2008 Chevrolet Equinox LS 4dr SUV AWD (3.4L 6cyl 5A)
We researched mid size sports utes extensively. This seemed the best combination of interior room, price, fule economy and towing capacity for our needs. Fuel economy has been a plesant suprise (23 mpg overall, 27+ highway). It tows our 2100 lb boat well. Seats are comfortable and roomy. It rides and handles well. We don't think you can beat it for the price.
Ride, roominess, comfort, towing ability. The back seat is especially roomy. OnStar seems like a good feature although we have not used it much.
The positioning of the window switches and the hand brake are a little unusual but OK when you get used to them. A six speed transmission might improve gas mileage but we really can't complain.
