Good CarBy Charles Brasher, Nov 6, 2014After driving another GM product that only averaged 17 mpg, we were ready for one that would promise and deliver better mpg, and we got it. The 2.5 L I4 has plenty of power for this size car, and averages 27 mpg in mixed driving, about half rural, and half city stop and go. Have not had any issues with the AC, which gets a real workout in the North FL heat and humidity. In 27K of driving so far, have only had to replace the rear glass wiper, the rest routine tire rotations and oil changes. The car handles well and is comfortable for 4 adults, with luggage. Three in the back seat means small children, 100 pounds each or less. Overall, a great car for a couple, and two other people, with the four doors and SUV frame. The rear camera is helpful in backing, and could use some tweaking to work better in low light. The lane shift alert and the following indicators work well in heavy traffic. The GM navigation works generally well, although we found that it had not been updated before purchase. ...moreComes with Micheling Touring Tires standard, adequately equipped for an LT model. Handles well for an SUV. Fuel mileage is good.
GM should make effort to update the Navigation systems' computer more often. Rear camera needs a better ability to work in low-light situationsTrim 2013 Chevrolet Equinox FWD 1LT

2013 Chevy Equinox 1LT V6 FWDBy David Jay, Apr 4, 2014I purchased my 2013 Equinox in Dec 2012, and having had it now for almost five months, and driven close to 5000 miles, I now am really appreciating my vehicle. I had done extensive research into this segment before buying, and chose the 1LT FWD V6. I have only had very good experiences so far in both long trips and short hops. The V6 is extremely peppy and responsive in all types of driving. I especially enjoy its power when driving at highway speeds up steep grades, and find the engine taking it in stride without straining! The ride is very comfortable, and the outside wind noise is minimal, adding to a serene drive. The Auto Temp control works really well and keeps us comfortable in both cold and hot weather. The MyLink system is user friendly. Even I managed to navigate it relatively simple. My wife enjoys the Pioneer Sound System. She says she forgets she is driving, and feels more like she is in a home theater. I have the premium cloth seats in my Equinox, and they are both smart looking and supporting. I felt very relaxed and comfortable even during an extended period of sitting. My kids love the enormous space in the back seats, and never fail to comment how much room they have back there! I enjoy the adjustable rear seat which can be moved back and forth to accommodate more or less luggage, as needed. The styling is sharp, and it looks really nice, even just sitting on our driveway. I usually don't feel so excited about a vehicle purchase, but this is one I am so happy we made. So is there anything I don't like? One thing... The driver's seatbelt often gets slammed on the closing mechanism when shutting the door as I leave the vehicle. The seatbelt doesn't slide back into its holster fast enough. I am aware of this so I try and be careful to push it out of the way before closing. This is a minor detail which does not diminish my enjoyment in driving my Equinox. ...moreSharp looks, Strong V6 power, Comfortable and quiet ride, MyLink Info and entertainment first rate!
