2007 Chevrolet Equinox LT 4dr SUV AWD (3.4L 6cyl 5A)
I bought the car when changing positions to sales from engineering. I work for a company that builds light-weight campers and I needed something that would pull up to 3500#. The Equinox does a great job and my gas mileage is very impressive. It is a great looking vehicle with somewhat futuristic looks and it compliments the unusual campers we build. Without having any trailering experience to speak of, I have successfully navigated over 10,000 miles with ease. On one of my trips I left 11:30 at night in a storm with 2" of snow already on the ground while towing a 1600# camper. The traction control was awesome even through the winding mountainous back roads of Western Pennsylvania.
Gas mileage. Up to 29.4 on highways at +70 mph. Gas mileage while towing: between 15.8 to 23.7 depending on many variables. It's a comfortable ride with predictable handling. I love the stereo too.
Add a sub-woofer with the stereo. Heated mirrors would be nice.
