I have an 09 Equinox Sport 3.6VVT and timing chains went. It was repaired under warranty. Tech told me it was due to the cars oil change intervals were programmed too far apart. They said they lowered the intervals and should not have anymore problems. Just less than a year later they went again. Dealership would not stand by their work. I told them I should have gotten more than a year out of it. They agreed but, then turned around and said it was over mileage. What a joke. I got 4 years out of the original chains. 1 year out of the replacement. What is going on?
