2014 Chevrolet Equinox: An Oxymoron of a Larger Compact-Crossover SUV

2014 Chevy Equinox

As the largest in the Compact- Crossover Class, the Chevrolet Equinox actually has some experts stymied as to what to do with the vehicle. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) saw fit to put it in the mid-sized SUV class and award it with a Top Safety Pick Plus Award for that class. The Equinox however, is a bit small for the mid-sized SUV class and instead belongs in a category with the Honda CR-V, Ford Escape, and Toyota RAV4.

Giving up some cargo space in favor of passenger comfort the Equinox when powered by the V6 engine is able to tow up to 3,500 pounds, enough to make this a great choice to bring along the weekend toys or head to the hardware store and buy what is needed for a small project in the yard. Offering a fairly standard ride with decent road control and adequate steering the overall feel of the ride in this SUV is pretty much what is expected. The one place the ride is better than the competition is in quietness of the cabin. The Equinox offers such a quiet ride the occupants feel like they are riding in a much more upscale vehicle than a simple SUV.

The GM Recall Nightmare Continues

General Motors Recall

Last month GM announced the recall of 1.5 million small vehicles spanning seven models and three names that were equipped with faulty ignition switches.  So far this recall has cost GM an estimated $300 million, brings into question the validity of their 2009 bankruptcy, and has been responsible for twelve deaths.  These vehicles were manufactured between 2003 and 2007, but that is not where the GM nightmare ends.

In addition to the ignition switch recall, GM has just recently announced three more recalls to vehicles which affects an additional 1.18 million vehicles.  These recalls are for vehicles far newer than the ignition switch recall and shows GM is really trying to address defects proactively rather than wait until the ignition switch mess has been cleared up.
