Great vehicle for the money but could use some updating!

I had to buy my vehicle as a result of hurricane Harvey. I needed a larger vehicle because I have 2 large dogs. The Equinox was not the vehicle I was initially considering, but very close. I love how it looks; it is sleek, pretty, comfortable, and roomy. It has a lot of storage pockets/hideaways. It doesn't' t. Have the greatest pick-up - it is a 4-cyl engine, with an option for "eco" mode, which I use. I didn't experience a difference in the pick-up taking it off "eco" mode. There are 2 major disappointments: there are no vents nor a/c controls in the backseat. The Bluetooth is spotty; it drops in and out for no reason. It took my battery going dead and being re-charged for the Bluetooth to come back, but only for calls - not google maps. These two major disappointments probably would have changed my mind had I realized them at the time of purchase. I also wanted the backup assistant, and leather seats, but those options did not come equipped on this vehicle (it was on the original vehicle I wanted). It is been very reliable though, and I get a lot of compliments on it.

Great Vehicle-Only minor complaints

My Equinox has been a great vehicle for me. The gas mileage is very good for a small SUV. I love the touch screen radio and options. I love that the back seat is adjustable because I now have two children and they need some extra space. I do wish it was roomier now that my family has grown but it works. The front seats have a very good amount of space. I haven't had any problems with it. The only service I've had is oil changes. I do have a few things I dislike. It does not get up and go very quick at all, it takes longer to accelerate than anything I have driven before. I think it's because of the 4cyl and many manufacturers are putting a 4 cylinder in small SUVs...it's not a good idea unless the vehicle has a turbo. And my one other dislike is the seats, they are to the best way to describe webbed so they leave marks on your legs. All in all, its been a great vehicle for my growing family. I can fit all 4 of us in comfortably and we do feel safe in it.

Fantastic mileage and a dream to drive.

I love my Equinox because the body style is appealing to me. It is an off white color with a pearl finish. The interior is leather black and brown. There is a lot of area for carrying things like luggage, building materials (I can haul 8' lumber and half sheets 2' x 8') if I put the back seats down. It has a back up camera and warning sensors that tell me if I am backing too close to an object. This feature alone has saved my bacon from damaging my car or someone else's or both. It has lane sensors that warn me if I have crossed the center line or the right edge line. I do not hear that alarm as much as the backup alarm. I get good gas mileage 25 mpg at least. I also tow it behind my motorhome and it tows like a dream. The only downside about towing is that I have to pull a fuse to tow it "four on the ground" and keep the battery from draining. More of an inconvenience than a problem.
