Traded in a 2004 Nissan Xterra for the 2007 Equinox. The Equinox has much more interior room both in the front and rear seat and being over 6 foot tall I was surprised by the rear seat leg room. The ride is smooth and comfortable and compares favorably to my Nissan Altima. The gas mileage has been as advertised. It has so much more get up and go compared to the Xterra.
Gas mileage is great for mid-size SUV which can also tow 3500 pounds. Other SUVs, that get similiar gas mileage, could only tow 1000-2000 pounds. Exterior looks great. Ride is very comfortable.
Turning radius is a little bigger than other comparable SUVs. The PRND is not lit up on the selector lever.
