This is a totally under-rated and ignored crossover. Easily the best vehicle I have ever owned. Versatility unmatched by any other competing small SUV. The Edmunds review of the Equinox is more favorable than most. The highest praise I can give is that very soon our '07 LT will be joined in the garage by an '08 Sport.
MPG is fantastic. 23-24 around, with 26 attainable on long highway trips, including 3 adults and a dog on a holiday trip to Las Vegas. Absolute comfortable seating and easy to use controls. The OnStar, a feature not available on any competition is worth every penny. Pioneer sound system is great!
Chevy needs to advertise the Equinox like crazy. I can't recall ever seeing a TV ad for it. The only improvement I can recommend would be the addition of grab handles for passengers.
