2008 Chevrolet Equinox LT 4dr SUV AWD (3.4L 6cyl 5A)


We bought a 2008 Chevy Equinox LT-2 trim package after looking at the Ford Escape and Edge and the Jeep Liberty. The Equinox fits me fine and I'm 6ft 5 285lbs. And January 24, 2008 we proved its crash test ratings. I fell asleep at the wheel around noon and hit the guide rails on I-79 with cruise set at 68. Looks like I hit them head on. Took out 5 posts then rolled and slid down into grass. It totaled the car and all we got was sore necks from seatbelts. Even the airbags didn't hurt hitting us! But I think they saved our lives we had 5 in car. 3 kids in back. 5 star 4 sure!

Best Features

All wheel drive. sunroof. heated seats. Crash worthiness and OnStar (called us before we stopped moving definitely a good system)

Worst Features

A little better gas mileage. Getting 20-21 mpg mixed driving. Wife wants lights on flip down visor mirror and window controls on doors.
