Hi guys new to the forum here but have been reading alot of posts. We have had are 2011 Equinox now for about 5 months now and 7,000 miles. Since then the gas mileage is not what I have expected. I have been dealing with my representative from Chevy for about a month now with no sucess. So far the car has recieved the first oil change, tire rotation, recall work for ticking noise on the fuel line when starting up, recall work for ecu reprogramming and camshaft actuators. I had the awful startup noise but that seems to have gone away since the recall work. As of now we drive our car mixed highway and city and are averaging 20.2 mpg. Chevy says that is an acceptable number and they cannot do anything about it. They offered a years worth of maintenance for the trouble I have been having but that was only after I asked for some compensation. When I purchased the vehicle the salesman said we could get 600 miles on a tank of gas. Now I obviously know that was a little far fetched but it is dissapointing when you get only barely close to 400 miles if i run it bone dry 19.5 gallons. The fuel gauge seems to move so quickly and I am trying to explain to them that there has to be something wrong but they say no. Dealer refused to do anything, I had to initiate the complaint myself with GM. I understand that my highway trips are not that long but my street driving is also around 45-50mph and the mileage is terrible. I personally think that this motor is underpowered for the size of the vehicle and the car just feels lousy. I am going to continue to complain about it. I have always had Honda vehicles and I am regretting not buying the CR-V that I originally was going to. I got sold on the nice features and price of the Chevy. I mean they should adleast try to correct the problem by swapping ecu or something but they say since there are no diagnostic codes everything is ok. I told my GM rep that there are a ton of complaints online about this. He was very rude and said "ya and everything you read on the internet is true". I am very dissapointed and will never buy a Chevy again.
