I have had 4 rear end replacements in 4 years and the engine has been completely blown. This vehicle only has 66 thousand miles and is a piece of crap. I warn everyone who owns this model and year equinox to bring it in for service and check the awd rear end system I am sure you will find out like I have that the rear ends are faulty and they keep replacing them with used faulty rear ends. Who has an engine blown at 66,000 miles and there answer is to replace it with another used engine or for me to pay out of pocket for a new one. I urge everyone to make sure they are aware of their cars servicing.

I have 70,000 miles on my 2006 NOX and have had the rotors replaced 2 times in the last year and a half. Crazy!!! In those 2 years I also had a rattling sound coming from my steering column, but all the car docs associated it with the rotors. It is very bad now and embarassing when I am driving clients around and it sounds like the dash is going to fly off at any moment when I hit a bump or put the brakes on. I just took it in for another look and they called to say I need a new steering column! AND IT IS GOING TO COST $1100! Anyone else have this problem?
