MPG Overstated
By macysmom9 on


2012 Chevrolet Equinox LS 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 6A)


First of all, let me say that I love my Eqinox on all levels except for the MPG.
You would have to be going down hill, 45 miles per hour with your foot off of the gas pedal to get 32 MPG, as advertised.
I have owned this Equinox for 4 months.
I drive at least 80% highway miles and always go the speed limit.
I have never gotten better than 25.6 MPG, the average is 22.3 MPG.
I bought the 4 cylinder model thinking that the gas mileage would be better.
Honestly I should have kept my Tahoe.
If you are looking for a car that gets good gas mileage....look at something other than an Equinox.
I seriously think the EPA needs to evaluate this vehicle again and post the true MPG.
