The car's too new to have problems like a bad battery or alternator. Check the battery cables to see if they're loose. Better yet, go back to the dealer and have him check. No matter what it is, you have a warranty, and that's what the dealer got paid for. A couple more trips like this and you can claim "Lemon Law," and they can replace the car.

Just leased one have the same issue there going to disconnect the after market remote start then I'll drive it for a few days if it don't happen there going to put in a factory one ? Noticed when it happened the brake peddle felt stiff , the same thing happened after picking it up the second time told them they need to let it sit before trying it not just keep turning it on and off over and over I even told mechanic to take it home for a few days . He laughed my wife doesn't want it anymore.

Just purchased a 2020 equinox, had for 2 weeks now and having the same issue the brake pedal goes stiff and the vehicle just cranks will not turn over after the vehicle sat for a couple hours it finally turned over. If this is a known problem Chevy better come up with a fix quick. Otherwise they can take this vehicle and shove it were the sun don’t shine.

Just had my 2020 towed today. Just got it a month ago. Would barely turn over to start, car would shake and make noises before starting. Then within a minute of sitting in driveway car would shake and make noise then die on me. I pray I didnt get the lemon on the lot.
