I take my 6yr to school when we got shocked, I thought it was my clothes, but my child got shocked also, then pick her up from school took her to the doctor for her foot, I merged out to the main road and the SUV cut off no warning lights of any kind I got it back started after three attempts then about a minute after that the radio cut off , I made it back home and called the dealer they told me to call roadside, I spoke to them , I had my husband to follow me to the dealership, I dropped it of ,they called me and told me it ready for pick up, and told me they could not replicate it ,
I reported earlier in regards to the turbo going out in cold weather. The turbo was fixed finally (happened before Thanksgiving) on 1/13/22 by the dealer. RMPs are running high (65 MPH - RMPs are 2300) and it isnt shifting properly. wont shift to the next gear.
The contact stated he was driving a rented 2021 Chevrolet Equinox. The contact stated while driving 20 mph and crossing an intersection when another vehicle t-bone crashed into his front driver's side door. The crash caused him to collide with a third vehicle. No air bags were deployed in his vehicle. The contact sustained multiple injuries and a type 3 AC joint separation on his left shoulder. The contact did seek medical attention at an Emergency Room. The contact also stated the driver in the third vehicle did sustain unknown injuries and was unaware if they seek medication attention for their injuries. A police report was filed. The vehicle was not drivable. The vehicle was towed to towing lot. The vehicle was not diagnosed or repaired. A dealer was not contacted. The manufacturer had not been informed of the failure. The failure mileage was unknown.
It was a dark cold (minus 18) morning driving to work. All of the sudden a warning came on. The engine power is reduced mode came on and I went from highway speed to 30 mph instantly. I barely got home. I was terrified and the car would hardly go. Very dangerous. After much research because no dealer could get us in ( three week wait) we figured out what was causing it. Code P0234 turbocharge overboost. The dealer said I was safe to drive it. Still reduced power. After one week it warmed up to 17 degrees and the check engine light came off. I still have reduced engine power. New turbocharge feature for the 1.5 lt equinox. This should have been tested in cold climates. We regularly have 20 below temps and it’s a brand name car. I see a recall coming.
When making a sharp turn left or right from a standstill the vehicles makes an audible grinding noise and vibration in the steering wheel. Feels like you're driving over rumble strips. Vehicle was taken to dealer on 7/28/21 and problem was recreated by technician on test drive. Cause of issue was determined to be the electric duel pinion rack and pinion steering gear. This part was replaced under warranty. On 9/30/21 the exact same issue with the same symptoms started happening again. Dealer was contacted and appointment was made for 10/4/21. I feel that my safety and the safety of others are at risk due to if the steering system fails completely I would not be able to control the vehicle.
I feel the transmission is defective on this car. There are only 800+ miles on the car. In the morning I pulled the car out of the garage and the car did not feel smooth. I said that seemed awfully odd. I drove the car but nothing else happened. In the evening I parked the car in a parking lot up against a curb and a fence. I turned the engine off and placed it in park and I am positive about that. All of a sudden the car lurched forward jumped the curb knocked the fence down and stopped against a tree. Needless to say I was traumatized.
TL* THE CONTACT OWNS A 2021 CHEVROLET EQUINOX. THE CONTACT STATED WHILE DRIVING VARIOUS SPEEDS, THE INTELLIBEAM HEADLIGHT FEATURE CAUSED THE HIGH BEAMS TO ENGAGE AUTOMATICALLY. THE CONTACT STATED NO WARNING LIGHT WAS ILLUMINATED. THE VEHICLE WAS TAKEN TO BONIFACE HIERS CHEVROLET (800 S HARBOR CITY BLVD, MELBOURNE, FL 32901) WHERE THE MECHANIC DISABLED THE INTELLIBEAM FEATURE IN THE VEHICLE. HOWEVER, THE ISSUE RECURRED. THE MANUFACTURER HAD NOT BEEN INFORMED OF THE FAILURE. THE FAILURE MILEAGE WAS APPROXIMATELY 3,000.
WE BOUGHT A NEW CHEVY EQUINOX. ONE DAY LATER, WHILE I WAS DRIVING 70 MPH IN THE CENTER LANE ON I-75, MY WIFE ENGAGED THE ELECTRIC PARKING BRAKE THINKING IT WAS A CONSOLE LATCH. THE VEHICLE VIOLENTLY SWERVED TO THE RIGHT, AND ONLY BECAUSE I HAD BOTH HANDS ON THE WHEEL, DID WE AVOID A ROLL OVER. STILL WE ENDED UP PARTLY IN THE RIGHT-HAND LANE. THANKFULLY, THERE WERE NO VEHICLES BESIDE US AT THE TIME. ADRENALINE SHOT THROUGH BOTH OF US AS WE REALIZED THAT ANY VEHICLE IN THE LANE NEXT TO US COULD HAVE HIT US OR WE HIT THEM AND SERIOUS INJURIES OR DEATH COULD HAVE OCCURRED. WE FIRMLY BELIEVE THAT HAVING THE EMERGENCE PARKING BRAKE CONTROL IN THE CENTER CONSOLE NEXT TO THE CUP HOLDERS AND IN A SPACE WHERE OTHER THINGS MIGHT BE STORED, IS A HAZARD. ONLINE WE FOUND SEVERAL SIMILAR INSTANCES WHERE SOMEONE DID THIS SAME THING EITHER ACCIDENTALLY OR EVEN ON PURPOSE. THIS CONTROL DOES NOT BELONG IN A SPACE WHERE SOMEONE OTHER THAN THE DRIVER COULD ACCIDENTALLY ENABLE IT. CURIOSITY OR SIMPLE IGNORANCE COULD COST A LIFE. CHEVY MADE IT EASY WITH THIS HAZARDOUS DESIGN! RICK HENDRICK CHEVROLET IN NAPLES, FL WOULD NOT LET US CANCEL THE PURCHASE; THEY SAID WE "TOOK DELIVERY EVEN THOUGHT THE SALEMAN CALLED BECAUSE WE HAD NOT SIGNED THE TITLE PAPERWORK IN THE CORRECT PLACE. I SHOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF THEY WOULD HAVE TO TAKE IT BACK SINCE WE NEVER COMPLETED THAT PARTICULAR PIECE OF PAPERWORK. ANY CHANCE YOU COULD TELL ME IF WE CAN OR CAN'T MAKE THEM RETURN OUR TRADE-IN AND CANCEL THE PURCHASE OF THIS CAR THAT "BUY" ANOTHER OLDER, USED MODEL THAT DOESN'T HAVE THAT EQUINOX FEATURE. WE ARE LEARY NOW. HELP!
WE JUST PURCHASED/LEASED THE AFOREMENTIONED 2021 CHEVROLET EQUINOX IN DECEMBER OF 2020. ABOUT A FEW WEEKS AGO, THE CAR STARTING SWAYING TOWARDS THE LEFT. VERY DANGEROUS. ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE ON THE FREEWAY. **ALSO THERE IS A TECH SCREEN ISSUE. THE DASH SHOWS A CAR THAT WILL FLASH GREEN TO WARN YOU WHEN A CAR IS AHEAD, BUT IT IS FLASHING GREEN WHEN NOTHING IS AHEAD OR NO WHERE NEAR US. CONCERN THAT THIS COULD BE ELECTRICAL OR A FUSE. THANK YOU. AND BE BLESSED. PASTOR [XXX] C/O OF [XXX] INFORMATION REDACTED PURSUANT TO THE FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6). *TR
