GREAT EXPERIENCE

Great clean location, Andrew Fitzpatrick was very helpful and positive employee. Got in and out fast and would recommend to EVERYONE looking to buy a new or pre-owned vehicle. I was shocked I got such a great reliable car with NO ACCIDENTS and only one owner, please check them out! Car meets all my needs! No rust, dents or even a scratch!

A good vehicle.

Body still looks great on outside. Rides good. Seat are good and intacke. Motor sounds awesome. Had to put muffler on , it had rusted out. Has the most miles of any of our cars. Praying it keep on going.

Great highway car.

My Equinox is like an Impala with a giant trunk. It's comfortable on the highway and gets decent mileage. After a few years of driving her, the biggest problem I've had has been 2 bad ABS sensors.

Horrible vehicle

Overheating will be an issue. This year is the first year made and it has lots of issues. Buying used is already a risk but any company selling this is screwing you out of money.

Most newest car ive bought

This car is worth the buy. It has plenty of leg room, has alot of space in the truck. This truck is very reliable for someone with teenagers.

Do not buy this car!

You will constantly be repairing this car. I have already put more money into this car than I paid for the car. You have a hard time starting the car. It also likes to put itself in limp home mode whenever he wants to. This car has caused me more stress. I can't afford another car. So I'm stuck fixing this piece of xxxx. I have dreams that I get rid of the car and I wake up very happy.

4.1

It's been a trouble free car for 19 years

It's a quiet running, smoothly accelerating vehicle with good road manners. Negatives are: huge rear-view mirrors and small rear window severely limiting visibility, making it a parking lot nightmare. Also, due to the long wheelbase, the turning circle diameter is excessively large, often making it necessary to back up and crank it in again where one simple turn of the wheel should suffice. Inside there are no pockets or storage places for odds and ends like sunglasses or a note book. This creates junk in the back seat. Would i buy one again? No.
