2010 Chevrolet Equinox LS 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 6A)


Review

If you are thinking about buying this car, don't.
32,700 miles I bought this used.
Worst mistake of my life buying this car.
I wish I could trade it for another.
Not happy at all.
The dash board vibrates and rattles.
I have had this in for repair at the Chevy
dealer since I first bought this car.
I had a 1960 Chevy Impala and a
1976 Chevy Special and was happy with them for many years.
Buyer beware...do not buy 2010 Chevrolet Equinox or
you will be sorry.
I wish I had read these reviews before
I purchased this horrible car.
You feel cheap in this car.
You hear the road noise...horrible.
Buying this car makes me feel like a complete idiot.


Best Features

Looks nice on the outside.


Worst Features

Buy a different car. This 2010 Chevy Equinox is a loser.

2010 Chevrolet Equinox LT1 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl 6A)


Review

My problems started at 39,000 miles, the engine would lose power and made an banging sound, I was told it was a misfire.
40,000 miles, replaced mass air flow sensor.
46,000 miles timing chain and tensioner was replaced.
51,600 miles; timing chain and all tensioners, actuators were replaced.
Now at 56,700 miles it is going back to the service department again and it is making the same noises as before.
I have owned only GM products my whole life and now this is going to be the Last!

2010 Chevrolet Equinox LS 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 6A)


Review

Purchased 2010 equinox with 28,000 miles.
Been in the shop 5 times already.
Display panel and entire dashboard blew out, muffler is rusting because of designed drain hole on the side, very poor acceleration, no cabin air filter, fumes enter car even when recirculated air is on, no rear vents, no insulation on sun roof slider, car is always hot inside, chrome on dash creates glare directed right at the driver, making for unsafe driving condition.
Gas milage is not what is advertised.


Worst Features

Start all over, this car is awful

2010 Chevrolet Equinox LT1 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl 6A)


Review

My 2010 Equinox has been so much trouble. I drive for a living and need a reliable vehicle. My oil began disappearing at around 38,000 miles. I took it to the dealership and was told that it is my job to check the oil at every fill up. They put dye in and had me bring it back. They had my vehicle for 16days and changed valves then gave it back to me saying it was repaired. I drove it the next day and while sitting in traffic the car started shaking and the engine sounded like it wanted to stall. When i called the dealership to tell them i was told a bulletin came out for the engine stating that the engine should be changed.


Best Features

The Equinox is a good looking vehicle and is comfortable to drive.


Worst Features

Be up front and honest. I was told my engine trouble was not common only to find out it is a very common problem and they knew it all along. If you are going to inconvenience people with you coverups the least you can do is compensate them for the trouble. 2 yrs of free oil changes hardly fits the bill.

2010 Chevrolet Equinox LTZ 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 6A)


Review

After owning a '10 LTZ for 8 months we decided to trade it in.
The car is very attractive and had tons of nice features but the quality is not there.
The engine is SO LOUD and extremely underpowered.
The gas mileage is no where near what is advertised, average around 21 city and only got 25 once on a 600 mile trip all highway.
The engine is just too small for a SUV this size.
We had to bring it in twice, once for a grinding sound at startup and once for unreliable startup followed by gas odor in the cabin, neither was able to be fixed.
Having these issues at 30K miles is scary and did not give me confidence in this vehicle for the long term.


Best Features

LTZ Package...premium Pioneer sound, sunroof, power liftgate, rear sliding bench seat, leather, seat memory


Worst Features

Gas mileage, underpowered 4 cylinder, extremely loud engine noise, ignition issues
