"I hesitate to trade this car, even for a new Chevrolet Equinox. The six-cylinder engine has plenty of pep, there are enough bells and whistles without many of the extra's now part of every vehicle's package that most older drivers don't want. Plenty of room for four, a squeeze for five, lots of storage space in the rear. Great highway vehicle, great around town vehicle. This is the first car AS AN ADULT that I have held this long, and I am at an age where I can buy what I want without hesitation. I may very well drive this smart and sassy SUV for another 85,000 miles!"

I love my Equinox!

"I love my sport edition Equinox! This is the first vehicle I have ever NOT wanted to trade in! I have put a lot of miles on it in a small amount of time, and it's never missed a beat!"

Looks good fun to drive to big for wife me 250 6.1

"Bought at retai with miles of 84000. Uses little oil. Gets 22 mpg. Silver seems to work great. Read some reviews. Waiting for something to break. Drive 50 or more miles a day. When cold wiper sprayer freezes. Other times work great. Enjoy driving and looks good. Had new brakes, tires, 4 months no trouble but head light. Bought 2 used cars. Looks like I owe on this car about market value. Hope it lasts. Cover over motor. Must cover a older motor that I hope holds up. 93000 now."

"I purchased a 2007 Chevy equinox from a private seller. Before purchasing, I had a chevy dealership go through the car, they said things looked great. About a month after owning the vehicle, the heat stopped working and the memo "reduced engine power" appeared on the dash. I immediately took it to a mechanic and learned that the vehicle had a blown headgassget, stripped spark plugs, the motor on the windshield wipers was going,the throttle body needed to be replaced and the left front tire speed sensor needed to be replaced. Needless to say, I am not pleased with the vehicle."

Pros: "Spacious, Hauls well, Great speakers, Good 1st car"

Cons: "No Aux plugin, Charger Plugin is in an awkwar spot"

"It was my mom's car, she payed it off and then wrecked it. After my dad fixed the front end and replaced the headlights this beauty was mine. The gas mileage isn't all too bad for a SUV, but as a part time worker/college student of course I'm going to wish it was better. I wish it had an AUX plugin - but I just dealt with that by using an FM transmitter. After 100,00 miles the CD ejector stopped working, and the placement of the front car lighter/charger port thing is a bit awkward. It doesn't feel like I'm driving something to big like a truck, but I do enjoy sitting up a bit higher. The car is easy for my 5'11 long legged self to get in and out of. It's easy to maneuver and is very spacious. I sleep in it during music festivals and It's Bueno so far. I was able to haul a bale of hay and Steer food in the trunk/backseat very well, also my goat made an hour long car trip in the trunk. So you can pretty much carry whatever."
