    When Searching...kept Coming Back To This One. I Am Really Satisfied With This Crossover. — This really is a beautiful vehicle. Switching from a '97 Camry to this is a HUGE change. The seats are much more comfortable and I appreciate the height advantage of the vehicle. So far (83 miles) everything is running smoothly, I am adjusting to the difference in the engines. Due to the new release of the vehicle (and the CARS program) I did not receive any incentives or break in the sticker price. It really is early for me to provide ratings.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: 32 mpg highway; front/back seat leg room; individual wheel suspension; six speaker sound w/trial XM; 5 yr road side assistance

    Cons: with a 3 yr bumper-to-bumper should you purchase an extended warranty? rust proofing? undercarriage coating?

    Why Look At Anything Else? — I have one. I got 28 mpg on the first tank in mixed driving and Interstate cruising at 74mph. The vehicle is fantastic, and although I’m used to driving sportier vehicles, I do not feel penalized by the peppy 4 cylinder, great suspension and sound deadening. The styling is great as is the fit and finish. As far as GM engines are concerned, we traded in a GM 3.1 L engined vehicle with 233,xxx miles on it that would travel all day long at 8o+ mph and spent its last vacation going to Washington DC from Atlanta. I’m VERY happy with my purchase!

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Engine, suspension,fit and finish,value

    Cons: none

    This Is A Total New Car In Many Ways And A Real Feat On Gas Mileage. — We like the excellent gas mileage for a vehicle this size. It has many nice features as the back up camera, moving rear seat optimizing space for passengers or hauling room, folding rear and one front seat for long items. The car is fun to drive and is very quiet and smooth.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Moveable rear seat, rear camera,  

    Cons: none

    Love It — Wow - I have been waiting for the 2010 equinox and I just love the new design outside and inside. I got the LT2 with sunroof in the black granite metallic GM has a winner with this one! I am so glad that I did not get the 09.

    New 2010 Chevy Equinox — great gas mileage-vehicle still in break-in period and getting 32.5 mpg highway. Flexible rear seating and cargo space. Very comfortable & spacious vehicle to drive. Good instrumentation. Great value for the money.

    The Equinox Has Been My Favorite Vehicle That I Have Ever Owned! — I like the way it handles and I feel very safe in The Equinox as it has lots airbags, front and sides! Good gas milage as it averaged 25.6 in town and highway combined! I like the simplicity of all the controls and gauges! The cruise controll is great and I like the menu that is loaded with information about the vehicle. It even tells you your tire pressures!

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Great appearance, great gas milage, handles the curves great, good power, very reliable, lots of room, I love the back up camera, nice sunroof and I recommend the Equinox to anyone!

    Cons: The origional engine was consuming oil but the dealer replaced it under warranty and The new engine was great! Does not use any oil between changes!

    Very Good Car, I Would Take It If I Had To — This car gets great milage when you press the ECO button on it. It doesnt have the greatst of power, but it'll get you by. It is pretty fun to drive, but if you have the ECO button on, it'll be more doggy when your goin up a hill. It'll take it forever to downshift, but I guess its because its trying to save fuel. It gets around 28mpg.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great gas milage

    Cons: Its very doggy and downshifts up to 4th gear going up a hill.

    I'd Give It An A Or An A- — The Equinox is fun, drives and handles very well. It has not needed any repairs of any kinds. The new styling for 2010 is great! I get comments or questions on it almost daily, usually in a parking lot somewhere. I am getting twice the mileage as my trade in, so I am very pleased with the mileage and money I'm saving on gas. My only major complaint is that without mud flaps, the car gets really dirty driving in wet weather. I'll be getting front & back flaps from the dealership very soon!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great styling, features, ergonomics

    Cons: Mud flaps should be standard equipment on a crossover

    Looks Nice But The Quality In The Parts Is Missing. Would Not Buy Again. —

    Owned since 8/09. Heat & defrost broke 1/10;dealer took 2 days to fix. 6/10, condenser on air conditioning unit & starter broke. Still waiting for condenser ordered from GM. GM better work on quality control. Won't buy another Chevy. This is an update for our 2010 Equinox.. It took almost two months for our dealer to fix the air conditioning condenser & the starter. The car was in the dealers shop for the duration. When they ordered the parts need, GM told them they didn't make that condenser anymore!! We couldn't believe it. After many irate calls by us to GM customer service and our dealer a new part was installed (I don't know where they got it from) The dealer was nice enough to pay one car payment for us. We really made pests of ourselves. Now, fast forward to December 2011 and the battery went dead. They replaced the battery and then the rear window defrosters didn't work.. We had had it with the Equinox. So we told the dealer we were trading it in. He gave us a good trade in quote. We test drove every model on the lot-the Sonic, Cruse, Malibu, Impala, even the Jeep Compass. They were all nice cars but my husband (a big guy) wasn't comfy driving any of them. So we bought a 2012 Equinox! So far, it seems alright. But it's only got 300 miles on it. Wish us luck!!! (updated Jan. 2012)

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Looks nice, very roomy inside.

    Cons: To many parts are breaking. Heater in January, air conditioning condenser in June, starteer and lots fo air noise from passenger side window. Dealer had to order parts from GM. It's been over a week & still nothing. Not happy.
