Major complaints as listed in customer comments:
1. Poor Mileage - I have gotten 20+ MPG for the first 3800 mi.
2. Loose Steering - Electronic steering rather than power steering. Not a problem. You get used to it immediately.
3. Poor turning radius - Again, you get used to it immediately.
4. Cheap coffe cup holder - Yes, but if you are going to make a $20,ooo+ car purchase based on this criterion, you have a totally different problem.
5. Poor visability because of rear seat headrests - Yes, but not a major deal. Even bigger problem is that the six roof support posts are very wide and cut down on visibility for left turns and when passing other vehicles.

Hi Keith, have you seen the postings on EquinoxCentral.com ? That looks like the main board for the Equinox and there are many problems posted there about this truck. I have not had any problems at all but I have gotten concerned when I see all the complaints. Look at these:

Not sure if I should be concerned as my warranty expires.

I just purchased a 2007 Equinox (2/17/07) and had no problems for the first 4 days. Then yesterday, the turn signals wouldn't work and the windshield washer also wouldn't work. I took it immediately to the dealer and while they were checking it out, everything started working. They also discovered that the high beams and emergency flasher also wouldn't work. When I left work in the afternoon, the same thing happened so I was on my way to the dealership and they started working again. Same scenario this morning, except in addition to all of the above, the radio stays on even when the car is shut off and I open the door (it should shut off automatically when the door is opened). So it is back at the dealership this morning. Luckily for me my sister-in-law is the General Manager at the dealership so I have confidence that I will get good service.

I have a equinox 2005 and it has been in the shop 10 times and they still can't find out what is wrong with it. I tell everyone that I know not to by one of these trucks. Keith, I agree with you on the back head rest I'm 4 11 so I have the back seat down so that I can see on when I'm driving.

Sorry it took me so long to reply to you - It turns out it was the Body Control Module which supplies visual and dudible information and controls various vehicle functions (lights, windshield wipers, instrument panel, etc.). Everything is working now and I love my new Equinox.

It sounds like the problem I was having (my earlier post). My problem was the Body Control Module which supplies visual and dudible information and controls various vehicle functions (lights, windshield wipers, instrument panel, etc.). Everything is working now and I love my new Equinox.

2006 Equinox has now been in the shop at least 10 times for different things. body control modual,the gromits in the back hatch leaked and put water into the spare tire conpartment what a stink,fuel sensor,windows chatter as you put them down when it is wet no fix for that yet,a major problem with all years is the paint chips above the doors where the plastic and metal meet of corse i was the only one to complain about that, but I pointed out to several dealers that almost all the viechles on there lots had same thing.Also ignition cylinder binding.Other sensors also replaced and all this withen the first year, teach me to buy a new car!

I have a 2006 Equinox and yesterday I had to get it towed to the dealership because I couldn't get it started. When I put the key in the ignition the key wouldn't turn, it was like it locked me out. Anyone else have this problem?

I own a 2005 Equinox and on 7-23 I went to take the kids to scholl and it would start... nothing worked, not even the keyless remote. I had it towed to the nearest chevy place, and they told me blah blah blah, battery was dead... I had nothing left on except for satilite radio and phone charger. Anyways they got it running & I was ok... this morning... yes less than 2 months after the previous incident, it happened again, I was stranded at work, cussing and fussing. They ran dianostics on it and my battery voltage was low, and the anti theft key deterent had somehow been tampered with, and they told me I needed a new body control module. I just hope that it fixes the problem. And why wasn't this problem found the first time?

My steering went out twice within 6 months of owning my 07 Equinox. It would not steer at all. The DIC says "SERVICE STABILITRAK". Does yours steer at all?

I have a 2006 Equinox that is misfiring on all 6 cylandars. The dealer said it may be the gasoline buildup and cleaned the fuel lines for 149.00! So I left with no guarantee that this would not happen again. Anyone else with this issue?

heater a/c blower quit working at 40000. it would come on sometimes but when it did it ran on high. i found a replacement on the internet. i replaced it and it starting working properly immediately. it worked for 3 days then last night it stopped blowing again. Notice the warranty just ran out. Even pushing poor products out the the public for 10 years they still can't make any money. This will be my last GM vehicle after a 20 years of driving them.
