Overall I Like This Car. It Has Served Me Well In The Time I've Had It. — This is a very smooth ride. Easy on the bumps, comfortable, and has a lot of leg room for your backseat passengers. I know quite a few people have had issues w/ this year Equinox. The only thing I've had to do to mine is regular maintenance.

Pros

Strong motor, durable automatic transmission, side curtain air bags as well as front air bags, oil change service reminder, lots of modern gizmos. AWD. 4 wheel disc brakes. Sliding/reclining rear 60/40 bench seat. Quiet while driving.

Cons

Cloth seats are hard to keep spotlessly clean - too light of a grey color for my liking. Wide turning radius. Rear headrests are obnoxiously large when backing up.

Roomy And Fast Awd - Great Suv For Any Weather — Decent gas mileage at 25 mpg. Handles like a dream. Low to the ground for great corning, you wouldn't know you're in a 4wd capable car. Fast and strong v6 coupled with a long-lasting durable 5 speed transmission. All the safety gizmos you can think of. No complaints, it's a wonderful car.

Great Sporty Suv! If Your Into Sports Cars Like Me And You Need Something Bigger, I Recomend This! — Runs smooth, looks great, very sporty for a suv crossover, good sound system. Gas mileage not so great because its a suv, i have a lt so it has everything, sun roof, everything power, and leather interior. mechanically sound. medium acceleration.

My Little Suv — We bought the Equinox used from a dealer in Ft. Worth, and it has been a good car for us. Has leather interior, DVD system, 6 disc CD changer, On-Star, XM satelite radio, and heated front seats. Its been a great addition to the family.

The Grill On The Front Of This Truck, Can Be Intimadating... — i like the extra room my family has, and i like the all wheel drive, for the winter. Dislikes are when i go over bump, i hear a lot of rattles, had shocks check. And they are fine. Dislikes is the stupid water in my truck, major defect.

2005 Chevrolet Equinox. — Like I said, the only hassle is changing the headlights. But, you don't have to change them often. Maybe once every three years. Also, the headlights only turn off when it is in park. Lots of room, good gas mileage and very stylish for a family vehicle. Love the color of mine too.
