My Chevy Equinox is the most smooth riding vehicle I've ever owned or drove!

2008 Chevrolet Equinox LS

My 2008 Chevrolet Equinox is amazing! It is a very comfortable smooth drive with great road performance. My Equinox is very reliable and never broke down on me in the many years I've had it. I have not yet had to purchase any parts or replace anything at all. As long as I keep my oil changed and gas in the vehicle I'm good to go! I literally trust it to go anywhere! The air conditioning is amazing and works instantly. The seats are soft and comfortable for long rides. I highly recommend this vehicle for a small family looking for a decently roomy vehicle. I wouldn't trade my vehicle for any other, I'm very satisfied!

A great SUV except for one major problem.

2008 Chevrolet Equinox LS

I drove my 08 Equinox for about a month and I loved it. Smooth ride, great features, good stereo, etc. My favorite thing about it is the heated seats, I would use these all year round if I could. But after a month of driving it started to overheat. I always kept my fluid levels good so it wasn't because it ran out of coolant. So now after about 7 months of working on it and replacing just about everything that can be replaced regarding an overheating issue, we still don't know why it keeps overheating.

Great car for adaptable people.

2008 Chevrolet Equinox LS

Controls are in very awkward places within the car that take a lot to get used to. ie. Where the window controls are and how the center console is set up. I have had problems with the body of the car not bonding with the paint which leads to a very rough looking car. The car drives great. Very smooth. Never had any problems with the car mechanically.

Remote start, heated seats, steering wheel volume controls.

2008 Chevrolet Equinox LS

Very spacious, and comfortable for hauling 3 kids in a back seat. I like best that there is not a center divider on the floor board in the rear seat, making leg room better for the kids. Reliable and pretty good on gas mileage. It is a 10 year old vehicle at this point, so maintenance is a regular part of life for us now.

- Lacy J

Great mid size SUV for anyone

2008 Chevrolet Equinox LS

Vehicle runs very well for its age and condition. It was previously involved in an accident before I owned it, but I've had few issues with performance. I have experienced some electrical issues which I believe are related to some water damage, but nothing that has significantly affected my daily use of the vehicle.

- Nicholas C

A perfectly average SUV that does its job

2008 Chevrolet Equinox LS

My car does exactly what I need it to do. It's not fancy, but it's functional, and I've had no major problems so far in the first 6 months of ownership. I did buy it used, however, and the cigarette lighter outlets do not work, unfortunately. This is inconvenient on longer road-trips when I need to charge my phone.

- Katie E

My vehicle is comfortable, easy to drive, dependable, enough room and trunk

2008 Chevrolet Equinox LS

My vehicle has a lot miles so I have do maintenance. The performance is still good and comfortable. Reliability with everything kept up is still reliable and some features such as power lock windows. Also anti lock brakes and sunroof. Seats are very comfortable and enough room too.

- Gil D

Great, reliable vehicle. Good job Chevy!

2008 Chevrolet Equinox LS

My vehicle just has regular maintenance right now. We recently needed to put in a new fuel pump, other than wear and tear, I haven't had a lot of issues with vehicle. I am in the military and my vehicle has been all over the world. It is been very reliable and comfortable for us.

- Raquel S

Chevy equinox not the car for our family.

2008 Chevrolet Equinox LS

Lots of maintenance, replaced transmission, bad lighting, blown tires, fading paint, new plugs, new tires, thought it would be more economical on mileage, 2nd Chevy we have owned and will probably be the last also, seems to be nickel and diming us to death, beyond regular care.

- Mike W

Its miles are good and it has both a charging port and aux and CD options .

2008 Chevrolet Equinox LS

Check engine light is on for over 7 issues .. The airbags have been recalled . there's multiple issues with the engine and several other recalled issues. It is a spacious car and the trunk is huge . it's usually good on gas if you don't have problems with the engine like I do

- Lacey D

2008 Chevy equinox AWD ls v6 auto.

2008 Chevrolet Equinox LS

Safe reliable. Comfortable to drive. Very easy to maintain. If service needs done parts are easily available and relatively cheaper. I have had my equinox for 4 years now and have just had to normal maintenance. Mine is AWD and I have no fear of driving in bad weather.

- Deborah T

My car is white and can fit 5 people in t

2008 Chevrolet Equinox LS

Nothing is wrong with my car. It just is old and has a lot of miles on it. I drive it everywhere I go, to and from work, to and from my parents house, to and from home. I enjoy driving and I like the size of my car because I can fit a lot into it. It's a great car

- Emily C

The DVD player is a plus, especially when road trips are involved

2008 Chevrolet Equinox LS

Runs well, could be better on gas when traveling on the highways. Overall it is a good car. The window switches are where the gear shifter is which can get confusing, but you get used to it, DVD player has ran great, haven't had any issues from that.
