"I was so excited to get a SUV; I believed it fit me well. When compared to other small trucks in its class the Equinox seemed to come out higher. Did you know the Equinox has 2 fuel pumps and no fuel filter?? Did you know if you popped the hood, you will not easily recognize the battery?? The Equinox is a cute starter type SUV, but not as good as I hoped it would be. The gas mileage is ok. Things seem to clunk out quickly with the truck. My oil sensor is bad, the battery is low and now I need a new fuel pump. Beware when you buy. Have someone with you that can search the build on the car."
