I bought my 2011 Equinox on May 31st.
This is after 2 yrs of test drives & reading reviews.
We had it narrowed down to the Hyundai Tucson and the Equinox, we even drove them both to the same place for side by side comparison.
I just turned over 3000 miles and average 27-28 mpg combined city and hwy. I anticipate that it will keep improving as it breaks in more.
I drive 140 miles a day round trip to work and the comfort is unbelievable, rear leg room is amazing and I like being able to increase the storage in the back my simply moving the seat forward a little bit. Minor body adjust was needed in rear quarter panel after 200 mile, due to squeaking noise but all else is perfect.
Bluetooth phone feature, memory seat for 2 drivers, comfort and easy of driving and the quietness in the cabin.
It is so nice to be able to have a conversation in the car with out the road noise being so loud.
Rear vents for climate control, express up option for the 1 touch windows.
Down is great but when it is raining up is good too.
