I use the Equinox for work and drive it in all conditions like rain, snow and total darkness. Like others have said, acceleration is adequate and MPG is so-so.
The exterior look is handsome, if somewhat generic and reliability has been outstanding.
The only real beef I have is a personal taste issue and it has to do with interior color choices. My Chevy has a black interior with a weird gray fabric on the seats and backrest all set off with red stitching.
Really? Someone looked at this design and decided middle America would go crazy over this tonal mishmash?
I think many sales have been lost due to this corporate decision as it appears to not be very stain resistant.
Style- clean cut, if generic
Utility- does everything I ask it to.
Comfort- fits my 6'4" body very well.
Very reliable- not an issue in 25,000 miles
I have a base model for work, the fancier levels must be quite comfy
less chaotic interior color choices
One more power outlet up front
MPG just Ok
lock/unlock mechanism confusing- it's in the central panel, boomerag-shaped and not intuitive.
