2010 Chevrolet Equinox RecallsFront 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.
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.

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.
