Love the AWD system in the 08 equinox, we've had 20 cm of snow and -25 C temp, in the last 6 days and this truck just bears down and claws right through the snow. Amazed.
GM has been very good with us we had the original battery replaced just last friday because it was shorting out and not holding a proper charge. Really showed up when the temp goes down to -20 -30 celuis when you need alot of cold cranking amps to start the vehicle..

Same here but played in 30 cm. of snow with my 05 FWD. Equinox. I'm starting my 4 th winter and never had problems. This year even better because I'm on winter tires for the first time.

The Equinox would have superb traction with winter tires, I have great traction going forward but not so good braking traction. A set of nokia winter tires 235/60/17 for my LT equinox and it will handle any ice snow covered roads. Just like the weather we are having now.
#6 of 7 sounds like a airplane landing

First, were does the sound seems to be coming from?
Let be tell you what happened with my 05 Equinox, could be the same thing.
There was a humming sound coming from the back and I made some little tests to see what it could be.
When rolling I put the truck in neutral, the sound was still there, rev the motor, the sound didn't change, put the truck in park (motor running), no humming sound. The faster I drove, the higher the sound was. It was a sound like I'd be rolling on tractor tires. Letting the truck roll by itself (on neutral) the sound would change when the truck was slowing down, going down a hill on neutral the sound would change picking up speed.
Had to change a left rear wheel hub bearing. That was it, no more humming sound, it was riding on air.
Hope this helps.
