Have 2019 Equinox with 2000 miles. Have just noticed a very annoying issue. At an rpm range of 1400 to 1700 and generally at speeds of 20 to 35 mph, car begins to stutter, lurch and buck. Only way I can describe it. If I push rpm up slightly it will stop doing this. Can even be brought on by slowing down from higher speeds for a turn and the engine drops down thru these rpm ranges. Took it in to dealer who was able to recreate the symptom/issue. However, I was given the generic response to what they can not fix .... "that's normal". Not acceptable. This is very annoying when residing in and commuting in an area with 25 to 30 mph limits. Please help me find out if anyone else is having this issue. It just doesn't seem normal to me. It's driving me nuts. Had 2017 Terrain prior and had zero problems. Thanks.
I am having the same issue with my 2019 Equinox 2.0 Diesel. I was also given the response of "That's normal" after over a week in the shop. There is absolutely nothing normal about it when the entire front end stutters and you feel it in the floorboard and steering wheel. My Equinox does this at random speeds from 30- 60 mph and RPMs roughly 1200- 1700.
It may be specific to the diesel engine. It's not an issue with the 2.0 gasoline engine. I've found the 9 speed transmission to be very smooth with no harsh shifting at all and no stuttering but again, with the gas engine. I have to wonder why they discontinued the diesel. If I didn't have to tow, I would have got that diesel for the MPG.
