Why the 2010 Chevrolet Equinox?

Fuel economy

THE FUEL ECONOMY IS GREAT, i DRIVE ABOUT 25 TO 50,000 MILES PER YEAR THIS CAR HAS A 2.4 L - FOUR-CYLINDER ENGINE i WAS GETTING ON THE AVERAGE 22 TO 25 MILES PER GALLON THIS IS A GREAT PLUS FOR THIS CAR

Interior styling

i LOVE THE INTERIOR, IT HAS PLENTY OF 12 v POWER OUTLET FOR WHICH i NEED i HAVE A DASH CAM, RADAR DETECTOR, AND A GPS ALONG WITH MY CELL PHONE CONNECTION AND IT IS ALL EASY TO HOOK UP. iT ALSO HAS LEG ROOM IN THE FRONT AND IS VERY COMFORTABLE, YOU CAN CARRY FIVE PEOPLE EASILY WITH A LOT OF LEGROOM IN THE BACK, YOU ALSO HAVE A LOT OF STORAGE SPACE IN THE BACK HATCH AREA. BETWEEN THE FUEL ECONOMY AND THE ROOMINESS OF THE INSIDE IS THE BEST THINGS GOING FOR THIS CAR.

Why Not the 2010 Chevrolet Equinox?

Powertrain performance

THIS CAR HAS DONE NOTHING BUT BURN OIL SINCE THE DAY i BOUGHT IT IT STARTED OUT WITH BURNING 1 QUART OF OIL IN BETWEEN OIL CHANGES,BY THE TIME i HAD 20,000 MILES ON THE CAR IT WAS BURNING BETWEEN TWO AND 3 QUARTS OF OIL IN BETWEEN OIL CHANGES BY THE TIME i GOT 50,000 MILES IT WOULD BURN BETWEEN FOUR AND 5 QUARTS OIL IN BETWEEN OIL CHANGES NEEDLESS TO SAY AT 20,000 MILES i STARTED COMPLAINING TO THE SERVICE DEPARTMENT AT MONUMENT CHEVROLET I EVEN OPENED A COMPLAINT WITH GENERAL MOTORS THE DEALERSHIP KEPT TELLING ME THAT IT IS OKAY AND NORMAL FOR A CAR TO BURN HALF QUART OIL FOR EVERY THOUSAND MILES SO THEY CANNOT DO NOTHING FIND MY WARRANTY RAN OUT i KEPT TELLING THEM IT WAS THE RINGS BUT THEY WOULDN'T LISTEN BY THE TIME i HAD 150,000 MILES IT WAS GOING THROUGH A COURT EVERY 300 MILES BY i GOT SO MAD i WENT TO THE OWNERS OF MONUMENT CHEVROLETAND THEY FINALLY DECIDE TO DO THE RINGS AND PISTONS ANYWAY THEY CHARGED ME HALF THE PRICE FOR DOING THE RINGS AND PISTONS SO i GET THE CAR BACK i GO OUT OF TOWN CHECK ENGINE LIGHT COMES ON TELLS ME THAT THE CATALYTIC CONVERTER IS GOING OUT SO BY THE TIME i GET THE CAR BACK TO mONUMENT cHEVROLET ZERO 420 CODE WHEN OFF AND A 0020 CODE CAME ON SOMETHING ABOUT THE CAM SENSORS SO THEY DECIDED TO REPLACE THE SENSORS THEY DID DO THAT AT NO CHARGE BUT SOON AS i LEFT THE DEALERSHIP THE CODE FOR THE CATALYTIC CONVERTER COME BACK ON SO NOW THEY WANT $900 FOR A CATALYTIC CONVERTER i FEEL THAT THEY SHOULD REPLACE THAT ALSO THIS CAR HAS BEEN A NIGHTMARE AS FAR AS THE OIL CONSUMPTION GOES MY CAR IS NOT THE ONLY ONE DOING THIS, AND THEY SHOULD OF REPLACE THIS MOTOR WHEN IT FIRST STARTED HAPPENING i WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER cHEVY AGAIN ESPECIALLY FROM mONUMENT cHEVROLET THIS WAS MY THIRD EQUINOX i BOUGHT FROM THEM THE 2008 SIX CYLINDERS ARE A GREAT CAR, STAY AWAY FROM THE 2.4 l FOUR-CYLINDER ENGINES THESE MOTORS ARE NO GOOD JUST LOOK UP OIL CONSUMPTION ON THE iNTERNET YOU'LL SEE NOT TO BUY IT i JUST WISH i WOULD'VE KNOWN THIS BEFORE i BOUGHT IT
