Chevrolet Equinox Questions
The buttons on the inside of the car don't lock any of the doors, and I have to lock them all manually.
The passenger side window does not go up and sometimes it does not go down either. It doesn't make a noise or anything, nothing happens.
I have to hold it down with my hand when I turn left because it rarely stays, and when I turn in either direction it does not go back automatically.
Chevrolet Equinox Recalls
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.
Certain vehicles originally sold in, or currently registered in, the states of Arkansas, Arizona, California, Nevada, Oklahoma, or Texas are being recalled because the plastic supply or return port on the fuel pump module may crack, resulting in a fuel leak. Fuel leakage in the presence of an ignition source may result in a fire. Dealers will replace the fuel pump module to correct this concern. The General Motors recall number is 12190.
The tire pressure monitoring system is designed to illuminate the tire pressure warning light when the tire pressure in any one tire is 25% below the recommended cold tire pressure. On these vehicles, the light will not illuminate until the tire pressure is more than 25% below the recommend cold tire pressure. Underinflated tires can result in the tire overheating, which could lead to a blowout and a possible crash. Underinflated tires also affect tire wear, vehicle handling, and fuel economy. Dealers will update the Body Control Module software to correct this concern. The General Motors recall number is 11261.

We have over 11800, miles on our equinox. Service traction control lights keep coming on. What does this mean? We have had no problems with our car, we keep it serviced, oil change regulurly, etc.
I truly love my Equinox. It is roomy and rides smooth. The only complaint is I can't get the interior lights to come on when I open the doors. I did everything the manual said....no luck! However, they do come on if I push the interior reading lights. Any ideas???
I LOVE THE EQUINOX AND THE WAY IT HANDLE THE ROAD, BUT THE ONLY PROBLEM THAT I HAVE IS THAT WATER GETS INTO THE HEAD LIGHTS WHEN IT RAINS.
