Definitely Recommended — the best thing about this car is that its wide open and not many blindspots..the gas mileage is excellent, about the same as my cavalier..i like the look of the front, the back is kind of boxed. i love it :)

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

Great Small Suv — It's a small SUV but it's still a bit big for me but has a very smooth ride. Great in fuel on the highway and decent mileage in the city. It has great torque for getting moving. It just flies down the on ramps.

I Like It. — It's a good car for the money. I have 2 kids and they fit in very good. It has great take off. Hasn't needed many repairs, just regular maintenance (oil changed, etc.). Gas mileage is okay, not great. Overall, fun to drive though.

New To Me Equinox Is Great! — Acceleration is great. Backseat is roomy for passengers. Feel safe driving it. Love the moonroof and stereo. Not good on gas mileage. Love the way it looks.

Solid At This Point.. Couldnt Picture Being On Road For Over 8 Years — So far so good 3 years in. No major problems. Loud road noise but thats what a system is for.

Poor Fuel Mileage, Left Rear Wheel Bearing Went Out At 31000 Mile, Falling Apart — We just had to have one, the fuel mileage on the speck sheet and in the real world did not jive, comfotable ride, heard a noise coming from the left rear, thought it was a bad tire, put new tires on ( Michelin Energy is your best buy) did not fix the howel, took it in and they found a bad wheel bearing at 31000, covered under warranty, so we sold it and lost are a@@ on the crossover, does not have a good resale value!
