My equinox fits all of my family needs.

2016 Chevrolet Equinox L

I enjoy my equinox simply because it is a family vehicle. Our family is expanding and it holds us all comfortably for now. It is compact enough to drive daily and not have to spend a ton on gas but just large enough to go grocery shopping and bring the entire family along. The only thing I do not enjoy is that there is no rear vent for air flow to the back of the car. So in the summer I have to make sure I allow the car to run with the ac on max until it cools before we get in so that the babies do not overheat while waiting for the car to cool. Since I have had the car I have not experienced any major mechanical problems other than having to replace the battery which was still under warranty. The features I enjoy most are the OnStar and XM services. Although I have to pay for both they are rather inexpensive and I get a diagnosis report for my car every month and everyone in the car has their stations saved and ready when we are traveling. Overall I love my car. As our family continues to expand we may have to upgrade to a larger family vehicle but for now this one suits us great.

It is a good car it is a very good car and I recommend this car to anyone

2016 Chevrolet Equinox L

There isn't any problems. It drives smoothly great on gas. I just got the car so I haven't experienced any problems just yet. Every time I need the car it starts with no issues. Haven't had to change a tire yet. It has not stalled on me. This by far is the best car I have ever driven.I would recommend this car.to. Anyone who is looking to purchase a car at any one of the dealerships that are near them

the Chevrolet Equinox gives the comfort required for a good driving experience

2016 Chevrolet Equinox L

The vehicle is stable, it provides a good comfort, the seats do not heat in the sun due to the material of manufacture, gas consumption is acceptable and very good for my daily output. The vehicle control system makes it easy for me to check the air in my tires, condition the filters and maintain my vehicle. Driving this vehicle gives me comfort that I had never yet found in a jeep.

- joseph M

Love the backup camera. My old car didn't have one. Makes it so much easier.

2016 Chevrolet Equinox L

Haven't had that many problems with it. Drive it 1 hour every workday, and only had to take it in the shop once besides the usual tune up. That was for it shutting off when I put off the gas puddle. That was very scary, but we drove it the 30 minutes to the dealership and they took care of the problem right away. That was about 3 months ago, and it has been running fine ever since.

Comfortable SUV for travel or family

2016 Chevrolet Equinox L

The Chevrolet Equinox is the most comfortable vehicle I have ever owned. It has an eco mode which helps save gas and efficiently travel. The seats are comfortable with electric controls and heated seat option. This vehicle is spacious enough for a couple without children who love to travel. It is even spacious enough to haul around a family of four.

- Erica B

The back up camera is an epic luxury.

2016 Chevrolet Equinox L

I absolutely love my 2016 Chevy equinox. The backup camera is a great help and I got it at a very affordable price. It's great for shopping and comfortable for road trips. It gets awesome gas mileage as well. I wouldn't have found a better car to fit my daily travel routine. Everyone should try a Chevy equinox, I am sure people will love it as do I.

Mpg, maintenance, usability.

2016 Chevrolet Equinox L

I have used it to go back and forth from Louisiana and California a couple times, grate mpg, kind of small for an SUV but good for a mid size family. Only front wheel drive with the l trim package. Doing basic maintenance is easy minus getting the oil filter out there is not any easy way to do so. Over all the car can take a beating and keep going.

- Kenneth R

2016 Chevy Black Equinox with automatic start

2016 Chevrolet Equinox L

Overall it is a great car. It does not have AWD drive which I didn't know when I bought it. I honestly did not know anything about cars. Now I know. It has room for four comfortably. The back row does not get air during the summer. Which is bad for my kids. It gets okay gas mileage. I love the fact that mine has heated seats and automatic start.

Slightly Reliable Good Size Vehicle

2016 Chevrolet Equinox L

When my vehicle hit 60,000 there was a problem with the oil. Afterward I found out that was a common problem with the vehicle I have around the year mine was made. I think it is perfect size for a single person or someone with 1 or 2 kids. It is so easy to haul things like groceries or even bigger things. Very comfortable for longer road trips.

- Kelsey L

Touch screen sound system

2016 Chevrolet Equinox L

My car is from Carvana, it is pre owned but very well maintained. I was looking for a spacious car because my family is planning on more children in the future. I love the navy blue color and how smooth it drives. Love the touch screen sound system and the speaker quality for my phone is very clear. I am very happy with my SUV.

- michelle H

MY vehicle is a 4 door, 5 speed Chevy equinox.

2016 Chevrolet Equinox L

My car is very reliable. I have driven it in Colorado, and South Texas and it has never had a problem handling hills or excessive heat. Admittedly I'm a bad driver, and there have been a number of times where I ran a stop sign and floored the break, that should have caused a lot of damage but it is still working like new.

- Collin C

A vehicle for many lifestyles

2016 Chevrolet Equinox L

The Equinox is very roomy and easy to maneuver on the road. There aren't too many blind spots and I feel fairly safe in it. My favorite feature is the auxiliary cord option so I can listen to Spotify from my phone. I like the sleek look and design of the exterior and the interior is very comfortable.

- Tiffany M

Comfortable interior. Middle seat in the rear is uncomfortable on long trips.

2016 Chevrolet Equinox L

This vehicle has been very dependable, needing only regular maintenance. It was purchased on a whim, but hasn't disappointed us. We got Sirius and Wi-Fi in it. The gas mileage is good, we fill up only twice a month. It's driven over 30 miles a day, in Las Vegas, gas is usually around $2.75 - $3.00.

- JoAnn S

Vehicle has a really smooth ride and great on gas for traveling.

2016 Chevrolet Equinox L

I really love my vehicle. It is really great on gas. The size is perfect for a family car. I would really recommend the Chevy equinox. It has a really smooth ride and very comfortable over all. It has Bluetooth connection, as well as built in Wi-Fi which is very convenient for those who have kids.

- Kimberly G

Reliable, easy to use car!

2016 Chevrolet Equinox L

I love my Chevy equinox. It gets great gas mileage. It has plenty of room inside without being too large. I have a hard time driving big vehicles, but wanted something bigger than a sedan and this is perfect. I have had it a little over a year and have had absolutely no issues with it.

- Shanna G

Good choice, not great though.

2016 Chevrolet Equinox L

I like our Chevrolet Equinox. The gas mileage is great and it's a pretty comfortable ride. After driving it for awhile I wish it sat up a little higher and felt more like an SUV than a car. I have also had some issues with our seats going up and down when I need more cargo space.

- Brennan S

Great purchase and investment

2016 Chevrolet Equinox L

I love the comfort of the car. No leather seats that get hot in the summer. For me, I especially like the size of the rear. I'm able to store and pack more than my old car. The upgraded features are a bonus too. The rear facing camera is a great upgrade along with tinted windows.

- Kari B

Heated seats 4 wheel drive Bluetooth Foldable seats

2016 Chevrolet Equinox L

I love my car! It is great for everyday life and long trips. The only thing I would change is I would like to have air vents in the back seat. My car offers heated seats which is wonderful during the winter months! Also having 4-wheel drive takes a lot of stress off of me!

- Kelly B

Great car to drive and use

2016 Chevrolet Equinox L

The performance is very well. It is reliable and very comfortable to drive. Has great features that are great to use. Great use of XM radio that can be used. Smooth driving when hitting bumps. Comfortable seats for drivers and back seat passengers that sit in there

- Amanda L

Get you this family car! It is awesome!

2016 Chevrolet Equinox L

Car is awesome! Could have not asked for a better car! Great reliability! Haven't had any problems! I wish it had a better more updated radio, but from where I bought it from it makes sense. Haven't had a single problem with this car. Great starter family car!
