2011 Chevrolet Equinox LT2 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl 6A)
Have owned 2011 LT2 Equinox for about a year and a half.
Bought it new.
The Good - Nice looking and drives pretty well.
Comfortable for passengers.
Good options like heated seats, power everything including automatic opening tailgate.
The Bad - Does not achieve expected mileage.
We consistently average a little over 19 mpg in mixed driving conditions.
Only about 24 mpg highway.
Drivers seat uncomfortable... I have to put a rolled up towel in the bottom back to keep from getting back pains.
The Ugly - It's a dog driving in the mountains or even getting up to highway speeds.
The automatic transmission also seems a bit rough when accelerating hard.
Handling (with exception of acceleration).
Improved drivers seats (that don't feel like you're sitting in an acute angle canyon).
I would have purchased the 6cyl model if I had a do-over for more power.
The 4cyl model does not achieve expected gas mileage anyway.
