I recently went out and traded in my Trailblazer SS for a new Equinox and I am very impressed. The gas mileage in this thing is phenominal for an SUV (that's not a hybrid). I travel a lot for work so I have had many chances to get a feel for it and I really like it. My wife also likes it. The ride is very comfortable and is almost ideal for long trips. For those of you who like to ride high but also want good gas mileage and a comfortable ride, this is the one for you! I wish I would have got the AWD but my gas mileage would have suffered. Also 17" rims are very nice a attractive!
Gas mileage, comfortable, smooth! Ideal for long trips
Dont like the back bench seat. Needs a stereo system that you can hear! Also when the back windows are down (front ones are up) there is a horrible wind resistance making a deep roar in the car that almost pops your ear drums!
