In 2010 inspite of all the talks around from people around me (family , friends,co-workers) about not buying GM car.. i saw something in the Equinox which made me think I should listen to my heart and buy it... I am fond of driving and surely equinox was a good car for the first 6 months i owned it, but as the mileage crept.. issues just started pouring in.. won't go in much detail but in 3.5 years i have owned the car.. I have had roughly 65000 miles (i do drive a lot of highway miles) and all my services were done by a GM Chevy dealer... but so far I have had to replace the fuel pump (twice), timing chain, the air conditioner compressor, the condensor and the actuator valves (fuel valve i guess) .. all under the(extended warranty) i have bought.. and today looks like my car is concuming OIL. (btw the oil monitoring sytem is reading 40 %)..s o no way in the world is that sensor reading a good number.. there was no check engine lite came on..... last service miles were at around 65K and i am around 69 K and I heard noises coming from the engine and a clear rattle and lack in performace. Take it to a dealer and they say.. might need to run a oil consumption test (nothing else seems to be wrong).. I am sure i have not seen the oil leak (i would have noticed that) but still they insist to run the test..lets see what happens..
I am here to see if there is anyone who can help voice my concern to the GM /Chevy team. This type of quality of the Engine is surely not expected after paying the price . It was my first GM car..(might be the last) looking at the issues i am finding.. they need to see the customer pain ino rder to understand the product they have delivered. Very disaapointed.. not sure what to do at this time..
Feels like they sold me a car with a PROT/Pilot engine... (so many issues ).... hopefully the car survives 100K miles.. at this rate.. of failures
