Default New Nox Owner!

Hi guys...I just got a 2014 Equinox 2LT AWD last week! It's Tungsten Metallic with the 2.4L Eco. Love the car so far but I really wish it had the 3.5L! It runs great but just doesn't have any balls! It does have lots of cool features like the MyLink, heated seats, Pioneer system and power driver seat. I actually bought a 13 Escape Titanium first but it had stalling/electrical issues after the first 2 days so we traded it to the dealer for the Nox! The Titanium was loaded. LOADED!! It even had HID lights and proximity unlock! But the Escape platform was entry level to say the best. I do find the Nox more mature and elegant compared to the Escape. It also has much more room and comfort than the Escape. But I am glad we got out from under the problem car and into a new Nox! I've never been a Chevy guy but I can really dig this new Equinox! Now, to just get over the 3.5L V6 Envy!

Yeah that 3.5L Honda motor was quick! I had a Saturn Vue and it had that drive train. I'm think it was also in the older Equinox's.

I would love to have a newer Equinox with the 3.6 but I am content with the 3.0...

Thanks guys! Yeah, the 2.4 is growing on me! It is adequate...I'm just used to barely touching the throttle on my 13 Hemi Ram and getting pushed back in the seat, LOL! Not so much with the Nox but it gets the job done! My wife likes it as well and she is the primary driver so, if she's happy...I'm happy!

I'd like to put some 3M color stable 20% tint on the front side glass but that will be after some of the other more important accessories like mud flaps, vent visors and bug shield!

Man, I like this forum's layout better than the 'red' one but I think your Facebook page is strangling the actual forum!

I already added OEM splash guards...ordering a set of AVS vent visors soon. I might also black out the bowties and possibly add a hood protector.

Here is another pic just before I added the guards...still need to take an 'after' pic!
