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!
2nd best veh.
Pros: XM Radio
Cons: The ride could be more smoothThe car handles excellent. Gas millage is good.
Love my Equinox Sport
Pros: The handling, the engine pick up and the braking system, plus it looks very sharp,though its hard to choose just one.
Cons: It could have had a little more interior attention to detailThis vehicle constantly and continues to impress me every time I drive it. It handles amazing, its braking system makes one feel so comforted, it really makes one feel safe. The power of the Sports engine and acceleration and the 6 speed manual option it has with the automatic transmission makes it great for long haul, inclines, decents and around town. The seats are very comfortable, backseat is always commented on as to how comfortable it is. For the price, it can't be beat and though I don't race anymore, it probably would give most cars 2-3 times its price (the status cars) a whipping.
Pros: sliding rear seat
Cons: feels off center to steering columnGood car. Great for families with kids needing a little more space. Sits a little low but this is great for kids to get in. Overall a good quality car.
Pros: Size and Style
Cons: No electric Seat on Passenger side.
Advice: I would tell them to drive one and see if they like it.I bought my Sport Equinox on 10/01/2007. I drove it a little over 100 miles. The fuel milage was great. The car performance was awsome! It is such a cute and sporty little SUV.
