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


Drove all the way to White Plaines, NY to get the Equinox LTZ in Blue I wanted.
4 cyl (plenty of power), 2WD for maximum mileage.
Drove to WI and back to FL on 4,000 mile trip and averaged 32.2 mpg.
Smooth, reliable, roomy, quiet, efficient, fun to drive vehicle.
Have owned over 35 vehicles to inlcude Corvette, Lexus, and Toyota and love this SUV.
I stole it from my wife this morning just to get the chance to drive it.
Had a noisy tick in the engine audible when outside of the vehicle, GM did the $3,000 repair for NC and provided rental and I have
49K miles on it.
Runs quiet as a mouse.
Great Car, Great Service, Great vaule.

Engine went south at 60k miles. Two rebuilds. Oil burner. Mileage to 12mpg
Traded for Chevy Trax another GM disaster. Car died and had to be towed 19 times. Never fixed. A nightmare.
Finally after 5 months of pain and only 5600 miles, convinced GM to buy back the 2015 Chevy Trax under the lemon law.
Good riddens GM. Done.

Will never buy a GM Product again.
