Ultimately I did not end up purchasing the vehicle that I spent a lot of time looking at, but I thought it worthwhile to write a review of my experience. My first contact was Blaine, the Sales Manager. He was incredibly nice and had his consultant Cody call me with all the information I requested. Cody was knowledgable and what he didn't know he tried to find out for me. There was no pressure and I would not hesitate to send someone there who was looking for a preowned vehicle. They had a very nice selection of cars.
Better (2017) than Honda CRV (2015)
by Tg1625 from South Bend IN

Bought a 2017 LT Equinox AWD in 2019
1) Quieter than CRV (5)
2) Braking is smoother than CRV (5)
3) Engines about equivalent (4)
4) Anti-lock brake on snow/ice condition better than CRV (5)
5) Mylink does not allow installing Carplay - worse than CRV (3) - have to rely on my wife's i-phone on a trip. I will give CRV a (4)
6) Back seat cannot recline - CRV reclines by ~2 inches (3) - only if I have to sit in the back
7) Reliability - TBD (CRV's battery died after 3.5 yrs)
8) Value: I paid ~$27 K in 2015 for a new CRV with AWD and ~$16K for this used Equinox (7400 miles) almost like new. I have been impressed except for the Carplay availability.
Had a very good experience at carsmart. Anthony was very helpful and put me in the car i wanted fast! I highly recommend CarSmart. I had a friend suggest it to me and checked out the reviews online & decided to give it a chance. Very friendly environment and the sales people seemed very trustworthy. I have had a bad experience in the past with other dealerships and am very happy with my decision to come to CarSmart.
A Wonderful Car to own

In Sept 2018 I was looking for a SUV and the Chevy Equinox met all my requirements. I purchased it for a fair price and it's January 2019 and 35,000 miles later I am still happy with my Equinox. I have had no issues except with the Michelin tires having to be replaced at 24,000 miles. Michelin pro-rated the tires and a new set cost me $400.00 plus tax and mounting/balance. I am very satisfied with my Equinox.
After 2 days they gave us a car to drive. Has to figure out what was wrong, order parts. Had the car Monday morning to Friday afternoon. New car only have had since April. Were told it would be clean and have fuel in it. Was clean but told ???you will have to get gas!??? Fuel light was on when I got in. Was not happy at all with the overall way thru handled the situation!!!!
Chevrolet Equinox is one of the Best

Our Chevy Equinox has been an exceptional vehicle for our family for the past three years. It is wonderful for traveling providing comfortable space for the driver and passengers as well as providing a good amount of storage. We have been very pleased with out Chevy Equinox.
Dave went above and beyond to get the truck I purchased ready by staying late and making my pick-up go smoothly even on his day off. He had everything in order for a smooth and effortless pick-up of my new truck!!
Best SUV I've ever owned!

I just love this car. The backup camera is awesome and really helps with blind spots. Talking about blind spots, it also lights up on the side mirrors when a car is in my blind spot while driving. It makes me so safe!
My salesman, Jeff Barnes, went the extra mile to accommodate my schedule. My wife was in Cleveland Clinic. I was staying in Cleveland 3-4 days and returning home for a day or two. On one occasion, Jeff was willing to give up a day off for the lease purpose. I had to cancel, he worked around my schedule to complete the lease process.

Love it! Was in a serious accident and the air bags saved me from getting hurt. I currently bought a 2019 to replace my other truck that I didn't plan to replace but keep until it won't run any more....
We have been buying from John for years. He has made our experience with Grogan a pleasure and will not purchase anywhere else. The accounting department was ready for us when we came in and made things quick. We have never experienced any issues and don???t intend to based on the level of service Grogans employees provide. Thanks!

Fits us Perfectly
by Cole from Durant, OK

Great sized SUV to fit our all around needs. Not to big and not too small. Appealing interior with a sporty design. Just enough "bells & whistles" without having to bust out too much cash. Good fit for kids in the back seat or even a solo commuter with the highway MPG. Great trunk for groceries or travel necessities. Haven't had any performance issues yet. All-around solid car.
With the last couple cars I???ve purchased elsewhere I???ve learned to dread the all day affair, I was pleasantly surprised to find that from the time I walked into the dealership to the time I left in my new car was under three hours which included my test drive, trade in and establishing financing; Everyone I interacted with was wonderful and there way zero pressure to hurry up and make a decision. This is the third vehicle my family has purchased from salesman John Baertschi over the years and we???ll just keep coming back.
Great used car

This car is loaded. Beautiful car. Doesn’t look used at all. Smooth ride. Very comfortable with lots of room. I had a Cruze previously but was too small and cramped. Love the Equinox.
Just bought a new 2019 AWD Traverse. Extremely happy with our salesperson Kevin. They took care of everything including the license plate. Definitely look forward to working with Kevin and Knapp Chevy when it comes time to buy our next vehicle.
Best car I’ve owned

I love this car! Lots of cargo space, leg room in back is great, handles excellent, drives like a dream. Love the Bluetooth option, navigation is a cool feature!
I received one initial contact call from Mark Williams after an inquiry into leasing an Equinox. Mr. Williams was professional, very accommodating and not pushy in any way, upfront and honest. Mark was able to meet all my requests & needs on my lease in an extremely timely manner, and thorough throughout my experience at Stanford Allen. I will DEFINITELY refer him to anyone looking for a new vehicle.
Very reliable and comfortable.

This car met all our needs for our growing family. There were things like the back up camera and the speaker system that were not needed but just an added bonus. We are so thankful to know that when we have our daughter in the back seat that she is safe in this car. It rides so nice and handles well. And the gas mileage is also a reason we were looking at this car. We are very pleased with our purchase, it's the perfect size.
Stanford Allen Cadillac was one of three car dealership I went to and the salesman there was by far better then the other . The salesman had more information about the car. I wanted and was patient with me and it not rush me into a car I did not completely want. I recommend going to this dealership for your first car and every car after

I just got my SUV a few days ago, but so far I absolutely love it! I was unsure about owning an equinox at first because I like a sporty looking vehicle but the one that I got was the right color and the interior is perfect!! It has the sportiness that I was looking for. It is exactly what I wanted and it has everything that I was wanting. It met all of my checks on the list. I am so glad I was able to purchase this vehicle.
I walked in Thursday and drove off with a vehicle thanks to Michael White I had a great experience I would recommend a family member or friend there anytime. He actually took his time and really showed that he cared.

This car has been everything! I wanted a vehicle I could feel safe in and would get me where ever I needed with out a problem. It has all wheel drive which is great in the state I live in. It has plenty of room and it’s very sleek inside. I’m so happy I made this purchase.
Great customer service and support. Our salesman was absolutely great! He listened and followed through before, during and after the purchase of our new car...
Worst engine I ever had
by BEpbfl from Paim Beach Gardens,Fl
December 29, 2018
Initially I bought the car with very low mileage.29,000 thought I had a great deal. Then in 8 months the air conditioning went out and completely replace everything $1,500 by my mechanic. The drive axles went bad replace them not too bad couple hundred dollars. Using oil is a big problem always low when I checked it adding oil continuously. Then the engine shut down on me I was able to get it to my mechanic and he diagnosed that I needed a new engine. Ordered a new engine and he installed it $3,800. Now the exhaust manifold is cracked and I have to replace that another 300. I would not recommend a 2010 Equinox to anybody unless it got all fixed up already a motor new are you see new manifold new axles yeah then be a good time to buy it if you got a deal.
We had a great experience buying a car! We will definitely recommend Don's Automotive to our friends and family!

This car is hands down better than the older equinox. Fair amount of power for a 4 Cylinder. All in all a comfortable and quit car.
