My Chevy equinox 2013 dead in driveway!  
Dealership shrugged and yawned “lots of trouble
with these cars”.......still making payments on
it...dealership wants 5-6000$ to fix timing belt and
possible “past oil consumption-related problems “.  
Include me in any class action law suits.

I think the dealer has no interest in you. Take the car to an independent mechanic for a better diagnosis. Belt replacement shouldn't cost more than $500. If you do have oil consumption problems, like worn rings valve guides, a reputable mechanic can suggest options, like work on your engine or finding a decent replacement engine. That's probably over $2,000.
