We have had our 2007 Equinox since 12/06. We live in Florida and have been in a drought all year. The tropical storm this weekend was the first real rain (and there was not much wind) we have had has since got the car. I looked in the trunk this afternoon to check on the spare and there was a good 6 inches of standing water. We will be taking the car to the dealer tomorrow. Looks like this is not an un-common occurence.
I will re-post with what the dealer says.

I had a similar problem about 2 weeks ago. The "Service Stabilitrak" light kept coming on; after a while, it would go off; then next time I started the car, it would come on again. I had also noticed prior to that that if I were on a hwy for example going at a good clip and had to suddenly hit the brake the car "shimmied" a bit, so I took it in to the dealer. They said there was nothing wrong (of course) when they tested it- I asked them to take the car on the hwy for a test drive- as soon as they started accelerating the Service Stabilitrak light came back on....it was $400 + to fix it, but I have the GM Protection Plan so only paid $100 deductible. They also noticed the shimmying I had told them about (not sure if the two were related?) and found that I needed new rotors on the front brakes. Hope this helps a bit. Good luck

I've been really loving my 2007 Equinox (46,000 miles) until the other day. We just bought it used two months ago - gorgeous condition in and out, low miles, no leaks, no dampness, no smells (and we live in one of the rainiest cities in the world, Vancouver). It's the perfect little SUV to get me and my small kids around the burbs safely (or so I thought).

Then the other day I was cruising uphill till at about 2000rpm the car lurched back, I lost all ability to accelerate, the fastest it would crawl was about 15mph, all the while the engine revved furiously on it's own trying to figure things out. Engine light came on as well as the Stabilitrak light and service message.

Took it down the the dealership and we're being quoted $868 + labor for a range switch module.

Oh, and shocker! Our warranty has expired (by time, not miles) three weeks ago. Bummer. Thanks a lot, Eagle Ridge GM. Won't be buying from them or another Chevy/GM vehicle ever again, nor will I recommend them to anyone. Actually, I will be slamming this dealership and Chevy to anyone I come across looking for a new car.

I drove a used Honda for 5 years without a single major issue other than an alternator and basic maintenance. Back to Honda the next time around. Till then I see this relationship with Chevy being a long, expensive and brutal.

I just purchased a 2007 Equinox 4 days ago and while going thru the car wash i noticed my engine light came on. I went to the dealership to let them know. I heard sometimes if you do not seal tight your lid after putting gas in the vehicle you will see the engine light come on. The nice man says to try and drive my vehicle for 40 miles it should turn off. It hasn't and i'm going to check any recalls on this vehicle. Love the car hope this is not the begingin of a night mare....

Here we are, back again, after fixing the leak and my daughter's constant illness, now we have a 400 dollar bill for engine light and stabilitrak lights being on and off. Some emissions switch issue....seriously????? I have a Lexus with 100,000 miles on it and nothing's ever been wrong, same year as this vehicle....NEVER again. Would not recommend this Suv to anyone, very disappointed.

My ignition key is giving me problems as well. I am about to trade my 2007 Equinox. I'm sure I will be "upside down" on the payment since it has almost 100,000 miles. The EGR valve needs replacing now too. That seems to be a common problem with Equinox too. Stabilitrak Service light came on a couple of weeks ago but I have not seen it again and don't want to. Dealership told me that the EGR valve is not covered under GM warranty nor the extented warranty I purchased, which by the way, was a waste of money. It has not covered anything. Strangely, the leaking into the tire well has stopped. Not sure if it is because we haven't had torrential rains or what. I just hope it will stay away until I get this thing traded off.

i have read your comments about the equinox and believe it or not, im surprised. i got one for my daughter in 07 and the only things ive had to do until this week was, replace a set of tires at 81,000 and now the egr valve and a set of plugs. other than that its been a great car with no issues what so ever. now its near 100k and this is all i've had to deal with. i hope the next car she picks does as well.(her new 04 mercedes benz was a huge P.O.S.) IM LOOKING FORWARD TO ANOTHER CHEVY FOR HER SINCE THIS ONE HAS DONE HER PROUD. im sorry it was not as good to you as it was to her.

I also had a water leak in the hatch area, I took the rear hatch area all apart it was the antenna. I resealed it and it never leak again. Looks like maybe taking the car though a car wash may have loosen/bent it.

I want to advise everyone that I bought a 2007 chevy equinox and Ive had it for 9 months and I noticed after 3 months that I was getting water coming into the rear tire well every time it rained. I took it to the dealer 4 times and they could not find the problem. Upset about the matter I took my equinox to Billys Detailing and some how he found the problem because I dont get no more water in the tire well compartment. Why is it that the dealer can not find this problem or is it because since it is in warrenty they dont care... just a concern costomer..
Where did Billy's Detailing find the problem & how did he fix it?

Spare tire compartment water. I drilled a 1/4 inch hole in the drain plugs bottom of compartment. Water in front passengers compartment. Took it to glass shop. The rubber under windsheild wipers was allowing the water to get into the car via the shift leaver cable. They resealed it.

Rear Passanger door leak. Been back to the dealership 4 times for same issue, they've replaced the door seal, the rubber etc. Last time, they told me they can't find the leak. Leaked again yesterday. I am soooo frustrated/annoyed.
This couldn't be from the tire well could it?
We found water on the floor carpet along the rear doors. When we took it to the dealer, they immediately went to the spare tire well. We had water (gallons) in our spare tire well. Service guys said it apparently splashed up onto the carpet on both sides of the rear seats when we made a sudden stop. Spoke with Chevy customer service rep. Said there was no problem with my vehicle but would not give any info about other complaints. Wonder how the service rep knew exactly where to look first?!?!?
