Got a Lemon
By killeremtb on


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


I bought this SUV 2 years ago with 60K on it.
It now has 102K on it.
So far I have had to replace engine, $2000.
The blower Door $1254.
The Tires $600.
The brakes $100. The Battery $100.
The rear hydrolic shocks $65.00.
I do not recomend this auto.
Do an internet look up of "Equinox blows cold air" and see all the people who are having their door go out and costing them over $1000 to fix. Run from this vehicle do not walk away.

Best Features

I do like the heated seats. I also like how the back seat folds down. When it runs it runs good, the problem is it seems to be down more than up.

Worst Features

The door for heating needs to be improved and a recall needs to be down on it. It is crazy to have to pay 1200 to fix a $45 door
