I’d call Chevy Customer Service at 1-800-222-1020, wait for all the Takata Air Bag BS to finish, and after the initial options go by, wait ... then in the 2nd round of options, choose option #4 (shopping for new vehicle). I actually tried to do it myself, but they’re closed right now. Try again Monday morning.
As for your Build Date, that’s an early 2012 build, however - I’ve seen vehicles sit on dealer lots for *two years* before their first sale. I almost just recently bought a 2017 Terrain, built March 2017, that was still sitting on the dealer lot at Christmas 2018 ... so going on *two years* old! Had I bought it, the warranty would’ve started December 2018.
Call that Chevy number above and act like you’re buying a new vehicle. They’ll tell you you’re mistaken ... that it’s a used vehicle, but then just ask them when it was “Put Into Service” - either by the dealer as a loaner, service vehicle, or demo, or by the first owner. You don’t want any personal information -and they’re not going to give you any - that’s not what you’re asking for. You just want the initial Put-Into-Service date. I *think* that’s the date they’ll use to determine whether you qualify for the SCA.
So we’re already in 2019 (July). I think you need this vehicle to have sat on a dealer lot from Nov 2011 to at least July 2012 to qualify.
And I would say, given that the Equinox was still new at that point, and possibly near the height of its appeal, this is unlikely.
But call Chevy and get that date first.
