2007 Chevrolet Equinox LT from North America
Would not recommend
Have had numerous issues with the brakes and wheel bearings. Also, had several occasions when the car would not start and had to have it towed due to "programming" or computer issues? Paint is also chipping and rusting in areas, and the car is only 3 years old. GM service has also been very poor.
The vehicle is very comfortable, but too many safety issues.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Seems some certain GM models were tailor-made for the rental fleets. Once that odometer creeps up toward 100k mark, it's time to jump ship before they self-destruct.
I've owned late-model Lumina and Malibus, which were built like throw-away cars after 100k. I'm not a big fan of leasing vehicles, but when I test-drove an Equinox my sister-in-law had briefly, I got the distinct impression that a low-mileage lease would be the way to go with that one.
I'm still the proud owner of a Lincoln Town Car and Chevy Silverado, and haven't given up on the domestic brands yet.. and I hope I never have to.
