Good overall value

2013 Chevrolet Equinox LT 4dr SUV w/1LT (2.4L 4cyl 6A)
I purchased this equinox after owning the same car from 2010.
Both are 4 cylinder AWD models.
I have seen some posts involving engine issues but both my 2010 (50K miles) and my 2013 (12K miles) are both great cars.
I get about 29 MPG on both combined driving and neither car is experiencing any engine issues or any other issues at all.
My wife is a very aggressive driver and her 2010 still is running original brakes and tires.
She never gets 50K on any of her vehicles so this has really impressed me about the car.
I have the oil changed by the dealer when the OLM reaches between 30-40% which is still around 6K to 7K intervals.
Just had both OLM upgrades and will post the new intervals
Handling is great.
AWD runs fantastic in snow.
HVAC with multiple fan speeds and entertainment system are great.
I also have aftermarket hitches to carry bike racks and this is great as bikes ride safely in the rear and don't mark up the rear door.
Also plenty of room in the rear for adult passengers.
So fare none.
The 2013 does have a much improved ride over the 2010.
Smoother shift points in transmission and better overall handling but both are good rides.
