Chevy Suv — Great SUV for a small family. Needs more room or a 3rd row seating, would be great. great gas mileage and ride for the vehicle. would recommend it to anyone looking for a AWD small SUV. Love it on long trips.

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.

Changing the headlights is a hassle.

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.

Pros

This is a great mid sized SUV for a small family or hauling cargo.  The built in shelf in the back really helps with trips to and from the store.

Cons

The center console is a bit shallow

Good And Practical — Overall the appearance is nice a few scratches on the rear side of the car. The heated seats make the front seats comfortable while the back seats have pleanty of leg room and are adjustable. The gas mileage is 20-22 in town and 23-25 highway, maintenance costs are fairly low. The car handles well in all types of weather.

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! — This was not the vehicle I went to look at , but it is the one I brought home. This vehicle has all the right things in the right places, it is a pleasure to drive and work on. The basic features are plain but very reliable and that means alot to a person who does not have much time.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

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.

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.
