I've had my Holden Equinox LT now for about a year. Am fairly happy with it. I do roughly about 400km a week for work and driving around town which costs me about $30 .Performance wise it has been great. I usually use the cruise control on the highway and going up hills is a breeze. The car is still under warranty so I get it serviced annually. No issues at this stage. Inside the car is very comfortable. No CD player anymore its all plug into your devices or Bluetooth. Great sound through speakers. Front seating has individual heat warmers. Gre...at air-con and demisters for the front and rear windows.Rear view camera for reversing and sensors also for parking. It also has a 12v plug in centre console if you require one. Lighting is good in the car but does not have a light in the glove box. Plenty of room in the rear if you need to carry something. Car also receives incoming calls and texts without your hands leaving the steering wheel. Many other functions as well such as speed alert, fuel consumption ,distance to empty. Also has a great GPS but is not up to date with new roads. Overral a great car good on fuel, easy to drive and good for registration.

Comfortable Seats. Smooth Ride. Plenty of Power.
Purchased the Holden Equinox LT a week ago. Used daily for general commuting and family transport.
So far, so good. The seats are quite comfortable. The ride is smooth. Power great. Gadgets a-plenty (I'm still learning them all). Yet to find out what the fuel consumption is like, however looking at others' comments, am hoping it will be reasonable. Will update my thoughts in a couple of months, but so far, we're quite happy with it.
Fantastic car, reliable and comfortable
I have had an Equinox for about a month now for daily commuting and weekend trips away and it is an exceptionally impressive car. Extremely quiet on the road, engine and gearbox well suited to the vehicle, safety technology works well and it just feels well put together. I have driven Foresters, CX5s, Koleos and the Equinox is far better value for the money. The Equinox has been rated as one of the most reliable medium SUVs in the USA and I can see why.

Had our car for 2 months no faults found at all. Great fuel economy and power from the 2 litre turbo engine and 9 speed auto. Great drive on the open highway and around the suburbs. Would be nice to have adaptive cruise but not essential. Great safety features for the cost. Love this car.
Had this car as a loaner and was very surprised. Drives very well, heaps of power (2 litre turbo model), and heaps of safety features. Not sure on long term, as I only had the car for a week. The AWD system was amazing in the wet, and overall the car felt great to drive. A huge leap forward over the Captiva.
Love my new car
I use my car for both private and work every day.It drives really smooth and white looks amazing.
I haven't mastered the radio stations as yet but the service center said they would help! I am still getting used to not using a key but that is so convenient
My car is due for it's first service next week
Amazing car, heaps of power and safety kit
I find my Equinox LS+ eats up the Hwys and hills and performs past my expectations of an SUV, over Easter we drove it from Victoria to Merimbula NSW on a 660km trip, it did it all on one tank of regular 91 octane fuel. The last 100kms were all up hill, the Equinox didn't even break a sweat, we just set the cruise to 100km/h and effortless powered up hills. We had the car fully loaded, and found that other SUV's had to drop their speed, we also still had plenty of power on tap to overtake trucks/caravans ect, all while being refined and quiet. I...t was really comfortable, had plenty room for our camping gear, and made the 7.5 hour road trip a comfortable one. I average around 7-8.5lt per 100, the best I've seen is 6.1, for a car its size I'm really impressed. I have put over 6500kms on it and cannot fault the car at all. If you want an SUV that is still affordable and has the most safety features, and power in its class, I don't think you could go past the Holden Equinox!

A great new model to shake up the large established field of great mid-sized SUV's
This car ticked all our boxes.
Powerful engine, auto trans, interior comfort, AWD, dual zone climate control, heaps of driver aids and safety features. The car drives like a dream. Downsides include requirement for premium 95ULP fuel, firm ride, and a very basic Satnav that doesn't include all speed limits, an over-speed alert, speed and red light camera locations. Every car has its shortcomings!

Great car. Perfect for us
Had car for 2500 kms. Can't fault it. Just driven to and from port Lincoln 1700 kms. Over various roads. Did not miss a beat. The 2 litre turbo has plenty of punch
Even wife enjoyed driving long distances.
Great accessories. H link worked well
