Good looking.  Popular SUV

Wife's Car. — Although popular, if we were to buy a SUV in the future, we would look to a different model. The mpgs weren't what were advertised, and the ride isn't enjoyable for passengers. Probably because of the short wheelbase. Pass on this vehicle.

Pros

It's a great car for what I do, I'm a professional photographer and it handles all of my equipment.  I'm 6'5" and there is lots of room in the front and it's easy to get in and out.

Cons

Road noise comes through the car I've tried different tires but it's still there.

Great Car — I drive it from client to client and it does a great job for me. When I check my average speed it's never over 35mph, and I still get 27+ mpg! it's the 4 cylinder engine. Stop and go traffic city driving. I've gotten 32+ the few times that I've had it on the interstate.

Comfortable Drive With A Lot Of Extra Comforts For The Cummute Or Roadtrip. — The SUV handles very well in all terrains and snow/ice. The acceleration could be quicker but it is not the worst either. I feel very safe driving this SUV and putting my twins it! I like that I can even play a DVD in the infotainment system when the SUV is in park!

Chevy Equinox 2010 — Not a bad car. Was in love with it for years. My dogs can't get in anymore. The back slopes weirdly when the back seat is removed. It annoyed my dogs. All in all, if not for them, I would've kept it. Back deck too high.

Appearance, Comfortable, Great Gas Mileage, Safe

Cons

Slow to accelerate, slight blind spot on left side

Safe, Affordable Suv! — I genuinely LOVE this car! Its stylish, affordable, comfortable, and reliable. There can occasionally be a blind spot on the left side I have noticed. It is never in the shop, only for standard maintenance and oil changes. The gas mileage is fantastic for an SUV; around 25mpg as a daily driver and 32 mpg on the highway/interstate. The acceleration can be a bit slow as with most SUV's, but the braking and handling is superb. I feel extremely safe and in control while driving this car and it can be fun to drive! The only complaint I have about this car is the same complaint I have with all SUV's... they are a bit slow for me.

A Great Looking And Driving Car That Is Very Reliable — Love the gas mileage and versatility. This car is so easy to drive and fun to look at. It also has an eco mode that gets you even better gas mileage. This is a great car for a family, college student or first time driver looking for economy and safety.

We Love It — we love it so far already put 2000 miles on it. never skimp on a car because factory built is better then added on later.it is everything we ahd hoped for. forget navigation we have tomtom for a lot less. gas isnt good or bad. lacks the power we thought a 6 would give.

I An Enjoying The Car Overall And Believe I Have Made A Great Decision In Purchasing This Suv. — The vehicle has performed better than advertised with mpg in town at 25-26 and on the highway at 32. Very comfortable ride, roomy interior, the power lift-gate is worth the extra price. The backup camera is a great asset for this vehicle and should be standard equipment for all SUVs. I think Chevrolet has a winner in design and appeal.

This Car Was An Excellent Choice For Us And It Was Reasonably Priced. — The Equinox handles very well. It has a smooth and quiet ride. The engine, even though I have the smaller engine with FWD, gives plenty of power on the highway and up hills. I haven't had my car that long but it seems to be a lot less thirsty than my previous car. The interior of the car is roomy and the dashboard is clearly and logically laid out. I love the rear park assist and the back-up camera. The car is a lot of fun to drive but it also feels very safe. It also has On-Star which gives me added security. I would recommend this car to anyone who wants a mid-sized car with a lot of room for passengers and "stuff".
