERENT PEOPLE WITH THE SAME ISSUE FOR THE SAME MAKE AND MODEL TRANSMISSION. THEY, AND MYSELF HAVE SENT CONCERNED LETTERS TO GM, HOWEVER; GM WILL NOT HOLD ANY ACCOUNTABILITY FOR THIS ISSUE ALTHOUGH IT HAS HAPPENED TO SO MANY. I WOULD HOPE THE LARGE AMOUNT OF ONLINE REMARKS ARE ENOUGH SAFETY CONCERN TO WORK ON OPENING AN OFFICIAL INVESTIGATION TO GET A RECALL ON THIS. MY TRUCK CAN BE REPLACED; MY CHILDREN CANNOT. I DO NOT BELIEVE GM HAS ACTED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE NATIONAL TRAFFIC AND MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY ACT BY INITIATING A SAFETY RECALL. I FEEL AN OBLIGATION TO REACH OUT TO TRY TO HELP OTHERS WITH THE SAME SITUATION TO TRY TO PREVENT DANGEROUS ACCIDENTS AND SAVE LIVES THAT COULD BE TAKEN AS A RESULT TO THIS FAULTY TRANSMISSION EXPLOSION.

ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

4/13/2016 - LOUISVILLE, KY
THE RADIO WILL NOT TURN ON WHEN I START THE VEHICLE. IT IS NOT UNTIL 10 MINUTES LATER THAT THE RADIO WILL FINALLY TURN ON AND WORK PROPERLY. THIS ALSO EFFECTS THE TURN SIGNALS AND HAZARD LIGHTS. I FEEL THAT WITH THE FACT THE TURN SIGNALS DO NOT WORK THIS IS A SAFETY HAZARD AND A RECALL NEEDS TO BE ISSUED TO FIX THIS PROBLEM. THIS STARTED IN MY DRIVEWAY.
