2006 Chevrolet Equinox LT 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 5A)


I bought this vehicle with less then ten miles. I have not had any major problems with it since driving it off the lot in December 2005. Common water leaks in the rear compartment area. Took it to the dealer for a quick fix, no luck heavy rain, check back of truck. Vehicle becomes very unstable while on the highway and amongst big vehicle. The ride feels like the vehicle is not firmly on the road. The electric steering motor gives it a different feel than with a power steering pump. Along with the unpredictable ride, light weight, makes the driver anticipate the next steering maneuver no electrical problems, 46,000 miles on original brakes. Tires changed at 45,000 miles, ac no issues.

Best Features

Interior space, leg room, powerful engine, real rims and not hub caps. Wish the OEM radio played MP3's.

Worst Features

Find solution to electric steering motor, re-evaluate the ride characteristics, make adjustments to vehicle seems to eliminate the water drainage in rear compartment area.change interior hard plastic panels for padded ones. outstanding vehicle overall. Will think about getting a 2010 or 2011 Chevy.
