2012 Suzuki Equator Sport 4dr Crew Cab 5 ft. SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I am on my second Equator. The first made it to 20,000 miles with no problems. At 20,000 the airconditioner started freaking out. It would have power surges and the fan motor would go from almost off to full power on and off continuously. Took it to the dealer multiple times, they could not fix it. We traded the truck for a 2012 Equator, it has made it to 9325 miles and is doing the exact same thing. I am at my wits end!!!

2012 Suzuki Equator RMZ-4 4dr Crew Cab 4WD 5 ft. SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

This a great truck! Although it is a Suzuki, in reality it is a Nissan Frontier but with better looks,emminaties,and standard features. The reviews of this truck are not always fair. Test drive it and you will quickly see why. Gas mileage is that of a truck. But bang for the buck it is the best. I'm glad I picked the Equator, a solid choice.


Best Features

The off-road features. Very smooth shifting transmission and powerful motor. Great exterior looks.


Worst Features

I would like it to have a better radio and speakers. They are ok however.

Review

i just bought the zuk a month ago have 1000 miles on it i agree gas milage is not that great but i am used to driving a civic. i am getting 17.5 mpg an i have the 4.0l v6 it has plenty of power you could ever ask for. got more features for less money over the nissan frontier and it looks better. i get alot of comments on how well it looks. feels like you are driving a full size truck with better fuel milage than the big v8 in those and with the big tires you have plenty of ground clearnce. interior is laid out very well everything is conviently laid out an well planed with plenty of storage. it is a nissan that looks better has better warranty and price.got to take a look if buying a new trk


Best Features

bed rack system is awsome and better than the toy. large wheels and tires make it look beafy from the factory. ac blows so cold its unreal you will hardly ever use on high u will freeze an i live in south florida. controls are smooth and feel like you are in a luxury vehicle like bmw mercades. steering is very tight had to get used to it a bit but love it very responsive. truck hauls but when throttle mashed very impressive :). price mutch better than toy for comparable features. they think them are made from gold. an looks better also. paid cash and they worked with me mutch more than toyota dealer cuz that was what i was gonna buy saved 5000 and got better warnt an features


Worst Features

all should come with fog lights standard dont like the looks of the black fillers in there have silver crew cab sport painted bumper and the black fillers look funny but easy fix ordering factory fog light kit for 250.00. or they need to just paint them to match vehicle color. other than that i really have no complaints. we all want better gas milage but it is a truck that has 261 hp

2012 Suzuki Equator Premium 4dr Extended Cab 6 ft. SB (2.5L 4cyl 5A)


Review

Estimated mileage, 17 city, 22 hwy. More like 14 city and 19 hwy. Trying to be very careful with speed and acceleration, does not help. Very unhappy with situation. 1800 miles so far, and no improvement. Would find it very hard to suggest this vehicle to a prospective buyer. My friends v-6 Toyota Tacoma gets better mileage than I do.


Best Features

Appearance is striking, I get a lot of positive comments on looks.


Worst Features

Mileage, Mileage, Mileage!!!! Gas isn't getting any cheaper, you know!
