Based upon problems people have been having with some of the 4 cyl. '11 models, I would buy either a 6 cyl. '11, or a 4 cyl. '12. My '10 4 cyl. has been flawless.hyperman said:Hi
I am new to the forum. We are considering a 2011 or 2012 Equinox. Test drove the 4 and 6 cylinder. Leaning towards the 4 but would like to hear from 4 owners on whether they regret purchasing it.
Me too, most of my driving has been during the summer at our summer place. Mileage was ok, not spectactular, but ok. Now that we are home for the winter, I checked today and my avg MPH was 16 and my MPG was 19. This summer my MPH was in the 30 or 40s and the MPG correspondingly higher.RNOX said:Test drive both .. See which one you like. I prefer a 4 cyl for the gas mileage and lower inital cost. The HP is high for a 4. When checking the mileage make sure you look at the average speed. When I fill up the tank I reset the trip and the average speed setting on the DIC. I almost always overestimate my average speed.
