2018 Chevrolet Equinox Owner Reviews & Problems
Reviews For Chevrolet Equinox
Handles like a midsize car even though it looks like a sports utility vehicle (SUV).
I am only a passenger - I like that I can raise or lower my seat. The lighted vanity mirror is really handy. I love the blindspot assist in the mirror and the back up camera. Having OnStar is a great crutch, especially since we are older driver & passenger. I dislike the lack of a "sunshade" for the all important touch screen. Our previous Equinox (2010) had everything just right for us. We traded it in order to get the more advanced safety features. This new one has the cargo door release on the driver's door so the passenger can't assist the person trying to open it. The second row seat is stationary. When our grandchildren rode with us I could barely reach them from the front seat. The rearview mirror is a manual day/night switch. There is no longer a navigation program - you must have a smartphone in order to transfer your driving map or contact OnStar and ask for their navigation to be sent to your car. There are enough issues that we decided within the first 60 days we would trade it much sooner than any of our other vehicles. It is very reliable and our local dealership is great.
2018 emerald Equinox feat. -4g Wi-Fi & OnStar. + USB. All in all-a great vehicle.
The 2018 Equinox drives perfectly in all weather. The seating in very comfortable in the front 2 seats, that can be heated and the 3 seat in back has a middle section that pulls down to a cup holder for 2 and table. The trunk area is roomy and has hidden compartments for storage. There many USB charging area throughout the vehicle. The sunroof opens up from the front to the beginning of trunk area. The roof opens up in the front only. The vehicle is loaded with 4g Wi-Fi (with activation) OnStar is allowed loaded (with activation) both came with a 6 mo. Free service when vehicle was bought. This vehicle is a one-of-a-kind color, emerald green. In my state only 2 were shipped here in 8/2017. Vehicle also has an auto engine stop when car in idling. Very safe, reliable, comfortable, useful SUV I have ever owned.
2018 Chevy Equinox many safety features.
The only problem I have is that the battery can run down if you do not unplug something in the rear auxiliary socket. I love the push button start and the way you can lock and unlock the doors by pushing a button on the driver side outside door. It also has a great backup camera with a warning if something is coming from either direction. Also on the outside mirrors there is a warning light if there is a car in your blind spot which really helps when trying to pass on interstate highways. I also like that there is no gas cap to take on and off. The radio is great but there is no CD player anymore but you can play music off your phone through the radio. I am getting better gas mileage than on any other Equinox that I have owned. Also the four wheel drive can be engaged at any time.
Wonderful small SUV. You will not feel like you are driving an uncomfortable boat!
My Equinox is great! I am a small woman just about 5'0 feet. I am able to adjust my seat so that it is comfortable. The seat length, which is not adjustable is the right length for me. I really do not like being uncomfortable when I drive. It's nice to have some more space but not feel like I am driving a boat. I feel like it handles nicely and picks up speed for entering the expressway really well. I like the touch screen which has a big display. It is very easy to put the back seats down and up for more cargo space. The only issue I have is that I can not get the voice activated call to work. I have tried to call several times about it and cannot get it worked out. Not sure if this is a glitch with the model or just mine in particular.
The turbo engine of the Equinox.
The 2018 Equinox AWD is for an all around nice vehicle. Comes with different temp settings for drive and passengers, heated seats and the seats are powered. Your able to put more support in your lumbar spine, which is nice for anyone who has lumbar spine issues like myself. The back seat is very spacious if you have children there's plenty of room for them. The trunk area is just perfect for groceries or luggage. The back end is also powered, meaning all you need to do to open and close it, is to push a button, either on the trunk/hatch or there's a very convent button on the drivers side door. Our vehicle has the turbo engine which I find I have issues with the gas pedal being very touchy, it definitely is a turbo.
The over the door handle bars that can assist getting in and out of the vehicle.
New auto. . . No problems. Previous car was a Chrysler Sebring this was a low vehicle that was becoming uncomfortable to get in and out. The equinox is a higher and wider model making it easier and comfortable to enter. Also, the multiple seat adjustments add to the seating and comfort level. The window wipers have multiple levels and the back wiper comes on automatically. A safety feature includes the side-mirrors that have an auto alert letting the driver know that a car is approaching on the 'blind-side'. The equinox has a provides a smooth drive with controls for the music system on the steering wheel. The trunk is a large open space that can be made even larger by folding down the seats in the rear.
Economical, comfortable, keyless remote and start.
I purchased my Chevrolet Equinox in august. Three days after I bought it I took a lengthy road trip. The car was so comfortable on the long drive. Equinox is a turbo diesel and I get 39 miles to the gallon. I love the remote start feature, especially now that the weather is turning colder. I have an automatic lift gate and that is a wonderful feature for me, no effort on my part, just push the button and it is open and push it again and it is closed. The interior feels very roomy. I love the heated seats and lumbar feature. Especially when my back is hurting, the heat and lumbar feel amazing. The backup camera is very helpful. I am completely satisfied with my choice of this vehicle.
2018 Equinox - dog mom ready!
I just bought this car 2 months ago after my Chevy Cruze died. I have built a trust with Chevrolet cars and new I wanted to continue my relationship with the dealership. My 2018 Equinox is spacious in the backseat when visitors come into town and the hands free calling system is my favorite feature. The contrast gray/black interior is slick and makes the car feel current with the latest car trends. The added feature of roadside assistance is a plus that makes me feel comfortable at all times! I would recommend this car to just about anyone looking to purchase an SUV!
Great family car for a family of four.
The 2018 Chevrolet Equinox is a great vehicle for our family of four. We live in an area that has all kinds of weather. It goes great in the snow and the heated seats are definitely a plus. There is plenty of legroom in the back seat as our children are older and fit comfortably. We used this vehicle for our family vacation and the only complaint I have is there wasn't much room for luggage. We had owned a 2015 Equinox and it had more room in the rear compartment for luggage for 4 people. Overall I would say the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox is a great family car.
My 2018 Chevrolet Equinox, the fuel miser.
2018 Chevrolet Equinox. The vehicle has a tight and sporty, controllable, yet comfortable ride. It is very stable on the highway even in heavy crosswinds. There is lots of room for both passengers and cargo if/when necessary. When the back seats are folded down it is equivalent to a small pickup truck in capacity. The fuel mileage is exceptional. Overall we get 32 mpg as the estimates state and around town, which for us does consist of a 50/50 mix of highway and city driving, we get over 28 mpg. I would lease it again without question.
