CHEVY EQUINOX A LEMON

The 2006 chev equinox is OK if you garage it, but still has an overall problem with leaking in the drainage hoses and drains in general in moonroof which overflowed into interior lighting and shifting console shorting out lots of other things. Spent 3 months at dealers place waiting for drainage hoses. Was never repaired correctly and now sitting in driveway with mold through out the interior and will not start. A BIG LEMON THAT DEALERSHIP DID NOT FIX AND CHEVROLET DID NOT SOLVE. DON'T BY A CHEVY OR A FORD!!!
