2010 Chevrolet Equinox Owner Reviews & Problems
Reviews For Chevrolet Equinox
The car is 7.8 inches off the ground, so I don't recommend you go over big bumps larger than a speed bump.
The second generation Equinox was announced by GM on December 21, 2008, and debuted at the 2009 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The 2010 Equinox went on sale in June 2009. It is built on a stiffened version of the same "Theta" platform used in the previous model. The second generation Equinox was built with a pair of upgraded gasoline direct injection engines, with better fuel economy claimed by GM. Earlier 2010 models had the GM badges on the front doors, but were later deleted. Marketing of Chevrolet Equinox resumed in Mexico during late November 2009, for the 2010 model year after a year of absence. Sales of the Chevrolet Equinox to Mexico were stopped after the 2011 model year. However, in October 2015 the Equinox was reintroduced in Mexico to replace the Captiva Sport for the 2016 model year. The second generation Equinox is available standard with a 2.4-liter straight-4 engine produced in Tonawanda, New York and Spring Hill, Tennessee, with a 3.0-liter V6 engine is available as an option. Both powertrains contain six-speed automatics and optional all-wheel-drive systems, with front-wheel-drive being standard. The second generation Equinox is Chevrolet's third best-selling vehicle in North America, after the Silverado and Cruze, respectively. -Wikipedia
2010 Chevrolet Equinox lt2- reliable and beautiful.
I own a 2010 Chevrolet Equinox lt2 in the color "cardinal red metallic". While my Equinox only has a four cylinder engine, it gets the job done when it comes to speeding up on the highways. Since it has a smaller engine, it has great gas mileage for its large size. I love that feature. Being the "lt2" model, my car has some extra features that the base models may not have, like a back-up camera, hands-free calling and Bluetooth, and chrome details on the exterior of the vehicle. The chrome is on my fog lamps, door handles, lining the windows, and on the side mirrors. It gives the car a more luxury look without the higher price. The interior is black, fabric seats, which is what I would always choose, even leather is available, so I am very happy with them. They still look beautiful and brand new, even 8 years later. Performance-wise the Equinox does everything I need it to. I do not do any off-roading nor do I live in a place where the weather is extreme, so the fact that it does not have 4-wheel drive, is irrelevant to me. I have not had any serious problems with my car except for it being called in for a recall a couple years ago. Of course, the dealership got me in as soon as they could and they fixed the problem. Overall, I adore my vehicle and I would recommend it to anybody.
We have done little to no maintenance on it even though it has 128, 000 miles.
We bought this vehicle brand new. It is by far the best car we have ever owned. We've had not big problems besides replacing tires and the battery a few times. It is roomy if your traveling or need to move big items. The lumbar drivers seat is great if you have back problems. However the driver's seat is uncomfortable on long rides. The backup mirror is wonderful and helps when backing out in parking lots. The only problem is if it has rained, it is hard to get a good view. The mirrors can be turned in when going through a drive thru. It gets approximately 27 miles on the highway. The roof rack is great if you need to carry extra luggage. However, we have never needs to use it. The air conditioner works ok but I wish the car had vents in the back since passengers have complained that it is warm back there. However, I would purchase an Equinox again.
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.
The good and the bad.. equinox
I love all the room,you don't feel squished...it has a great factory radio that's a plus for me because I love to have my music loud and with some bass... seats are big and comfortable.. Now on the other hand we have had major timing chain issue with it and have been told by mechanic at dealership we bought it from that they have no idea what's wrong with it!!the car drives great when you are moving but if you aren't it putts and jumps and wants to die and sometime it does....but that issue I believe to be with the crappy dealership that refused to even work on it anymore...
Very roomy and great family car.
We had gotten the vehicle used and have had it for 4 or 5 years. Its held up fairly well. In the years we have had it its needed a new battery the computer had needed work and a door handle came loose also the windshield wiper has jammed and fuel sensor went bad and needed replaced. All in all I'd say it's not a bad running vehicle. The vehicle is very comfortable it has seat warmers up front that I love it is also very roomy. The back seat bench moves up for more room to haul things. Great back seat for kids and animals.
The seats are great because I hate leather seats.
Only problem is gas but everything else is great I love my car it takes me everywhere it's great to travel out of town on and it drives very good and its has a lot of space and its great to take to store to put groceries in my mom bought me this car a year ago after my died passed and it was a very special gift and I appreciate it a lot and happy I was able to own my own car and it works and don't have to worry about catching rides anymore and paying people.
It's comfortable and not too big. Everyone likes the way it rides when they go with me.
I have an SUV because I have kids. I love that the seat can be adjusted so I have more a little more room in the back or more for their feet. I feel very safe in this vehicle. I can fit most things that I need in the back and then some and fold the seat down if needed and I have no kids or car seats. It's a smooth ride and everyone who has driven in it has found it comfortable. I like the way it drives too. I felt comfortable in it almost immediately.
