Should I leave ECO on at all times?
Traction control yes. This feature is designed to prevent you from losing control in ALL driving conditions. Not just in bad weather. What is Eco? HTH. -Jim
ECO is another button on the console.
Just did some research on that ECO button. Apparently it changes how the transmission shifts. It will supposedly give you better gas mileage. The article I just read said about 1 more MPG. But it will also require you to really step on the gas pedal when merging into freeway traffic because of decreased acceleration. With that said, if it were me, I'd leave it off. HTH. -Jim
You're welcome & thank you for the best answer vote.
When should you use your eco button. On the highway or while you are driving in town.
Why does my 2010 equinox chug when I have the ECO on
My 2011 Equinox normally runs fine with ECO on. Today it is 10 degrees outside and it stalled at intersections about 20 seconds after I came to a stop. Then when I restarted it it chugged as I was accelerating. I turned ECO off and it ran normal. So I'm assuming, when in ECO the computer program sets the idle RPM too low for that temp.
Is the echo button for snowy weather
For my 2015 Ekinox, I drove for 3 years with ECO off all the times. Mine is a 2.4 Litre L4 and gas consumption was very good for me anyway. I left the traction control ON all the times. If anyone can suggest a better use of ECO and Traction control, please inform.
My 2012 Equinox has egg smell. I use Shell regular what else could be the problem?
I just bought an 2010 Equinox, when I turn on "Eco Mode" I get a Check Engine Light, Traction Control Light and the Dashboard gauges start freaking out and rev goes up and down... Any ideas ? (this just happens when I turn on Eco mode)
Many of us agreed that use the "Eco off" mode all the time. Mine is a 2.4 Litre L4.
