Traded our 05 Equinox early as we were very disappointed with quality, problems considerng it was a forty thousad dollar vehicle. Tried the Impala. So far we're happy. Nine thousand kilometers and no problems yet. Had lot's of snow in Canada this winter, was worried about not having all wheel dive, but the car was great with traction control. Handles great,and smooth on the highway. More than enough power with 3.9 v6. Mileage a little embelished on sticker but so are all the other car makers.
Smooth handling on highway. Adequate power, trunk is huge, love it!
Better contoured front seats, like the 08 Malibu. Little nicer carpet in rear window,and who designed the coffee cup holders? And slightly larger mirrors
