Well here it is: my wife’s new 2017 Chevrolet Equinox. In the last post, I wrote about the extensive hail damage on our Chevy HHR and how the insurance company totaled it out. We went shopping and after many queries on Google, found exactly what we wanted.
We found a small town dealership that treated us very friendly and we got a great deal. Thank you Clinkscales Chevrolet and Teresa and Edwin for a great experience! Much appreciated.
Our 2017 Chevrolet Equinox is a LT model, with a number of amenities that were just not offered in the HHR. Power comes from a direct injected Ecotec 2.4l engine. It is powerful enough and provides nice fuel economy. The interior is nicely appointed with comfortable power assisted cloth seats, tinted windows, power lift gate, etc. The color is “Velvet Blue” and has a certain purple tint to it under certain light. Finally, the ride is much improved over the HHR. The HHR had a nose-heavy feel to it; the Equinox is more balanced. It is much more quiet too!
So far I’m very pleased. Looking forward to a road trip for a more detailed review… Stay tuned!
