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.
Great little car
Pros: Fold flat rear seats.
Cons: Cup holder position.Purchased in Jan 2010. Have driven thru 2 NW Indiana winters. Love the remote start. Always does great in the snow (just remember it's not 4WD). I drive 80 miles round trip for work, mileage was 29-31, now getting 30-32mpg. 31mpg on a trip to Florida & back. Cup holders could have a better position. Visability is alittle different from other cars, windshield pillars seem wider (drive one first, don't complain later). Oh yes..E85 mileage is horrible, runs ok on it but you will never save any $$$. Wind noise is par with others its size.
very nice ;never regreted buying
Pros: power and heated seats
Cons: gas milagelove the ride; like the looks;enjoy it every day
Pros: Accleration, good troaty exaust system
Cons: Firmness of seatsI had a Trail Blazer prior and it was superior. This Taho is a bit Truckish in ride, firm not cushy like the Blazer. But when you push on the gas you can get around in traffic. For a large vehicle it's nimble. I drive alot in small town and Big Town Houston / Dallas its great you feel safe in traffic. Very good pulling vehicle. We had to use it this year in 20 to21' of snow, preformed great.
Pros: seat position on exit
Cons: MPGI really like the size of my trailblazer, not difficult to part.
my best ever vehicle
Pros: comfortable seating for all 5I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT MY HHR! never felt this way abt any car before!!! SERIOUSLY***
DISAPPOINTED I DIDN'T GET POWER SEATS AND THE LT SERIES
