My white night was an extraordinary car named Chevrolet Equinox.

My husband purchased a 2011 Chevrolet Equinox lt a few years ago and what struck me was that it was a Chevrolet. I didn't see that coming at all but when I finally drove it I understood why. It was the smoothest ride I have ever had in a vehicle. The comfort I felt as I sat in the cushioned seat that enveloped me with ease. He bought the car for his Uber driving job that he signed up for as something to do after he retired. His riders constantly questioned the make, model and style of the car. (the seats warmed me up on those cold mornings in Kansas city). The acoustics were also in play because my husband would play jazz CD's while driving. This made the ride even smoother, and relaxing. He still owns this car and even after going over 100, 000 miles it still performs like a new car. I hope to acquire this car and get him another or just buy my own. The unfortunate down side to the car is that it burns a lot of oil, other than that it is the best car that I have driven.

Minor issues but definitely a long-term trooper.

My vehicle has has a couple of recalls, one of which required me to visit a couple of dealerships and ultimately have to call the manufacturer in order to get someone to even look at the issue. Otherwise I am mostly happy with the vehicle, with age, I am starting to see some wear in the leather console and this appears to happen with others who have the vehicle. It is reliable, roomy, the ability to move the rear seat back and forth has been a blessing in order to add additional cargo space for those just a little larger items. At 120K miles I am getting some puttering in eco mode that no one has been able to figure out but otherwise she rides great.

It is great on the ice roads with the all wheel drive.

My 2011 Chevy equinox is all wheel drive. And at First was a dream come true. Then it started having problems. Exhaust manifold had to be replaced after 1 year. Cost me over 900 dollars. Then the whole catalyst system failed. It drinks oil like no one's business. It has a faulty gas pump wich leaks gasoline into the oil. Had to have a whole engine overhaul. Thank god most of it was under special coverage warranties.it is an extremely comfortable vehicle. And mostly reliable. Especially now that all the faulty parts are fixed. And my check engine light came on not long ago. For O2 sensor. But it was just the fuses for the sensors that had blown

2011 Chevrolet Equinox review. Have enjoyed this vehicle.

Have over 140,000 miles on it and have had no problems. Very comfortable vehicle to ride in. Have made several trips over 2000 miles. Have the IT model. First set of tires lasted 89,000 miles. Still have not had to change brakes. Have leather heated seats and driver seat has all sorts of adjustments needed to make it comfortable for whoever drives it. When newer gas mileage all around would average 24 miles in town and 30 on trips. Has a four cylinder engine so does not have the best pickup but is adequate but would recommend six if buying again. Has a backup mirror in the rearview mirror which is very helpful when backing up.

- Donald S

My 2011 Equinox is amazing!

My car is great. It has not had any problems. However, I have had to replace the transmission fluid twice and my car only has 89, 000 miles on it. Then gas mileage is pretty decent—I get about 24 mpg— but I do not get as high of gas mileage as I used to. The one thing I would change about my vehicle is that it does not have Bluetooth music capability. My year has Bluetooth calling, but not Bluetooth music compatibility. Overall, I love my car and would buy another Equinox after this one, but mine is not going anywhere anytime soon.

- Angel P

I think her reliability is the most important.

My car came to me used. She now has 200k+ on her! And she still purrs like a kitten! I have never had a bit of trouble with her. She is very reliable. She seems to have a really good suspension under her cause I had a front end alignment done when I first got her about a year ago and she still goes down the road straight! She is not the luxury model but I prefer that since I like to bring my dachshunds with me. The interior is very easy to clean. She seems to have several amenities for a car of her age.

Chevy Equinox 2011- a great car for college.

I love my Equinox. The seats are very comfortable and they are easy to keep clean. They do not start to smell, either, like some cars without leather seats do. I am also pleased with the sound quality of the speaker system in the car. It is very clear and sounds great. The car is much roomier than it appears to be, making road trips much easier. I haven't had any problems with it, other than the air system failing to work. This was fixed by simply plugging the device back into the console.

- Madison M

Check the oil or you will have none in it before you know it!

I love the look & style of this car but it has major flaws. It uses oil. Like lots of oil. I have to check it every 2 weeks & normally have to add at least a quart a month. The oil has to be changed religiously every 5000 miles or a specific solenoid goes bad & has to be replaced. This part is cheap but the location is what costs in repairs. Takes about 2 hours in labor. Repairs for this vehicle are expensive. I currently need a catalytic converter that I cannot afford to fix.

- Lori H

It is very reliable and a pleasure to drive.

I love this car. It is only a 4 cylinder but, it drives extremely well and it is. Easy on gas and has plenty of power. It is a silver gray color with grey and. Black interior. It is comfortable to driver and a pleasure to take on long trips. It is very reliable and I have never had a problem with it. I think anyone who buys one will be pleasantly surprised by the handling and gas mileage and the comfort. I will buy another one once I think this one has run its course.

- Michael C

Oil consumption testing to be done.

Oil consumption is the only downfall that has been a problem. We got oil change after oil change and still ran out of oil before my next scheduled oil change. The dealership said nothing was wrong, after my husband went back and complained, the agreement to do an oil consumption test. So after five oil changed later and more talks with the dealerships, we were told they would replace parts under warranty per Chevrolet. Once that was completed it had worked just fine.

- Melissa L

It had an oil/engine recall problem.

My Equinox had a recall on it for the engine. It did not pass the tests so a around 40, 000 miles we had to have the engine replaced. Other than normal wear and tear on the car it has been very reliable. Now there are around 120, 000 miles and I think there is a transmission problem brewing. The stabile track is having problems and my abs and all wheel drive has been shutting off automatically and I don't know why. We have not had a chance yet to have it serviced.

- Melissa V

For better or worse, what you see is what you get: No surprises.

I like that it's pretty basic. It's not over complicated, it's exterior isn't flashy. It's just large enough. I bought it used a few years ago but it's been reliable since then and hasn't needed any major repairs. The only thing that keeps me from being completely happy is I preferred my first car, a Subaru Forester, but couldn't find another at a good price in my area. I bought the Equinox mostly just because it was in good condition at a low price.

- Abbey W

The Equinox is a reliable, safe, long-lasting midsize SUV

The car has performed well and been fairly reliable over the last 7 years. We did an issue with an oil consumption problem, which I understand was some sort of factory issue with a recall. Chevy eventually fixed it and put in a brand new engine free of charge. I like the back up camera feature. The car and ride is comfortable, I just wish I had something with third row seating due to my growing family.

- Kelly Z

Lots of legroom in the back seats.

Very comfortable, love sitting high, can fit a lot in the back of the car, don't like that it is not as gas efficient as I'd like. Lots of legroom in the back seats for passengers, especially for tall people that is great! I have taken a few longer trips with the car and it works like a charm. Air and heat really work quickly and you don't have to wait forever for it to warm up or cool down.

- Emily G

My Equinox helps me navigate through my daily life.

There was a major engine issue that consumed excessive oil. The test / proof phase was a pain but Chevy fixed it free of charge. It is comfortable and drives well. There is a slight blind spot at the rear corners. I like how the rear seat adjusts forward and back to give more leg room or more cargo space. Overall I would recommend the Equinox to others and would look at it for my next car.

- Karen S

Love the in car phone it is so convenient and such a great safety feature.

Love the car in phone— love the way it drives and rides. Ours has had a problem with metal shreds in the oil pan but other than that it has given us no problems. We had some major repair work done related to the metallic pieces in the oil pan at approximately 107000 miles and are now assuring that oil is changed at least every 3000 miles but other than that we have had no problems.

- Lora V

Family riding in my Chevrolet I'd fun and spacious.

I love this car! It comfortably fits my 3 smaller children including car seat. The sound system is awesome. The ride is smooth and feels like a car. The front dash area is full of gadgets that you can customize to your convenience while in the vehicle. Gas mileage runs okay but it is a great value for your buck if you are shopping for a family car and needing space for up to 3 kids.

- Evelyn W

Equinox using oil, might be warranted by Chevy.

I bought it because of the price and it was a cute little car. Then it used oil until the engine was torn down and the rings were replaced. Luckily it was a known issue warranted by Chevrolet. The gas pedal has serious hesitation which is very frustrating. The back seats do not lay down flat, this makes it hard to pack the back for traveling. It still gets good mileage for the age.

- Lorraine C

The batmobiles Equinox I love to drive my car in the night time.

My vehicle has 145144 mi. It drives well do not really have much problems with my vehicle it has 4WD it is silver with tinted windows come with a AUX cord CD player it is a very reliable car it gets me to work school home and etc. everyday. I drove to Akron oh a lot with my vehicle gas where I moved to is kind of expensive it cost $45 dollars to fill my tank up before I paid $40.

- Shay R

Been a good vehicle for money.

This vehicle drives and rides very comfortable. The only downfall I wish I would have considered adding the tow package and getting the v6 engine. Never had any mechanic problems as of yet seven years and 110, 000 miles later. Rides well on interstate and maintain 22-24 miles per gallon in Appalachia mountains. Love the way seat lay down to haul more in back of vehicles.

- Ray M

Perks and negatives of a Chevy Equinox.

Really love it! Has lots of room (was able to fit everything I took to college in it), has a back-up camera (Issue it more to see if anyone is right behind me instead of using it to back up due to showing objects way farther back than are), and you can really see well out the windows. It is hard for the ac to hit the driver due to the steering wheel being in front of it.

- Ryan K

Great amount of legroom!

This is the second Chevy Equinox I have owned. I like the smaller SUV size but love the amount of legroom it has in front but more importantly for the passengers in the back seat. Easy to drive and comes in different levels depending on all the features you want. Heated leather seats, an auto-dim rearview mirror, auto-lift tailgate, and sunroof are important to me.

- Shelly C

Chevrolet Equinox: comfort and reliability.

My Chevrolet Equinox is comfortable, spacious, and enjoyable to drive. I have not had any major issues with it, and find it to be very reliable. The fact that it is AWD gives me peace of mind for winter driving, and the heated seats are a wintertime plus as well. The sound quality of the stereo system is excellent, and the Bluetooth connectivity is a major bonus.

- Autumn I

Spacious, quiet, and comfortable.

Check engine light comes on as part of an issue with the 02 sensor. It has been very reliable nonetheless. The seats are comfortable and there is a lot of legroom in the second row. Plenty of trunk space and the second row seats fold down for even more space. Bluetooth for phone calls only. Cannot stream music from your phone unless connected to a cable.

- Noelle A

Easy to park even in tight spots.

The car is really great especially for parking. It is really easy to park. I also like the display for how fast you are going. The back seat does not have air vents. The back seat is hard to set things in because it is not flat. The cupholders are hard to clean. I have had to replace the tires a lot but that could just be bad luck on my part.

- Chelsea S

Great looking car but may need maintenance. Never left me stranded.

The Chevy Equinox has a great appearance, always looks clean and cool. It is very spacious in both the front and back seats. My only issues is that there's minor electrical issues like no heated seat and sometimes the electrical seat mover gets stuck. It feels like one day it will need a transmission because it bumps when it changes gears.

- Melissa W

Blind spots on the Chevy equinox.

The sets get uncomfortable after riding an hour or more. After 7 years our back up camera is a hit and miss on when it wants to work. I love the fuel economy but the pillars between the dash and door are really wide and have made a large blind spot. Several times I have started out of a driveway to then see the car and slam on the brakes.

- Elisabeth R

Extremely dependable and very low maintenance. Gas mileage is good and is great in all types of weather. The cost was extremely reasonable

WE have a 2011 Chevrolet Equinox. it required very minimal repair over the years and when it had a large recall repair, the dealership gave us a beautiful loaner vehicle. It gets great gas mileage and is extremely dependable in all types of weather. We have over 160,000 miles on it and we are currently contemplating another one.

- Frances P

Honda car has 3 different color on it.

Chevy has recalls on the 2011 due to airbags. Already spent $500. 00 in dealer shop. Gas is good on this car. Brother in law messes it up. Now it needs tender loving care. Honda don't run, it needs a lot of tender loving care. The 2016 Chevy is good. Its my mother in law car, she let us use it if really needed. Gas is great on it.

- Mandy C

Mom of 2 growing kids with long legs.

The car I had before was a little Chevy cavalier. With 2 growing kids, I knew I needed something with more leg room but I was afraid of getting something too big. The Equinox was a perfect fit for my family because it gave the kids the leg room they needed, without making me feel like I went from a small car to something too big.

- Jennifer D

I have a 2011 blue Chevy Equinox that I affectionately call blue ivy.

I like the size of my car, I didn't want a small car but also didn't want a huge car, so the size is perfect. I have had very few problems since I bought it used in 2015 even though it already had 70k miles on it. Very smooth ride, good gas mileage. I love the easy usb/Bluetooth connection process. Easy to use navigation system.

- Emily K

Mechanically my Chevy equinox has been very reliable, only issue was a small sensor that I replaced.

My Chevy equinox gets pretty good gas mileage for a small SUV. I like that it has a roomy interior and that I can place large items in the back cargo area. My vehicle still looks new for being 7 years old. The only thing I kind of dislike it that is only has a 4 cylinder engine, so no power but it does get great gas mileage.

- Louie M

It gets the job done. It's a good family size car and it gets me where I need to go relatively comfortably.

I like the size of it and the fact that it's not too big or too small. I like the small SUV size and it's comfortable for me to drive. I like the XM radio which I listen to all the time. This make/model has had engine issues though and it is very sluggish. I'm worried every mile that I put on it that it's going to die on me.

- Kira B

Flashy, classy, and reliable.

Gas mileage is the only concern I have ever had with my vehicle. It averages around 24mpg when it should get around 30 mpg. Everything else is wonderful. There is power when and where you want it. The interior has held up beyond well even after the abuse of my nieces and nephews it still cleans up and looks good as new.

- Ryan S

That the 4 cylinder engine while good on gas makes it slow to get moving after stopping at a traffic light.

I like my Chevy equinox because it has a very roomy interior that's also comfortable and has great storage in the back or trunk area. It's a comfortable drive. It's great in the snow as well. Great looking vehicle. I don't care for the 4 cylinder engine, I feel like when I put my foot on the gas it jerks and dogs to go.

- MaryJo B

My car— the best answer to hands free phone usage on the road.

Some oil issues—it is comfortable on long trips— I love the in car phone system—the stereo is good quality. I like all the available storage. It gets fair/good gas mileage on the highway. It has stayed looking very good for its age. Have received several compliments lately —people saying it looks like a new car.

- Lora V

Reliable with a few minor issues!

The car has been reliable with no major problems. I do not get near the mileage stated on the sale sticker, was 26 to 29 I only get 21 miles per gallon. Some things are cheaply made, the back wiper brakes easily and the rubber on the blade doesn't last long, the fake silver wrap on inside door handles are peeling off.

- Mary A

My 2011 Chevy Equinox review:

It had a recall on the fuel pump in 2016. I had 3000. 00 worth of engine repair done in spring of 2018. The extended warranty company refused to pay the bill. Needed to repair the exhaust system in fall 2018. The light does not work. There was a dent on the back left above the tire and paint missing when I bought it.

- Susan A

Equinox in a rural living area.

I love my Equinox. I've had it over 3 years and I am not getting tired of it yet. I live in eastern Oregon where the weather is very unpredictable. It's nice to have a car that can handle so well in all Terrain. Its does great in snow, ice, rain and the gravel road I live on. Its comfy when packed full of people also.

- Mckenzie C

Definition of reliable and logical

The Chevrolet Equinox is a wonderful car! It rides smooth and offers many up to date features, even on older models! The gas mileage is beyond expectations and the car is comfortable to ride and drive. The only issue is some of the sensors are quirky and set things off when, in reality, nothing is wrong with the car.

- Sheridan G

Lemon. Many issues with this vehicle.

All but one notices received that describe things that might go wrong have gone wrong with this vehicle. Biggest issue has been with the engine, several repairs have been needed. I do not feel this vehicle is reliable. It makes odd noises at times when starting it and sometimes does not start on the first attempt.

- Nancy L

Reliable, but with blind spots.

I am happy with the vehicle overall. I did have the battery die without any signs and the vehicle has overheated on me once. It was an expensive tow and fix. I don't like the blind spots that make it difficult to see. I live in a big city and need to change lanes often. The blind spots are extremely dangerous.

- Ann K

My used Equinox experience.

These are some of my biggest complaints. Bad catalytic converter. Goes through oil like crazy. Had to replace timing chain. Doesn't us flex fuel. *these are things I think I benefit from having the vehicle. Stylish. Ergonomic. Fuel efficient. Modern enough to participate in ride sharing companies.

- Immanuel D

Too many problems, too much money.

I purchased my truck used. There have been several catalytic converter issues, I have had to replace the transmission control module. The upper manifold and the windshield wiper motor had to be replaced. The balance of my warranty didn't cover these issues. I do not think I'll ever purchase a Chevrolet again.

- Wendi W

Why I like the Chevy Equinox.

Comfortable seating front and back. The vehicle does not sit right on the road like a car does. Roominess in back end allows for large shopping trips. The silver color tends to hide dirt better than darker color. Stereo system is very nice. Wish them would make the back sides easier to see out of though.

- Jer K

Really pay attention when you test drive the car, take into consideration where the blind spots are.

I like that it's sits higher than a car, and I like all the cubbies, lots of rm. What I don't like is no matter how I adjust the seat, I always seem to bump my head or the pedals are to far away, the blind spot in front from where the windshield connects to the side, and the way it shifts, very jerky.


It's a fun size SUV family car with lots of room.

It's a great SUV size vehicle for a family. The gas mileage isn't to good like only 20 mpg it rides smoothly, has powered windows, backup camera, CD player, heated seats, heated mirrors, the back seats can go back, powered lift gate it's a pretty good vehicle if it would just get better gas mileage.

- Beth L

My opinion of 2011 Chevrolet Equinox.

It is good on fuel mileage. It does use a lot of oil. It has some electrical issues, mainly the GPS system. It has enough power, even with 4 cyl engine. It is roomy for a small SUV. I think overall it is a pretty dependable vehicle. You can get about all the features you would want on this vehicle.

- Frank M

My 2011 Chevy Equinox is the most reliable vehicle I've ever had.

My Chevy Equinox is hands down the most reliable vehicle I've ever had. Its nice and stylish as well as spacious enough for work and basketball practice. There are several features including an mp3 input in which you can charge your android phone and still be able to access all apps on your phone.

- Jackson S

Not for sale. Not for sale. Thank you.

Not selling vehicle, it drives pretty good low maintenance on vehicle, nice color, tires just recently put on. Gas is reasonable to put inside of the tank. Like I said vehicle is not being sold at this time I need this vehicle for myself for transportation. Thank you and have a good wonderful day.

- Ind I

Information on a vehicle.

Nice, rides great, the performance on vehicle is good, it's very reliable rides smooth it kind of a low maintenance when driving. Have different features to use inside the vehicle, the seating is very comfortable and relaxing, comes in different colors. This one has a sunroof, which is very nice.

- Ib I

Good and reliable car but one issue.

Comfortable driving and good look. Spacious interior. More rugged than expected. I did have an issue with the motor where it would burn through motor oil faster than expected was a factory issue fixed by the company for free at the dealership but the problem did take a long time to figure out.

- Will J

Comfortable for highway driving or riding.

Gas mileage is not what is advertised. It is comfortable to drive or ride in. I have had a problem with the battery and a sensor, but they were easy fixes and not real expensive. The drain tubes for the sunroof started leaking and had to be replaced. The rear wiper blade has a very short life.

- Karen D

Ok car for the amount of driving that I do.

Backup camera is too small. Heated seats are great. Love remote starter. However lift gate is manual-do not like. Has OnStar feature kept it while it was free then cancelled. Good gas mileage. Was not my first choice of cars but husband who is a mechanic says Equinox is a reliable vehicle.

- Helen K

It is very safe. I feel safe with my child being in there with me. I also feel safe going on vacation in it.

I have had no problems. I love my vehicle. He gets great gas mileage and is very comfortable .I have went out of town several times and I have never had a problem. I will definitely buy another one like I have now when it is time. The back seat is even comfortable for anyone back there

- Stephanie P

Dependable and amazing Equinox’s.

I really love my car! The gas mileage is great, and it was really dependable. I like the radio and air conditioning control. I do wish that when my phone was connected to Bluetooth, it would play music, not just calls. Instead, I must plug my phone in, but overall this is a great car!

- Lexie V

This car has the best gas mileage.

I have had no problems. I take it for regular maintenance. The only thing I do not have is a rear view camera. They were not out yet, but my next car will have that. I am not a car person. As long as it gets me from here to there and back again I am happy. It is also very good on gas.

- Mary Lou C

It's a great vehicle overall. It's not flashy, with the most up to date bells and whistles, but it is very reasonable.

I have no real complaints regarding my vehicle. It has enough space for my son and me, and any of his equipment we may need to travel with. The trunk is very spacious. I love that the backseat slides, allowing the extra room in the backseat or trunk. It is reasonable on gas mileage.

- Melissa S

Fun, zippy just the right size vehicle.

Nice drive just my size love the back seat room. And cargo room for hauling my groceries and treasures. I like the silver color we chose. I notice there are a lot of these vehicles on the road so they must be popular and I do hope it will be a good vehicle that will last many years.

- J K

Maybe eleven years old but still stylish.

I like the cruise control. The CD player is a added feature. I also like the vehicle information center. The car has lots of room for comfort. The cars information center is handy. The backup feature on the rear view mirror is nice. The only thing better would be if it was a pickup.

- Sherry H

You seen one Chevy SUV you have seen them all.

Just bought this car about 2 weeks ago, having no issues to date, cannot complain, thankfully heat works, inside is more like our old terrain than the Equinox we traded it in for but so far so good, wish it had a little bit more room but take what you can get and afford around here.

- Kimberly G

Great family vehicle to own.

It is dependable. Lots of room. Drives so smoothly. Easy to handle. Down side it eats a lot of gas. It drives really well in the snow too. Compared to other vehicles I have had this is my favorite car by far. I recommended it to a few people. I see a lot of Equinoxes wherever I go.

- Pam J

Space is decent, have had a handful of issues.

I have had the wheel bearings break 2 times now and muffler got a hole once. The trunk space seems a lot smaller than I thought when I bought it. The front seating area is open and not cramping the backseat seems to have decent space as well. It also seems to go through oil a lot!

- Brittany W

Dependable, durable, fun, reliable, fast, with tons of storage, and the optional tow hitch is great too.

My car has leather seats, front heated seats, remote start (which is one of my favorite features), electric windows, mirrors, and front seats, the back seats lay flat for more trunk storage, the diving is smooth, and the audio is great. This is my favorite vehicle I've ever owned.

- Candice C

Reliability and comfort play heavily with this vehicle.

Have a had the usual issues with a car of this age. Nothing that was overly costly. I currently have 121, 000+ miles on it (i have only had it since 2013) and it is still running great. When I get ready to purchase another vehicle I will probably look a this make and model again.

- Karen H

Great driving low maintenance and great gas mileage.

Great vehicle. Great gas mileage. Low maintenance. Smooth riding. Lots of storage and leg room. Love the reclining seats. Great business with OnStar and Sirius XM radio options. We take it every year for our family vacation. There's plenty of room for all 5 of us and our luggage.

- Jennifer O

Black, has sunroof, Bluetooth, aux, usb, decent gas mileage, very roomy.

I haven't had many problems at all. I love my Bluetooth for making calls but you can't use it for music. It has an AUX and USB port which is nice. Bottoms for cruise and volume are on the steering wheel. I have a sunroof which both my dogs and I enjoy. It's fairly good on gas.

- Taylor W

It is comfortable and reliable while using it to go to work or even on trips.

It is reliable, comfortable and has great performance. It is able to ride with 5 people comfortable. You can get heated seats, dark tint windows, leather interior, and nice floor mats. The mileage on the vehicle is not bad compared to the amount of people able to ride in it.

- Sam L

Good family car; one drawback.

I enjoy the size of the Equinox and it has been a good family car. It has been reliable and has space for what we need. The one thing I dislike is the lack of air vents in the back seats. Our children get hot in the summer back there. Otherwise; it has been a great vehicle.

- Whitney B

Love it is the best thing I ever could buy.

Love it best car good accessories and good on gas mileage great for traveling errands going to taking my daughter to school you know and affordable parts in the a little high off the ground is a floods I love the inside seats comfortable good for luggage traveling and etc.

- Veronica R

I choose an Equinox - you should, too!

My Equinox drives smoothly and feels very stable and grounded, both with in town driving and on the highway. It is very comfortable and controls are easy to use. The only problem I have had is that the oil level tends to get low between changes, but a leak cannot be found.

- Christina S

Great universal vehicle for anyone.

2nd Equinox I have bought, very affordable and easy to keep up with. It's a smooth ride, can load it up, and great on gas mileage. Great for back and forth to work, or even long distance traveling. Only downfall is the oil needs to be changed more often than recommended.

- Ana M

I am happy with my vehicle and trust the brand.

My vehicle is very comfortable. It is the perfect size and it is attractive from the outside. It has leather seats. Although, it is an older model so it does not have all of the luxuries that newer cars have. If I could change it, I would add heat seaters and Bluetooth.

- Juliet B

Great dependable family starter car.

Great car for a small young family. Not a lot of room in the back seat for more that two car seats. Rides great. Has plenty of room in the back if traveling. Will definitely have to upgrade once children get a little older since there is hardly any leg room in the back.

- Ashley C

The features it has and is very rooming.

I love my car and driving a Chevy. Never owned a car as nice as this one. Has many features that I yet have to learn. Drives really well in snow and easy to handle. I bought it used but had low miles looks and runs great. Chevy is the way to go when searching for a car.

- Carla E

Great family car, plenty of room for family and pets to travel.

It does not have rear vents for heat and air conditioning. Slight hesitation on acceleration, overall, few service issues. Wish the mileage was better. Car still looks new, sound system is just ok. The passenger seat is not power adjustable. Would consider buying again.

- Denise D

A great vehicle to own! Highly recommend!

Very roomy, I love the adjustable back seat that allows for more cargo room and it is great on gas! It is also very comfortable for long road trips. My only complaint is a squeaky belt that has been that way from day one. They have been replaced and continue to squeak!

- Jess M

Great small SUV that is easy to drive. .

Very reliable, simple, handles well, big enough for me to carry people and haul things. A little hard to see out the windows. The power outlets do not work. The Bluetooth seems to have static. It is a good looking car. For a SUV it is small and easy to drive and park.

- Ann S

In the middle on the scales with this one.

Recalls have been placed for the catalytic converter, and actuator solenoid. Issues with battery life, and everything is electrical. The power steering has no fluid. Other than that, good car. Love the eco option. 2 cylinders on the highway is great for gas mileage.

- Brooke S

The biggest highlight of this car is being able to haul a large number of kids.

I love this vehicle because I have had no issues it's easy to drive and has tons of room inside. It's also a nice looking vehicle. It's great to take on vacation too. I did have to replace my air conditioning this summer but other than that everything has been good.

- Amy R

A very comfortable ride highway or city.

It is a good vehicle for town or highway. The gas mileage is not as good as advertised. So far it has been a very reliable vehicle. The only problem was the drain tubes for the sunroof. One was disintegrated and the drivers side floorboard had water standing in it.

- Karen E

Make sure it is still within the time frame for the over consumption of oil warranty.

I like the gas mileage, the stereo system, xm radio, the convenience. I dislike the expensive problems I have had with it but I seem to have fixed those for now. I like that i basically got a whole new motor from chevy due to a defect with it over consuming oil.

- Josh d

I love my Chevy Equinox, comfortable, roomy, and affordable!

My Equinox is very comfortable, has a backup camera which I love! It is so helpful. I have had minor repairs such as replacing the windshield, brake pads, and a small electrical problem. Other than that I really enjoy my car, the gas mileage and it is comfortable.

- Danica C

It tells you how many miles you can get from your gas.

It is a great vehicle, great features and gas mileage. It has a backup camera, ecoboost for gas, Bluetooth for safe calling and all kinds of buttons I do not understand. It tells you the smallest thing how many miles you have left of gas and if your tires are low.

- Sarah P

Chevrolet Equinox good car!

Very nice car, nice size. Runs great I haven't had a problem with it since I got it 8 months ago. Roomy, decent on gas due to the size of the vehicle. Overall good car and would definitely recommend to others. Very good car for families, has decent size hatchback.

- Hali H

Reliable vehicle for small family.

A lot of room to be able to carry many items, no major mechanical issues over the years, maintenance free good on gas, comfortable dependable in the winter able to get to work in snow storm safe drives well rom to stretch out when traveling quiet ride nice colors.

- Deb H

It is very comfortable and roomy.

No problems with the vehicle yet. It has been good to us. Just the normal wear and tear. The only thing I would say is the oil changes are more expensive but not by much. It has been very reliable, it is roomy, drives nice and smooth. It is not a gas hog either.

- Kim S

Comfortable yet versatile

I like the space I have to haul things, but at the same time I wish it was 4 inches longer inside so I could haul 6 foot tables. It is easy for older people to get into and out of. I wish it did not hesitate when you accelerate. There is a pause before it goes.

- Marth E

Comfortable and efficient car.

I have been getting the check engine light coming on and off for weeks at a time. Was told it was the catalytic convertor but when it is off the diagnostics come back fine. So I haven't changed it yet. But it is an annoying problem. Other than that love the car.

- Janet W

Avoid Chevrolet Equinox, either terrible or miraculous.

Started using excessive oil at 40, 000 miles. Motor rebuilt by Chevrolet. Air conditioner compressor has died, axle on front going out. Performance is terrible gas mileage is horrible. I would avoid this car if at all possible. Front-end needs to be realigned.

- Jean O

That it's a champ for only getting a few scratches and imperfections when I drove into a light post! Surprisingly, I was still able to drive it after that.

I like the size of it; it's perfect for my little family. It is fuel efficient, as well. The one thing I don't like about it is that I have to press on the gas kind of hard to get it to accelerate and that becomes a problem when I'm driving on the highway.

- Rubi S

2011 Chevrolet Equinox Review

I like the cargo room in my Chevy Equinox, we were able to fit an entire sectional from IKEA in the back. The backseat has plenty of room for passengers. The power steering module needed to be replaced right around 20,000 miles, but no problems since then.

- Kristy G

That my car is very nice and the miles you get per gallon is very good and hard to compete with.

I like how the car can drive far and not use that much gas and it is a good sized vehicle for carrying stuff around and having many passengers the only thing I don't like is how sometimes the car seems a little cheaper than other cars but that's about it.

- Noah C

Its comfortable and easy to maneuver.

Lots of repairs but it could be old. I do drive a lot but in have had to replace a lot on the vehicle after buying it just 2 years ago. I also would like the Bluetooth to be free in the car instead of paying for OnStar to get it otherwise it is decent.

- Jo W

I like the way it handles.

I have always liked my car. Its extremely comfortable to drive. Great road car. The size is large enough to haul some things when needed but not too large. Its has all the bells and whistles on it. Completely satisfied and easy to get in and out of.

- Laurie C

The air conditioner sucks.

Great car. . A/c sucks!! Everything about the a/c is horrible. The vents are blocked by the steering wheel and it does not blow very strong. It does not circulate at all! Summertime you are cooking in the car. Never again will I buy this vehicle.

- Veronica J

It is roomy and comfortable to drive.

I like that it is a small SUV with plenty of room in the "trunk"/hatch area. . There is plenty of room in the backseat, including leg room. It has an eco setting for gas. I dislike that it does not have a/c & heat vents in the back seat area.

- Barbara G

Great mid sized SUV for small families

Oil life issues, caused piston seals to need replaced - but that was covered in a recall. Chevy has done a great job covering defects in the vehicle. Otherwise, gets good gas mileage, very spacious back seat area, no issues with radio etc.

- Sue D

Chevy makes a good mostly quality car but all companies can not be perfect

the riding is smooth and comfortable the size is good for our job for commercial cleaning that's the good things. but it cost too much to repair I have a air conditioner compressor out and a heater vent problem that too high to fix now

- mike m

It rides like a heavier vehicle

I wish it had built in wi-fi, more standard electric plugs & an automatic trunk lift. I love the ride & feel of the car. This is the 1st vehicle that I've kept more than 3 or 4 years & haven't gotten "new car fever" Best car ever!

- Debbie O

Dependable and great on gas!

I get great gas mileage, it is very roomy, my favorite feature is the backseat because it is an adjustable bench seat to allow for more cargo space when needed. Only complaint is I had to change a squeaky belt shortly after purchase.

- Jessica M

Good performance in the snow and good gas mileage.

I love the size and performance of this vehicle in the snow. I don't like that if you want to replace this vehicle you can only get a 4 cylinder. We would like to get a vehicle this size with a row package. 4 cylinder is too small.

- Diana F

You can't beat the roominess and quality for the price of the vehicle. It's a great choice in pretty much every respect.

I love the room in the back and that it can seat five people. It's great for a small family vehicle and great for vacation. My only complaint is the stereo is really crappy in the front. All in all, it's a great affordable vehicle.

- Hannah C

The one mat important thing is it's Great on tripS and good family car.

I love that it has a lot of room inside.its dependable.looks good.strong uphill.i don't like how one side if the AC blows fast/hard and cook and the other isn't as hard.but there isn't anything wrong w the AC it's made that was

- Gina T

You always get a ride that does not fatigue your body.

Our Equinox is extremely comfortable especially on the long travels we have to make in our family. This vehicle is so reliable in snowy and icy weather and gives us the confidence we need to travel in these condition by car.

- Mary M

I do not like the infotainment area. I don't like the angle of it. It is too much of an angle and too far away from me and I get sun reflections at me when I am driving. It drives loudly. Maybe it is the AWD, but it is too loud. I really hate the backup camera in the mirror. I NEVER use it. The view it distorted. I feel a bit cramped in this car, like a cockpit. But ... I like the roomy back seat. I like the heated seat and auto-adj seat, bluetooth sync with phone.

It can feel cramped if you want to use it to do any kind of traveling or vacations. It is good for commuting to and from work, or getting from point A to point B, but not a whole lot of room for much more. It fills up fast.

- Kelli Z

Everything about the gas how many gallons doe car hold, mpg ratio, and type of gas car takes.

I like all the space it provides. I don't like the way the trunk lets down or that the lock is only located the middle of the car near radio. I like how easy child proof is to turn on off. I wish i had seat warmers though

- Angelica C

good commuter car with decent gas mileage and comfortable styling.

comfortable with as many features as could be expected and decent gas mileage, but it lakes power and isn't quite big enough to be a good family vehicle. no air vents in the back make it tough for a family with babies.

- zach N

It has been reliable but be careful of blind spot turning corners.

Blind spot when turning corners/driving for a brief moment. Like that it has plenty of storage and the way the seats fold down in the back. I also like that the spare wheel is hidden and does not really take up space.

- Tammy B

Comfortable, nice looking, and great feel in driving.

The Chevy Equinox is a fairly dependable vehicle. Normal wear and tear is normal, have had problems with some CPU issues, and also the compressor has gone out within 6 years. All in all, it has been very dependable.

- Kathryn S

The most important thing is that it probably will cost you to replace the ABS system.

I dislike this vehicle because I had to replace the ABS on one wheel, and now I have to replace the other one. I like this car because it is dependable and had plenty of room for me.Overall, it is a pretty nice SUV.

- Joseph D

Not great gas mileage. Runs well.

Car run very well. Currently has 130+ miles on it. Only thing currently not is working order is the heat. The car is very spacious and roomy. Gas mileage is not too good given the amount of miles on the vehicle.

- Kate F

Spacious, comfortable and affordable vehicle

I love my Chevy equinox. It fits 5 people, has a backup camera, nice interior & cloth seats, automatic car starter and a very smooth ride. I've had it for 7 years & have only had to do low maintenance on it.

- Stacy K

Equinox is a reliable truck. I have not done any major repairs to the vehicle.

The Equinox is a reliable, family vehicle. It is big enough to haul 5 passengers but small enough to drive alone. Equinox is great on gas mileage and because it is a Chevrolet, it is definitely dependable.

- Valencia M

It's a nice, convenient vehicle but don't expect to race in it.

I like that the vehicle is compact, yet spacious. It holds a lot but still fits in parking spaces like a normal car. I dislike the acceleration. It feels like it takes too long for it to get up to speed.

- Chris E

it is reliable. With the AWD feature it has no trouble driving in snow.

I like the overall appearance and handling. I am confused as to why the door lock button is located on the center console and not the door as in most cars. I do wish the cargo area was a little larger.

- Jared P

Has Bad engine design threw a rod with low mileage.

I had to replace my engine at 80000 miles even though I had regularly maintained the vehicle. There are several other mechanical problems that should not have happened yet. The interior is great though.

- Colleen C

The backup camera is very useful.

I love this car because it has a great backup camera. It has a fantastic touch screen radio with Bluetooth connectability. This car drives very smooth and great. It has a very comfy and roomy interior.

- Danielle W

2011 Chevy Equinox: repairs but reliable!

My experience with the Equinox has been tedious. We've had to replace the transmission, engine, and joints on the car. However, this car is durable for heavy winters and is excellent on gas mileage.

- Rye W

It is very reliable and dependable. It gets good gas mileage.

I love my equinox. It is just the right size for someone who travels by themselves. It gets good gas mileage. I have owned it for 2 years and the only trouble i have had with it is the manifold.

- Tracy J

This car has newer small engine so take off is slower.

I love this car have for years and I just got it. My favorite feature is child lock its up front with me so I never have to worry about them being able to unlock themselves. Its cute little SUV.

- Lydia M

Safe, reliable, great on gas and roomy. Over 100,000 miles and no major issues.

My equinox has over 100,000 miles on it and has only had one problem not covered by the factory warranty. All issues have been common to my vehicle. It is safe, reliable, great on gas and roomy.

- Erica H

I am not really happy with this car. If I could, I'd trade it.

It is a really comfortable car but the transmission can be a pain. It needed a whole new one because the current one thought it was great to leak oil. It leaked every little bit of oil it had.

- Katherine E

Dependable smooth ride that is just the right size.

I like the car with the exception of the view from the windows. It is obstructed by the frame. I would like to have the dual control air conditioner. I love the ride and the size of the car.

- Crystal N

It's a great family car and holds a lot of stuff in the rear. It also drives really well and I feel safe in it. I've been off road a few times in it and it handles well and it takes curves well too!

Only major problem I've had is it sometimes leaks oil but other than that I love it! It's a very nice vehicle, it drives well and it has lots of room in the back for luggage and beach stuff.

- Christina O

Look carefully for cars coming from your right, you won't see them without great effort

The car does drive smoothly and is comfortable.It does have a major blindspot looking to the right out the front windshield. The a/c and heat are also a problem as they stop working often.

- leo G

My Chevy Equinox is very reliable and has a great design.

I like how reliable it is. I haven't had an issue besides replacing battery since I bought it new. I like how it's small but not too small and has a great design. The car still looks new.

- Ash S

The one most important thing people should know about my car is that it is dependable and has been a wonderful vehicle.

This has been one of the best and most reliable vehicles I have owned. I love the way it handles in the winter, the storage space, the roominess for passengers. It gets good gas mileage.

- Nicole M

It is comfortable for long trips and has good gas mileage. Overall, it is a good family vehicle.

I like the gas mileage and the comfort. I do not like that we had to replace the transmission last year and I feel it is somewhat unreliable. I would like a somewhat bigger vehicle, too.

- Toni C

Make sure you buy a new one.

It's a lot of kinks. And it's on Chevy recall. Air bags not working. You have to take it to the car repair shop to put transmission fluid. The seniors went bad 3 days after purchase.

- Kenneth C

Really love my 2011 Chevy Equinox.

I haven't had any problems with my Equinox. I have had it for 3 years now and it is been a really reliable car for me and my three children. I am actually looking into a newer model.

- Stephanie M

Great looking vehicle and also great family suv

Smooth running car and it's great on gas plenty of room to haul things in it and also plenty of room for your family to fit comfortably great safety features such as backup cameras

- Diane D

It has back seats that fold down that makes it more roomy for when you have a lot of stuff to fit in the vehicle

I like all the different features it has like the back up camera, heated seats, and sunroof. Drives well and does great in the snow. The only thing I don't like is the blind spots

- Kelsi P

that it is a decent little car that gets pretty good gas mileage

the equinox drives well and has a lot of features, Like onstar,backup camera and a decent radio. my only complaints are not real roomy and no vents for ac or heat in the backseat.

- darcey p

Even though it is a SUV it still gets good gas mileage for both highway and city.

Comfortable and lots of room. Back seats fold down easily for more storage room. Cruise control and sunroof great features. No air controls for rear passengers which is downfall.

- Elisabeth M

2011 equinox, 89000 miles, silver, basic model

I had a replacement a few years back that was a 2017 equinox and I fell in love. I ended up totaling my other car and ended up with my 2011 equinox. I absolutely love this car!

- Brittney S

That it doesn't have a lot of room once you put 2 car seats in it.

I like the size and the look of my vehicle. But i don't like that dirt gets up under doors, hard to clean the window and always has smell even after changing the air filters.

- Suzanne H

It's a great car for traveling if you want to spend less on gas.

It is good on gas which saves money. The back seats are comfortable. The one thing I don't like is that we golf and it isn't very big in the back for clubs and suitcases.

- Cindy M

It burns oils really fast. When It's almost time for an oil change it starts making crazy noise.

It has been a great car for me and my family. We now have 3 kids and with 2 car seats they are crowded in the backseat. It does have great trunk space and good gas mileage.

- Kerrah F

It is great for families with one or two children.

I like that my vehicle has a lot of room. I like that it is easy to drive. I don't like that I have had to replace parts (solenoid, air regulator, etc) under 100,000 miles.

- Tina F

I like to always look for a company that is safe for the family and friends.

I love everything about the equinox. I do however, wish that it also came with the 3rd row seating. Overall I would recommend this vehicle to a different job and co worker.

- Pamela C

My Equinox is a joy to drive.

I enjoy driving my Equinox. It has been dependable and looks classy. I get good gas mileage. It has a moon roof which gets used a lot. I have no complaints about this car.

- Vicki G

It gets good fuel economy. The interior has held up well. The cargo space is great.

I have been notified that it qualifies for exchange under the lemon law. It's not terrible but the suspension and wheel base make for a very rough almost sickening ride.

- Cody P

It is American, it was made in the US, and the money stays in the country.

I like that is it is made in the united states. I like the room it has in the backseat. I like the SUV part for groceries. I like that the seats go down for bigger items.

- Joan S

Very reliable and great on gas.

Well I literally just bought it, but I love how smooth the drive is, all the features, and how long a tank of gas lasts. The only thing I do not like it parking it haha.

- Sarah P

All Equinoxes have an oil consumption problem.

I really like the size of my vehicle. It is very comfortable and easy to drive. I do have and issue with oil consumption which I learned is an issue with all Equinoxes.

- Andrea C

It has issues shifting and circulation is not great.

I like how safe it feels. However is has had shifting issues. I wish there was air vents in the backseat. It doesn't get as good of gas mileage as it was advertised.

- Vanessa W

Don't buy an equinox they aren't made well.

I like the style, and the concept. I hate that there is always something wrong with it. It gets me where i need to go but i honestly wish i would have never bought it.

- Kyle M

It drives like a car but is a small SUV.

It had a recall but the dealership fixed it. Most problems have been under warranty. Overall a great car for the money. I am hoping to get a few more years out of it.

- Alyssa G

The rear holds lots of cargo, and there's still enough room for car seats in the backseat.

It's the perfect size for what I need. Unfortunately, it has higher gas mileage than advertised. If I used it more the gas mileage would outweigh the the size need.

- Michelle R

Love my car and the comfort driving it

I have had no problems and I love it, it gets good gas mileage, is easy to drive, and easy to get into. It has a backup camera and all the goodies, heated seats,etc.

- Linda H

Not a good choice for family vehicle

Uses too much oil. More air vents are needed for proper a/c ventilation during hot weather. Slow to go when the gas pedal is used when you go after a complete stop.

- Maira F

The one thing that is most important is that it's roomy for multiple kids

I love the ride of the vehicle. It's luxurious and comfy. It sits up high and makes me feel safe. THe only thing I don't like is the oil problems these cars have.

- britney r

It has been very reliable, especially in the winter with snow and ice.

It has been a good car, especially getting around in the snow. I really just want a change and it is more car than I need with not having any kids still at home.

- Kristen C

Not as good on gas mileage as I really care for.

So far so good. Haven't had it that long. Has a lot of room. Easy to get in and out of. Its classified as a truck but you wouldn't think that. Very comfortable.

- Susan W

The back up camera is one of my favorite features. I've never been great at parallel parking, but the camera helps so much.

I love this vehicle, I have owned 3 in my life - a Ford, a Hyundai and a Chevy Equinox and the Chevy is by far the best in reliability, performance and comfort.

- Julia G

It is a reliable Chevrolet. I have had other makes, but always return to a Chevy.

It is fully loaded with heated seats. It is the perfect size for my family of 3. It is comfortable to drive and as a front seat passenger. Nice size cargo area.

- KS T

People should know that it is great for trips.

I like the size and the parking camera. I do not like how there's no air in the back seat. I like the color. I do not like how the back seat is tilted so much.

- Chelsea S

When you drive it a Texas storm you feel totally safe.

It gives great gas mileage. I drove 1800 miles and it was totally comfortable for my 6'6" frame. I do wish that the back up mirror would have been larger.

- Robert h

It's kind of a price of junk. I feel bad for whoever drives it after me. I hope the dealer takes it back.

My vehicle has been a problem since I bought it. Issues with the air conditioning, a cracked manifold and it's been in two accidents. It's always something.

- Karie I

It drives great and is fun to drive.

The equinox is very deep which makes it difficult to reach some of the cubbyholes. It is roomy and comfortable. The passenger seat is very uncomfortable.

- Cindy A

It is very comfortable and very reliable. My next purchase will be a new one.

I love my Equinox. It has plenty of room without feeling like I am driving a huge tank. It gets good gas mileage too. It is very comfortable to ride in.

- Randa D

The car drives very smooth and very quiet. It handles very well on the road.

I love that it is big enough for the whole family. It gets good gas mileage. It is very dependable. I do wish it was a V6 engine not the V4 that we have.

It is a nice size vehicle good family car with lots of room powered windows, heated seats, heated mirrors, back up camera, just not very good gas mileage

- Trudy L

That the car has all wheel drive.

It is roomy, I can travel long distance. I like the look of a company SUV. The all wheel drive in it is awesome room for the winter months that I drive.

- Andrea C

It has been a very reliable car for our family with low maintenance requirements. It also gets good gas mileage.

The vehicle has required low maintenance and repairs and it is reliable. I don't have any complaints against it other than it is not very roomy inside.

- Magdalene V

Great car, safe, family car.

Haven't had many issues from my car I love the car it has xm radio as well as I feel safe with my niece in the car with me because it is a reliable car

- Heather C

Works great - excellent space for my needs. Have had issues with transmission, engine oddities, the backup camera and key fob don't work sporadically.

- Michael M

It has all wheel drive which makes it a great winter vehicle in Vermont.

The things that I like most about my vehicle are the all wheel drive and the space. It sits up higher than a car. The seats are very comfortable.

I like the all wheel drive and overall safety, it handles well too but I am not crazy about gas efficiency and I wish I could sync my phone to it.

The size is perfect for me.. The mileage per gallon is decent for an SUV.. Good handling in the snow and on slippery roads.... I have no dislikes.

Have had this car for about 4 months, no major problems yet. Really love this car, it is not too bad on gas, get around 350 miles on a full tank.

The gas mileage is a huge plus for me and is very dependable

Good gas mileage, plenty of space, heated leather seats, onstar capability, handsfree phone system, and only regular maintenance required so far.

It is a reliable and dependable car.

It is a tight squeeze for the over 6' passenger if all seats are taken. I like it is handling and easy ride. I also feel confident in its safety.

I like the way it drives. I have dogs and is perfect for traveling with them. Sits higher up than regular cars so is easy to get in and out of.

Chevy Equinox 2011 review

Comfy. Good value. Have had issues with muffler and Cadillac converter. Both had to be replaced. Good added features. I have a TV in the back

- MacKenzie M

Chevrolet Equinox is the perfect car for someone with two small kids. Enough room for them to be apart but together and I can reach them if need be.

I love the size and dependability of the car. The interior is my favorite feature. I wish it got better gas mileage and had a bigger engine.

- Brooke R

2011 Equinox not a very reliable transportation car

Purchased new, I have had several issues with the car, fuel gauge repair, all wheel drive unit replaced, AC repaired and water pump replaced

Love my car! It drives really well.

Engine light keeps coming on which affects with the way the car starts. The acceleration has been a little touch and go and sometimes skids.

- Erika A

It's a decent cheap vehicle but i wouldn't buy it if you don't have to

The vehicle gets me from point a to b but i'd never buy another one ever again. It's constantly needing work to be done. It's not made well.

- Ashley P

Has be reliable, dependable, and a classy vehicle.

It has been a reliable vehicle, rides smoothly. The only issue is the shocks for the trunk didn't last as long as I think they should have.

- Lisa M

It is safe, fuel efficient, with it being a four cylinder vehicle,

All electric windows,air, low mile, sleek, comfy seating for at least five passengers, fabric seats,cargo space in the rear, Grey in color

- Amy M

Its four wheels. I try to be thankful for what I got.

Rough sounding engine. Rusting a the door seams. All doors. I've really not had much issues so far. My car only has 72000. Time will tell.

- Sabrina S

GM doesn't stand behind their vehicles. Things fixed in recalls that break again aren't covered.

I like the size of the vehicle for hauling kids as well as commuting alone. I dislike the engine problems. I dislike that it's rusting.

- Becky F

It is comfortable and stylish.

It is a perfect family vehicle. It fits our family of 4 just right. It is comfortable and stylish. We have not had any issues with it.

Its reliable and a good vehicle.

I love it cause there is room in there for my dog and its room I dislike it because I wish there was a charging station for my phone.

- Heather P

Do not buy one. GMC does not stand behind their products

It is a 2011, it has already needed a catalytic converter, fuel rail, fuel pump, new engine, etc. The engine is making noise again.

- rita k

It is a great small reliable SUV.

Reliable vehicle, great small SUV, comfortable, great backup camera. Had problems with a couple sensors but otherwise great vehicle.

- Melissa H

Great Vehicle that is Safe

I really like that it has XM radio. I don't like the fact that it doesn't have all powered seats. I do like the gas mileage it gets.

- Heidi F

Extremely comfortable to drive even on longer trips.

Vision through the rear and side is difficult parking. Storage space in back when seats are down is angled and would be better FLAT

- Ron S

It is safe and it is spacious.

Dislike: gas mileage/lack if speed/the seats with all the tiny holes. Like: everything else, the size, the feeling of safety, etc.

- Kate K

It handles wonderfully and is spacious and comfortable.

I love my car. It has enough room for my family and I love the comfort. I wish it was a color other than white and had a sunroof.

Very good gas mileage. Purchased with low mileage for the year. Comfortable seating in all areas. Color I've never owned before.
