2005 Equinox Poorly Made

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


I purchased the 05 equinox with 40,000 miles on it. It has had problems since right after i purchased it. I have had to replace the carrier barrier, heater core, AC unit, many thermostats, battery, cracked head gasket and i am sure much more. When i go to start the car half of the time it doesnt want to start and i have to keep turning it over and hit the gas for it to start, asked Chevrolet about it and was told that is just how they are nothing can be fixed. However i have read on here that it has something to do with a faulty wiring harness. The CD player will lock up and you have to take out the fuse so that it will reset its self. I would not recommend this car to anyone.

Best Features

I like the room that it has and the shelf in the back. its comfortable for long rides.

Worst Features

Everything that doesnt have to do with the looks. everything else needs fixed!
