Beaucoup daccessoires pour un 2006, tous encore fonctionnels. Excellent rapport qualité / prix. Le seul bémol, le toit ouvrant ne souvre pas pleine grandeur. Pleinement satisfait, je recommande lÉquinoxe sans hésiter !!

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. Update 9/2015 Well after being told the heater core is bad and finding antifreeze in the oil again, I have traded the car in. It once again is eating antifreeze and running hot. I was told it could be the head again. The ignition switch had been changed 3 times and the key still comes out while the cars running. The dealer has no idea why when its damp or raining the car will either try to start with no keys or will not turn off. The stearing feels loose but they see nothing and there is knocking coming from the rear that they have no idea what it is. I didnt feel putting close to $3000 + into the car was worth it when the trade in value was around $5000. Its hard driving a car with your young child in it wondering if its going to break down.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Stylish Exterior
AWD Good in snow

Cons: Low gas mileage
Head gasket blew at 45,000
Headlights hard to change
Electrical issues when raining/wet
PCM, front wheel bearing replaced at 26,000
Replacing front brakes alot

Never Again — This vehicle has not at all what I was hoping for when purchasing it. I believe that this one was in an accident and not registered on the CarFax. The wheel-bearings were the first to be replaced by the dealership. In return of the vehicle, my steering wheel was no longer straight. It now eats up tires like there is no tomorrow.

Pros: AWD

Cons: Everything else

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Runs smooth

Cons: None

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

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.

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great driving car, very versatile and can handle 8' lumber.  Very comfortable driver, heated leather seats are incredible in winter months and the AWD makes it able to go anywhere.

Cons: It does not get 42 mpg, averages around 25 mpg

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: comfort

Cons: cant think of a reason

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Handles good, lots of space.

Cons: gas mileage isn't great
