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.

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.

Pros

I Love this car with all my heart, it does great in the snow and on nasty roads, seats comfortably and the back is great for loading things and the seats fold down (including the passenger seat) to make more room for hauling things if needed.

Cons

THE TRANSFER CASE!  Oh my god is that thing expensive to replace.

Awesome Family Car — I love everything about this car, except the repair bill, but that I think is partially fault to the dealership not catching these things prior to my purchase. It handles great in the snow, Gas mileage is awesome for it being an SUV and having the ability to stuff whatever I can into it is a huge plus.

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.
