Buy a better grade car like a Toyota, Honda or maybe a Ford.

Tranny went 2X on my FORD EXPEDITION, Power steering went 3X on my Ford Fusion. Airbag recall - can't get through to the service dealer to get it taken care of. Don't go Ford. I agree with insisting for a loaner vehicle.

similar issue (engine reduced power, check engine light) here on a 1 yr old 2019 Equinox, called the dealer, no "available" loaners to give out - waited a week but still no loaner "available". I am stuck with paying for a rental and no resolution because my dealer is "booked solid" and told me to go somewhere else if i dont like their answer. Never am i getting a Chevy again!!!!

I just bought a 2019 Chevy Equinox lt it has 45 000km on it and I just got the reduced power engine pop on and now my check engine light is also on but my vehicle runs normally!! I’m baffled!!!!


Same here, 2020 equinox. Dealer just replaced the oil sensor on mine today. We will see if it stays fixed this time. Only 2,700 miles on this car!! Twice at dealer for "reduced engine power"


2020 Equinox now 3,830 miles on this car and at the dealership to have the oil pump replaced. Really!!! Then Im told one day fix get back the next morning. Tomorrow rolling into DAY THREE!! No more GM products for me. Im thinking Toyotas and Hondas are looking pretty appealing at this point!
