2005 Chevrolet Equinox LS Fwd 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 5A)
I bought this SUV for it's roomy interior as both my grandson (15) and I are well over six feet. A fine choice, I might add. That rear seat makes a big difference. The style both in and out are very good. ***** I AM 83 AND I LOVE IT *****
The adjustable rear seat. It's just plain fun to drive. While it's not expensive it's not plain looking either.
Steering, You need to much room to make a 180' turn. Brake pedal needs to be moved slightly to left, or just a wider pedal. cup holders, ugh. Clean up the radio control section.

We first saw the car at the LA Auto Show. Both my husband and I loved it! We both automatically agreed on the Lazer Blue Metallic as this is a very unusual color. We drove it over Easter weekend up to Northern California and were very impressed with its long distance fuel economy and its very smooth ride. We get a lot of stares because of the color, but we don't mind. We enjoy the car and our son thinks this SUV "Rocks".
Our favorite is the slide back second row seat. Also the cargo room with the self. This provided space for our two suitcases and extra room on top. It also kept our suitcases hidden if we left the vehicle while traveling.
Make the On-Star standard on all models of the Equinox. The one we chose did not have it already equipped. We would have liked to have included this feature. Also the directional vision that the Blazer's used to have on this vehical as well. It helps to know which direction we are going.

At first we thought we had a winner, but after driving it for a while we found it not what it was cracked up to be. My son plays hockey. He's a goalie and there is not room for his equipment. The seats on trips, long and short, feel like benches at a hockey game. The controls are confusing. When we recieved the car, parts of the car in the interior were loose. There were stains all in the car, probably the dealers's fault. We wish we had purchased another vehicle!!
Redesign the entire interior, and car might be a winner!
