In December of 2009 I bought my wife an '08 Trailblazer.
It was awesome.
It was perfect for vacations (we go camping alot in the Adirondacks) it could pull a boat, and was a beast in the snow.
In March of 2011, my wife would not stop complaining about gas mileage of the Trailblazer, thus we traded it in for a 2011 Equinox.
Interior and exterior quality are amazing. No more typical boring bulk plastic dash and doors.
Chevy is now on par with the imports.
XM Radio, rearview mirror camera, adjustable, rear seat, Mocha Steel paint is sweet.
MPG are extremely over exaggerated by Chevy.
4 banger is to weak for the weight of the vehicle.
Engine randomly shuts off at red lights.
Roof Rack did not come with side rails. Lack of cargo space.
Overall, the 2011 Equinox is a nice little SUV.
Not really suitable if you're used to the capabilities of a Trailblazer/Explorer/Grand Cherokee.
MPG will dissappoint.
