Things To Consider
By suv4years on
2011 Chevrolet Equinox LT1 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 6A)
I 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.
I 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.
The 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.
