Equinox 2006 Battery Issues

Calgary, Canada

#1 Aug 6, 2014
I just bought a 2006 Equinox from Kjiji. It has 110000 km. After two days I was unable to start the car. I thought its battery issue. I tried to boost the battery and it did not work. I called the roadside assistant and they were able to boost the car. But after driving an hour I parked the car and did not start. So I called AMA to replace the battery. They were unable to replace the battery as they were not able to unplug the battery. Then I took it to GM dealer and they are going to charge me $850 to change the battery cable and battery which is insane. I think this is a manufacturing defect but they won't accept it. I don't even know changing the cable and battery will solve this issue or not. I always heard GM make crap, now I believe. Does anyone have issues like that.
