Chevy — Love it. Great amount of space and smooth ride.Handles great. Braking is prety good. Acceleration is awsome. I have not had any trouble to this point. Only thing that went wrong was the battery had a cell go bad. The appearance is great. Inside has a great look and smell.

Cons

Safe, Reliable Family Car. — This car is by far the best car I have ever owned. There was ample room in the back for groceries, the sun roof was nice during the warm weather. The back seat leans down for more room. It also moves forwards or backwards depending on if you want more room in the back seat or in the back for stuff. The gas mileage is great. We only had to fill up 1 time a week, at 50$ for premium.

Fun! — This has been an incredible car for us! The Equinox is a small SUV with mid-size SUV room! Gas mileage has been good. Dependable but fun transportation.The back seat is perfect for people who have long legs -- they don't have to be scrunched in the back anymore!

Sharp Car With Plenty Of Room — I receive compliments on my car all of the time. Whenever the family needs to go on a trip it's my car they take. Mpg isn't horrible but could be better. Handles smoothly, my grandmother even likes to drive it.

Great Base Suv — Great gas mileage 23-25mpg. Rides pretty nice, no real problems other than had to replace spark plugs and wires, apparently per GM a problem with all Equinox's, otherwise great vehicle. Still looks brand new. Good car for the money!

2008 Chevy Equinox Lt1 (not Mine) — It feels like a sports car. I have not noticed any needs of repair, and I love the way it looks. Blue, chrome rims, chrome trim. Beautiful. Gas mileage is decent, the one thing I don't like is that setting the heat for remote starting it in the morning is tricky. It is so much fun to drive.

My Number 2 Brand New Car I Bought For Myself — I had to get out of my scion- it was a death trap this past winter. I couldnt take it any more, and originally I was going to buy a used Equinox, but I got a better deal on the New one!
