2010 Chevrolet Equinox Recalls

Ignition Key May Be Removed Without Transmission Lever Shifted To Park

The ignition key may be able to be removed from the ignition switch without having the transmission shift lever securely in the park position. This could allow the vehicle to roll unexpectedly. Dealers will inspect and if necessary replace the key cylinder lock housing free of charge to resolve the concern.

Front Seat Height Adjuster

The driver's and/or passenger's seat may suddenly drop to its lowest position because a bolt securing the height adjuster can fall out. This unexpected movement of the driver's seat could cause a distraction, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the height adjuster bolts in both front seats to correct this concern.

HVAC Defroster May Stop Working

The software in the center instrument panel module can cause several dash board functions, including the defrost operation of the HVAC system, to stop working. Under certain driving conditions, the loss of defroster operation could result in reduced visibility, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the center instrument panel computer module to correct this problem. This recall is scheduled to begin during January of 2010. The General Motors recall number is 09298.

I have not had a car rust this fast sin...
I have a 2010 Equinox and love the car except for one major flaw. At 45000 miles, I had trouble getting the key out of the ignition. Each week it would be more difficult until the key would not come out. This is complicated by the fact that the key is left in the accessory postion and drains the battery dead! After 650 dollars to "fix" six months ago, (new solenoid) it appears the problem h...
Bought 2010 Equinox new...(now has 36,600 miles) had no problems while it was under warranty with the exception of the tire monitoring system. Then, received a notice from Chevrolet about the software update required for the engine oil monitor. Took it in a little over a week ago. Since then the A/C does not cool and the shifter started sticking...in Drive and can only move to the Neutral po...
