Cons

gas mileage isn't great

Very Roomy. — Love my car. Has lots of space inside, handles good in the snow. Isn't as good on gas as I'd hoped for, gets about 24 mpg. Had to replace the rear hub assembly because the anti-lock break sensor went bad, the part was about $200. Insurance is fairly cheap because it has very good safety ratings.

Its A Very Good Car Overall, But Like Everything Else, It Has Its Quirks. — love the interior and heated seats, but handles like a tank. steering is too stiff for my taste, but attains speed quite easily. mileage is decent but could have a bigger fuel tank to extend cruising range. power outlets are hard to get to with the center rest down and could have been put in a better place. the turning radius is horrible. my truck turns shorter.

We Have Had This Suv For 3 Years It Is Perfect, No Problems. — The Equinox is so good that my mom traded her cr-v on one. We love ours, its roomy, quiet, the perfect family suv. My wife absolutely loves it would not own another vehicle. 32,000 miles and no problems, just change oil and filters and go.

Car Looks Nice, Repair Bills Not So Nice Looking! — When I first got the car used in 2008 with 25,000 it ran great. In the first couple months, the wheel bearing went which was close to $450 to fix and the car attempted to start with no key and the lights were flashing on/off. The PCM was blamed for it so that was replaced another $500. The car still tries to turn over after removing the key so the PCM might not have been the issue I'm thinking! At 45,000 the head gasket went bad. After calling GM numerous times, they agreed to help cover the $2000 repair cost so I put out about $600 for that. There were other normal wear and tear repairs. I do think the front brakes wear quickly and the radio area gets really hot. Also the seats seem to stain easily esp if it's raining, you will have little white dots on seat. I get about 200 miles per tank.

Economical — This vehicle runs quiet and smooth. It's sets high enough to see well in traffic. It had lots of room in the front seat, the back seat plus it can hold a lot of cargo. It is very economical. It gets 22+ mpg. I get a lot of compliments on it.

Pros

Solid handling, quiet ride, and good acceleration. The 4 wheel drive works great in deep snow. Added tow package and towing ability great, load handling great. Dependable.

Cons

MPG not great 16/23. Little things starting to break.

Overall Great Ride. — Power and handling added to a roomy and quiet interior makes the Equinox a good choice. Styling is a plus. Dark window all around adds class and discreteness. Whether loaded with passengers, luggage or materials this SUV is up to the challenge.

Incredible Comfortable Car. — Loved the ride on trips. Great acceleration and handling. Incredibly versatile car that has a great towing capacity and with its towing package. Very little maintenance needed since I purchased it in 2006. If I did not have 2 other cars I would keep it.
