Buyer beware...
By bocakin12 on


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


I fell in love with how pretty this car was immediately.
It came with all the bells and whistles, and after years of driving a straight forward Focus, I had to have it.
Even after reading the reviews on this site about how sketchy the Equinox could be, I thought "that won't be me."
Ohhhh but it is.
Two weeks after I bought it the check engine light was one, never to leave.
The airbag light quickly followed.
Followed by two brake jobs, the starter issue mentioned so many times by other users, and who knows what is next.
Cannot wait to trade it in after paid off.
Such a shame because it still is so pretty...

Best Features

Color, exterior design, heated leather seats, and all the room! Such a nice SUV, works well in the snow.

Worst Features

The brakes, the starter, the check engine light which I'm told is a gas cap problem. So many things. So frustrated.
