I figured I would give this a shot. I have had no luck on CL as of yet. I will admit, I started my price out high, but I have come in touch with reality. Any takers? Details below.
$6900 - OBO - Really looking to move it.
Located in Rochester Hills, MI 48309
2005 Equinox LT AWD 3.4 V6 - 18-19mpg City - 24mpg Freeway - I document it on every tank.<br>
Black on Grey Cloth Interior
Power Moonroof...Tilt and sliding.
Power driver seat. 6 way I think
AM/FM 6-Disc CD Changer in dash. Premium Sound.
Allow wheels. Freshly rotated and balanced at Discount Tire.
Steering wheel radio controls.
Privacy glass (factory tint) rear windows.
Class 3 hitch - Tow what you want.
This thing is pretty loaded. I believe the only options missing were leather heated seats.
Clean Carfax in hand (or I can email it to you). No accidents. We are the 3rd owners. The vehicle was from Washingtan state originally. The carfax also shows maintenance records dating back to 2004 (yes, when the car was actually sold).
There are a couple door dings. Just normal wear on the paint for a 7 year old vehicle. No structual rust, or rust, period. Paint shines GREAT.
Tires have about 20,000 miles left on them. Kuhmo KR-21's replaced around 100,000 miles by previous owner
Brake pads are around 70% up front. Replaced Spring 2011 with Duralast Gold from Autozone
Front sway bar links were replaced last Spring 2011 also with Duralast parts from Autozone
AC Compressor was replaced last Summer 2011 with a remanfactured unit. Also replaced the AC receiver/drier. System was flushed and refilled with new refrigerant. Ice Cold AC
Transmission flush and fresh fluid (FULL flush and fill at a local shop) 2/4/12
Every part in the front suspension was replaced this passed winter. From the upper strut mounts to the lower control arms, and everything in between. I did all of the work myself as I do all my maintenance on my vehicles. These new parts include both front control arms, ball joints, struts, and upper strut mounts. It also got a front end alignment after all of this was said and done.
I just replaced a caliper carrier on the driver side front 6/15/12 (holds the brake pads in place, was sticking.
4 rubber floor mats are included. They are much more durable than the cloth ones it came with because they trap water and allow it to evaporate instead of soaking it up and holding the moisture.
Tie Rods are in good shape. Did an extensive inspection and actually broke them loose to align it. No issues there. Boots are still in good shape and joints are tight.
Also, I did clay bar and wax the entire thing last summer. Haven't got to it this summer because we've been busy but the paint shines nice. I always wipe out the doors after a car wash to rid the jambs of moisture. We've detailed the inside numerous times to keep it nice and clean.
My fiance and I have taken good care of the car since we've had it. It's really been a good car all together.
Parts that might need attention in the near future:
Rear brakes - They are drums and I haven't touched them. When they are cold, sometimes, I mean, once in a while, they will squeak while idling and braking (l,ike, when rolling to a stop sign on a cool morning drive to work). Not terrible at all, just might need new shoes/drums in the next 6 months - really normal maintenance that hasn't been taken care of.
Rear Suspension - I checked all the bushings and related parts in the winter. They seemed alright, but the rear alignment adjustments were off just a tad. Nothing to be a bother, or to even worry about. Just saying, I've never replaced anything back there.
EGR Valve - This is the exhaust gas return valve. It's an emissions part and really isn't hurting the car in any way. Just sounds like it's developing a leak in the return pipe and honestly is causing no harm leaving it the way it is. I just haven't put out the money to replace it.
