Bought this SUV in 2009 with 42,000 on it. have 105,000 on it and it has been a really nice car. Get 21 MPG in mixed driving (AWD) and as much as 26 MPG on highway. My neighbor has one with 219,000 on it. My wife says this is her favorite car we have owned. Good in snow, no issues with sunroof, and nice leather interior. The one complaint I would have is the turning radius.

I had a 2005 Equinox LT for 4 years. It was the best car I have ever owned! I have had no really serious problems with this car. Had to replace the CD player in it, not a big deal. Got the same exact style and it works just fine. Very comfortable car. I have been told by a few people that it is more comfortable than a Trailblazer. Backseat is very spacious. I have never felt cramped in this car. It handles very well in the snow. Never got stuck. I have moved with this vehicle and it would fit quite a bit of boxes. I got anywhere between 19-23 mpg. It all depends on how you take care of your car. The only reason I don't have it anymore is because it got totaled. But it is a very reliable car!!!!

I have owned many new cars but this was my first experience in a SUV/Crossover. I bought it new and it has been great, no major problems or issues and I drive the car alot. I have over 90K on the car and it still looks and drives nice. I would say it is a great car. My car has the sun roof and the LT package, it was all the stuff I needed.

2005 Equinox

by from on December 6, 2011

Nice car. Held up very well. Drove over 120,000 miles with few problems. Bought low. Good trade in value.

Lowered expectations

by from Chattanooga on December 28, 2010

In general an acceptable suv. Brake, radiator, and air condoning repairs within 50k. If you buy one get a warranty.

Great So Far

I have had this vehicle two and a half years....has 34,900 miles on it. The only thing I have had to replace is the battery. It was only due to extremely high heat here in AZ. Anyhow, my only complaints are the interior cloth collects any type of stains and they are impossible to get out. The buttons on the CD/Stereo started chipping off the week I got the vehicle. Other than that, it rides well...plenty of room and low price for what you get.
