Customer Question
Hello, how are you ...

Hello, how are you

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the make/model/year of your car?

2006 equinox 101000 miles,

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Equinox yourself? What have you tried so far?

Well after having a front tire smoking and having the frozen caliper replaced. there was some metallic grinding noise still, so after new struts and serpentine belt plus other front end stuff done, turning right or left the noise was still present. so looking at it myself, below the engine area and above with a help from a friend, we can up with the bolts and base plate that are bolted to the frame off of both sides of the engine are severily rusted out, not the bolts just the frame the engine is clamped to, some people have said 1000$ a side to fix, others say turn the car in. have you heard of other incidents about this. that's why we're seeing if this is under recall. Please help. thank you for your time

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car?

101000

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No, blue book value is less than repairs, but no money for a new one, and with all the fix ups done recently the car still runs well,
