Vehicle2011 Chevrolet Equinox LS 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 6A)
ReviewI should have listened to Car and Driver Magazine.
The article talked about the Equinox being "faster" for Zero to 60 mph, but the Kia Sorento rides better.
Well, thinking like a "man", I chose the Equinox because guys like speed.
I did a test drive and did not notice anything odd.
But, I later found out that it was because all of the roads around the dealership are smooth!
You cannot tell how a car really handles until you take it off the lot.
I have only owned my vehicle for 2 months, but every single day, I feel EVERY crack and bump in the road.
I complained to the dealer and they stated that it was normal. The car looks good buy rides horribly. The suspension is horrible.
Best FeaturesI love the exterior; it looks "mean". I love the interior; it's so spacious. My 6'7 friend can comfortably in the back seat, even with the front seat pushed back.
Worst FeaturesBetter suspension.

I purchase a 2011 Sorento March 2010 as well after looking at the Equinox... Only reason I chose the sorento was I received a better deal.. but I regret it because the Sorento ride is the worst suv ride ever.. Many rattles inside the car... I am not sure I would choose the Sorento again.Report it

I have a 2011 Sorento that I bought in March 2010 and the ride is HORRIBLE. My whole car shakes when you go over a bump. My back seat shakes so bad you hear the ice hitting the side of a cup in the drink holder. I am not sure what Sorento Car and Driver drove but my Sorento SUCKS in the ride department.Report it
