2005 Chevrolet Equinox LS AWD 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I have used nothing but Mobil 1 Full Synthetic since the first oil change. The original spark plugs lasted 150,000 miles. This has been a maintenance only (oil, filters, brakes, tires, muffler) vehicle for the past twelve years. There is still no change in oil consumption since new and it still gets 25+ MPG.

Review

After reading all the poor reviews for this vehicle and then owning it.... I don't have any of the fuel transmission or head gasket problems other people claim. I've had this car for 6 months and put 4000 miles on it. Check engine light comes on with incorrect gas cap twist... however turned itself off now. I have no other complaithisthus far and I just love this car!

Review

This car has been a headache all around. I bought used in 2013. It has broken down on me in the road a total of 6 times. Had to replace blown head gasket at 112000 miles, and then the motor at only 151000. Had to replace ignition, air conditioner and numerous fuses. The plastic covers that are on the passenger and driver visors broke off within the first couple months of me having the car. The seats stain so easily, even getting water on them causes discoloration. Not to mention the strange location that the window controls are in. I would not recommend this car.

Review

The equinox I have has 86,000 miles, so far so good, no problems with it, just regular maintenance, oil change every 3000 miles. Mine has been well kept, garaged, hasn't been used off road, or bad weather much. Very comfortable small SUV.
