Nice, but a lot of problems....

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


My car now has 76k miles on it. All of these problems started before 60k miles. Heater regulator door went out-30k miles, rear shocks-36k miles, front shocks-40k miles, starting issues since the day I bought it brand new, on fourth set of rotors and 2nd set of calipers. I have never had these kinds of brake/rotor problems with any other car I have had(Honda) and currently have(Hyundai). I change the oil every 3-5k miles and have put new tires on at 45k miles and a new battery last night.

Best Features

I love the room inside,exterior looks nice, it has plenty of power, drives nice and is very practical for my family.

Worst Features

Better customer support from GM with or without a warranty. They need to back up what they sell and own-up to their problems and get them fixed at their cost. I will not be buying a Chevy again. I don't work to spend a large sum of money on a vehicle that isn't worth what I paid for it eventhough GM acts like I do.
