bought a 2021 Equinox and I must say I am impressed. I thought a 4 cylinder turbo would lack the power BUT I WAS WRONG. Bought the LS with cov. package and it is JUST what we need in a vehicle. LOTS of room, great appearance, handles like a sports car at a price that IMPRESSED me!.

I rented a 2021 Equinox for a week. Was pleasantly surprized it did everything well. The 4 cyl engine had me fooled it was a V6 until I opened the hood - its got V6 levels of quietness & smoothness. The ride was as smooth & quiet as a Malibu or Camry - much smoother & quieter than several Toyota Rav4's I have rented. The transmission was silky smooth (unlike the jerky Rav4). The vehicle tracked straight on the highway. The AC was cold. Cannot think of any faults other than the seat bottom could use more padding and the fuel economy is 4 MPG worse than the Rav4

Happy with renting 2021 Equinox AWD LT for 3 days

I had to disagree with the Edmunds review for the 2022 Equinox. The cargo space was satisfactory for it size. The cabin interior design was not "lackluster". Perhaps the reviewers drive too many luxury cars. I did not think the turbocharged 1.5L engine was "sluggish". The performance compared well with my 2018 Mazda CX5 with the n/a 2.5L motor which was in the paint shop for minor work. I drove the Equinox on the streets and on the freeway, and the standard engine was lively enough for me. I did sense some road vibration at 65 mph and faster, but the rental car already had 41,500 miles. Maybe realignment was needed, or it's an all wheel drive thing.

Wind noise

I bought a 2021 Chevy Equinox LT and after bringing it home and driving at a higher speed than the test drive I noticed an annoying wind noise coming from the driver and passenger side. I thought the windows were not rolled up all the way and hit the button and windows were up as far as they would go. Noise still there. Took it back to the dealer and they checked door alignment and adjusted it as per specs. Noise is still there. They said it was coming from the rearview mirrors and nothing they could do about that. Is anyone else having this problem and what can be done about it.

Weird front end issue

I’m writhing this review hoping someone with the same issue isn’t stressing/ struggling like me . My brand new equinox with under 900 miles on it will randomly wobbling / shake in the front end while driving ! After a few seconds it goes back to being a prefect normal smooth ride . The Dealership and GM have no idea what’s going on with it and are finally trying to diagnose it again ! I really wanted to love this car but I feel like it’s a major safety issue .
