Single mum here, trying to buy an Equinox. I'm a Chevy whore, longtime Malibu driver and I need an SUV and the Equinox has been on my drool list for months. I am finding many in my price range but they all have ALOT of miles... Over 100k and even over 200K!
Would you buy an Equinox with this many miles? Would that be dependable for my plus kids?

Well...All depends on the year you're looking at.
My Equinox was a 2005 LT and traded it in 2010 as soon as my "extended warranty" was over, it had 40K's on it.
It was a good thing that I had purchased that extended warranty because it would have emptied my bank account.
Lots of 2005 and 2006 models were "junk"... problems with no end. I'm not saying all of them are bad but those first years are reported as bad years (especially the 2005 model).
Bought a 2010 Chevrolet HHR 2LT. It's 110% more dependable, fun to drive and less gas guzzler than the Equinox (even if I have the 2.4L engine) that develops as must "pep" as my Equijunk did.

I think that by now (almost 5 months) "techprincesse" has made her move.
Yoohoo! Still there "techprincesse"?
