2008 Chevrolet Equinox LTZ 4dr SUV AWD (3.4L 6cyl 5A)
With gas prices were soaring, my husband and I no longer wanted to keep a truck and we traded in his 1997 Silverado for the Equinox. We wanted a small SUV with AWD for winter driving. It handles well in bad weather; rides comfortably, but it hesitates when trying to excellerate on the highway. I didn't like the window controls on the console at first, but I got use to it. Gas mileage was great on a trip to Ocean City MD. We got about 29 mpg. My husband was excited about that. There is not a lot of room in the front. The cup holders are cheap and awkward. Despite a few negatives, we both like our Equinox. Unfortunately, my husband still misses his truck, even though he likes our new SUV.
Roomy backseat, OnStar, comfortable ride, fun to drive
Better cup holder design, better look for the cheap doors, put window controls back on the doors and more storage in console.
