    3-month report on my 2022, and questions

    For anyone interested, my 2022 Equinox LT is exactly 3 months old, with about 3,500 miles on the clock (about average, I guess) - mostly freeway driving, some city. Reported average MPG is 29.7. I have checked the oil from time to time - down maybe 1 mm on the dipstick (i.e. very little oil...

    USB stick not recognized by 2020 Equinox

    No solution, songbird87. Only to say that my 22 'nox has had the same behavior since day one, and others have reported this too. Mine will recognize the thumb drive sometimes, other times not.

The key thing to note is that WITHOUT ANY OnStar subscription, nav still works. It relies on map data...

    Hey ricktack: I just got a '22 (build date 6/22) LT, with nav. Dealer can't tell me: Do I need an OnStar subscription in order to use the built-in nav functions (I don't want one)? I.e. do you have an OnStar subscription? (FWIW I'm not getting the SD-Card error messages - hopefully they've...

    2022 Equinox LT, loaded

    Hi all... I'm new here. Just bought a new 2022 Chev. Equinox LT - silver/black, has 'confidence & convenience', 'infotainment', and 'advanced safety' packages. Traded in a 2015 GMC Terrain (pretty much its twin, in case you don't know) Glad to meet you all! I'll lurk here for a while, then...
