This car is a Piece of Crap!
I have had a new head gasket at about 55K miles.
I have had a new ABS system installed.
I have had the rotors replaced or cut 7 times.
I have difficulty starting the car, even when its 100 degrees outside.
There is a persistent rattling noise on the drivers side.
When I made the decision to trade in my 97 Trooper for a 2005 Equinox, I was excited with my choice. I was certain that Chevy made a good truck.
Boy was I wrong! This Jalopy as I refer to it has been nothing more than trouble for me. Thank God for extended warranties! I spend so much time at the dealership, they should start paying me. But since I do nothing, but Bad Mouth Chevy, I guess I would not be a productive team member.
Prior to owning a Chevy, I drove an Isuzu Trooper and owed 3 Fords Prior to that. My company will only allow us to drive vehicles produced on Union Made lines, so I am stuck with either a UAW or CAW car... I will take my chances and go back to FORD... I averaged 135K on all of my Fords and had 196K on my Trooper when I traded it and never had the kind of trouble I've had with my 2.5 year old vehicle. Unfortunately, I have 2 years remaining to pay for the heap, otherwise, I would set this thing on fire!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
