FM reception is bad. Disappointing fuel economy.
By fattylumpkin on


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


The FM radio on this vehicle is terrible.
I took it into the shop 1 week after I purchased it brand new in June 2012.
I was told that the radio fading in an out was a known issue that would be resolved with an update to the radio within a couple of months.
A couple of months went by and the dealer told me that it was not available yet.
It has now been a year!!
Very disappointing that they can not get something as simple as a radio done right.

The fuel economy for me has maxed out at 25 MPG.
That was on a 200 mile trip with the cruise control set at 62 mph for the entire trip.
Around town, I get about 22 - 24 MPG.
Is there such a thing as false advertising when it comes to this?

Best Features

The seats and ride are comfortable. It is very good for road trips.

Worst Features

Please fix the darn radio! I would like to use profanity in this section, but apparently that is not allowed.
