2006 Chevrolet Equinox LS 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Poor Quality, performance poor. Had to put a quart of oil every 500 miles. No it wasn't leaking. Been to three different mechanics all say need to break into engine, could cost upwards of four grand. Decide to put oil in when needed. Maybe it just a lemon. But will not buy Chevy brand small suv.

2006 Chevrolet Equinox LS 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 5A)


Review

The dealer kinda pushed this car on me cause I needed a vehicle to carry my stuff and my 70lb husky...that worked but my car has 80000 miles on it and the repairs are more than the thing's worth now. All I asked was that it gets me from point A to point B and now it over heats about every 20 minutes of driving. I see why the dealer wanted to get rid of this thing so much I NEVER WANT TO OWN ANOTHER ONE OF THESE [non-permissible content removed] AGAIN!!! they have non standard tires and a pain in butt to change the head lights and it takes forever to heat up in the winter and enjoy less than standard tire size.

2006 Chevrolet Equinox LS 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Bought new in 2006, now approaching 110,000 miles, nothing major went wrong, one warranty repair on front wheel bearings. Great, comfortable ride on highway, huge legroom in the back seat, great utility for roadtrips or just ride to and from work. Did not expect it to last this long or this many miles, but by the way it drives and looks it may make it to 200,000!


Best Features

Rear seat legroom, highway handling, smooth transmission


Worst Features

Turning radius is pretty bad- that's the only feature that I wish to be better. Perhaps this was done on purpose to avoid rollovers from sharp turns?

2006 Chevrolet Equinox LT 4dr SUV AWD (3.4L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Very reliable, practical vehicle. No fancy BS. This will get the job done. My commute is throught heavy traffic and the car is super reliable, gas mileage is good , not great. I ideally need more room, but due to a rough commute, this was the best choice. I have had many Chevy's over the years and they have all gone over 200k with regular maintenance.
