Hi everyone. A week and a half ago I traded in my 2008 Dodge Nitro for a Certified 2011 2lt Equinox.
The Dodge was nice, but the ride was very harsh and gas mileage was not the greatest.
We opted for the FWD 4cyl, and I hope it gets around good in my Nebraska winters! Lately, they haven't been bad at all and I hardly used the 4WD in the Nitro.
I bought a K&N filter for it yesterday, got one used (5k miles) for $18 including shipping!
So far, I am impressed with the peppy 4cyl and the mpg!

I'm sure the Equinox is a really nice upgrade over the Nitro!

I recently took it on a trip through the mountains in Colorado. I have the FWD 4Cyl 2lt. I kept the ECON mode on and got 31.1mpg with heavy mountain driving and interstate driving. Not too bad! The ride was comfortable for an 11 road trip too!
