I have had no problems with my Chevy Equinox.

I have had no problems with my Chevy Equinox. The vehicle runs well! We have had this vehicle for over 4 years! I love how it drives. This vehicle has been reliable for my family. I never have to worry about the car not starting or other issues as far as how the vehicle runs. The vehicle handles well. The seats are comfortable. There is room in the backseat to fit two people with a car seat. It is spacious. We use it for camping and transporting a lot of items. I love that we can get our bulk shopping done and still have a comfortable ride home. I love the towing package! It is like I have a truck without having a truck! Passengers always tell me how smooth the ride is and there is enough room with the seats. We based our decision to get this vehicle due to the consumer report. The Equinox rated high in performance and low in vehicle issues. Equinox has a great design, and looks. The mileage is fantastic for a crossover SUV. The navigation feature is user friendly and great just to see where you are and get traffic updates. The interior design makes you think you are in a much more expensive vehicle and handles really good. I feel extremely safe and comfortable in it. The amenities are bountiful when it comes down to it with the OnStar, Bluetooth, blind-spot mirrors, rear view camera, etc. This is a great crossover vehicle. I would recommend this vehicle to anyone looking for an SUV.

My fabulous white Equinox is called "the beauty" and does not look her age!

I love my Equinox. It drives wonderfully and is very good on gas. The seats are comfortable and has plenty of room for passengers in the front seat and the back. The cargo area is huge! When we first bought the car, it was used. The windshield wipers did not work, so my husband took them apart. A grommet in the wipers had worn out so he just replaced them with a bolt, nut and washers. They have worked wonderfully since. The no hands phone is my favorite and the fact that it, the radio controls are in the steering wheel make it a plus. The side mirrors have a defrost on them that make it a little easier on cold mornings. It has a rear back-up camera that makes backing into a parking spot or out of one wonderful especially since I am short and have a hard time looking over everything. I am totally loving this vehicle!

Why you should own a Chevrolet Equinox.

I have had no mechanical issues with the Chevrolet Equinox. I like it because the seat rises and moves forward. The back of the seat also comes forward to help support and rest my back. This enables me to see better while driving and especially parking and backing up. My husband is on a walker. He does not drive but it is easier for him enter and exit the automobile. It seats five easily and has room in the back for groceries and/or other items which I may need to haul. It drives smoothly, turns easily and does not take an enormous amount of space to turn or park. I have never had a problem with it starting, slowing down or stopping smoothly. Since the seat rises and lowers easily it better suited for me since I am only five feet tall.

- Gwendolyn M

2012 Chevrolet equinox very spacious and an easy drive.

My car is very spacious. I can make the trunk bigger by pulling the whole back row of seats forward or if I want my passengers to have more leg room I can move the seats back. It is very reliable as I have had almost no issues with the car in the 6 years that it has been driven by me and members of my family. Occasionally I have to put more oil in the car. The only problem I have with my car is that it takes a long time to accelerate but it has a 4 horsepower engine so that is expected. Other than that I love my car and would highly recommend it anyone who likes driving larger vehicles or to new drivers.

- Ally F

When we bought the car one of the reasons why we did was because it was ranking very high for safety.

I like the way the car rides- it's very smooth and comfortable and we got some extra bells and whistles like heated seats, remote start and automatic lift gate which all come in handy. The things I don't like Is that the visibility is not the greatest especially looking out to the sides in the back. This is trivial but the air vents should have been moved because the steering wheel blocks it when you are driving so you don't get as much of cold air conditioners as you should. Also, they should have put vents in the backseat because that does get stuffy.

- Mary D

Needs back seat air vents.

Overall the vehicle has been very good. I really like the way it drives and the seats are very comfortable. However, this year model does not have air conditioning vents in the back. This makes for a very hot summer. I have little ones in car seats and they do not get any air flow. I always feel really bad because I'll go to get them out of the car and their little heads are sweaty. This seems like such a small issue, however, I would not purchase this year model again. It is funny how important air conditioning is to my overall happiness.

- Kristen A

I would recommend the 2012 Chevrolet Equinox!

I love my Equinox. It has a lot of room for passengers in the back seats with plenty of legroom. Has plenty of room in back for transporting camping equipment. I like the in-dash navigation but wish it were easier to send locations to the navigation without using the app. That being said you do like the app its easy to use and convenient for when you lock your keys in the car. I do notice that when I go back and forth between our other car and the Equinox there is a lot of road noise. Overall it gets good gas mileage and I do like the car.

- Sarah A

Excellent in gas and an overall great vehicle.

My vehicle is incredibly reliable. I have owned it since 2012 and have had only minor issues with it. I keep up with routine maintenance. I have only had to replace tires, brakes, a windshield wiper motor, a Caliper, and spark plugs. I have put many miles on my vehicle but I take care of my car and have loved owning it. I would definitely recommend owning a Chevrolet Equinox as it is incredibly reliable and holds up excellent in snow. It does not slide in slick conditions and is fantastic on gas.

- Rebecca W

Sturdy and built tough the car for you.

The vehicle drives smoothly, air tight so you can hear music well, built strong and sturdy. It is reliable very comfortable. In an accident most likely you'll be able to drive off and not get towed. The car is roomy with great leg space. You can lift the back and carry a lot of things. Power everything and pretty much notifies you when you need to get things checked, you can see air pressure in each tire and it will tell if one is low, handles well and passengers will think it is a smooth ride.

- Val B

Black 2012 Chevy Equinox with seat warmers, XM radio and spacious interior.

My vehicle is a very comfortable riding car. I love the space I have inside and in the trunk. Gas mileage is decent for an SUV. I have always had issues with a sputtering noise and most recently the camshaft had to have some parts replaced. The backup camera does not beep when you are close to something and I wish the Bluetooth would work for music. It does work for phone calls. I love the look of the dash and the exterior of the vehicle. I do not feel like it looks like a 2012 model.

- Lindsey S

The SUV that can... Or maybe not.

Problems/reliability; car stalls randomly. I have looked it up and see this is a common problem with this vehicle, and they seem to be working harder on how to avoid taking care of their current car owners that it would take to fix the problem. Comfort/performance; mine is an ls, does not seem to have a lot of perks but it is good on gas, roomy, and good speakers. I previously had a Ford Explorer, more comfort, more perks, but it was terrible on gas.

- Barbara R

Chevy equinox, a great family car!

I never had a vehicle that was AWD. After getting my 2012 Chevy Equinox AWD I will never go back to not having an AWD vehicle. I feel safe in my vehicle. I love that I have a backup camera and satellite radio. It provides plenty of room for me and my family especially when it comes to traveling to and from sports and activities. I love that it has hands free calling which makes it easy to concentrate on my driving. I truly enjoy my Chevy Equinox.

- Annie M

It is a very reliable car sold by a good company.

I really love my car. It has get up and go power and it is very reliable. It is pretty decent in gas. The equinox is a nice looking car and is a great choice whether or not you have a family. The backseat is not small so you'll have room for your feet. On road trips this is a comfortable car. The seats are not super hard so this car has space and comfort all in one. The center console is not super small. It has am/FM radio.

- Samantha H

Chevrolet Equinox poor mechanics.

The Equinox seemed to be a good reliable car, but it ended up being the complete opposite. Everything is so crammed in there, just to change the alternator it took more than 25 hours of work at the mechanic. My cylinder went out and it would cost more than what the car is worth to replace it. Over 10 grand! So, I am just wait until it does completely and I'll not buy a Chevrolet again. They are not what they used to be.

- Jennifer T

Overall view for this car, is gas and keeping oil changed. Service regularly.

My Equinox is a dependable. It's good on gas, and oil. I keep my oil changed every 3 months and I get the utmost performance from it. As for it been economical on gas, I give it 100%. I have had no problems so far. I may spend $35- $45 dollars a week filling it up. Also its spacious and roomy. Comes in a variety of colors. I purchased her used, 2 years ago. As long as you take care of her she will take care of you.

- Christine H

Reliable comfort in a ride.

I really like the space inside the vehicle, you do not feel liked you are boxed in. I like that it has AWD so that I feel more secure driving in the winter months. I like how quiet it is to ride in, not a lot of road noise. The seats are a bit on the stiff side, but not bad at all. The one thing I noticed the most is it does not have very good gas mileage at all! I feel like I am filling up all the time!

- Holly S

The most attracting thing is the awesome interior.

Good on gas very reliable has excellent control starts up every day continues to drive on a daily basis no major problems nice ride very comfortable nice seats smooth steering never had any major problems with the car I would recommend this vehicle to anyone starts up every day transmission is smooth plenty of room in the back for groceries probably will buy another one in Chevy still makes it.

- Thomas B

Equinox review. I like the shift lever placement in the middle.

I really like my Equinox. It is a neat car to drive and handles well. I like the rear view parking feature and also use my side mirrors for backing up. It cleans easily and washes up very nicely. The gas mileage is okay and it is easy to fill with the passenger side fill up. The dashboard is easy to negotiate and the radio is easy to control. I definitely would consider buying another Equinox.

- Eileen R

Chevy equinox great family car!

This is a great car for a family. It is comfortable for 5. Safe for kids of all sizes. Plenty of room for cargo. I have over 100k miles and it still runs great! The Bluetooth connection is outdated, but it can still do handsfree. The engine has started making a humming sound but I think a new battery will solve that issue. Overall a great automobile that I would totally buy again.

- Kathryn O

The perfect family vehicle for a family of four.

My Equinox is the perfect fit for my family of four. It fits 2 car seats perfectly in the back seat with room in between for a smaller build person to sit. The font seats are heated which provides extra warmth during the cold winters and chillier days. The back end has a cover that I can pull so if someone is looking into my vehicle they can not see anything under that cover.

- Clancy T

The pros and cons of my Equinox.

It runs very well. When the oil needs to be changed it does make a rattling sound. It is very comfortable inside and spacious. I like that it has many options for entertainment to listen to. It has am/FM, Sirius XM capable, CD, and you can connect a USB and a port to listen from your phone. I do not like that the charging capabilities are not very good in the vehicle though.

- Sharon S

The ride is a little stiff but the highway miles per gallon is very good. About 29 m.p.g.at 62 to 65 miles per hour.

My wife and I purchased our 2012 Chevy Equinox new in November 2012..We use it to drive from northwest Illinois to south Texas in November and back to northwest Illinois in early April.It has enough room to haul everything to Texas and back. I drive between 62 and 65 m.p.h.on the drive to Texas and get 29 ,miles per gallon.The ride is a little stiff is my only complaint.

- David G

Why I bought a Chevy equinox.

The timing chain is the most common problem also oil levels become low this was a very expensive problem costing me around 2000$. I love the look inside and out some of the great features are a computer screen showing tire pressure. Oil levels, trip counts. Seats are very comfortable although the SUV doesn't look that big there is lots of trunk space and back seat room.

- Jessica K

It is a safe and reliable vehicle and I would definitely purchase again.

I love the gas mileage and that it is a sturdy vehicle and is able to handle many different types of weather conditions. I have had the car for several years and there really has not been many mechanical issues with the car. I wish the car was more updated, but that has to go with the age of the vehicle and I would prefer it have a signal when its low on fuel.

- Mary P

The brakes must be Chevrolet brakes or they will squeal all the time.

I purchased the vehicle used and have had constant problems since day 1. The check engine light comes on about once a week for various issues. The tire sensors don't work half the time and always tell me I have low tire pressure. Gas mileage is terrible. Unless you get the expensive Chevrolet brakes, they will squeal all the time. Worst car I have ever owned.

- Emily S

Chevrolet Equinox is a compact SUV with a lot of space.

I have an Equinox and l really have not any issues with my Equinox. Extremely good on gas. Its has leg room in front and the back seat. In the drivers passenger side l can massage my lower back. Meaning the lower back can adjust to how you want it to feel close up or not. The trunk has a lot of room. It can fix 4 extra large suitcases and my bulky wheelchair.

- Carla J

The ride is nice and the car is roomy.

This car is a great size for a family. It is very roomy and has great functional features. All of your buttons are easily accessible while driving. The back seat can be folded down for more room and the trunk is very spacious. My double stroller fits back their fine. Car rides are smooth and quite. Maintained on the care is always small and easy to fix.

- Asya C

Once you go Chevrolet you never go back.

This car is amazing no problems. Dependable, reliable, good on gasoline, very comfortable to drive, features are close at hand. I was raised with buying Chevrolet, s and quality is underpass med the best. All I buy is Chevrolet and always will. Other vehicles I am not trying because of my long future of the dependability I experienced growing up.

- Donna A

The Chevy Equinox is a good option for those seeking a roomy and rather inexpensive vehicle.

I am tall, and there is plenty of room for me to drive - more room than any vehicle I have ever been in. The handling and running of the car is just okay. It is great for a rather inexpensive car, but it doesn't run very smoothly, so if there are passengers that are prone to getting carsick, they probably shouldn't ride in this car for very long.

- Anthony B

My 2012 Equinox is so dependable that I have no good reason to buy a new one!

I would really love to buy a new Equinox, but I have a problem. There is absolutely nothing wrong with my current Equinox. It is so dependable. I never have an issue. It always starts, tells me when my tires are low or it needs an oil change. The seats are comfortable and the AC always works. So I'll be keeping the old girl for awhile yet.

- Mari P

Great interior but performance could be better

The main focus I was looking for when buying a car was the interior. I have a semi long drive and spend a lot of time in the car and wanted something that was nice. Performance wise it's had some issues. The entire engine had to be replaced at 60,000 miles and it's been through a few recalls. Definitely not the best when it comes to performance

- Shane F

A great AWD vehicle for one who needs room to pack it full or haul passengers.

Sure reliable care, great space when the seats are down in the back for traveling. Just wish the second row of seats would lay completely flat. Great 4WD for storms and wintery weather, I have survived several storms with this car. Leather is great and interior color of great on black, no blind spots or hard points to view while driving.

- Callie C

Chevy Equinox the stylish look with a smooth ride.

No problems with vehicle. More horsepower would be nice though. Car is very comfortable and I love the large display on the dash for radio and other accessories. Plenty of USB ports and cigarette lighters for charging adapters. Sleek design and stylish look. gives you the feel of a full size SUV with ample space and leg room.

- Juana S

It is a very safe and reliable vehicle.

No problems nice car runs great I love this car I just wished it was a little bigger other than that this a pretty nice car very reliable and affordable also is a safe car I would recommend this car for anyone as a first SUV it is also equipped with onstar and has a back up camera to prevent crashes when reversing.

- Joshua J

It's the perfect size for a single person or small family, and safe.

I love the size of it, it's perfect for me, it's bigger than a car so I feel safer driving it, and I love the sleek look of it. I dislike that sometimes when I push on the gas to increase speed, it's sluggish to respond, and when it does catch up you are speeding, and then you have to let off the gas to slow down.

- Shellby L

Great family car and road trips.

Great family car but wish it had a/c vents in the back for the kids and more phone friendly. Enough room for my two kids and our big dog for long trips. Has heated seat but once again wish they were in the back seats too. Great for trips we take up into the mountains, so far no trouble with steep incline drives.

- Jamie L

Its black roomy enough for a family of four. Good for travel.

Always having trouble with the oil not getting to the motor. Always jerking when you stop. Always replacing the camshaft. Haven't had it for more than a year and had to replace motor for windshield wipers. Check engine light stays on. Hard to crank when you drive and stop and start up again it start and stop.

- Felicia M

Large, roomy, very smooth, easy to keep clean, safe!

My car burns way too much oil way too fast. But other than that I love how much room we have for our family! The truck space is great for a day out shopping. We enjoy how easy the seats are too clean up after a spill from a two year old! It has lots of storage inside for your personal things and rides smooth.

- Ashley G

Great car for family with older children.

I haven't had any real problems with my Equinox, it is great on gas. I only thing is that I have to have a car seat for my 3 year old grandson & there is not a lot of space between where I have the car seat, in the middle in the back, and the middle console, he is always kicking it or putting his feet on it.

- Melissa W

My back up camera would be the only interesting detail of my vehicle.

When driving, it is super loud. Also when the air is on it makes a noise that only comes on when it is running. My sensors never go off and it is all been checked before. In my opinion, I will never buy another Chevy. I really regret that we bought that vehicle as a first auto buy together my husband and i.

- April M

Do not buy a Chevy Equinox at least a 2012 these were the worst vehicles made in that year

My vehicle has been in the shop for 3 major fixes luckily they were covered by Chevy so I didn't pay anything for those but now in the last 3 months I've replaced my resonates and something to do with the way the oil flows into the engine it's the Chevy Equinox 2012 the worst year built for these vehicles

- Anthony M

Motor and oil issues. don't buy.

Equinox has had a lot of issues. Rebuilt motor twice. Multiple problems. Dealer won't go good on motor after warranty runs out. Had to fight for help. This car has been known to eat oil. Have to use expensive kind of oil. I like the car as far as size and how it handles but will not go with Chevy again.

- Alison C

2012 Chevy Equinox - perfect smaller SUV

I love my 2012 Chevy Equinox! It is the perfect SUV while still remaining a relatively smaller vehicle. I have never had any problems with it. It is very comfortable. It has a good amount of trunk space. The backseat is roomy enough that two people can still sit comfortably with a carseat there as well.

- Desiree L

Great SUV with Good Miles per Gallon

Love having an SUV, I am tall and enjoy sitting up higher while driving. Had an issue with oil consumption but it ended up being covered in a recall. I wish the back end was shaped a little different the curves make it challenging when loading large items. I have the 4V which gets more Miles per Gallon

- Mellissa S

Regular maintenance is a must! Just like any vehicle.

My 2012 Chevy Equinox overall is a nice vehicle. It has its fair share of normal problems though. Regular maintenance is a must, just like any other vehicle. It runs well for being a 4 cylinder. Has the option for towing, but would not recommend unless something small. Comes with Onstar and XM radio.

- Amanda G

Lots of fun driving, have had lots of road trips which was lots of fun.

Ver reliable, fun and love it best car I have had in a long time. I would suggest this car to my family, friends. It's good on gas. I have gone on road trips and had lots of fun. The kids love the car also. If I had a dog I am sure he would love it to. Can pack lots of groceries in the car and trunk.

- Cody J

She is only the second car I have ever owned and had some big shoes to fill after I had my last car for 16 years. She is rocking it so far!

I love my vehicle. It is getting good travel mileage, it fits my family with plenty of legroom and it makes me feel safe. I would prefer a model that had a sunroof and heated seats but that wasn't in the budget. My only real complaint is that the way the heat works, it fogs the windshield quickly.

- Emily F

Family friendly and easy maintenance.

No big performance issues. Routine maintenance is all I have had to do. It is perfect for a family and pets. It is not too big and bulky so it is easy to drive and maneuver. It has a backup camera and Bluetooth drive features so you can talk handsfree. You can get XM radio. I really love the car.

- Nicole S

Equinox is a comfortable riding vehicle and smart looking.

This is my first Equinox. It is a great vehicle; both reliable and comfortable. Good value for the money. I would buy another Equinox. It’s a great mid sized SUV. Chevy offers lots of options on the equipment as well as colors. They had a body style change in 2018 which looks very aerodynamic.

- Gwen B

Good gas mileage for SUV.

Random service airbag alert that comes and goes. Comfortable seats, very roomy. Runs great for being 6 years old. XM radio right in the car is a great perk, as well as the OnStar button. Rear camera is very helpful and clear, though malfunctions occasionally when trunk is opened and then closed.

- Katherine O

No problems and do not expect any.

I do not think that I can use 250 characters to describe my car as I do not have had or expect to have any problems. We have approx. 60 thousand miles and have not had a single problem with it. ( I shouldn't say anything) when I am ready for a new car, I certainly would look for this same model.

- Robert S

Decent power for a 4 cylinder.

I've only had it for about a month. Still getting used to it. Only a 4 cylinder but so far good power. Also is AWD when I am used to front wheel drive so winter should be interesting. I am not short but can't see over the hood very well! So far it's a nice comfortable ride with good gas mileage.

- Rani B

2012 Chevy Equinox, looks handsome!

It is a very reliable vehicle. One thing we do not care for is it interior loud when driving on the highway. We have had no major expenses except of one tire goes bad you have to replace them all. Also do not care for if the back window is down and the front is up it make a very loud road noise.

- Karen S

2012 Chevrolet Equinox ls 4 door.

Has an oil leak that no one can seem to figure out. The exhaust is quickly degrading, and sounds like it is going to have a serious leak soon. The comfort is fairly standard for Chevrolet. The vehicle is fairly roomy, although with a car seat it is not very comfortable for 3 riders in the back.

- Erin M

Low maintenance, comfortable, good value.

The performance of my Equinox is as good as any other vehicle its size and style. It is comfortable for short driving as well as long trips. The gas mileage of my Equinox is about average compared to other vehicles of its style and size. My Equinox has had low maintenance since I have owned it.

- Ann L

This vehicle has a lot of blind spots, it's very spacious, but I cannot say it's extremely safe. I went through the car wash and the top of the roof was bending in with the air dryer. So I'm not sure it was made completely with families in mind. Overall it's a great vehicle.

I like that my air conditioner blows hard, but it is a bit too loud. I dislike that my back window has a small gap in between the rubber so I cannot take it to a car wash. I love that the steering wheel has audio toggle buttons. I dislike that in this heat my steering wheel is shedding rubber.

- Rayleen m

Great gas mileage and good looks.

Size and style are important. Solid ride and good gas mileage. Start up no problem always really looks good. 110, 000 miles on it and it drives just like I bought it. The service is always done at the same dealer. That includes oil changes and new tires. I highly recommend the Chevy Equinox.

- Lambert G

Perfect for family or single person use!

I think my Chevrolet Equinox is the perfect vehicle. I love that it is fit for a family or single person use. My favorite feature about the car is the heated seats and automatic opening trunk. Makes it so easy to load and unload your vehicle. I would highly recommend this vehicle to anyone!

- Ashley R

Roomie! Comfortable! And oh so reliable!

Very reliable. Have not had one problem since purchased. Has an amazing amount of room, car seat in the back seat and can still have the passenger seat pushed the entire way back. Room enough for a family of 5 to fit comfortably, and the cargo area fits a stroller along with all groceries.

- Melinda H

The Chevrolet Equinox rocks.

Pro: I love the room my Equinox provides. It gets great gas mileage considering the size. The back up camera and XM feature is a bonus. It has great horsepower and rides very smoothly. I have yet to have any major issues with it. Con: the Equinox seems to burn oil more than other vehicles.

- Jennifer E

Stylish. Comfortable. Decent gas mileage. Good in snow.

My car has 61k miles and has been very reliable. I am told it needs new brakes in the near futures. The rear tailgate can be adjusted to various heights which was a selling point at purchase. The car gives a very smooth ride. I love the heated leather seats. The car comfortably seats five.

- Marvin K

Excellent vehicle for our purposes. Low maintenance, good mileage, adequate room for luggage, groceries, and most other needs. Very good view for the driver. Back-up camera is really nice.

This car has been worry free, the only expenditures on it have been normal maintenance items, like oil changes. Mileage is good, about thirty mpg on the highway. It has about 55000 miles on the tires, with still a lot of wear to go. I like the roof racks, using them for a car top carrier.

- Scott D

It's always dirty because of my kids! Or that it's a good family good. I've heard Chevy make some changes to the 2015 and newer years of the equinox so I would recommend if someone is going to buy an equinox it be at least a 2015.

I have two kids and this vehicle provides a good amount of space for all of us and the mileage seems to be good for an suv/crossover. However unfortunately the maintenance and mechanically issues I've had with this car make me highly dislike it. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone else.

- Stephanie M

It's a very safe and reliable car.

I love the way it looks and I think that it's very spacious for the vehicle type. I think it has a distinctive appearance and is unique from other cars of its type. I wish that it had a third row so that it could continue to grow with our family, and I wish there was more trunk space.

- Nikki H

Reliable, comfortable and a good value. I would recommend this car.

The stereo is too loud in the front and the a/c does not reach the back seat. The seats are very comfortable. The controls are easy to reach. I love using the Bluetooth for hands free driving. It has been great for traveling with my family. I even moved across the state with my Chevy.

- Maria W

What a great vehicle. Drives great and very economical.

This vehicle is very economical the seats are very comfortable it gets good gas mileage. OnStar is great. This car has a lot of room in it. This car is a beautiful gray color the hatch on the back is so easy to lift up and put down. I really love this vehicle it is so nice to drive.

- Julie L

Pay for the extra features.

Is fine for shorter trips. Ride not as smooth as our trailblazer. Very basic model, knowing this now would have spent extra to get more features such as power seats, better speaker system, and heated seats. Good gas mileage, plenty of space inside. Love the hands free phone feature.

- Lisa N

Equinox: a perfect vehicle for a mid-size family.

The Equinox is a fantastic vehicle. Enough room for our family of 4 and lots of room for storing groceries, luggage, etc. It is the perfect size, not to small and not to big. I love the auto-start function. Helps the make the car warm when it is cold out and cold when it's hot out.

- Travis T

This is a great SUV with lots of extra little luxuries.

I love the backup camera. I love that I can connect my phone to the car and play my music through it. I love the eco mode to save on gas. It is very roomy and a drives very smoothly. I like the 911 and on star options it. I love that I can speak on my phone through the car as well.

- Tracy G

A fabulous car that is versatile and will work for any family.

Inconsistent gas mileage, need frequent oil changes, overall a really great car. Very roomy inside and out. For the year, it is very technologically advanced. Great radio, wish it had Bluetooth. Drives like a beautiful car. Steering is great and the overall experience is wonderful.

- Maximus J

2012 Chevrolet Equinox review.

The Chevy Equinox has been a great vehicle for most of the time I have owned it. Comfortable to drive and ride in, plenty of legroom in the second row, nice amount of cargo room. After hitting 100, 000 miles however, we are noticing more issues with the battery life and engine.

- Lina S

This is a good- looking reliable vehicle with no problems.

Our Equinox is very reliable. We have not had any problems with it. Gas mileage is reasonable. It is a very nice looking vehicle; paint and appearance has remained very nice. I wish it was just a little larger, other than that I have no complaints at all about this vehicle.

- Alice W

2012 Chevrolet Equinox ltz 4 door.

I had problems with the engine at the beginning due to miscommunication by the dealer regarding frequency of oil changes. Dealership acknowledged error and made all repairs.. Even after warranty.. Free of charge other than that, the car has been very reliable & easy to drive.

- Sheri S

It is very sturdy. Whether people, luggage, or plants it accommodates all.

My Chevy Equinox has been a good cross between a car and SUV. It is very comfortable to drive. legroom is very good. We have traveled long trips with 4 people and are still talking to each other. Wish the gas mileage was better but I be heard the newer one are gas efficient.

- Sherry S

It is white, it has dark interior, I like taking it on road trips.

I like my car because it has good gas mileage and drives smooth. It is comfortable and I can store a lot in the car. I do not like that my brake pads have gone out multiple time since I started driving it and I haven't put that many miles on it. I like the color of my car.

All wheel drive in the state I live in.

Rebuilt engine, reliable, fun to drive, good gas mileage, very comfortable, love the color, fold down back seat allows me to haul my animals around. Back camera allows me to keep me from backing into someone. I love the all wheel drive in the winter in the state I live in.

- Nancy A

I was hit head on and my car totaled, and walked away with very minor injuries.

I haven't experienced any problems with my Equinox. It is a very reliable and safe vehicle to drive. Chevrolet also has excellent customer service. The gas mileage is good for an SUV. I highly recommend the Chevrolet Equinox for anyone looking for a safe, dependable ride.

- Hannah R

Sleek interior and exterior design and highly reliable.

No problems, very spacious and comfortable. Has great electronic features like hands free calling. The audio in this car is wonderful. Sleek interior and exterior design. Not loud on the inside due to road noise. Backup camera is clear and very accurate. Highly recommend.

- Ellen E

Good quality vehicle for the price.

Quality of structure and interior is great. There is Bluetooth for calls but not for music. However there is a USB and AUX port(s). Easy to drive and handle. Blind spots above right and left rear bumper. I would like to see better gas mileage, I average about 20 in city.

- Hannah S

Great, comfortable family car.

Drives really good & smooth. Car is very reliable & haven't had problems with the car, just the typical service needs. The back seat is very roomy, so tall people would be okay with the leg room. The back up camera is a really nice feature to check the back surroundings.

- L G

Random title of a description.

Actually it isn't my car its my moms car. I like driving it that's all I can say about it really you want 250 characters to describing something that is not mine it's a reliable car very dependable good on gas and cool sleek & sassy wow seriously wanna long description.

- Yolanda H

I love my Equinox you should try one.

I love the amount of room in it. The gas mileage is awesome. I have never experienced major problems. I had to have wheel barriers replaced. The warranty covered all the cost. I have it serviced on the regular schedule. I would recommend it to anyone. I love my Equinox.

- Jane W

A smooth ride with little effort.

The car can sometimes be a little rustic. The air conditioner does not always work up to my standards. The vents in the front seat are also covered by the steering wheel which sucks during the hot months. The car overall is amazing and was worth the price I paid for it.

- Kaitlyn J

Economical Chevy Equinox-gets good gas mileage.

It gets good gas mileage. It is economical. It is comfortable and good for our size of family. It gets around well in the snowy winter weather. The seat covers are very durable and wear very well. I like that it has cruise control and a CD player, and an AUX cord port.

- Lori S

Awesome SUV. Great mileage.

Great truck. Drives well. Very comfortable and safe truck. I would definitely recommend this vehicle to my family and friends. I've taken many trips with this vehicle and have had zero problems at all during any of them. It also gets great gas mileage city and highway.

- Mark A

It drives great and vans get a bad rep but they are pretty sweet.

I like that it is very spacious and I can fit a lot of stuff in it. I like the cloth seats and the overall look of the car. However, the several bind spots in the car can make it hard to drive sometimes. My major complaint would be the amount of blind spots in the car.

- Tori G

It drives nice and gets good gas mileage and it a good size vehicle.

I like it because it is a good size vehicle for me and my little boy. It also gets us where we need to be. But it has had some mechanical issues that a lot of chevy's have been coming in with and the company hasn't done a recall so I had to fork out 1400 in repairs.

- Jennifer M

I love driving my Chevy Equinox.

I love the size. It is perfect for road trips because it is spacious, comfortable and drives smoothly. The air conditioner cools and heats very fast. I have never had any major problems with it. I never have to worry about if my car is going to break down or anything.

- Lauren G

This vehicle is the most comfortable I have ever owned.

The engine has a hard time propelling the car up mountains, but otherwise can go decently fast. The vehicle has the best gas mileage out of any vehicle I have owned, is extremely comfortable, and came with the roomiest center console I have ever seen in a vehicle.

- Kaitlyn D

Nice size and very reliable.

It's a great car only complaint is the back seat wont lay flat down so you can't fit everything you want in the back. Oh and first gear is weird when you are accelerating. Besides that car drives great. Isn't to bad on gas and is pretty reliable for being a 2012.

- Samantha W

Great family car for the money.

My vehicle is very reliable, it gets great gas mileage for an SUV. It has the perfect amount of space if you have a smaller family, I would not recommend it to someone who plans to have more than two kids as it can become cramped with three kids in the back seat.

- Blake G

we love our 2012 chevy equinox!

we absolutely love our vehicle it has great space and great gas mileage it provides a reliable source to and from work and to and from events have had the vehicle for 3 years and only had one small issue with the crank sensor other than that it's been wonderful!

- chelsea D

The Equinox is the way to go.

The Equinox is a very durable SUV. It has a back up camera which I truly love, push to start also comes in handy in the winter, it's a very clean looking SUV inside and out. Good on gas for the most part begin a SUV. Adjustable mirrors. It's a great SUV overall.

- Chanel K

I can use ethanol fuel in my car, which makes me feel really good about burning something cleaner to reduce my carbon footprint.

I love that my vehicle has flex fuel and I can use ethanol gas. It gets pretty good mileage, has comfortable seats and I love the color, which is a pearly tan. I do wish it was a little bigger, I has a Murano that was really roomy and now sometimes I miss that.

- Sarah K

Bluetooth, leather seats, sunroof/moonroof, aluminum wheels, navigation system.

I really love my Chevy Equinox. It is gives great mileage and it is extremely reliable for me and my family. I love the leather heated seats and the power lumbar adjustment for the driver seat. I would recommend this vehicle to anyone who is looking for an SUV.

- Felicia B

If you are short, be cautious when approaching intersections because the mirrors can hide a vehicle.

I am pleased with the Equinox because it has been very reliable and economical. It is comfortable and useful when we have grandchildren with us because it is roomy. My only complaint is that I have trouble seeing over the outside mirrors because I am short.

- Frances W

Decent, reliable family vehicle.

It has a couple of really odd blind spots. It is roomy enough. The back has enough room for a decent Costco trip. We haven't had any major issues with it except that it seems to go through oil really quickly. Haven't figured out exactly why that is happening.

- Kristen N

High oil consumption and bad engine.

This year of Equinox has known engine problems but Chevrolet does not recall them. It has a high rate of oil consumption. I have already had to have the engine replaced. It blew out after 52000 miles. And it had regular oil changes and maintenance done on it.

- Amy S

the vehicle is great on gas. and tells me my gas mileage as I go

I just bought this car used. I really enjoy this car . it has a lot of options including the remote start auto roll down windows on all the windows, touch screen bluetooth moonroof, I'm still learning all the things about the car but I really enjoy having it.

- shanna s

Good vehicle with one sensor issue.

It is a generally good car, it works well in all weather. I did have an issue with the sensors where my car would randomly shut off while I was driving. This would usually happen when stopped at a light trying to turn then shut off in the middle of the road.

- Avery W

The air con still works pretty well.

It is not as reliable as I'd like it to be, there have been several instances where it is battery has run out of battery. The paint on the hood of the car has started to come off and not only that the brakes have started to not be as good as they once were.

- I A

Reliable, safe, and trendy vehicle!

I absolutely love this vehicle! The only problem I have had is replacing the solenoids as this is apparently common with this type of motor for the year of my vehicle. However I have been told that the problem has since been corrected on the newer engines.

- Jennifer S

Vehicle is a great small family vehicle but it will not be great for multiple kids.

I love the heated leather seats and sunroof. The touch screen radio is nice and the height of the vehicle is a nice level for me. The engine does make a weird noise and I wish it had better gas mileage. I wish the trunk was intended some for more storage.

- Kayla D

Blue lights give it an interesting nightly glow! It has a cute appearance.

Love my vehicle! It has nice cold air, great safety features and even has a touch radio! It features a big backseat and trunk space! It has automatic windows as well as seats! Great gas mileage! My everyday driver to and from school about 100 miles daily!

- Haley P

Best affordable small SUV.

This is my dream car. Great cargo space, amazing gas mileage, and low maintenance. The only minor downside is the small turn radius. It also has an eco mode to save gas. Which I love. It lets me know when I need an oil change by use of a percentage icon.

- Michele L

That it's safe and rides very smoothly.

I bought this brand new as it was stylish design with a lot of room for traveling. It is great for long distance gas mileage. It rides smoothly. The only thing I dislike is the helicopter type sound when one window is down and the others are up.

- Brent M

It is very safe for families.

I love how safe it is for my family and the way it drives. The trunk is big enough for carriages and groceries. It is got a decent amount of room though eventually I would like to upgrade to a larger vehicle. I don't really have any complaints.

- Michele G

It is a great family car. It fits our needs with two children, a dog, and a cat for any outing.

-Dislike the air venting to the backseat for passengers (freezing in the front when they are still hot) -Large pillars create blind spots when looking for oncoming traffic/pedestrians -Lots of room (seats fold down; fits carseats in backseat)

- Betsy P

Sporty with safety and comfort in mind.

The Chevrolet Equinox is a great choice. It packs a punch with style. It is sporty and comfortable to drive and ride in and has all the features that you want in a family car. It has decent gas mileage. And, it has plenty of safety features.

- Tamara D

More space and convenience needed.

I think my vehicle is of high enough acceptance and quality. My family has double in size and I must find a vehicle with more seating and cargo room. I would like more surround control of heat and air, speakers, and if possible cup holders.

- Tracy Y

Excellent vehicle. I like the roof top racks, for mounting a car top carrier.

This car is 6 years old, and we have had no problems with it. The only time we have put money into it was just routine maintenance, like oil changes, tire replacement ( 1 flat ire) we have enjoyed having a practically maintenance free car.

- Scott D

We feel safe when driving it.

I love how the vehicle handles. I love that there is plenty of room for our growing family. And just enough room for groceries. And we love the height it is off the ground... it doesn't feel like we are sitting on the road when driving.

- Megan B

It is a perfect family car it fits two car seats diaper bags and stroller very nicely!

I love my equinox so much it fits my two sons two huskies a stroller my husband and I nicely it is the perfect size not to big so it fits in parking spots nicely and not to small where we are squished in. It has nice gas mileage 21 MPG.

- Cassy S

It does not have a strong engine so it is slow to pick up but great gas mileage.

The check engine light has been on for almost two years, the transmission is beginning to slip, the car battery overheated and had to be replaced. Overall over the last 3 years it has been a very dependable car with good gas mileage.

- Samantha N

It has been very reliable for us. The trunk is spacious and the seats are conveniently adjustable.

The vehicle is very comfortable. Rear view camera makes parking easy. I wish now that we has purchased a vehicle with 3 rows. The back seat is not very large and since we have 2 car seats, there isn't room for anyone else to sit.

- Emily D

It is a reliable vehicle that I have always been able to count on

Great, comfortable ride, reliable and attractive. There have been no recalls but I had an issue with the factory paint job where large sections of paint came off on the roof and I had to pay for a partial paint job, thus 4 stars

- Sandy E

The AWD is great in the snow. I had no issues this past winter

One of the best vehicles I have had for the snow. I like the back up camera and touchscreen radio. I like that my radio controls are mounted on steering wheel. I like my remote start. It is a little too small for my family of 5

- Joanne M

Be very careful turning right, the front window area is so large it's hard to see the curbs and anything up on the sidewalks. With a backup camera, some cars/SUVs show right turns on the screen.

It's an Equinox that has plenty of room for two people. The gas mileage is respectable and the ride is smooth. It doesn't have a back-up camera and I would love to have one for safety reasons. Other than that it's a good car!!!

- tom l

It does not hold its value. I paid more than the car is worth.

This is a good reliable car, however just like any car it needs maintenance. Had to replace the camshaft sensor. The power seat on the driver's side front seat doesn't work anymore. Electrical wiring all wrong in my opinion

- Lesley H

It is American made of good quality.

I really love my Chevy equinox because it is economical on gas, it is sporty, drives smooth, bought new and have had absolutely no problems mechanical wise. If I have to buy another car I would choose a Chevy equinox again.

- Phyllis H

Great Family Car, just do your research first!

Very specious, good gas mileage for being an SUV. Have had oil consumption issues, brake issues and then engine will make louder noises at time. Like the car itself but most likely would purchase something else next time.

- Michelle M

Spacious, comfortable, and drives well.

I love the space of my Chevrolet Equinox. I drives well also. The only flaw is when the rear hatch motor quit working and would not stay open and we had to replace it out of pocket because the warranty did not cover it.

- Danielle J

The seats are heated and very awesome to sit on when It's less than 30 degrees F outside.

I like that the seat is adjustable but in order for me to reach the pedals (and I have long legs) I'm right up against the steering wheel. If I ever get in an accident and that airbag goes off, it will likely kill me.

- Nancy F

Not only my car but Chevrolets are the most dependable vehicles on the road!

I love my Chevrolet Equinox. This is the longest I have ever owned a vehicle. The only thing is I would love to own a is newer model with all the newest accessories like wifi especially! I will always own a Chevy!!!

- Carlund W

Would recommend Chevy Equinox

Drives well and is very comfortable in any seat. touch screen and satellite radio features are very nice. my only issue is that it is a 4-cylinder so it doesn't have the best get-up-and-go when you sometimes need it

- sarah y

It is reliable and safe; the consumer ratings are good.

It is very reliable and comfortable. I have not had issues with my car, and I have had it for almost five years. The only thing I would mention is that it has slow pick-up. But, overall, this is a great family car.

- Alexis L

Faulty electrical system can cause a problem starting the car or keeping it on.

I like the roomy inside and that I am far enough off of the ground to see around me. I like the back-up camera but I wish it had a color gauge for when I was backing up. I also dislike the faulty electrical system.

- Rene O

It's a reliable vehicle. Other than normal maintenance and routine wear and tear, it's in great shape.

It gets decent gas mileage for a SUV and is comfortable. My biggest complaint is when I have to have the battery or alternator replaced, it costs a small fortunate because of where they are located in the engine.

- Laurie C

My car is very comfortable for both me (the driver) and passengers.

Reliable, with a high degree of fit and finish. It has an aggressive stance from the front, front 3/4, and side, but looks like a minivan from the back. It features excellent red stitching with the black interior.

- Harry F

Vehicle has an app and app can notify you with any problems with the vehicle.

Spacious vehicle with a lot of trunk space and is really comfortable. Great features with onstar and Bluetooth also with USB connection and navigation system. Some features can be controlled with steering wheel.

- Brian G

It has a lot of room for bags and suitcases for making long trips. And plenty of leg space for 4-5 passengers.

I love the way my vehicle handles. Very easy to drive and the brakes are good. The seats are comfortable and the exterior look is great. The only thing I dislike is the miles to gallon could be a little better.

- Mike C

It's a comfortable ride, with onstage plus it's good on fuel/mileage.

My vehicle has over 150k miles and i have experienced several issues such as the air conditioner stopped working & the back hatch no longer opens properly. Besides that I love the look and comfort of my car.

- Catrice R

The glories of our car, nicknamed “noxie”.

Our car is very comfortable to drive as well as being a passenger. We have gotten an average of 25 mpg over the 6 years. Transitions to carry cargo easily. No major mechanical problems. Leg room is very good.

- Debbie H

It is fun to drive. It has really good acceleration and gets really good gas mileage. Plus it has a lot of storage space.

I like the interior space of the car. I wish I had purchased a newer model than used because the connectivity options in the newer models is much better than mine. I would definitely but again in a newer year

- Tiffany G

It gets good very good gas mileage and I like the feel of the steering wheel.

The Equinox gets good gas mileage. I do not like the vents and the leather seats (they are very stiff and uncomfortable). I also think the side windows seem like they are not big enough to see very well.

- Sharon S

Gets good gas mileage - unless you use E85. The engine loves E85 but sucks it down like mad. Gas mileage goes from 26 - 30 per gallon, to less than 20 miles per gallon with E85. Don't get me wrong. I the cost of E85 is 50 cents or more less than regular gas, then it is cost effective.

The vehicle was purchased without any knowledge of what a Equinox was. We love it. In the past 6 years, we have put 110,000 miles on the car with very little maintenance requirements. Complaints: None!

- Robert F

It has a smooth ride. The seating is comfortable. Expect repairs routinely if you own one.

I dislike that I have had significant ongoing repairs needed since I purchased it. I am glad I got the warranty! I like the fuel mileage and the fact that it can use alternative fuel. It uses too much oil.

- Sara G

I think I can, but only sometimes.

The car stalls randomly, it does not matter if it is warmed up or not, in motion or a stand-still. I have researched it, Chevrolet knows about it, and has done nothing to impress any of us equinox drivers.

- Barbara R

My vehicle is reasonably priced and reliable.

I love the color and sleek look of my vehicle. I like the gas mileage although I'd prefer if it was better. I like that info displayed IN the dashboard as well. I wish the seat adjustment was electronic.

- Jamie C

So much room! A reliable vehicle for my family!

I absolutely love my Chevrolet Equinox! I get great mileage and have so much room, especially in the back seat and back hatch! My Equinox has been extremely reliable and is a great fit for my family!

- Brittany G

It gets great gas mileage.

It is a great sized care for a family of 4. You can travel and take stuff, it will pull a light camper. It gets good gas mileage. We've had trouble with the engine eating oil for no apparent reason.

- Lynette F

It takes e85 gas and that is much cheaper to purchase

The only complaint I have about the car is the fm radio doesn't work.. The heating and air system seemed to be crossed too but no one seemed to be able to fix the problem. I love the way it drives.

- karen a

It handles well and will last a long time if properly maintained (regular oil changes and tire rotations)

It's paid for! Drives good. I've kept it maintained so it's in great shape. Now that I have 2 kids, it's a little small. Not much truck/storage space for groceries, strollers, even short trips.

- Yam C

It's a great vehicle and roomy for families! We love it!

I love my equinox and have not had any major issues with it. It's currently 6 years old and I plan on driving it as long as possible. It still looks and feels nice and has held up well with travel.

- Michelle S

It's a good vehicle for the cost, has been dependable.

I like it because It's easy to operate and park, gets decent gas mileage, the right size for our family and affordable. what I dislike is that there are many blind spots and It's hard to back up.

- darlene M

My car is black with leather interior

I have had my car for almost five years and I love it! I haven't had any problems with it. I love my seats in my car they are very comfortable and doesn't hurt my back when I drive long distances.

- Madison S

That it is very reliable and a great family car. It is spacious inside and has lots of room.

I got my car only 2 years ago but since I have had it I have put a lot of miles on it and it has been so reliable. I like how it fits all my kids in the back and has a back extra room for extras.

- Jessica B

Great for families with kids and pets, plenty of room!

The thing I like most about my Chevy is how dependable it is day in and day out . Only thing I would improve on is the fact all the doors are rusting in the exact same spot bottom of the door .

- Bryant C

The riding and handling of the car is good, it's an overall pretty smooth drive.

I don't have any complaints about the car. It drives well and I use it to get to and from- there's not much I dislike about it save for the things that've been my doing. It's a pretty good car.

- Ami C

Gas mileage is 30 miles per hour and very comfortable ride.

Drives and rides comfortable, no issues good gas mileage a 30 miles per hour. Back seat with movable seat has extra legroom and headroom. Front seat has lots of head room for driver in and out.

- Mary G

This car is a dependable buy that I enjoy driving.

This vehicle is fairly reliable, easy to park, and has an efficient temperature control system. I also enjoy the plethora of sound options, from the AUX cord to a CD player to Sirius XM.

- Riley S

It is a reliable vehicle that runs well and gets a good gas mileage.

I like the color of my vehicle and how it looks. It has worked well for me so far with no major problems or repairs needed. Sometimes I do wish the engine had more power than it does.

- Heather H

A comfortable driving SUV.

The turning radius is not good but that is really the only negative. It has great room inside for our two large dogs. The gas mileage is good. It drives very well and is comfortable.

- David S

It is very spacious inside for growing families.

I love how spacious it is inside for my growing family. I love that it feels like it's a car but is a SUV. I don't like the quality of the engine, I have had problems since day one.

- Dawn N

2012 Chevy equinox review

The Chevy equinox drives really nicely. The engine lags behind sometimes which can be a problem on the highway. I also have had a lot of issues with oil leakage but Chevy fixed it.

- Abby P

That it has blind spots where the front windshield.

It has some serious blind spots but other than that I love it. Love the backup camera. The room in the trunk area is very spacious. Like the radio controls on the steering wheel.

- Alicia P

My Chevy equinox is very reliable and comfortable.

Very reliable and durable. Have taken many road trips and never been stranded. I do not like the expensive parts and tires that it needs because it is a more expensive equinox.

- Amy L

I like it because I'm short and the seat raises and I can see over the hood

it is a 2012, has comfortable seat, has good air conditioning unit and good heater, my family tells me it goes good in the snow I don't drive in the winter gas mileage is okay

- Darlene D

Low maintenance transmission, that has no check stick. It has all wheel drive.

I like .it has all wheel drive, a sunroof, Bluetooth & navigation system. I don't like that it doesn't tell me when my oil is low. There is now way to check transmission fluid.

- Debbie M

Very reliable car that has had no issues at all.

This vehicle is extremely comfortable, spacious and reliable. I have had no problems with it in six years, probably because I have taken care of all preventative maintenance.

- Rodney G

Great performance and reliability!

My car drives really well, it is comfortable, and seems to perform well in most weather conditions. It is very reliable making it a car I would recommend for any car buyers.

- Jim W

Gets good mileage and has OnStar and Sirius radio.

I love it. It has everything I need and the size is just right. I love the cd and radio. Very nice quality. My two dogs fit nicely in the back seat. And the mileage is great.

- Joanne N

It's a great car for my family and has always been dependable

I like the look and the space that it provides. I feel that the gas mileage is pretty good for the size and capacity. It seems that recently it might be burning a little oil

- Franklin w

It gets great gas mileage.

It is the perfect size. Great gas mileage. It is a very pretty color. Very smooth driving with a lot of pep for a 4 cylinder. The only thing I wish I had in it is a sunroof.

- Tina W

It is a small SUV that has good gas mileage but poor sightlines.

I like the gas mileage and it drives smoothly. I do not like that it feels small on the inside. The windows are small and it feels cramped. There are not good sightlines.

- Coral W

Decent SUV for small family

I love the height, easy to get in and out. Decent features like rear camera, push button tailgate, built in navigation. Acceleration is slow because it's only a 4 cylinder.

- Katy S

Its reliable. Looks great and great on gas mileage.

I like that it is easy to maintain; I have no major service repairs done on it yet. I dislike that it does not have very good gas mileage and the pick up on it is terrible.

- Tiffany B

Constant issues before 100k miles.

O-rings, timing chain bad before 100, 000 miles. Timing chain and transmission issues about 100, 000 miles. Car �jumps� / �lunges� when holding brake at stop sign.

- Rita R

Extremely reliable and great for small family

It is reliable very comfortable. Could have a little better gas mileage for the V6. Easy to use and reach features. Has some duplicate features but over all best purchase.

- Heather C

It has a lot of space in all seats and its comfortable.

Even though it is a slightly older vehicle it works well and I have not had many problems. The only problem I have had is with my windshield wipers but it was an easy fix.

- Avery W

Don't get one with a 4 cylinder engine. I wish I would've researched better. Hate this car.

Ok vehicle for a single person, but I wish it was bigger to use for a family. Very crammed inside with two car seats and the engine sucks. Who puts a 4 cylinder in an SUV?

- Heather M

The different electronic features that the vehicle offers.

I love the body style of my vehicle as well as the fact that it provides the perfect amount of space for my family. It is also very stylish and provides excellent features

- Laura C

AMERICAN MADE SPORTS UTILITY VEHICLE. DEPENDABLE, GOOD GAS MILEAGE. I LOVE IT.

- CHARLENE E

It gets good gas mileage and is very dependable.

I like the cargo space. I like the fuel economy. I have the 4 cylinder engine and wished I had the 6 cylinder for more power. Other wise I am very pleased with this car.

- Robert M

It's not been a very good running vehicle. Always needs to be worked on.

I don't like cup holders interior is uncomfortable and have had a lot engine and problems with electronics that make it run. I like the look and the gas mileage it gets.

- Jennifer A

Comfortable, roomy, and smooth.

Great vehicle. Has eco mode for better gas mileage. Confidante in the back door adults and kids. Great space in the back with seats that find down to fit a lot of stuff.

- Angel M

That it's very reliable and has yet to break down or need any maintenance with exception of oil changes and such

I like that it has remote start. That was the selling point. I love the spacious back and front seat and it is very reliable. I would like to have heated seats next time

- Katie M

DRIVES GREAT AND IS VERY COMFORTABLE. GREAT CROSSOVER.

MY EQUINOX HAS BEEN GREAT SINCE WE GOT IT. THIS SIZE FIT ALL OUR NEEDS.WE TRAVEL A LOT AND LUGGAGE IS NOT A PROBLEM.BUT THE BEST OF ALL IT HAS NOT GIVEN US ANY PROBLEMS.

- MYRA M

Good quality suv. low maintenance. good on gas.

I feel there are blind spots in the front half of the suv. i have to look around the large divider of the door. but i do like the review camera. and anti lock brakes.

- Mary k

A lot of issues with the engine. I would not recommend buying this make,model,year.

Vehicle is great on gas mileage. I had a lot of issues with the engine, pistons,manifold,fuel pump etc. However, it was covered under warranty and has since been fine.

- Michael M

I like the interior and the touch screen radio.

I love the look of it!! The only problem is seems like it burns oil and has trouble starting. When I take it to the garage they can never find anything wrong with it.

- Paula K

My car is a really safe car with side airbags

I like that my car is big enough to hold my family. I like the hands free call system. I do not like there is not enough trunk space. It's also not that great on gas.

- Holly O

The most important thing is that it's safe and great on gas.

I like the reliability of my vehicle. I also like it's fuel economy and Bluetooth features. The main downfall is the size. As my kids get older, I need more space.

- Danielle E

It has has a new engine put in. New pistons, new shaft

I love the size of the SUV. It drives well. I dislike the fact that I know there are recalls out of it making it feel less reliable. I don't know if i'd buy again.

- Chels M

Comfortable and Economical

Comfortable to drive and good fuel economy for a mid size SUV. I am especially happy with the safety ratings as I regularly have my 6 year old in the car with me.

- Ruth J

Low mileage 2012 Chevy Equinox

This vehicle is a smooth ride even after six years of use. Great on gas mileage, has cruise control, power seats, power windows and a Pioneer premium sound system.

- Melvin C

There is a pretty big blind spot that take a little getting used to but as long as you pay close attention while driving you'll be fine.

I really enjoy my Chevrolet Equinox. It handles these Maine roads very well. It provides a smooth ride on bumpy roads. My car makes me feel safe in the winter.

- Britney M

I feel like this vehicle has a lot of cheap parts that break easily.

It constantly has something wrong with it. It has had major engine work and I don't feel like it is old enough for that. It has less than 90,000 miles on it.

- Crystal D

I take very good care of my car. and although it is almost 6 years old it is in excellent condition.

I like that it has 4 wheel drive and is very good in the Winter. I like that it is not too big but roomy enough to carry cargo. I like all the safety features.

- Stephen E

Because two members of my family are over six feet tall, the extra leg room is great.

Enjoy having the extra leg room in the back seat and the pioneer speaker system. The car is the right size for my family and we use it when we go on vacation.

- Fay M

Safety! Myself and my family feel safe driving around in my car
