This is a great family SUV. Very attractive outside, elegant, very quiet (Active noise canceling) & spacious inside(biggest rear leg room), more than adequate power. Fuel economy is better than Toyota Camry !! Bluetooth, hands free steering mounted controls, voice recognition, iPod connectivity, auto-on lights, rearview camera are just a few to mention the conveniences. Standard maximum air bags, Traction control, OnStar service are outstanding for the price the car sells for.
Ipod connectivity, Bluetooth and voice recognition, auto on lights, autodimming mirrors, rear view camera, quiet interior, beautiful interior and exterior design.
Purchased the end of January 2010. Put a little over 1000 miles on it so far. It has plenty of power for the driving I do (mostly surface streets/some freeway). Display says I'm averaging 23 mpg. I haven't done a road trip with it yet. Hoping gas mileage will improve, but even if it doesn't, I am completely satisfied with this car! It's very roomy and comfortable(the initial attraction for us)and not too high off the ground for my elderly mother-in-law to get in. Settled for black color because this vehicle is hard to find and I didn't want to wait to order one! Looks good, rides good, and I drive every chance I can get. I love this vehicle!
OnStar w/XM radio - love it. Optional blue tooth, leather steering wheel w/audio controls, remote start, and usb port for ipod. Rearview camera system is very helpful. Rear sliding and split- fold seat is great! Lots of room.
I have not taken my Equinox on any long trips, but I really like the driving feel and the comfort of the seats and interior. This vehicle seems to fit me like a nice glove. I have the four cylinder and drive it in Eco mode all the time and it has plenty of power to satisfy me. The only dislike for me is the tilt steering. I am continually trying to lower the steering when I get into the vehicle when it is already at the lowest setting available. I'm thinking about seeing if I can modify the steering so I can lower it more. I really like the Nav and infotainment system. It's a costly option, but I think it is worth the cost. I previously owned a 2009 Malibu, but like this one better.
The comfort and feel of a solid vehicle when driving down the road. The Navigation/infotainment system. I've spent hours recording my favorite cd's onto the hard drive.
Make the tilt steering to tilt lower. Incorporate garage door openers. Incorporate battery run down protection, I found out the Equinox doesn't have it after recording about 12 hours of cd's while sitting in my garage. I would like to see dual zone air/heat.
I certainly seem to think so, I LOVE this car not only does it ride like a breeze, it's extremely comfortable. The only regret with this vehicle I wish I purchased the next model up with the power-lift gate and a few more bells and whistles, maybe my next one. Other cars I looked at was Toyota rav, Honda CRV, Nissan Murano..Equinox won my heart. excellent gas mileage, beautiful interior, comfortable smooth ride.
never owned a vehicle with on-star before I will never buy another without it.
I wish the base model had come with better wipers they kind of... cheap and I have a hard time driving at- night the headlights seem to be meek at best. Interior plastic tends to scratch easy so be careful ladies with the heels!!!
2010 Chevrolet Equinox LTZ 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl 6A)
Bought the 2010 Equinox fall of 2009 ~ absolutely love this car!!! It is a perfect car for our family (very busy, 2 kids, one dog). The all-wheel drive is excellent in the snow and it is excellent on gas! The car will go 600 miles between fill-ups! Not to mention, it is beautiful! Love the XM stereo, sunroof, and lots of room for groceries, football gear and backpacks!
