2011 Chevy Equinox

Asked by Jul 03, 2019 at 04:12 AM about the 2011 Chevrolet Equinox 1LT AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I purchased a 2011 Chevy Equinox last November,
and it's been one problem after another.. This car
and it's issues and repairs has caused me so much
grief. I just recently had the dealership (car lot) that
I got it off of replace the engine... That was a
month ago... Before that, the timing change was
replaced.. Along with the camshaft sensor, not to
mention the fact that this car burns through oil like
no other... Now for the past couple of days I can't
even use my air conditioner in the car because it's
making it stall out here and there... It only likes to
do it at a stop sign, or when I am at a light and put
my foot on the gas to go, and it acts like it doesn't
want to go.... It doesn't like the air.... This car is
nothing but crap and nothing but problems and I
regret even purchasing the piece of crap... Now I'm
stuck with it I suppose because it's not fully paid
off yet.... Don't know whether or not to continue
dealing with it, or try to give it back to them and
start over.... Never again will I purchase a Chevy...
So not worth it!!!

One problem is independent used car lots: they sell auction cars for a profit and customers usually suffer. Rely on used car lots associated with new car dealers or deal with private owners directly, and always have any car you plan to buy checked out by a mechanic first. If you just give the car to the finance company, they can sue you for any loss they incur. And they will add exorbitant processing fees to it. If you owe say $2,000 more than the car's worth, your problem will eventually be more like $5,000. These are not nice people.
