The Easy Way to Claim Your Chevy Equinox Recalls Repair
The Chevy Equinox is one of the most popular crossover sport utility vehicles on the American market. However, GM has recalled the Chevy Equinox 18 times since 2009, for issues ranging from faulty brake lubricant to improperly tempered window glass. This averages to a little more than one recall per year since Equinox first hit the roads in 2004. How can you tell whether your Chevy Equinox has been recalled, and what can you do to schedule a repair appointment if you qualify for one? DoNotPay is here to make the process of claiming your repair as easy as possible.
How Do I Make a Claim for My Chevy Equinox Recall?
If you've received a notification, you likely have questions about how to claim your free repair. Here are the steps to get through to Chevy's recall information center.
- Get all your car's information together. This includes the make, model, and year, as well as the Vehicle Identification Number and anything else you think will be relevant.
- Contact your local certified Chevy dealer. If you are unable to get through to them or you have other questions, you can contact Chevy's recall assistance center at 1 (800) 222-1020, between 8 AM and 9 PM Eastern time, Monday through Saturday.
- Tell them what has happened with your car and that you're interested in claiming a recall repair.
Some Chevy dealerships allow you to book repair appointments completely online. Others don't offer this service, and you may face long hold times as you get your repair arranged.
What Happened With the Chevy Equinox Recall?
As of 2021, the most recent Chevy Equinox recall is for 2021 and 2022 Chevy Equinoxes that are equipped with certain Hankook tires. These tires were manufactured without enough curative agent, potentially causing the tread to separate while driving. If you drive a 2021 or 2022 Chevy Equinox, first check to see if your tires were manufactured by Hankook. If they were, check Chevy's Owner Center to enter your VIN and see if you're eligible for a free repair. There's also an active recall for 2021 Chevy Equinox seatbelts that may have been secured with incorrect bolts. If you drive a 2021 Chevy Equinox, you should also check to see if it's been recalled.
Who is Eligible for the Chevy Equinox Recall?
If your Chevy Equinox has been recalled, you should have gotten a communication from General Motors with the details of the recall as well as the contact information of your nearest Chevrolet dealership. However, not everybody gets these communications. They often end up lost in the mail, or trapped in a "Spam" folder.
To see whether your Chevy Equinox has been recalled, visit the Chevrolet Owner Center and input the Vehicle Identification Number. This is the fastest way to find out whether a specific car has been subjected to a recall.
How Long Do I Have to Get My Recalled Chevy Equinox Repaired?
There's no time limit on getting your Chevy Equinox repaired once it's recalled. However, for your safety and the safety of everyone else on the road, it's critical to get recall repairs done as soon as possible.
