Chevrolet Equinox Owners Manual: Certification/Tire Label

Label Example
Label Example

A vehicle-specific Certification/ Tire label is attached to the center pillar (B-pillar).

The label may show the size of the vehicle's original tires and the inflation pressures needed to obtain the gross weight capacity of the vehicle. The label shows the gross weight capacity of the vehicle. This is called the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR).

The GVWR includes the weight of the vehicle, all occupants, fuel, and cargo.

The Certification/Tire label may also show the maximum weights for the front and rear axles, called the Gross Axle Weight Rating (GAWR). To find out the actual loads on the front and rear axles, weigh the vehicle at a weigh station. Your dealer can help with this. Be sure to spread the load equally on both sides of the centerline.

Caution Overloading the vehicle may cause damage. Repairs would not be covered by the vehicle warranty. Do not overload the vehicle.

 

Warning Things inside the vehicle can strike and injure people in a sudden stop or turn, or in a crash.
  •  Put things in the cargo area of the vehicle. In the cargo area, put them as far forward as possible.

    Try to spread the weight evenly.

  •  Never stack heavier things, like suitcases, inside the vehicle so that some of them are above the tops of the seats.
  •  Do not leave an unsecured child restraint in the vehicle.
  •  Secure loose items in the vehicle.
  •  Do not leave a seat folded down unless needed.
