Agreed. Still haven't gotten it in to get fixed. Scheduled to do it this Thursday. We never could get an appointment that worked with our schedule.

It make sense for the programming. At BMW when we change a battery or an electronic part, we have to program, by programming we mean register the new part to the main computer, and on the same time the system check if all the modules inside are up to date with the last version software. That is why sometimes we have to keep the car for 3 to 4 hours just to replace the battery.

Welcome to the electronic world !

Well, the stabilitrak problem that I originally started this thread about happened again last night. My wife was driving down the road at about 40mph and the Equinox just died. She coasted it to the side of the road. Luckily she was in a neighborhood, not on a highway. All the same lights came on as before. We had roadside assistance tow it (for the 3rd time in 9 months). Dealer checked it out today and said the transmission was "dead". They said it would be in the shop 2 to 3 weeks.

We have our first baby on the way and due in July. The last thing I want is for my wife and baby to be driving down a highway at 70mph and the Equinox do this again. So we went in to the dealer and worked a trade. The dealer and sales lady(whom our family has now bought 5 vehicles from in a year and a half) paid off what we still owed on the Equinox. So we started with a clean slate. We opted for more room than the Nox this time cuz of the baby and got a 2012 Traverse. It won't be ready until Monday, but it looks just like this:



We are very happy and excited about the new Traverse!

DISCLAIMER: This post is in no way about bashing the Equinox. We loved our Equinox and everything about it! But it had some very serious problems (all stemming from the defective transmission, I believe). It was a comfortable, sporty, and cool vehicle, but it had a 1 in ~1,000 problem. I'd love to own a Nox again, but a little extra room with a baby will be nice!

Hopefully you guys won't throw me off the forum now that I'm one of those "Traverse" dudes
