Comfy inside terrible under hood

I have a 2017 chevy equinox it was used by 1 owner who down sized since they were an older couple who garage kept it and bearly drove it I got it with 40k miles on it but its caused me nothing but issues. This thing is amazing on gas its comfy to sit in if u have to for long drives spacious trunk area. But the engine sucks I've had to fill my oil up 6 times in 3 months and I bearly drive anywhere I've been to out of state 1 time in my car since its better on gas then my truck. And we just did a fresh oil change before we left (only went to virgina from pa). Came home from visiting family there and that was the beginning of a month threw I out the month I probably drive it short distances maybe 3-5 times a week since I had to get my kid from school. My oil was COMPLETELY gone like bone dry gone and I was only in virgina for 4 days didn't travel there since we were in an area where everything was and wanted to spend time with my nieces. But before I took it to the dealership I decided to have my mechanic dad check it out he checked my oil and it was dry he was confused so we filled it changed the filter again he examined everything underneath it and all no signs of leaking nothing so he thought maybe over heating nope my car has never over heated. He's still baffled on how my oild is just gone and now every single time I leave in my car which now is like 2-3 times a month if that i have to make sure my oil is there. This car is nothing but a headache and I want to just push it off a cliff but I won't cause I need a freaking car.


GM negligence on oil consumption problems.

I've had two equinoxes and have oil consumption problems at about 100,00 miles on both the first one cost me $2500 to fix Now the second one is burning oil. I,ve t AKEN my SUV to my dealer to have the oil changed on the recommended schedule and GM has done nothing to fix the problem. I have never purchased a foreign auto but this will be my last GM auto. If you no you have a problem you fix it.


Worst headache, not reliable!

I bought this car pre-owned but with less than 100k. There have been the usual neverending issues everyone is complaining about. The not understandable engine oil consumption and burning. The PVC issue that blows the rear main seal. Window motors burning out, back windshield wiper won’t stay attached. This is just a sad and horrible purchase. No one I know that has bought one of these is having any better luck than me. It’s a constant worry, and I’m still making payments!! It’s beyond frustrating and has made me regret taking on a payment for the alleged reliability of a newer vehicle.


Lemon stay away

I bought a 2017 equinox two years ago. It has 90,000 miles on it and I had to replace timing belt, main rear oil seal and the fuse box. Stay away. Chevy wouldn’t help fix rear oil seal even though it’s a defect in the suv.


Rear window broke

Today the rear window broke all by itself not sure why not sure if it needs a recall or what can be done about it


So far so good at 140K

No issues so far. All I’ve done other than tires and brakes is drivers front wheel bearing. Car drives very well. Maintained well too. By the book or Even better



This is great best car I’ve ever owned. Brandon Maxedon from Bolivar Ford. Best salesman Ever kind goes the extra miles. To make car shopping stress free.


Defective vehicle.

This is my forth new Chevy Equinox, and the worst one I ever owned. I Most likely won't ever purchase another one. I want to get rid of it before it cost to much in repairs.


Reliable Car

The car met all my needs. Great leg room in the front and in the back. Very roomy.....great gas mileage and handles well on any road condition.


Very clean, excellent value!

Zero mechanical incidents while owning this car, no warranty or recall issues. Professionally tinted windows, and recently installed new tires. Plan on purchasing newer model.
