"I've never owned anything but GM products. This SUV had the normal GM issues (brakes, i.e.) but the turning range was horrible. The air noises from bad seals were annoying. The cooling and heating had problems with in the 75,000 miles. The dash board over heated the second time we tried to play a cd. The head lights fogged up from condensation. But the worst part was the road noise and the poor representation from the GM Service Departments we took the vehicle into for repairs."

Great Car, very satisfied

"I purchased this equinox 2006, back in 2008. I did my homework and it seemed this was the only year to previous ones that did not have a recall on it for something going wrong. I purchased it while residing in kansas and now moved to new york, it took me across 8 states with very good gas mileage and no issues what so ever. Its a good relaible car."

"Roomy back seats and leg room. Inside shows more wear than my previous cars. Trouble with blind spot, but this was my 1st SUV. Good chance that I will buy another Equinox."

"I brought an '08 Equinox LS in late december so from then until now it has been driven only 5.5 years. I have put 352,000 km on it. I drive 150+/day average. Fuel is 8.7l/100 km (about 26MPG). not one major repair. was out of town and needed an oil change, the mechanic was floored when I gave the mileage. runs like a top. handles like a dream, confortable and quiet.Tons of space and tows great. recommend following the maintenance schedule (as with any car) and you will not be dissapointed."
