Phil here. Just purchased a 2011 1LT V6 Equinox beginning of the month. 600+ miles on it so far. Hoping for the same reliability as my '02 Impala. Had the intake gasket go on that one (fixed it myself), but other than that, it's been solid so far for 145k miles.

Transmission on this 'Nox seems a little soft to me. Also not too crazy about the liftgate touchpad and cruise control controls. Seats are good. First tank of gas (mostly in-town driving) got 21.5 mpg - which beats the EPA sticker by 4 mpg. If I beat the highway estimate by the same amount, that'll be 28 mpg and over 500 miles comfortably to the tank, which is acceptable to me.
