"This car handles terrible on snow and ice. I don't notice any better traction when the traction control takes over. Have had several near misses due to tires locking up. Really hate the way the car handles. Everthing else is just average."

"This is the first pre-owned vehicle that we have ever purchased. We have no problem with it and enjoyed its ride. Hopefully, we will be as lucky with our next one."

"I have had my 2008 Chevy Equinox SPORT for a year and a half now. A year into driving it, the ONLY problem I had was when the transmission went out around 85,000 miles. There was a recall on it, so we fortunately got all our money back! Other than that, I have had no problems with it. I haven't had to buy new tires yet either. Yes, the ride is a little noisy and bumpy, but that is what you are going to get with an '08 vehicle compared to now. One thing I will say too, is you will have to be careful when switching lanes in this vehicle because there is a blindspot on both sides that's tough to know when a car is passing. This is my first SUV and my first Chevy Equinox and I honestly don't think I could ever change away from an Equinox. I;m saving up to buy a newer one within the next year! Love my EQUINOX!!"

"After reporting the timing chain ticking at 50,000, finally got it repaired, only to have it go bad again after only 10,000 miles, and GM will not repair again, as seems to be an ongoing issue with these engines. Metal timing chains on plastic rollers is NOT a good idea. The same engine was in the Cadillac and recalled. Why are they not doing anything about this issue in the Equinox's , and Acadia's?"

"When I first bought it, the dealership neglected to inform me of some vehicular ailments such as the rotors and such. I reported them to the BBB. After I paid almost $700 to have it fixed by someone else, I can truly say that this truck runs very well and I love it!! I haven't had any trouble since I had it fixed...and it is over 10 years old. I think I did good."

"I bought the Equinox used because it was so cheap. I was in a hurry, so I really didn't choose it carefully. One thing I like to do is drive with my windows down- not a problem on the majority of vehicles. The front windows of the Equinox however stop an inch short of being fully down. So your arm is resting on the glass- not comfortable. The cup holder is under the gear shiftier. The stereo has too much base (music mode selection instead of a bass adjustment). The plastics fade in the sun. It has way too wide of a turn radius. About the only thing I'm happy with is that the engine (which is made in China)does not have a belt- it's a chain. Hope to soon trade this in for a Explorer."
