Pros: Turbocharged motor
Cons: Brake noisePurchased an HHR SS as a grocery getter. The performance of the turbocharged motor is very impressive. Fit and finish is very good and the car feels very soild. I especially like having a small wagon that can handle my hauling needs yet be sporty and offer the performance and economy I want. The ride and handling are great for my needs. I tend to favor a tighter handling chassis and am willing to give up a softer ride. The seats are very supportive and all of the essential controls are layed out well. Gas mileage is good, around 20 in town and 29 on the highway. Only issue has been a noisy brake noise upon moderate to hard braking.
2nd best veh.
Pros: XM Radio
Cons: The ride could be more smoothThe car handles excellent. Gas millage is good.
Pros: bluetooth, back up cam
Cons: nothngI have had my equinox since April and I still love it! The ride is good, the look is stylish. No complaints from me.
Pros: Backup Camera
Cons: Wheel wells are a little big for the 18' tires.I picked up a 2010 Equinox LT2 with a lot of features of the LTZ for $31k. The car has been a dream so far. First off, I thought that I needed a 6 cylinder, but the 4 cylinder has more than enough power. The ride is very quiet and the interior is very classy and comes with a USB port which allows me to charge my Iphone and also listen to it through the computer speakers. The leather interior is very comfy and the backup camera is a must if you do a lot of parralel parking. I am extremely pleased with my purchase and would really recommend the LT2 model.
Pros: fuel milage
Cons: instrument panelThis vechile has a poor instrument panel. The sun glare is very bad much of the day. The small gages for fuel and temperature are almost invisible at times. The chrome plated latch on the top cneter storage area reflects to the point of not being able to see at times.
great looking car - reasonable price
Cons: less than perfect left -right viewing due to wide corner postsonly one real objection - left and right frontal view is somewhat obstructed by the corner posts other wise a fairly well put together vehicle. model LT1,4cyl,fwd - avg mpg = 27
Best Cross Over
Cons: no back up cameraWe love this car. From the time that we sit inside for a drive across town or across country. We are getting 24 mpg in town and 29 on the highway. The kids love the room in the back and the seats recline. We look at and drove a CRV put the rear seats were flat.
