2009 Chevrolet Equinox LS 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 5A)


Review

This car is definitely a good buy for me. I like to have a little space without having to shell out more money for a truck. It has been really reliable for me throughout the first year even though I do routine maintenance.

2009 Chevrolet Equinox LS 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Stabilitrak Off/Traction Control Off/Service Stabilitrak light coming on. Can not find an issue in the vehicle even after having it taken in 3 times. Apparently this warning means about 1,000 different things could be wrong with the vehicle. I actually made it 21 miles home from leaving the service department this time before it came on. Please, please do your research on this. There are hundreds of complaints on the issue and evidently GM does nothing about it because it is a continuing issue!!

2009 Chevrolet Equinox LS 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Have owned since new for 18 months; mileage is good on highway; general comfort is as good as any in price/vehicle type category. @ complaints: 1. Road noise on highway is higher than expected. 2. The lack of a dash mounted rear hatch release control is annoying. It's a very roomy and functional SUV in it's class.


Best Features

Dash layout is very user friendly. Comfortable seating. Cargo capacity with fold down rear seats. All pluses for me.


Worst Features

Dash mounted electric rear hatch release would be convenient. better noise proofing as too much road noise comes from wheels at highway speeds. Allow ability to buy without satellite radio allow to expire, XM will refer your subscription to collection agency to harass for renewal. SCUM!

2009 Chevrolet Equinox LS 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Had been looking at new equinox but decided to save some money and go used. The biggest worry was the Stablelizer light but found it only came on when the bumps on the highway were terrible. Drives great, acceleration great. The gas mileage is fine. Didn't buy it for that. Bought a cup holder that sits higher and works great. The controls in the center are too low and hard to see while driving so I don't mess with them unless I am off the road. I can deal with it for the price I got!!

2009 Chevrolet Equinox LS 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I found this SUV to be a good alternative to my 2003 Lexus RX 300. It has good room and handles well. It seems to understeer a little but no problems. It's functional even though ite interior quality is a little inferior. Splash guard below door extends out too far and interferes when exiting.


Best Features

Good head room, drivers seat can be raised. On Star is nice but costly renewal.


Worst Features

Storage space should be flat when rear seats are down. Fuel filler should be on drivers side. Cup holders are poorly located. Wasted console design.
