Pros

If you need power and room, the Equinox offers the most passenger and cargo space in its class, as well as the most powerful standard engine in the entire compact SUV category. The muscular good looks, comfy seats and long list of optional features are just icing on the cake.

Cons

If you're enthusiastic about the driving experience, the lack of a manual shifter and the numb electric power steering may not appeal to you. And the Equinox's well laid-out interior begs for more in the way of color and contrast.

What's New For 2007

Standard safety features include the StabiliTrak stability control system, four-wheel disc brakes and a tire-pressure monitoring system. A revised instrument panel includes a new instrument cluster with a 20-setting Driver Information Center, and the Equinox's rear seat receives a folding armrest with built-in cup holders.

Used 2007 Chevrolet Equinox Expert Review

Amid GM's imposing SUV and pickup truck fleet is a vehicle massive not so much in size, but in importance. Honda, Toyota and Ford have tended to dominate the compact SUV market, and Chevrolet needs to make a big splash. With the Equinox, Chevrolet has a major player, a vehicle larger and more refined than the aging Ford Escape and offering a V6 engine, an important feature not found on the Honda CR-V. Available in front or all-wheel drive, with a wide and roomy interior and loaded with standard and optional features demanded by today's modern mobile family, the Equinox is one of Chevrolet's best offerings.

Driving the Used 2007 Chevrolet Equinox

Put a heavy foot on the pedal and the Equinox takes it as a command, not a suggestion. While pulling away from a stop or negotiating slower traffic on a two-lane road, the 3.4-liter V6 always delivers plenty of power. The maxi mini-SUV also corners reasonably well, while remaining comfortable and quiet on the highway. The glaring weak spot from behind the steering wheel for aggressive drivers is the steering itself. The electric power steering system offers little feedback and an unnatural feel, while a 40-foot turning diameter can make the Equinox seem like a full-size SUV in just about any parking lot.

Favorite Features

Sliding Rear Seat
Slide it forward for more room in the cargo area. Then slide it back for more rear-seat legroom than even the biggest SUVs.

Multi-Level Cargo Area
A movable rear shelf allows for two levels of cargo or, for tailgate parties, two levels of chips, dips and dogs.

Used 2007 Chevrolet Equinox Interior

The increased length differentiating the Equinox from the outside also helps set the not-so-compact SUV apart inside. Generous headroom and legroom complement a clever sliding rear seat to maximize passenger or cargo space. The empty space is the high point in an interior marked by ill-fitting plastic, ho-hum cloth upholstery and a general lack of sophistication.

Used 2007 Chevrolet Equinox Exterior

In compact SUV terms, the Chevy Equinox is enormous. Its wheelbase is a full 10- inches longer than a Honda CR-V's and just a half-inch shorter than Chevy's own TrailBlazer mid-size SUV. Overall length falls an inch shy of the mid-size Ford Explorer. The Equinox is unmistakable as a Chevy with big, gold Chevrolet bowtie badges front and rear, plus angular styling that immediately evokes the automaker's Silverado and Avalanche pickups.

Used 2007 Chevrolet Equinox Standard Features

The Equinox LS has air conditioning, AM/FM/CD stereo, power door locks/windows/mirrors, remote keyless entry, height-adjustable driver's seat, fold-flat front passenger seat, sliding/split-folding rear seat and a multi-tier cargo storage system. Standard safety features include dual-stage front airbags, StabiliTrak, four-wheel disc brakes and a tire pressure monitor.

Used 2007 Chevrolet Equinox Options

Popular Equinox options include leather seating, heated front seats, six-way power driver's seat, AM/FM/6CD/MP3 audio system, steering wheel-mounted audio controls, power moonroof, 17-inch wheels, OnStar, DVD navigation, remote start, electrochromic rearview mirror, head-curtain airbags, traction control and anti-lock brakes (ABS).

Used 2007 Chevrolet Equinox Engine

Yes, the 3.4-liter pushrod engine is an old design, but it works well. The nearly vibration-free Equinox runs smoothly without protest and is jackrabbit quick when it comes to crossing crowded intersections. Passing at high speed is another matter as the engine seems to lose some of its kick past the 70-mile per hour mark. One of the nicest features of this engine is it won't bankrupt you at the gas pump.

3.4-liter V6
185 horsepower @ 5200 rpm
210 lb.-ft. of torque @ 3800 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 19/26 (FWD), 19/25 (AWD)

How Much Does the Used 2007 Chevrolet Equinox Cost?

The Chevrolet Equinox LS has a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $22,465, while the LT model has an MSRP of $23,265. All-wheel drive adds another $1,500 to the price. Before you begin comparison shopping, be sure to check the Fair Purchase Price which shows what others in your area are paying for their vehicles. As for resale, Kelley Blue Book projects the Equinox to retain an average resale value, on par with the Ford Escape and Mitsubishi Outlander, but well below the Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4 and Subaru Forester.

"Very Reliable Tall SUV"

Reliable
Back seat should fold flat front seat fold forward
We bought the Equinox when GM was struggling. Many experts thought the company would go under. So 9 years ago we paid about 18K for an LT with sunroof and nice wheels. It has been a v-e-r-y reliable car! Mostly it has shuttled back and forth to work, about 5 miles each way. It has made lots of Home Depot runs...plenty of space (although I do not know why more SUV designers do not allow the front right seat to fold forward, ala Pontiac Vibe or Toyota Matrix). It has made a few family vacations...up to 800 miles a day is no problem. Anyway, this car has not left us stranded even once. All we have done is regular oil changes. Brakes once, I think. Tires of course. About 70,000 miles we were getting check engine warnings and some power loss...e.g., not eager throttle response. I guessed this might be an EGR valve...easily replaced. But that wasnt it. I feared a transmission failure, but that wasnt it. What the car needed was a tune-up! New plugs and wires. We also replaced every fluid in the car at this point. I am now contemplating whether it makes sense to replace front shocks. Not really needed yet, but the car is not as supple as it once was and how long can parts like that last anyway? So anyway...this has been a good car and even in its darkest hours GM was making them. Apart from reliability, what else? Well, it sits very high. It is relatively quiet. Not a sports car for handling, but OK. It would be nice if the back seat folded completely flat. Instead, theres a shelf between the seatback level and cargo floor, which means you cannot sleep comfortably in the back without adding some padding. Economy: typically 17 mpg in town and 26 on the freeway.Read less

"Love my 2008 Chevy Equinox"

Price, reliability, low maintenance
turning ratio could be better
This has been an awesome car. The only thing I have done is have regular oil change, put on 2 sets of tires, one at about 60,000 miles and the other at 110,000 miles. I had a tune up about 65,000 and another at 110,000. Other then that nothing needed repairing. The car is reliable, comfortable, awesome leg room in the back seats. The paint is like new, car is garaged. The front doors require manual key to open, as the key fob has failed, but still works for the back seat doors and wayback. Somewhat annoying but not worth repairing. I love this car and worry everyday someone will crash into me, and I will have to buy a new car.Read less
