2012 Chevrolet Equinox LT 4dr SUV w/1LT (2.4L 4cyl 6A)


Externally the 2012 Equinox looks alot beefier than the old model with it's muscular looking exterior, internally the first thing that grabbed me was the large touchscreen radio, sitting down in the chair I discovered how comfortable it is, one of the most comfortable seats in any vehicle I have owned so far.

The 4 Cylinder engine chugs along nicely sipping gas relatively conservatively (no 32 MPG Highway, more like 25-30)

It's got plenty of space for passengers, the near is a bit disapointing if you plan to carry a bunch of luggage but still enough.

It does seem to take corners a tad wide and it's something to get used to especially when parking.

Best Features

-Large LCD touchscreen radio. Great for playing MP3's, just stick in a thumb drive and play as much music as your drive holds. -Backup Camera Essential when you have small children around or if you are backing out of a tight parking spot. -Comfortable seats, fully adjustable electric driver seat. -Remote start, while a trivial feature since the vehicle needs to be locked and the key still needs to be turned, it can be nice to remote start so your AC/Heat gets a head start while you aproach it.

Worst Features

The LCD screen would be ideal for a GPS navigation system but it's not available without OnStar subscription, this could easilly be standard. Standard heated seats would be nice. An option for a dual climate control system would be nice, this would take the guess work out adjusting your AC/Heat.
