On level roads it is very nice. In mountians it could use more power. Qverall a very good automobile
The Equinox is actually surprisingly roomy in the back seats. We took our kids on a trip for the first time it was actually very pleasant ride and the handling is also better than most SUVs. The only issue we had was that the headrests for the back seats are not removable, we felt a bit strange to have a gap between the seat back and the convertible child seats we have (Britax) , but it works out just fine. Gas mileage is reasonably good, averaged 25MPG.
Pros: Drivers seat adjustment and lumbar support,w/ heat
Cons: Winter driving with this carMileage gets better when broken in. Initially barely 20 mpg hwy, now 22/23 mpg long road trip. Plan your passing carefully. Have had back surgery, if the drivers seat adjusts to my back I'm interested! GREAT driver comfort w/heated seat & lumbar system. Good leg room adjustment in back seat! Not the most comfortable ride in back though. Would like window and door control on door arm rest. Great looking vehicle makes you turn your head. I downsized for better mileage (didn't gain mpg) and sacrificed more cargo space then I had expected. Front wheel drive hydro-planes easily when pavement wet. Not my first front wheel drive vehicle, VERY disappointed during the winter. If you don't drive in snow, or on ice, this would be the car for you!
Pros: Its got great power!
Cons: The color,I absolutely love my car, its just big enough to be a SUV, and small enough to be sporty, and fuel efficient
