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.

Good And Reliable — Overall a descent car with a good amount of cargo space for a family or hauling a few things from the store. The front seat folds down completely allowing for larger items to be transported. The heated seats are awesome and the gas mileage descent Overall the car handles well

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.)

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.
