I fell in love with the Equinox in 2006 - I had a rental car for a week when the transmission went on my Pathfinder. I requested an SUV, as I feel more comfortable in them, and got an '06 Equinox. A year later, I finally leased my own! I have had my 2007 Equinox for 2 years now, I am only up to 13,600 miles (but I will soon be adding on miles fast when I start commuting to school). I love it's unique looks on the outside. Inside is comfortable, lots of cargo room with the seats folded down. The back seat slides to create more room in the seat or cargo area, whatever is needed. There is an accessory lighter plug in the front and back. Handles well and has no mechanical problems so far! Lets hope it can stay problem free for my commute! Love the little computer that tells you tire pressure, oil life, mpg, etc. I LOVE the auxillary jack for my ipod (the '06 doesn't have that). Sound system is great. My only complaint is gas mileage (of course, it is an SUV, and that's what you get), but it claims to get 19/25 mpg and I actually average 14. Overall, very satisfied with my Equinox and will be buying out my lease early, so it will be around for awhile!

Bought my 2007 new in 10/2006 and has been a great vehicle. Just turned 76,000 miles this week and the only thing I've had to do is change the oil, get new back brake pads (no rotors) and new tires (OEM Brigestones not that great of tire. Never in the shop for anything else and everything works great. AC season coming again so we will see if AC strong yet. Front brakes dealer states will go to 110k-120k miles. Also, very quiet, drives great and great MPG consistantly 21.7 MPG highway/city driving.

This is my first vehicle. It was purchased used with high mileage but for a good price. It had a few tweaks that had to be fixed (tachometer issue, gas fumes coming from A/C, etc.) Still the car has a very smooth ride and has a nice takeoff. Others have had issues with blind spots but I have not had this issue as all windows are very visible. If you feel this is an issue, then blind spot dome mirrors will work perfectly. I also personally like the interior that GM had on its 07-10 model vehicles although it is generally viewed as just cheap plastic, which is understandable but the features work great. I hope to have this vehicle for a long time and I hope it serves me well.

I bought the Equinox LT used, we drive highway mainly, with the new tires it's quiet and comfortable. The AWD works great. The remote start is a blessing at -35C, the Equinox usually sits for 3 or 4 days at a time and has never failed ( except once). I have 78,0000k,s(48,000 miles). Pulls my boat with no problem. Only complaint, it wouldn't start once, the problem was diagnosed as broken bolts on the battery. Simple solution.It replaced a 10yr old RAV4.

Having had the Equinox for close to 3 years now, I can say that it is a great vehicle. With some price incentives and whatnot, it cost 4,000 less than the comparable Toyota Rav4. The Equinox is nothing fancy,(Mine is the base model)but it gets the job done without complaining. It has comfortable seats, all of which are adjustable. (a really great feature in the back seat!) The trunk is enormous, certainly bigger than expected, yet for having so much space, it doesn't feel big when driving, and is easy to park. Up to 38,000 miles, the Equinox has been problem free. It has only had to go to the dealer for routine routine service. One of my favorite features is the set of buttons on the dash that let you scroll through the vehicle millage, oil life, distance traveled, and fuel economy. They are in easy reach, and allow me to monitor my driving. As far as driving dynamics go, it isnt exactly sporty, and I doubt it could go offroad, but it gets the job done. Fuel economy is good. I get 26 on the highway,19 in the city. Mine is front wheel drive, so that helps those numbers stay high. My only complaints are that the engine feels a bit stressed under highway acceleration, and the rear visibility isn't exactly stellar. The bottom line is, if you are looking for a reliable vehicle that can carry a lot of stuff and five people, this is the one to go with.

I have never owned a Chevrolet product. I bought the Equinox due to its AWD and other safety features. For the price, I could not find a better value. I am now a Chevrolet fan. When my wife decided to replace our Focus, she got a 2007 HHR. The warranty for the Equinox is great and I heard very nice reviews from co-workers who also own earlier Equinox models. I decided to get the base model with no options. I am very pleased with the results. I have to admit that I like the HHR styling better but no AWD HHR exists. This past winter I learned the value of traction control as my Equinox refused to lose control as I tried to skid across ice and snow covered parking lots.

I am the 2nd owner of my Equinox LS FWD , the first owner was my mother, who bought it new in 2007. Overall, the Equinox does what it was built to do well. Pros: -Even through 8 winters in the Rust Belt, it is showing no signs of rust or rot. -It has gone 147,000 miles without any major engine/transmission issues. -It isn't particularly powerful, but it isn't a dog, it can pass with relative ease. -It handles well considering its size. -As at least one other reviewer has said, the sound system is pretty good. Cons: -Most of the bugs seem to lie in the Stabilitrak, traction control, and ABS systems. The warning lights for these show up every so often, but eventually go away, and it hasn't required servicing. -If you plan on buying an Equinox with the cloth seats, then buy some seat covers. I kid you not, water will stain the seats. -The rear wiper motor is prone to failure. The Equinox hasn't let me down yet, and hopefully it'll last another 147,000 miles. Keep up with the oil changes and such, and you'll have a reliable vehicle.
