You'll Like The 2010 Chevrolet Equinox If...

If the newfound refinement, sharp styling or quiet and roomy interior don't grab you, perhaps the four-cylinder's 32-mpg highway fuel economy rating will.

It drives as well as it looks. I feel safe in it and I am proud to drive it everywhere. It's a great car for singles or families.

I purchased my vehicle after having a sedan that gave me a lot of trouble. I was so excited to get the care I actually wanted. I searched online about Chevrolet and the reviews on Equinoxes were really good. It was important to me to drive a vehicle I felt was going to be safe and dependable since I had a baby at the time. Now my family loves the car. It's great the tinted windows for my daughter who often falls asleep on long drives. Its comfy because I am almost 6 feet tall and roomy for passengers. I have gotten some work and recalls fixed. My seatbelt recalls needs to be addressed but other than some new tires and other normal maintenance I have been very pleased.

Engines in these vehicles are junk. Test everything before buying.

My vehicle is great except for the issue of the motor. When we bought it the timing chain went out. Found out after paying to get it fixed that the car was known for that and that there was a recommended recall, but was not required and was only fixed if under certain amount of miles. My car would also randomly shut itself off. I would step on break and it would just die. Checked in with that and it again was a recall for a fuel pump but only if under so many miles. My car could kill me by turning itself off and gm would do nothing about it. Finally got so bad that we just had to put a whole new engine in it. Have not had any issues since new engine was put in.

Review of the Chevy Equinox.

Problems:. 1) sensors are constantly telling me the tires are low, even when they're not. 2) there are no vents in the back seat for air conditioning or heat. 3) for tall people, there is not a lot of leg room, especially if you are the driver. 4) there are not any cup holders in the back of the car, if you have to have the middle seat occupied. Perks: 1) it has Bluetooth technology, so you can talk handsfree on the phone. 2) there is a USB port so that you can play music from a USB or plug your phone in and play music from there. 3) you can remotely start the car. 4) there is a good amount of room in the back of the car.
