The Equinox splits the difference between small SUVs and midsized models. While nice and roomy inside, it's less efficient than other five-passenger SUVs, but burns as much gas as larger, seven-passenger models. The 3.6-liter engine supplies quick acceleration times at the test track, but feels sluggish in routine driving with its unrefined and slow-shifting six-speed automatic transmission doing it no favors.

TRY ONE OUT! My close up 2-3' vision is challenged, my farsightedness is excellent but the auto dimmer needs to be replaced by manual dimmer/brightest display. WHAT GOOD ARE SPEEDO GAUGES IF YOU CAN'T SEE THEM? NOBODY AT GM/CHEVY/DEALER/MFGR CAN SOLVE THIS SO I WILL NEVER BUY AN EQUINOX AGAIN."

This problem also occured on our 2010 Equinox, though it resulted in almost total oil loss. After six years they haven’t fixed the problem, pretty sad. They did do a service on the PCV system to increase breathing, they did this on the 2010 too. Very strange."

AIR BAGS:SIDE/WINDOW
Oct 16 2015
In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of one or both of the side impact air bags, the air bag's inflator may rupture and the air bag may not properly inflate. The rupture could cause metal fragments to strike the vehicle occupants, potentially resulting in serious injury or death. Additionally, if the air bag does not properly inflate, the driver or passenger is at an increased risk of injury.
Summary:
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2015 Buick LaCrosse, Cadillac XTS, Chevrolet Camaro, Equinox, Malibu, and GMC Terrain vehicles. The affected vehicles have front seat-mounted side impact air bags whose inflator may rupture upon its deployment.
What should you do:
GM will notify owners, and dealers will replace the side impact air bag modules, free of charge. The recall began on October 19, 2015. Owners may contact Buick customer service at 1-800-521-7300, Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020, Cadillac customer service at 1-800-458-8006, or GMC customer service at 1-800-462-8782. GM's number for this recall is 01320.
