Things To Consider
By suv4years on
Vehicle2011 Chevrolet Equinox LT1 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 6A)
ReviewI have owned three Trailblazers and loved them. The Traverse was too big for me and has low mpg. I bought the Equinox last week because of its size and mpg ratings. On the first tank of gas around town I got 26 mpg according to my math, 25.2 according to the car computer. This will improve after about 1500 miles.
Best FeaturesI love the four cylinder engine and am glad I did not opt for a six. I like the 5 yr 100000 mile drive train warranty. The car handles really well. My only option is the Driver Convenience Package and I like that. I like the bluetooth connection to my cellphone so I can use it hands free.
Worst FeaturesThe power outlets shut off when the car is turned off. I liked being able to charge my phone on my trailblazer when it was not running and can't do that anymore. The seats should be more comfortable; wider, flatter. I am only 5'10" and 175 pounds. The seat should be flatter and wider and not slope down in the back. I bought the roof rack cross rails and they are very noisy so I took them off. There are visual blind spots that I believe will cause accidents for some. The back-up camera is not much more than a curiosity. You will still turn around to look where you are backing up.
