Interesting story Chuzz. Glad you got it fixed. It's strange how one thing leads to another. We actually test drove a 2010 Equinox before settling on the RAV. I have always been suspicious of GM products after hearing of so many expensive repairs from co-workers. But then again, GM vehicles are very popular here, so the repair stories that caused me to form my opinion my be biased just because so many people buy GM here.
