2010 Chevrolet Equinox LT1 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl 6A)


Review

We have a loaded LT1 with the 6cyl engine and love it. Wanted AWD (snow), good mpg, room for cargo and for a baby seat. Drove Hyundais, Subarus & the 4cyl 'Nox to compare. We live in CO and the 4cyl just didn't have the guts at 6k feet. Maybe at sea level but not here. Closest rival was the new Outback (very close call). After 5 mos, hwy mpg runs mid/hi 20's at 70 mph and avg 21 mpg overall. Very smooth ride at all speeds, nimble and surprisingly quiet (except when sunroof is open). Great traction in light snow/slush/rain - no blizzards yet! Excellent value for the money.


Best Features

Driver ergonomics are great - seats are very comfortable; exc rear seat and cargo room thanks to the sliding rear seat; XM radio and ipod interface; 6 cyl engine a must at altitude


Worst Features

Minor quibbles. Steering wheel audio controls only go through favorites. Blind spots on rear quarters could be an issue. Open sunroof can be noisy at hwy speed. Transmission can hunt gears until you learn how it shifts.

2010 Chevrolet Equinox LT1 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 6A)


Review

This is the best "Small" SUV on the road. Forget the RAV 4 (dated), CR-V (unsightly), Ford Explorer (even more dated). Best value for the $. Engine/transition are excellent. Seats are very comfortable. Excellent technology included. Interior fit and finish is excellent and features quality material. I am fully impressed. There is a reason GM can't keep these in stock and is adding capacity to keep up with demand. Also can't believe editors rated only 7.5- did they rate the 2009 Equinox instead?


Best Features

Styling, interior layout. New audio system and controls are excellent. Great safety features. Feel even more safe with Onstar- no one in class has similar features. Fuel economy easily meets/sometimes exceeds 32MPG on the highway.


Worst Features

Build more! Hard to find

2010 Chevrolet Equinox LT1 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 6A)


Review

Picked up the car on 3/17. Have over 600 miles on it. Getting over 28mpg. Great looks interior and exterior. XM and Onstar are great features. Second row seats move for more storage. For a SUV with 4 cylinders, this car has great get up and go! Very quiet and smooth ride. Front bucket seats are very comfortable.


Best Features

Onstar and Siruis/XM are great features. Dash lay out is very intuitive. Comfort and style are great. Bluetooth is easy to use. Second row seats easy to maneuver. Storage is great, cupholders well placed. Tilt/telescoping wheel is easy to use. Plenty of legroom front and rear. This is a GREAT car!


Worst Features

More color options for interior. Auto window controls placed better position. Auto UP on windows would be nice. Include Directions and Connections plan with one year subscription instead of Safe & Sound plan for Onstar. Include first year maintenance, ie oil changes. Have more wheel styles.

2010 Chevrolet Equinox LT1 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl 6A)


Review

I waited until the newness wore off to write a review. First the performance of the 2.4 is a pleasant surprise. After driving V8's for years, I was apprehensive. I just returned from a 3547 mi. trip to Az. and back to Wa. Highway speeds from 60 to 75 were maintained and at elevations from sea level to 7000 ft. Mileage for the trip was 26 mpg actual, about 1.2 mpg below indicated. I have no question that the 29 mpg could be achieved (or exceeded) at 65 mph max. and no mountain driving. I don't have that discipline. The Equinox is extremely quiet at highway speeds. On rubberized asphalt there is no road noise either. Seating is very comfortable (my bad back is appreciative). Good Ride!


Best Features

Quiet ride, steering wheel mounted audio controls, backup camera, power drivers seat, XM radio, On Star (phone), drivers seat comfort.


Worst Features

height adjustable front passenger seat (manual or power), more sealing on front doors to keep dirt and water from accumulating on the inside bottom of the doors, 12 volt outlet in the storage bin on top of the dash (gps mounts perfectly there), seek button on the steering wheel, longer seat bottoms.

2010 Chevrolet Equinox LTZ 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 6A)


Review

Very nice, smooth riding crossover. 20 mpg average with the 264 HP V-6 and tow package. We needed to tow a 17 ft. boat and this LTZ was equipped for towing but also had GPS NAV, leather, etc...We actually didn't have to spend too much for all the extras compared to Cadillac SRX and Lexus RX 350.


Best Features

Easy entry and egress for 6'2" guy. Perfect for goldilocks: not too big, not too small. Very quiet ride - better than my wife's Mercedes!


Worst Features

Garage opener is missing - not even an option!- on the top of the line LTZ! Owner's manual has a heavy Canadian bias (everything is metric) More cubbies and storage would be appreciated.
