"Bought the 2008 used in 2011 with 50,000 miles. Was happy at first; I liked the size and drivability of it. Aesthetically it was nice. Within the first year, had to take to dealership for multiple minor issues (blinker switch, door locks, air conditioner). About 18 months later, had to take in again for remaining door locks not previously fixed, stabilitrak light, brake system light, traction control light, and airbag light. Over $1000 in repairs! 4 months later, same issues minus door locks. 4 weeks later, drove over railroad tracks while slowing, brake pedal started shaking and had to push all the way down to stop. Another problem! I've had my fill of issues, get rid of it!"

"This is a great car for the value. I love how the back seat can slide back and forth. I have some pretty tall friends and myself. It makes the back so comfortable. Also, the "shelf" in the back is great for tail gaiting. The only real complaint that I have is that the center console is very lacking, VERY. I have still yet to find a good use for it. It just seems like dead space to me and no thought out well. Over all, I love the car. I would recommend it."

"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."
