2009 Chevrolet Equinox LS 4dr SUV AWD (3.4L 6cyl 5A)


Although it has a lot of good features it is very unreliable since you must drive it long distances to keep the battery charged or leave it running if you are making a lot of short stops. If it sits more than 2 days you have a dead battery. The dealer can not seem to find the problem. The console is awkward to use where there are two people in the car. The defrosters and most vents come through outside air and across the engine. The air bounces off the window and into your eyes and bringing the toxins from the engine with it and stinging eyes and causing congestion. My small pickup has a better turning radius. I will take a lose trading it in for something other than a Chevrolet.

Best Features

On star and the automatic lights are the only features I like.

Worst Features

Put a battery in that can handle all the electronics and computers. Make outside air an option not a default. Change the console so you have more room for cups etc.
