An average small SUV for an everyday driver.

2011 Chevrolet Equinox LT w/1LT

The wiper blades are difficult to put on and take off. It burns oil so it needs to have oil added to it regularly. I love the size and the way that it drives. It's acceleration is better than Honda CR-V which is comparable to my car. It has served me very well for 100k miles but it does stutter sometimes when I turn it on and the engine has a rough idle as it has reached the 75k mark.

A roomy and comfy car but is did end up with some pretty large repairs.

2011 Chevrolet Equinox LT w/1LT

The car itself drives so smooth. It is roomy enough for travel and great for kids. The seats in the back lay down for extra space if needed. Driving long distance it is comfortable to sit. I did have a compressor go out that messed up my air. Then shortly after that I needed a new engine. Was about 8,000 in the end I am just thankful it was still under warranty!

- Erin E

Reliable vehicle for safety and financially conscious drivers.

2011 Chevrolet Equinox LT w/1LT

Vehicle has had few problems. Extremely reliable. Does not quite get the estimated fuel miles per gallon that was advertised. Claimed it got 32 mpg in city, but it's actually more like 27 mpg. No other vehicle problems to report. Excellent cargo space for a small family. Would recommend this vehicle for single people and small families.

- Stacey W

Excellent vehicle and experience.

2011 Chevrolet Equinox LT w/1LT

I have had an excellent experience with my Chevy equinox. Very little problems and updates that were covered by the warranty or fixed as part of a recall. Currently, I have more than 100k miles on the car and I have only replaced tires and battery in addition to standard oil changes and windshield wiper replacements. Excellent vehicle!

Motor issues with the 2007 through the 2012 Chevrolet equinox.

2011 Chevrolet Equinox LT w/1LT

I love it but it has motor problems which is common for the year model unfortunately. It is a problem for the 07 to the 2012 year models. They are made smaller now and are not near as roomy as the older models, which I hate BC I'd love to have a newer one but at the same time I want a little more room than I already have with my 2011.

- Christine D

Chevy SUV review. Problems and review.

2011 Chevrolet Equinox LT w/1LT

Had to replace a few things that were costly. Gm knows about these problems but still charges well over $1500.00 to fix them. Other than the problems I love my equinox. It would be nice to have the bigger screen for the back up camera. I would like the electronic seat setting so it would automatically set based on the driver.

- Connie P

4 cylinder so does not waste much gas with power of a 6 cylinder very roomy

2011 Chevrolet Equinox LT w/1LT

Great on gas, reliable, roomy but not too big for my 5'2 height. Great in snow and rain. I have had no problems at all. I absolutely love my equinox and will buy another when needed. I travel a lot and it has a lot of miles and still runs great. It does burn through oil fast but I also as I said travel a lot

- Tamara M

Would recommend for any family looking for an SUV

2011 Chevrolet Equinox LT w/1LT

We bought the Equinox new in December of 2010 and have enjoyed it very much. It's the perfect SUV for a growing family. It's spacious and gets good gas mileage. I would recommend it for anyone whose considering an SUV with a young family. We have taken it many vacations and other family trips.

- Forest R

Do not buy an equinox. Nonstop issues.

2011 Chevrolet Equinox LT w/1LT

Constant issues, recalls, sensors always go bad. Always something wrong. Have replaced multiple belts and sensors. Had to have pistons replaced. Oil consumption issues. Most work not covered by dealership but even covered recall issues are a hassle and inconvenient. Wish I never bought it.

- Tara F

The backup camera is a definite must.

2011 Chevrolet Equinox LT w/1LT

I've had no problems since I've owned this vehicle. The back-up camera is very helpful (It's. A must have on my next vehicle). OnStar allows me to diagnose the vehicle without having to go to a mechanic. Sirius is good for out of town trips and a different source or music.

Chevrolet 2011 Equinox- Charcoal Grey

2011 Chevrolet Equinox LT w/1LT

My Equinox uses a lot of oil. We frequently have to put more oil in it. Otherwise it is very reliable. I have never had anything go wrong with my current vehicle. I think Chevrolet is a very reliable and trustworthy brand. We have multiple cars by Chevrolet.
