When I put in the fuel nozzle into my 2010 NOX, it does not allow the nozzle to lock and fill without having to hold it. I looked at the tube, and the opening is oval shaped, with a vertical orientation. It seems that the oval hole should be more horizontal. I have not looked at another NOX, so I am wondering if other holes are more vertical or horizontal.

Ours is definitely vertical. It stays in there pretty well when filling up but I cant put it all the way in or it will shut off the automatic shutoff prematurely due to the extra pressure.

I had that problem a couple of times in some gas stations but for the most part it works with no problems

My Terrain is oval and the oval is vertical. I also notice that the gas nozzle doesn't fit exactly like most cars I've owned, however, it does insert properly and stay in place OK.

I had the same problem with my nox and I took it to the dealer and they said nothing was wrong, but after I picked it up from them I can pump gas without holding it now. I think they did something, but i don't now why they would hide it.

I have the same problem filling my Nox. I posted about two months ago, and a couple of people said that they had problems, and their hole was vertical, like mine.
It seems like the hole should be horizontal. I have to hold the nozzle all the time here in Southern California, which is a little different than other parts of the country.
I am thinking that I will make something for the nozzle to sit on, since it falls down so far that it shuts off.

No problem with our Nox but depending on the pump it can take a while to get the last $1 to as much as $4 in.

This is an old post but referring to the same problem we are having.
When filling up with gas, the nozzle does not want to stay in place and just flops down unless you hold it.
The filler hole is oval and vertically orientated as mentioned in the OP.

Anyone else out there have this problem with their 2013 Equinox?

I have reported this to the dealer who said they would look into it and get to me if there is a TSB on this issue.

I somehow doubt there will be a TSB and I don't see too many other folks reporting the same issue.

We are in SOCal if that makes a difference.

I will try. However I think they are all the same. Our other cars have round holes in which to place the nozzle, the Equinox has an oval one so that the nozzle ends up having a lot of vertical play.

My "hole" is also vertical, but not lined up exactly vertical. I would say it points to about 11 O'Clock. I have never had any problem with filling it up.
