Unfortunately the pedals are not adjustable... I have that feature on my Silverado and it's quite nice..

So I'm not a huge fan of the whole kit, but someone made a body kit that fits the Gen3 Equinox, and it has a longer spoiler on it, which you can buy separetly, and see in this pic:


Anyhow - the full kit is located here. Dunno if that'd solve your problem with the spoiler. Here's the actual link to the spoiler itself:

Thanks for the link but a spoiler is good for gas mileage and handling (if you ever go fast enough to have any significant effect). By causing a vortex behind the car some how.

I have discovered rising the spoiler and turning it into an air scoop is what works to keep the window clean. I have a separate thread with my successful testing results. I will be playing with it this summer to find the optimum height before water and rust proofing it for winter.

Not sure why they missed this, the 2019 Nox has no adjustable seat belt (at least not on AWD LT). Nothing like cutting your neck on the strap. When GM puts them in a cheaper Cruze and Trax, why would they skip them in an Equinox?

I LOVE my 2019 Kinetic Blue baby...but there are a couple of things (okay four) that make me nuts:
1) The chrome trim around the shifter is blinding in the sun. I seriously keep a towel in the car to cover it.
2) The hitch cover will not stay on. I have never used the hitch, nor taken it off...but since it wants to fall off now I have and it lives in the trunk
3) No switch for that stupid Stop/Start (there. I said it.)
4) While handy, the hidey-hole for the umbrella would be super neat if the umbrella would not slide OUT!

With all those nit-picky things pointed out I still LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my Nox. It's leaps and bounds above my 2018 (RIP) that I totaled in January.

Help me out. Where is this "hidey-hole" ? I just throw one in the rear floor-compartment ?

Its in the door under the arm wrest on both sides of the door. When your sitting in it, there is a cup holder in the door there should be a little hot stamped umbrella logo by that cup holder in the door. It slides into that horizontally.

Hi - I put a small piece of black Velcro on the handle end of a collapsible umbrella and put the other piece of Velcro in the back of the hole and the umbrella usually stays in the hole.
