My '19 Equinox is white. The gap around the rear of the RR door is...well, surprising. I noticed this before we even left the dealership and I notice it every time I walk up to the car.
I've posted here before about rattles.
The worst was the groaning when anyone was in the rear seat and pulling away from a stop or making a turn. I made an appointment saying the noise was from the "second seat" and that it could be reproduced by opening the rear door and pushing down on the seat cushion. Dealer had the car all day, never called; when I picked it up got a 'Could Not Duplicate' invoice discussing the right-front passenger seat. Sigh. "Second seat" to me meant 'second row'; dealer interpreted it as right-front passenger seat. Wish they'd have called me.
Made another appointment. They lubed hinges but also said they found many broken pieces of chinaware down there. Interesting as we never had any broken pieces on the seat; further, only had passengers about five times in the rear seat and probably three were me and the remainder our daughter and her husband. Dealer left the largest piece they found in the cupholder. It was a color and pattern we had never seen before. Had to have happened on the line (Ingersoll) or somehow in the dealer trade (dealer's name on the sticker is not where we bought it).
Anyway, the seat groaning is now fixed but ride in the back seat, pull away from a stop, and you hear a very noticeable plasticky vibration sound. Nothing in the back of the vehicle. In fact, over a bump, the tailgate makes other noises but this buzzy vibration sound bugs me. Back to the dealer.
This, and the road noise, are very disappointing. I have bought 15 new Chevrolets and in 2017 bought three pre-owned 2015 Chevrolets from two Chevrolet dealers. This Equinox is the noisiest Chevy I've ever owned. They're very popular; I assume they've been cranking them out as quickly as possible.
Anybody here ride in the BACK SEAT of their Equinox and hear the buzzes and other noises that seem to generate around the tailgate? Thanks.
