We had a great experience at Village Auto Oconto. We went into to look for a specific truck we were interested in on their website,but it was already sold.(We did not call ahead to check on it,glad we didn't) so we browsed around to look at the rest of the trucks.We had purchased a truck here back in 2010 with 115K mile and it lasted us until last fall when we sold with 260K We decided to test drive an 05 Chev Silverado Crewcab which is in excellent shape and we bought. Dealing with Tom was besides being very friendly made it a fun way to deal. If and when the time comes for a different vehicle we will check with Village Auto.
2012 Chevrolet Equinox 1LT Review

This car pretty much has everything, more than I have ever had on a car.
Plenty of leg room, ample cargo space, love the white diamond pearl paint and the chrome wheels
Drove off with a pretty sweet ford at a great price.

2012 Chevrolet Equinox 1LT Review
Worst sub ever owned
by Jjtmp from Clovis

Not sure what Chevy has done wrong? But our Equinox was a issue shortly after we purchased it new on Feb of 2012! Like all cars and anything else new you have high hopes and expectations, well the Equinox fell very very short.. At around 7k mile our front strut started rattling. Mounting bolts came off @ 20k miles we started having transmission issues that the dealer gave us run the around about since it was not consistent but it would occasionally slam into the next gear after sitting at a stop light or stop sign and it was time to move. Fought this issue for several month's. Finally at 30k mile the dealer supposedly fix the issue! During the same time frame we noticed a change in the engine noise. After checking it appeared the engine was 3 quarts low on oil. I am very strict with all vehicle services on all my vehicle's. The on board computer stated we still had 50% oil life remaining. So I put in oil took it back to Chevy. Only to have tgem tell me it's normal for these engines to consume a quart of oil about every 1 to 2 thousand miles! Which did not make sense. Based on there theory and the on board computer if I followed from that point on my engine would not only be negative (not really) 3 quarts of oil once the computer tells me at 15% oil life to pwrform a oil change which is about 7500 miles. The engine would blow up from no oil left! So I started doing oil changes at 3000 miles which with full synthetic started to get expensive. This continued until they realized lots if these engines were having a big problem. So for $158 labor the dealership would perform a consumption test and then extend your engine warranty to 150k miles. (They really do have a known issue just Google it) so had that done but still had to keep topping off the oil. At 3000 miles this oil would come out blacker than fresh asphalt! So now fighting trans slipping again at 60k miles that dealer will not cover any more and oil disappearing routinely.
Car is only little past 3 years old at this time. A couple trans flushes seemed to help the slipping. At year 4 the defrost/floor selector stopped working cost to repair over $500 Due to mostly labor to remove the entire radio/center stack to replace Yeap you guessed it cheap part that chevy used and the service advisor knew all to well about stated he gets at least 2 a month in and or parts dept is usually out of stock for the upgraded part.
As the oil issue continued throughout its life with us. Over the next couple year's went through other issues. 1/2 dash lights not working. Rear wiper stopped working head light switch went out all different times. Electric seat warmer. Rear hatch handle. Just could not deal with this horrible vehicle any more. At year 7 with only 86k miles on it we gladly traded it in. Sorry chevy you lost a lifelong customer! Purchased a 2019 Kia Sportage for less than what the Equinox cost me with more bells and whistles. I would avoid these lines of subs like the plague! I've owned several vehicles in my 52 years of life and I have never heard or seen of engines just using oil for no reason. I have a 02 chevy avalanche with 300k all original miles on it and the only oil it uses is a small drip from the rear main not enough to even notice on its dipstick. Also own a 2012 Kia Rio with 135k miles on it never a drop of oil and a flawless car if I may say! If you buy a Equinox hope you enjoy the dealership or other mechanic!
I love the design and comfort of the drive. What I DON'T like are all the issues with it.
-Electrical faults and or shorts
- Pcv replacement
- Navigation issues
Chevy if you see this review please contact me. I would like these issues taken care of.
2013 cruze owner
It meets all my needs and them some. It has a beautiful interior as well as exterior . Lots of room and I love that this truck had built in saddle tool boxes and a bed cover that can be locked. Also the dual heated seats are my favorite. So comfortable and great on gas mileage for a V8.
My 2016 Cruze limited is the best car I’ve ever owned! Currently own several high-end cars and SUV’s — my Cruze has been the most reliable. I never get tired of driving this car, and love the manual transmission.
It's getting hard to find service of this quality anymore. They truly "go the extra mile".
Excellent service at a fair price. Frank Porth Crivitz has always strived to accommodate my needs and my schedule. They say what they do, do what they say and do it right the first time. Their mechanics are top-notch. From stem to stern, from receptionist(s) to parts, this dealership demonstrates focus on providing customer service that's a cut above. A special tip of the hat goes to Ann on the front lines in service...she's a gem!
I have never had a bad experience at Frank Porth Crivitz...I highly recommend them!
2016 Chevrolet Cruze Review
Cheverolet is the BEST Vehicle to own
by GeriM from Falls Church, VA

My car is the very best. My husband has no issues traveling in it with me on long trips. The handling is excellent and the mileage is super efficient. I love the color and details of the exterior. The roomy trunk is another bonus and we have never had a problem with luggage and packages we needed to bring on our trips. I love the instrument panel indicator system and feel confident that it provides accurate information. The smooth handling of my car gives me carefree driving. I do regret hearing that this model is being discontinued as I would have liked to purchase another one in the next year or two.
