Warranty Issues - What Problems you have

I have not seen many people have too many issues with the new Equinoxs. Anyone have any prolems with their Nox's? All I had was a paint defect so far and just hit 1000 miles. The Saturn forum used to have numerous posts on people having issues

Had the passenger side rear window regulator replaced because it was binding. Other than that it's been awesome!

Re: Warranty Issues - What Problems you have

I’ve had a couple of problems, nothing that I would consider a show stopper. It’s a little annoying, but the Nox is a great vehicle.

Here are the issues that I’ve had fixed under warranty.
  • Replaced driver side seat belt buckle receiver, would not register belt being fastened.
  • Had the ECU and transmission module flashed to correct problems with aggressive deceleration when coasting.
  • Replaced HVAC/center stack controls due to recall.
  • Had EVAP service campaign applied (no noticeable problem).
  • Had navigation system software updated per service campaign (no noticeable problem).
  • Power rear lift gate stopped working. Replaced object detection sensors, corrected problem.

FYI, my Nox has the RPO code “UYS - IDENTIFIER FOR EARLY BUILDS” . The build date is 5/28/09. Don’t know if my problems are related to being an early build.

Front driver tweeter has been crackling since I bought it new, needs replacement. Windshield was never seated properly, at the perfect air speed and temperature it likes to whistle. I have yet to get them looked at, but its all warranty work.

Re: Warranty Issues - What Problems you have

mine left me stranded after 92 miles and 2 days.

dealer had to tow it and replace the body control module and engine control module along with one key fob.

now the only thing is the power steering squeel that all v6's have

Re: Warranty Issues - What Problems you have

Only problem we've had was not really a defect, but more of a dealership defect...

We took our 'Nox in for an oil change and I asked about the alignment of the hood. The dealership said there was a suspension problem, but couldn't fix it until the 'Nox had a few thousand miles on it because GM thinks the shocks would "wear in" and the alignment problem might change. Well, it didn't. So we took it back in and the dealership did something to it, but this caused more issues. Bad issues. This happened more than once. It took 5 trips to the dealership for them to fix their own mistakes. I think they goofed up from the start and didn't fix the initial problem like they should have and kept causing more issues. Major issues.

Anyway, out 'Nox is perfect now, and I'll NOT be going back to that dealership for anything in the future.
