2007 Chevrolet Equinox LS 4dr SUV AWD (3.4L 6cyl 5A)
We got rid of my wife's "fun car" '05 Mustang and got the Equinox and we both actually like to drive the Equinox better. At its price point, it has to be one of the best small SUV's on the market!
AWD is really nice to have since you can pull out quickly under just about any conditions without worrying about flipping switches. Build quality is excellent, especially at this price point! Different builds let you price this reasonably (like we did) or "pimp it out". Handles like a sedan!
Turning radius is terrible. I guess this may be someone limited by the AWD, but GM really needs to tighten the turning radius. Our behemoth Yukon has a tighter turning radius than this thing! My only complaint, but at least it doesn't come up too much in normal driving.
