Anyone own one or have an opinion?

They've been out for a few years and I've been thinking of getting one. I'm surprised no one has posted here yet!

Re: Anyone own one or have an opinion?

Some info on the Equinox forum, lots of gas mileage complaints, Consumer Reports seems to like the latest ones, with 4wd and the 4 cyl. it seems to be underpowered at 4100#.

Re: Anyone own one or have an opinion?

I know 2 people that had the 2005 and both had the tranny go out at about 67k. They may have fixed this problem by now but still I would not be happy if it was my car. Other then that seemed to be good. I would check the Ford Edge. Diff in price though.

Are you talking about the same vehicle? The Terrain wasn't made until 2010.

I'd probably go for the 4-banger with just FWD. I've lived this long without AWD through Northeast winters, so no need for it now! haha

Re: Anyone own one or have an opinion?

I on one its a 2011 with 26,000 miles and we love it. We have the 4cyclinder that gets between 30 and 32 miles to the gallon, has plenty of room and I'm a 6ft 300 pound man that even has plenty of room if I ride in the back. I worryed when I bought it about the power of the 4 cyclinder but you can't hardly tell the differance between the 4 or 6 cyclinder. We've had absolutely no problems yet. My sister bout a 2011 equinox and had transmission slipping problems at 5000 miles. Good Look Fiserman

It's wonderful to hear that you're having such a great experience with your Terrain, fiserman! Many more happy miles!

If I can answer any questions about the Terrain (I know you're looking for owner experiences, caddydaddy), please let me know.

No I was guessing what it was. I didn't see you say anywhere what car you where talking about. I just saw someone say Equinox.

Well, this is the Terrain forum, haha!

Did the older Equinox have the same 6 speed transmission that they have now?

Thanks! I'm headed to the New Orleans auto show this weekend. Hopefully there will be someone there that can answer any other questions I come up with.
