2012 Chevrolet Equinox Owner Reviews & Problems
Reviews For Chevrolet Equinox
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
