Guide: 5=Perfect; 3=Good; 1=Poor
Pros: What do you like about your 2005 Chevrolet Equinox?
Handles excellent, the steering is nice and tight. It sits up higher than some other small SUVs. Seats are firm and comfortable. Stereo does what it is supposed to do. Gas mileage is not bad, just average, but okay. I loaded the back full of mortar and blocks a few weeks ago, and it still drove great.
Cons: How would you improve your 2005 Chevrolet Equinox?
The brakes seem to have an issue that we cannot resolve. We bought it used with 110k. We upgraded the pads to the most expensive that Autozone carries. It took away the vibration and noise, but in a few weeks it came back. Rotors are in good shape, so I'm not sure what's causing that. Other than that, the interior stains when wet, (even with rain water). Lastly, the paint has been chipping off of the climate controls and radio dials.
2005 Chevrolet Equinox Review:
It's a pretty decent vehicle. It was fairly cheap, fit in our budget, and is also big enough for our toddler and her 3,000 stuffed animals. It can haul a fair load. Other than the braking issues, I would definitely recommend the Equinox.
