Powerful, fun midsize SUV!

2018 Chevrolet Equinox LS

The style of the car inside and out is great! Like a classic Chevy trim but very functional and reliable SUV. I love the 6-way adjustability of the driver seat. The lumbar support and heated seats make it excellent for road trips. The back seat and trunk are both spacious. The maneuverability could be a little better and the handling in adverse weather conditions seems hampered a bit by the vehicles' response system. It kind of gets a little 'jerky' motion when slippery or sometimes even just raining a little. The gas mileage has been great. It has given me @25 miles/gallon. Again awesome on long distance road trips! Love having the remote start as both the heat and AC are amazing. Great car overall!

- Stacey H

This vehicle has 8 cup holders!

2018 Chevrolet Equinox LS

I love that my Equinox has remote start. It is really helpful for heating it up in winter and cooling it down in summers in Michigan. It can comfortably fit 2 harnessed Booster child safety seats in the back while still having plenty of room for 2 tall adults in the front. The cargo area is large enough to fit 3 hockey bags; including a goalie bag with pads. It is very reliable in winter - I've never had a problem with acceleration or stopping on icy, snow covered roads. It also has 8, yes 8 cup holders. One in all 4 doors, 2 in the center console and 2 in the pull down part in the back seat.

- Katie G

My comfortable safe vehicle that I like a lot.

2018 Chevrolet Equinox LS

I love my Equinox. It drives smoothly and quietly. It get pretty good mileage for being a SUV (better than my previous vehicle which was a Traverse). It is comfortable to drive and easy to adjust seat comfort. I like that I can raise the heights of the seat as well get it closer so that I can reach the pedals. It has Bluetooth capabilities which makes it nice for hands free driving. The back is spacious and I am able to easily get my grocery items and other shopping items in it. I really like this vehicle and am likely to buy another one in the future.

- Kay W

Smooth, safe, and reliable vehicle.

2018 Chevrolet Equinox LS

The vehicle drives smooth and feels smooth whenever I am driving it. The interior of the vehicle is a simple black interior but the seats are very comfortable and makes long trips feel better. I do enjoy the feature with apple with my iPhone because it's like I am connected to my car and I even can locate my car from my phone once I have connected to the vehicle. Anyone is deciding on if they want to buy this car, they should because it will be worth every penny and believe me you will enjoy it in the long run.

- Chris S

Great vehicle, Comfortable, reliable, safe

2018 Chevrolet Equinox LS

I enjoy driving this vehicle its stable and reliable. Comfortable seating for everyone, spacious there is even storage under the floor in the trunk area to give extra space. Seats fold all the way flat convenient for when we take the dog places. Middle cup holders fold down giving it a nice look. Touch screen easy connection with my phone Bluetooth. Decent speakers for those that enjoy music. Navigation, OnStar, updates when things are wrong. Volume control on steering wheel so you can stay focused on the road.

- eliza B

Looks nice but needs work

2018 Chevrolet Equinox LS

It drives well. There are a lot of blind spots. The trim around the windows began peeling off the second week I owned it and the dealerships refuse to fix it for free. The stereo volume only works sometimes, meaning there are more days than not I cannot adjust the volume from where it last was. The CarPlay also maintains a full black screen when used and the USB port only works in one position. It is crazy because the car is less than a year old.

- Grace K

Great in snow especially for a small SUV

2018 Chevrolet Equinox LS

I'm happy with my Chevy equinox. It's very good in the snow. I enjoy the apple car play immensely. It makes communicating either by text or phone call very easy and safe. I like being able to google maps through Apple carplay. It makes it much easier to find wherever I need to go at the time. One thing I don't like about my Chevy equinox is the comfort. I've had quite a few complaints about how uncomfortable the middle backseat is

- Heather T

Great car to start a family

2018 Chevrolet Equinox LS

I love the comfort of the car. Seats are great! When driving, it handles great and really safe feeling. Wonderful gas mileage! They only thing I would have to change about it would be that it sits low to the ground and when driving past other mini SUVs, you are sitting lower than them also. I realize that this feature helps with miles per gallon and efficiency, but it gets realistic while driving on the interstate.

- Taylor G

The amazing Chevy equinox.

2018 Chevrolet Equinox LS

My Chevy equinox is probably the most comfortable, reliable car I have ever owned. It is great on gas and has a tones of feature as well as safety features. There are dealerships everywhere near me, so getting parts or any type of work done by the manufacturer is extremely easy. It fits my entire family, with an extra seat for when we decide to have another child! Totally cool style, great drive, I love my equinox!

- Mark B

Bang for your buck with little space!

2018 Chevrolet Equinox LS

This vehicle is very good on gas however I noticed the leg room in the back is a bit lacking. The features are great the road handle is as well. Overall I would say this vehicle is definitely worth taking look at. Also the storage space is not the best if your a parent who shops a lot but if you have several vehicles or you are using this vehicle for commute this would be a good selection.


The vehicle comes equipped with onstar, big display, and a beautiful interior.

2018 Chevrolet Equinox LS

The vehicle is great on gas. It is a smooth ride and although it is bigger in size very easy to control. The Equinox does not come with satellite radio. That is a problem for me since its competitors all have this feature. Also the interior is very small for the body of the car to be so big. The truck space is too small. This vehicle is not for a growing family.

- Tiffany H

Auto stop feature in Equinox.

2018 Chevrolet Equinox LS

I really do not like the auto stop feature. It causes the car to hesitate sometimes when you are coming to a stop. I like the comfort, close feeling I get when I am in it. I don't feel like I am exposed to everyone. I like the fact that as long as my keys are on my person, I.e. pocket, purse, that I can open my door by pressing the silver button on door.

- Robin H

No Equal to My New Equinox!

2018 Chevrolet Equinox LS

Finally, a vehicle designed for safe visibility and comfort available for those with smaller statues! The driver's seat is adjustable for height and front 'reach' as well as providing a lumbar support. Gas mileage is efficient and the four wheel drive feature is only used when you decide that it's needed. It also features a large back seat and cargo space.

- Karen D

I have the new burnt orange exterior and black interior

2018 Chevrolet Equinox LS

I love this car from the time I drove it off the showroom floor. We lay seat down and put large dog bed in so our 12 year old lab can travel with us. We us the Chevy car play. The back up camera is one of The greatest features I have ever used. The rear view mirrors have a passing car warning that has been useful many time this is a great car.

- Kimberly G

Standard car with great features

2018 Chevrolet Equinox LS

Car is very reliable and gets pretty good gas mileage. There is a lot of room in the back of the vehicle, which makes traveling pretty simple. It rides smoothly and has a nice auto stop feature to save gas. Although the Apple car play is nice, it has limitations where you can't change music and view the map at the same time.

- Hayley K

One of the best features is the backup camera. It helps when parking or backing.

2018 Chevrolet Equinox LS

I have not had any mechanical issues with the car so far. I like that you sit up higher than in a car. It rides really smooth. The rear space holds a lot of cargo. It come with the ability to hook up by Bluetooth to your phone for hands free talking. The backup camera is a great feature. I can now back into parking spaces.

- Kim V

Great reliable car for small family

2018 Chevrolet Equinox LS

Great, car, roomy, get for 2 children. Only con is that it doesn't have an automatic trunk opener. Love the auto start, great on mileage. Very dependable and reliable car. Also really enjoy the apple carplay and the navigation service. Also comes with XM radio and OnStar, which can come in handy in emergency situations.

- Sarah S

Great car for lease price.

2018 Chevrolet Equinox LS

This is a great car for my purpose. I currently lease. My last equinox was a 2015 with lots of bells & whistles but I decided I didn't need them this time. I use this as my work travel vehicle. Great in the snow, plenty of room to transport big or lots of items and not a gas guzzler. Lease price is reasonable.

- Martha S

Green Chevy equinox. I love the apple CarPlay feature

2018 Chevrolet Equinox LS

I have a 2018 Chevrolet Equinox. My car gets very good gas mileage. It has great car features including apple CarPlay and OnStar. I love the color. It is safe, reliable and comfortable. I also get monthly car diagnostic updates sent to my email to warn me of things that need fixed or that everything is good.

- Raquel S

I was asked to write a review about my car so I did.

2018 Chevrolet Equinox LS

It is a very comfortable ride overall. There is plenty of space in the front and back as well as the trunk. The one thing I would change is the way the back opens - a remote would be great. The ls does not have power seats but that's manageable. It does not pick up speed like a sports car because it's not...

- Tanya S

It is the lemon car of this model.

2018 Chevrolet Equinox LS

Car lags on acceleration. Car revs rpms when should not. Does not run smoothly even though it is a brand new car. Test drive another model and ran fine, best friend has higher end model of this car and has no issues. My car has had quirks since the first day I got it and I've been severely upset with it.

- Rebecca J

Why I like my car. It's great on gas

2018 Chevrolet Equinox LS

I like the vehicle the only problem is the traction control/stabilization sensor come on all the time and the car starts to shake. Then the other thing is wish there were air vents in the backseat for people. The car is overall a nice family car for us and I'd highly recommend it to friends and family.

- Brent B

Favorite detail is the apple carplay and the pinstripe on the exterior

2018 Chevrolet Equinox LS

This car is awesome! With two large dogs I need more room. The apple carplay is my favorite feature and is very convenient. The seats in the back are easy to fold down to provide more storage. The only thing I would change is the material of seats as it is hard to get dog hair out of it or any spills

- Sydney T

Sits higher up, runs well. Good trunk space.

2018 Chevrolet Equinox LS

Runs well, but it is loud. Sounds like a window is open, seems cheaply made vs. the 2015 Chevrolet Equinox, which I owned prior. When closing the door, even if closed lightly sounds like a hard slam. Feels like I could push on the exterior and it would dent. Good gas mileage. Space is okay.

- Shanna W

Love my first Chevy! Tons of features for a great price!

2018 Chevrolet Equinox LS

This was my first vehicle purchase and I could not be happier! There's tons of safety features, including back up cameras and sensors and blind side detection. One of my favorite features is the Apple Car Play. I can bring up google maps right on the screen without having to look down at my phone.

- Cynthia R

Perfect option for mid-size SUV

2018 Chevrolet Equinox LS

Since leasing my Chevy Equinox about a year ago, I have never had any issues/problems. I love the backup camera, On-Star and Apple Carplay capabilities. I also like the automatic shut off feature while the car is stopped. While it does take some getting used to, I like that it helps save on gas.

- Kristin D

Equinox is a great vehicle for the price

2018 Chevrolet Equinox LS

The equinox is very comfortable for long trips. Great gas mileage. Enough room for five passengers as well as plenty of rear storage. Handling is very good. Best vehicle for the price. The all wheel drive option is a must in winter weather. The vehicle monitoring system is very user friendly.

- Tim J

Features pros and cons of my Chevy equinox.

2018 Chevrolet Equinox LS

Not all wheel drive and that needs to be a basic feature. It hydroplanes a lot on wet pavement even if it's only rained a little bit. The heated seats are a nice feature through and heat well. Another annoying feature is the auto shut off. Makes it difficult in traffic in town at stop lights.

- Rebecca B

Good cargo space even with back row seats up

2018 Chevrolet Equinox LS

Although my car is 19 months old I have only driven just over 2000 miles so can't answer on reliability. PROS: Big cargo area (Thinking hard!) CONS: 1.5 engine not powerful enough Several blind spots when driving Lack of any 'luxury' addons. The interior is totally bland.

- Anita W

Equinox 2018 Red with great features

2018 Chevrolet Equinox LS

The car was only 3 months old and had major issues. The dealership was able to fix them quickly but I still worry about my car malfunctioning again. However, I love the Chevy app and being able to start the car from anywhere. The heated seats were great during the polar vortex too.

- Katie D

5 person SUV, reliable and great on gas

2018 Chevrolet Equinox LS

We have had no problems with the car. It is very reliable and fantastic in gas. It is very comfortable for 4 people, but with a 5th person, we could use more room. 3 children could sit in the backseat, but not 3 adults. It could be roomier in the trunk area for traveling.

- Kelly S

Good feel but wish I could add on to my vehicle

2018 Chevrolet Equinox LS

I've never had any problems with the car and would definitely recommend it to others the only thing that I wish it had was the ability to attach roof racks. I realize that I could have bought a rack but to not have the ability to put on Chevy parts later is a little annoying.

- John D

Functional, nice heads up display connecting electronics

2018 Chevrolet Equinox LS

A little sluggish but drives great, no problems. Comfortable and nice ride. Not to crazy about the athletics. I would buy Chevy again after this. I like it. I think Chevy has come a long way. I enjoy driving my equinox and would buy another Chevy after this, maybe the blazer.

- mike S

My iPhone can connect to the car using apple car.

2018 Chevrolet Equinox LS

I love. How spacious it is for traveling. My phone is able to connect to so I can talk on the phone it is super easy to figure out. The radio the motherboard & can control things hands free. It tells you your remaining oil life before changing it. Wish it had a sunroof.

- Molly E

Reliable and Roomy Equinox

2018 Chevrolet Equinox LS

My vehicle has been nothing but reliable. We can comfortably go on road trips and have room for our dog and friends to ride with us too. Plus there's tons of room in the back to store/move stuff we moved the majority of our apartment into our new home in our equinox.

- Kaitlyn R

2018 Chevy Equinox: The right vehicle at the right time.

2018 Chevrolet Equinox LS

Comes with great features. Bluetooth radio, rear view camera and remote start. Rides very smoothly. Acceleration is something to be desired. Great on gas mileage. Plenty of room for passengers and cargo. The idle feature where it slows down the motor is interesting.

- Kevin M

Air conditioning and heating system

2018 Chevrolet Equinox LS

It runs good comes with a lot of advanced stuff, the 4 wheel drive works well and so do the headlights and heated seats, driving it is really easy and simple and is good at line control and good at breaking and shifting and also good at air conditioning and heating

- Nicole J

Equinox does its job and it trustworthy

2018 Chevrolet Equinox LS

My car is ok. My main issue so far is the color. Its white and also a SUV type car. In Florida everyone has a car that looks like my car does so it's hard to find in the parking lot. No issues yet. I have only done routine maintenance. It has served me well so far.

- Laura M

My 2018 Chevrolet equinox.

2018 Chevrolet Equinox LS

I have not encountered any problems with this vehicle except that I wish the passenger front seat was a little roomier and that there was more room for stuff that I need to have next to me, like a handbag. And sometimes the sensors on the mirrors stop working.

- Pat A

Company car- basic no upgrade.

2018 Chevrolet Equinox LS

Base model - company car very basic wish there were more upgrades - no problems with the car - very reliable - has OnStar services - small compact- keyless feature is nice - would not be my first choice- company car serves the purposes for work like the car.

- Alan J

Fun, great looking vehicle with great standard options.

2018 Chevrolet Equinox LS

Drives great! Very comfortable, ample storage space/cup holders. Keyless entry is a plus, as well as heated seats. Only complaints are the radio station selector on steering wheel only allows for pre-set stations and the 'pick up' lacks a bit when AC is on.

- Desire K

Love my new car love the new car and it feels great to drive it.

2018 Chevrolet Equinox LS

So far I have no problems with the reliability of the equinox. Drives great. Handles well in bad weather. Love the heated seats. Side view mirrors light warn of side traffic. I love the backup camera. Warns of incoming cars. The car feels very luxurious.

- Sandra N

Chevrolet Equinox is great with grandkids.

2018 Chevrolet Equinox LS

It is very Easy to drive. It is very comfortable. We have not had any problems with it. Very responsive steering. Very steady on the road despite the road conditions. The seating in the vehicle is comfortable and holds up very well to wear and tear.

- Kenneth S

Very disappointed

2018 Chevrolet Equinox ls

I have a 2018 equinox that is currently a year old and already has to be taken in for servicing. The check engine light is on. With the car only being 1 year old that should not be happening. So disappointing.

- Veronica Owens

Chevy equinox is a great car for a family of 4!
