Great Vehicle - Safe for winter driving.

2011 Chevrolet Equinox LT w/2LT

I love the AWD. During the winter, it is the best feature. My other favorite features are the heated seats and the auto start. My vehicle has over 130,000 miles. I've had to replace the brake pads, battery, tires, and alternator. Nothing unexpected or huge so far. The only thing I don't like is the Bluetooth only connects to my phone for calls, not music. But I believe they have added that feature in newer models.

My honest equinox review

2011 Chevrolet Equinox LT w/2LT

I have had my car for three years now and I have only had minimal issues. I have had to replace both of the front wheel bearings. Sometimes my fan for my heat and ac does not work. But the ac and the heat works fine. The timing chain is loose as well, but I was told that is extremely common in these cars. It is something that could break tomorrow or never break. Otherwise it has been a great car!

11 Chevy equinox seats are the most comfy and stylish with a simple red thread.

2011 Chevrolet Equinox LT w/2LT

So far I have had a pleasant experience with this car, great fuel mileage for an SUV and it's very spacious and the is very comfortable. My only downside is it seems to be showing a few transmission issues, not slips but lags. The dash panel lights are starting to burn out and I am going to figure out how to replace them myself, as bringing that to a shop is to expensive.

- Amy F

I love this vehicle if I could fix the idle issue.

2011 Chevrolet Equinox LT w/2LT

It has an idle issue. When you sit to long it tries to die. The unfortunate thing is that it could be 5 different things. I love the vehicle other than that. The gas mileage is great. I can put $20 in and drive all week. It's very roomy. I love the way it handles. It's a lot smaller than vehicles that I have driven in the past. Parking it is much easier.

- Carmen M

Great year for Chevrolet!

2011 Chevrolet Equinox LT w/2LT

I absolutely love my equinox. We also own a traverse same year and have had great rides with them. Of course it's had it's normal car issues but nothing out of the ordinary. We use our equinox for work and drive over 100 miles a day. We have never had any issues except transmission one time but it was a quick fix.

Automatic starter with a backup camera.

2011 Chevrolet Equinox LT w/2LT

It is really good on gas. It is AWD and it do really well on snow. It have a lot of back trunk space and the back seat is able to move forward all the way or backward, providing comfort leg space. The trunk also have a big space and the back seat also folded forward, given you additional spaces in the vehicle.

- Sarah T

I like the style of the equinox and I can't do without the back up camera.

2011 Chevrolet Equinox LT w/2LT

It seems like once one thing breaks more things are starting to happen to it. Once it reached about 90,000 miles is when the problems began. It's becoming very costly and not worth it anymore. I'm noticing that every equinox around my area has the same weird noise going on during startup.

- Maria W

Safe and reliable! Minimal work needed in the past 3 years of owning it.

2011 Chevrolet Equinox LT w/2LT

Remote start. Minor issues in the past 3 years. Throttle body went bad, but was covered under warranty. Decent gas mileage. Have taken on many road trips. Roomy, don't feel cramped at all. Safe. Has a lot of room for storage and groceries. Paint has held up well in salt and snow in Ohio!

- Celia W

Black, silver handles, beautiful interior, clean and edgy.

2011 Chevrolet Equinox LT w/2LT

Oil leak, transmission problems, window roll issues, AC is poor. Very comfortable, very smooth, very roomy, mostly reliable. No problems with the vehicle yet other then it dying in the middle of the freeway. Very basic features. No Bluetooth option but does have Sirius XM

- Shelby P

Beware of buying a used car.

2011 Chevrolet Equinox LT w/2LT

The equinox is a great SUV vehicle, although beware buying a used model you will run into problems, which is expected from used cars and trucks. My equinox has had airbag problems, and coolant leak problems, but other than that the car runs very smooth.
