2010 Chevrolet Equinox 4dr SUV

182-horsepower 2.4L I4 6-speed shiftable automatic FWD

32000 mi knock sensor replaced, still knocks

63000 mi Timing chain noisy. Fixed under warranty. Error knock sensor light came on. 
29140 mi An exhaust valve failed.. The dealer replaced under warranty 
34100 mi The plastic guide that keeps tension on the timing chain broke, so the vehicle was slipping out of time. 
13000 mi Faulty radiator thermostat 
7000 mi Replaced ignition switch. Problem caused service stabilitrak light to come on and cylinder misfire - car difficult to drive before problem 
11000 mi They had to clean out the key ignition because it would stick and not turn over at times to start the car. 
33000 mi High pressure fuel pump on engine and timing crank shaft replacement and repair. 
8000 mi Engine temp indicator did not work and dealer replaced thermostat, everything is fine after repair. 
3000 mi Had problems with transmission smoothness while decelerating (20-30MPH range). Chevrolet released a new transmission calibration at the end of September 2009 to correct this. Took vehicle to the dealer to have it flashed under warranty. 
72000 mi

US $200
Check engine light came on, diagnosed problem with cam solenoid. Not covered under power train warranty. Also has intermittent loud knocks when starting. They could not find code but there is still something wrong. Was told early build 2.4 
73000 mi Still making bad noises when starting. Very loud rattle. Selling car as we are sure the motor will fail soon. 
3000 mi The motor was not the issue. Once it had been replaced, the intermittent problem still existed, so they dumped and reloaded software into the control module (during the same dealer visit) and it has been functioning as intended ever since. 
29000 mi High Pressure Fuel Pump leaking fuel into crankcase; TSB exists so HPFP replaced under warranty & oil changed. 
49000 mi Rough idle and oil consumption (1 qt/1000 miles).
