Avoid dealing with car troubles down the road and opt for a reliable, high performing used Chevrolet Equinox. So which years should you be looking at?
With a general reliability rating of 3.5/5, the Equinox will perform relatively well regardless of the year. Nevertheless, some will certainly have more to offer than others. The best years for the Chevy Equinox are:
  • 2008
  • 2009
  • 2011
  • 2017
  • 2018
  • 2021
On the other hand, the worst years for the Equinox are:
  • 2005
  • 2007
  • 2013
  • 2014
  • 2015
  • 2016
Coming in at number 1 as the best year for the Chevy Equinox is 2008. With a spacious cabin, impressive crash test scores, and excellent reliability scores, this model year won’t disappoint.
While looking for the right model, consider protecting yourself with car insurance. With an older, used model, your Chevy insurance costs will be lower than you might expect!
