ENGINE

5/8/2015 - MINERAL WELLS, WV
WHILE DRIVING MY 2011 EQUINOX THE CAR SEEMS TO INTERMITTENTLY MISFIRE, CAUSING THE WHOLE CAR TO SHAKE. SOME DAYS THE CAR SEEMS TO RUN FINE, SOME DAYS IT RUNS BADLY. SOMETIMES THE ENGINE LIGHT COMES ON, SOMETIMES THE CHECK STABILITRAC LIGHT COMES ON. SOMETIMES THE CAR RUNS FINE AND NO LIGHT COMES ON. THE PROBLEM SEEMS TO BE GETTING WORSE AND HAPPENS MORE FREQUENTLY. IN THE LAST WEEK THE CAR HAS STARTED TO RUN FOR 3-5 SECONDS AFTER SHUTTING OFF THE IGNITION. IT ALSO HAS BEGUN TO RUN VERY ROUGH AND ALMOST STALL , BUT NOT EVERY TIME I DRIVE IT.

VISIBILITY/WIPER

5/6/2015 - EAST HAMPTON, CT
HEATER WAS NOT CHANGING MODES, THERE WAS NO ACTUATOR MOVEMENT, THEREFORE NO DEFROSTER DURING WINTER. THIS LEFT ME WITH POOR VISABILITY.

5/6/2015 - EAST HAMPTON, CT
I WAS DRIVING TO WORK ON ROUTE 66 IN EAST HAMPTON, CT WHEN THE CAR JUST STARTED HESITATING AND NOT DRIVING PROPERLY. I IMMEDIATELY HAD TO FIND A SAFE PLACE TO PULL OFF SO AS NOT TO CAUSE AN ACCIDENT AND CALLED ON-STAR. I TURNED THE CAR ON AND OFF SEVERAL TIMES BEFORE IT FINALLY SEEMED DRIVE-ABLE. ON-STAR PERFORMED A DIAGNOSTIC TEST AND SAID THERE WAS DEFINITELY SOMETHING WRONG AND TO PROCEED TO THE CLOSEST CHEVROLET DEALER IMMEDIATELY. IT WAS DETERMINED BY JACKSON CHEVROLET THEY HAD TO REPLACE THE THROTTLE BODY. I DON-++T UNDERSTAND HOW SOMETHING LIKE THAT CAN BREAK IN ONLY 4 YEARS OF OWNING THE CAR AND IT WAS A REAL SAFETY CONCERN.

VISIBILITY/WIPER

5/6/2015 - EAST HAMPTON, CT
I WAS DRIVING HOME FROM WORK IN A VERY BAD RAIN STORM ON ROUTE 9 IN NEWINGTON CT GOING SOUTHBOUND (PLEASE CHECK THE WEATHER FOR THAT DAY AROUND 5:10PM). THIS IS A HIGHWAY WHERE CARS WERE TRAVELING PROBABLY BETWEEN 50 û 60 MILES PER HOUR DURING RUSH HOUR TRAFFIC, WHEN THE WINDSHIELD WIPERS JUST STOPPED WORKING. I WAS DRIVING BLIND DOWN A MAJOR HIGHWAY IN POOR WEATHER CONDITIONS. I WAS LUCKY ENOUGH TO BARELY FIND THE BREAKDOWN LANE WHILE FALLING OFF THE ROAD PERIODICALLY AS I COULD NOT SEE WHERE THE ROADSIDE WAS. I SLOWLY WORKED MY WAY ON TO THE EXIT 29 RAMP SO I COULD SIT UNTIL HELP ARRIVED.

VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL

5/3/2015 - CALUMET CITY, IL
WHEN I WAS OUT RUNNING ERRANDS ON 5/2/15 WITH MY 5 YEAR OLD, AS I WAS ARRIVING CLOSER TO MY DESTINATION MY CAR STARTED SHAKING THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON, THE THE STABILITRAK LIGHT CAME ONE AND I STARTED TO ACCELERATE THE CAR AND THE PEDAL WAS ALL THE WAY TO THE FLOOR AND THE CAR HESITATED FOR A MIN OR SO THEN IT STARTED TO REV UP AND I WAS ABLE TO PULL OFF. THEN WHEN I GOT TO WHERE I WAS GOING I TURNED THE CAR OFF AND ACCORDING TO THE MANUAL THE STABILITRAK SHOULD GO OFF AND IT USUALLY ACTIVATES DUE TO CHECK ENGINE LIGHT COMING ON. I CAN HONESTLY SAY THAT WHEN YOU ARE IN TRAFFIC AT A STOP AND TRYING TO PULL OFF THIS IS A VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION. AFTER BEING IN THE STORE FOR AT LEAST 30MINS OR MORE WHEN I COME BACK OUT THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT IS STILL ON BUT THE STABILITRAK LIGHT IS OFF. I AM NO MORE THAN 20 MINS AWAY FROM MY HOME BUT ON THE WAY BACK HOME IT TOOK AT LEAST 45 MINS BECAUSE THREE TIMES WHILE IN TRAFFIC WAITING FOR THE LIGHT TO TURN GREEN THE CARD STARTED HAVING THE SOLDERED ACCELERATION PROBLEMS AGAIN. I AM JUST RELIEVED THAT THE DRIVERS BEHIND ME IN EACH OCCURRENCE WHICH WOULD BE A TOTAL OF 4 WAS VERY PATIENT. I DID DO A DIAGNOSTIC REPORT WITH ONSTAR AFTER THE SECOND INCIDENT AND I WAS INFORMED THAT THERE WERE 3 CODES ON MY CAR NOW AND THE LOSS OF POWER CAN BE AN ISSUE FOR THESE CODE AND TO GET THE CAR TO THE DEALER WITHIN 7 DAYS. THIS SEEMS TO BE AN ISSUE THAT HAS BEEN LISTED ON THIS SITE MORE THAN ONCE. I AM NO LONGER UNDER THE WARRANTY FOR THIS VEHICLE AND FROM WHAT I HAVE READ IS A VERY EXPENSIVE REPAIR. I AM NOT SURE WHY CHEVY/GM IS NOT ACKNOWLEDGING THIS ISSUE FROM WHAT I HAVE SEEN ON THIS SITE AND EDMUNDS.COM, CAR COMPLAINTS.COM AND YOU TUBE THIS A VERY REAL AND SERIOUS ISSUE. THIS ISSUE NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED SOON THAN LATER. I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY THERE HASN'T BEEN ANYTHING DONE ABOUT THIS. I AM SCARED TO DRIVE MY CAR NOW.
