Sporty look, but not fun to drive

2006 Chevrolet Equinox LS 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 5A)
Bought this in Dec. 06. I have always had this knocking sound. Cannot figure out what it is. For the past 6 months, I have had a hesitation when I try to start it. On several occasions I didn't know if I was going to be stranded or not. Took it to a mechanic, he acted like nothing was wrong because no lights were on. Also, cd player quit working about 1 year after I bought it. Finally, there is a problem with the gears shifting. Almost seems like the transmission is going out.
Very roomy, especially the back seat. Lots of room for groceries, etc.
Really need to work on performance of vehicle. Needs better stereo/cd system.
