Stop throwing money down the drain and go buy a Chevy Equinox.

Our Chevy Equinox is a 2008 model SUV. It has been a very good car for our family. Radio/stereo works well, for singing with the kids on the way to school. It has amazing trunk space! Awesome space to go do groceries or for any trip you may have planned. Such as, a day at the beach! You can store your cooler, pool noodles, and bags. Drives good in any season for the most part. When I gave birth to my daughter in February we got to come home on a very cold and snowy day and our SUV helped us get home safe with our newborn. Great air conditioner during the hot summer days. Heat works great as well for them cold winter mornings. Good interior and exterior. Has tan leather seats inside and black glossy exterior. Had it for 2 years so far and only had to change a few things. Had to fix a headlight and brake light early this year. Recently changed front brakes and back brakes. Other than that we have had our regular oil changes and our SUV has been running great. It may be a little older for all the new models out today, but I love it! I would definitely recommend it to anyone with kids! For example, a soccer mom. You can put a cooler and other necessities in the truck for a soccer game away from home. Or for long trips. This SUV is also great with gas! And will not drain your wallet. 10/10 recommendation.

Great vehicle for small family

The 08 Chevy Equinox is a decent car for not being brand new. The gas mileage is pretty good. It has power locks and windows. The dashboard says how many percent until the oil needs changed, the temperature, tire pressure for each tire, if a door is open, and much more. It has cruise control and 5 cup holders. It is a very roomy vehicle with a nice sized �trunk� that is good for trips. It has child lock on the back seat doors and the headlights are auto. I have had no major problems since I bought it a year ago. I have had to change the headlights bulbs and I had to send it to the shop once because the dashboard lights quit working, but it was an easy and cheap fix. Currently the ABS and engine light is on, so I will need to get that looked into, but it is still running good. Last week we drove from Kansas to Arizona, and back, with no issues. The vehicle has a CD player compartment, aux option, clock, and radio. It also includes options to change the bass, treble, and levels of volume from front to back and right to left speakers. The window buttons are below the gear shift in the middle, along with a windows lock option. This car is roomy for 3 kids and I can get in to buckle each of them comfortably. Overall, great family car!

I love my vehicle and it is very dependable. It gets me from point A to B.

My vehicle is dependable and I love driving it. Most people do not like the Equinox. I love the color and the body and shape. It gets good gas mileage and gets me from point A to point B. I also have a spare tire. I keep the oil changed and tires rotated. My car is the most precious thing to me and I wouldn't sell it if it came to the last thing I had to do in order to get money. I am very grateful to have my car. My car is bought and paid for so therefore I am most grateful for not having a car note. I don't really have the funds to make payments anyway so it works out for the better. My car is very spacious. There's room for the car seat and about 5 to 7 passengers. My car is good for road trips I have only taken two and the year that I have had my vehicle. And I have not had any problems with my vacations with my car breaking down or anything of that nature.
