My roomie clever Chevy equinox.

2010 Chevrolet Equinox LT w/1LT

I really enjoy driving my Chevy equinox it gets decent gas mileage and it truly is a joy to drive. I love the room it has I can carry my family and all their gear with no problem. I really like the way it handles. I enjoy the way the seat controls let you go forward and back and let you lift your seat up. I like the menu on the equinox that lets me know my air pressure in each tire. It alerts me when my oil life is getting ready to max out. It lets me know road conditions and lets me know approximately how far I can go until I must stop for gas.

I like the exterior bright blue color!

2010 Chevrolet Equinox LT w/1LT

I loved my Equinox but it started burning through oil and my engine was damaged. Even though the make, model, and year have had a recall for this reason my VIN doesn't qualify. So that upset me in regards to reliability. As far as comfort gies I LOVE the interior. It's very comfortable and has lots of room to stretch out. I also like the simple design of the interior and the pattern of the fabric. Before the issues with my engine I didn't have a lot of problems with performance. I do notice that it is a bit slower to accelerate.

2010 Chevrolet equinox car.

2010 Chevrolet Equinox LT w/1LT

Navigation system failed immediately. Couldn't be fixed. Finally replaced after third visit to the dealer. One tire sidewall had a pinhole leak after two months. Dealer tried to blame me, even though there were no scuffs or nicks indicating I had hit anything. Finally, after talking to the owner of the dealership blaming manufacturing defect, he relented and replaced the tire. Car oversteers if accelerating and immediately turn after a stop, such as when stopped at a stop sign at a corner and then make a turn at the corner.

Equinox: comfortable but worrisome

2010 Chevrolet Equinox LT w/1LT

Very comfortable and spacious vehicle, but have had multiple issues. The radio/dash screen gets 'glitchy' if it's too hot or too cold, it always sounds like something is about to break down when idling, sometimes it doesn't seem to want to shift when driving (automatic) and typically goes into pretty high RPMs when shifting 3rd/4th gear. The worst problem so far is that it consistently burns oil, so much that I usually end up putting in 2 additional quarts between oil changes.

Lemon not lemonade, beware of the year!

2010 Chevrolet Equinox LT w/1LT

When I bought my vehicle I wanted to make sure I was getting a good deal, something that was fair to the seller and myself. It turns out I bought a lemon and put as much work into it as I did the purchase price. I had the Pistons fixed, two new transmissions and various other work done. These are things that aren't done on a standard vehicle that is used to get groceries.

Comfortable, attractive, but has some internal issues

2010 Chevrolet Equinox LT w/1LT

I love the comfort of my vehicle and the space has been great. I really enjoy the hatchback and how spacious it is. I love the color and look of my vehicle, however it has had some issues internally. My husband has worked on cars and says that this specific car is very difficult to work on and gives him quite a bit of trouble. It has had its fair share of issues.

Fun and reliable family car.

2010 Chevrolet Equinox LT w/1LT

My equinox runs great, it is highly comfortable, roomy enough for family road trips and lugging children's sports gear, it is stylish and I feel good driving this car. It has 125,000 miles on it and I have never had any major mechanical issues. The body is. It showing any signs of rust yet after 9 years in a Chicago weather.

Loving the Chevy Equinox life!

2010 Chevrolet Equinox LT w/1LT

Very comfortable and easy to drive. Maneuverability, and has mileage are great assets to this vehicle. I enjoy the storage, and space. I have moved a one bedroom apartment two times in this vehicle and only needed two trips. If I could just update the technology in this car, I would be in heaven.

- Jared B

2010 Chevrolet equinox very dependable.

2010 Chevrolet Equinox LT w/1LT

The Chevrolet equinox is a very comfortable and dependable vehicle. It has won best in class awards several years running. It is a low maintenance automobile. The downside is that some of the minor maintenance is a bit of a challenge to do. That being said I still recommend the equinox.

- Alan K

Roomy and nice but some issues

2010 Chevrolet Equinox LT w/1LT

Overall, I like this vehicle. But there have been lots of recalls on this. The 4 cylinder engine is tough to have on an SUV, it can take some power to get up to speed, especially on the highway. But very comfortable nice ride. Love the trunk- spacious to fit my 95 lb German Shepherd.

- Katie G

Good American made Family SUV built for driving around town and adventures

2010 Chevrolet Equinox LT w/1LT

It's a good honest SUV. I just maintain it and keep up with scheduled maintenance. It's a good family car, I have taken it on may vacations with the family. Including camping upstate NY. It's a reliable American made SUV that I would buy again. I wish it was better on gas

- David B

Pretty, but problematic crossover.

2010 Chevrolet Equinox LT w/1LT

This was our secondary car until recently. Since I have been driving it regularly it's given me nothing but problems. The check engine light turns back on the second we get one issue resolved. It's been a lot of front end issues and very inefficient on gas.

- Nikki S

I greatly appreciate the adjustable seat height.

2010 Chevrolet Equinox LT w/1LT

All though the ride is comfortable with a comfy and roomie interior I had several problems with the vehicle after a recall was performed. I do like the adjustable height of the driver's seat. I have had problems with changing the rear windshield wiper.
