First 1000 miles
By bannon on


2012 Chevrolet Equinox LT 4dr SUV AWD w/2LT (2.4L 4cyl 6A)


Put my first 1000 miles on it, and so far no complaints.
Fuel mileage over all is 24 mpg, getting around 29 mpg on the highway and 22 mpg in the city.
I driver around 70 mph on the highway to give you an idea.
Ride is smooth and quite!
Plenty of power for this size of vehicle from a 4 cylinder engine.
Chose the Equinox over the Terrain due to the cool blue/white interior lighting, the red of the Terrain is tough to take on a long trip.
Now will see how it holds up over the years and miles.

Best Features

Blue/white interior lights, driver info center, radio/hvac controls, shifter smoothness, cargo room for such a small SUV.

Worst Features

Need turn signal lights on side mirrors, so far this is all I have run into.

Just an FYI I have a 2004 Audi TT and the gauges and radio all use red lights. The reason is to help preserve night vision as the wavelength of red light does not contract the pupil as much as other wavelengths do.
