2006 Chevrolet Equinox LT 4dr SUV AWD (3.4L 6cyl 5A)
We rented this car some years back and I fell in love with it then. I bought it used with on 33k miles on it. The car was great at first. I took it for its 1st oil change then the check engine light came on. Then the abs brakes started grinding (and brakes were new) then static was coming through the speakers while a cd was playing, which I read was an early sign of electrical problems. I loved the styling and ride of this truck but way too many problems that chevy needed to work out! Especially for the car being only 3 years old and not even hitting 40k miles yet. Needless to say I traded it in and not for a Chevy, which used to be my favorite car.
Back seat slid & was very roomy! Seats were comfortable. AWD was awesome in Chicago winters.
All the mechanical kinks needed to be worked out. This was a fairly new model so hopefully the 2010s are better because I really loved the design of the car!
