Looked Great but total PIA

2008 Chevrolet Equinox LT 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 5A)
The Equinox drives good for the most part but has tons of issues. My biggest issue is the tire sensors are always going off. Had the sensor issue replaced 3 times under warranty in only a year. Warranty ran out and sensor now doesn't read pressure right. Also have a big issue with when you replace the brakes you have to replace the whole thing. It would be fine if it was rare but you have to do this every 40k miles approximately. At 70k you than get to replace the belts too. The headlights are impossible to replace on your own you have to find a dealer or a good mechanic to figure it out. Good thing my brake lights never went out because they look more difficult.. Wasn't worth the money!
Roomy, Decent Gas MPG for the size (23mpg), the "purse" spot between the seats, many cup holders
The Sensors, Brakes, placement of DC spots (make it difficult to charge phone and mp3 players)
