Buy a better grade car like a Toyota, Honda or maybe a Ford.

Tranny went 2X on my FORD EXPEDITION, Power steering went 3X on my Ford Fusion. Airbag recall - can't get through to the service dealer to get it taken care of. Don't go Ford. I agree with insisting for a loaner vehicle.

similar issue (engine reduced power, check engine light) here on a 1 yr old 2019 Equinox, called the dealer, no "available" loaners to give out - waited a week but still no loaner "available". I am stuck with paying for a rental and no resolution because my dealer is "booked solid" and told me to go somewhere else if i dont like their answer. Never am i getting a Chevy again!!!!

I just bought a 2019 Chevy Equinox lt it has 45 000km on it and I just got the reduced power engine pop on and now my check engine light is also on but my vehicle runs normally!! I’m baffled!!!!
