"The Money Pit" by Jeff outta Luck on 01/18/2013. Trim: 2008 Chevrolet Equinox Sport AWD, Owned 3 years.
Pros: I have owned this SUV 2 years , got it used. Bought it for my wife as a daily driver. Loved the style and proformance at first, and then the trouble began!!!!
Cons: This 2008 sport model was only available 1 year and I know why. It's a piece of junk! It has spent more time at the GM dealer than on the road! We had to have the engine pulled and the timing chains replaced 3 (THAT'S RIGHT 3) times in the last year! The last time it lasted almost 15000 miles. Also MANY electrical problems. A service tech. tried to tell my wife she had electrical problems because she used the plug for the towing package(which she never used) so it was her fault. What is a towing package for if you can't plug in a trailer anyway? Nothing but problems, and no help from GM. I've tried their customer service people all the way up to the regional director and got nowhere.
Overall review: I got screwed on this vehicle and cannot get rid of it, I will never buy a Chevy again! I sure am glad the U.S. Govt. used our money to bail out GM( NOT) they should have gone down like Nash,Studabaker,Edsel and many others! Make a quality product and stand behind it or get out of this business. JUNK!

Awesome Vehicle, Strongly Recommended. by David, Fort-Lauderdale FL on 10/15/2010. Trim: 2008 Chevrolet Equinox Sport AWD, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Really love the interior, for a vehicle I bought used, it really stood out. Great sound system, with 7 speakers - awesome bass - I love the fact I won't have to purchase an aftermarket sound system. Very roomy, and the exterior design turns lots of heads. I average about 20 - 24mpg which is pretty good in my taste for an SUV.
Cons: Like everybody else, the road noise is a sour thumb for me. I also did not like the wide turning angle, makes it difficult for me to park like I used to compare to my old Nissan 200sx. Maybe both of these issues were addressed in newer models.
Overall review: Great car if you want the sporty look/feel/handling as well as enough room for a family. That's why I got mine.

Equinox by Faruq. Toronto, ON, Canada on 01/21/2010. Trim: 2008 Chevrolet Equinox LS 2WD, Owned 2 years.
Pros: Great looks - interior (silver and wood finish) and exterior, great smooth, stable ride. Fun driving it.
Cons: Steering wheel adjustment, not a lot of room to move it up or down. No electric window controls on the doors. Very congested space in the front, not much for storage space. 12V front power outlet is mounted under the center arm rest, very difficult to get to it Some blind spots.
Overall review: Overall I like it, but, will not buy another one if they cannot provide a better steering adjustment control.

Nice Vehicle by DJ on 07/27/2009. Trim: 2008 Chevrolet Equinox Sport 2WD, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Roomy. I get great gas mileage out of her. I tend to use cruise control and on the highway I get 25 mpg around town 20 on the average.
Cons: Blasted window controls in the center of the vehicle, what genius thought up that one? Cup holders are flimsy.
Overall review: I like the vehicle, the room and the mileage
