Chevrolet Equinox Prices Paid and Buying Experience

    That does seem a bit high. I just bought my FWD LT yesterday for 24,012 and it has every available feature, including the Onstar, head and side airbags, trailering package, sunroof, heated front seats, etc, and it only had 292 miles on it. My vehicle was purchased in the Atlanta Metro area.

    Happy Shopping!

    This is in the Cincinnati area. I am not going to do it if I can't get them to go down more. I hate this! I just don't know what is considered reasonable.

    I looked on the Chevy website for dealers in the Cincinnati area, and then searched for their individual websites for information on their pre-owned vehicles. It looks like pricing in your area is a bit higher than prices down in the Southeast. This is what I found at two different dealerships:

    1. Terry Lee Chevrolet:

    2005 Chevy Equinox LT AWD
    Black Exterior
    List Price: $22,988.00
    Mileage: 17,931
    VIN: 2CNDL73F256040723
    **Website includes pictures and options list**

    2. Jake Sweeney Chevrolet:

    2005 Chevy Equinox LT AWD
    Red Exterior
    List Price: $20,588.00
    Mileage: 16,079
    VIN: 2CNDL73FX56001460
    *Website has details but no photos of the vehicle*
    *Website does list Kelly Blue Book Value as $23,800*

    Hope this helps! : :)
  • Thanks so much for doing that. That is interesting b/c those are two places I haven't been talking to. I ended up walking out on the deal b/c they just couldn't come down. I guess I just can't afford an LT at this time and I was so unhappy with the cloth seats. I can't believe they made them that uncomfortable. Thanks for all of your help!!! Enjoy your's.
  • Hi,

    What are the lease terms for a 05 or 06 Nox (LS, LT)? How much down payment and per month? US price and Canada price!

  • My wife and I are interested in leasing an Equinox. The ads are for 259 a month but only after 5000 down. We just want to lease for 259 a month with no down payments. 12,000 miles a month 48 month lease. Our intention is to have one vehicle we lease and turn over every 3 years. This will help prevent us from having two vehicles with maintanance. We currently have two used vehicles and I don't mind routine maintanace, but am tired of playing muscial cars with the dealership every couple of months over small piddly little things. We have never leased before and don't have money to put down. Any information or suggestions would be helpful.

  • Bought my new 2006 Equinox today. Pick it up from the dealer tomorrow. I got the base LS in silver with the roof rack cross bars and floor mats for 18120 on the road. With all the incentives and my GM Card points it was a pretty sweet deal. This is my second car in a row from Canada. I had an 02 Camaro until I played Nascar with it (may she rest in peace). How ironic considering my user name! Any way, I hope this one holds up as well as all of my other Chevys and Pontiacs have.
  • What a sweet ride! Chevy has come a long way with this vehicle. This has to be the most refined vehicle in its class. The ride is unbelievably smooth. It must be the long wheel base. The electonic steering adds a whole new dimension to power steering, a great refinement. I can't believe all the standard features and a peppy V6 too! I am still learning all the buttons. Don't buy one without looking at the galaxy silver one first. The silver and black go great together. Took it over the marina tonight, a real head turner. If you are in the market for all of the rebates are not currently being published. There is a 1000 cash back, 750 bonus cash back, and a 1000 loyalty or conquest cash. You need to persuade for the loyalty rebate. I only paid like 16,700 plus tax and tags. I feel like I stole it.

    Did you get a base LS without option? So the price before all the rebates is 16700+2750=19450? If you did get the base version, that's $500 below invoice! Congrats to you!

    Bought a 06 FWD LT today with the Head Curtain and Roof Rails.

    Paid 21,700 plus TTL. 0% for 72 months.

    Couldn't be happier. And the 0% on the last day of the month means happy dealing!!
  • i bought the ls model with the extra alloy wheels for $17,300 plus TTL.
  • 19400 + TTL in CA

    I just got a used 2005'Nox LT AWD with 34k miles on it for 13,200 from a dealer in VA. No leather or sunroof but all the rest. Dealer was asking for 15k. I don't know what the specific color is but some say it is blue and some say it is purple. Bought if for the wife so she would stop beating up my other vehicles and she absolutely loves it.

    Congratulations! I'm sure your Nox will bring you lots of joy. Mine is a 2005 LT as well but FWD and the color is the same "blue". The real name of that color is "Laser Blue" and yes sometimes it's blue and it appears to change to purple, depending on the light or sun direction. It's realy weird.

    I actually drove it to work this morning. Wifey was mad at me for taking it but while it is new (to us)I wanted a chance to play with it, too!
  • I am a little confused. You get a 3 year / 36,000 mile bumper to bumper warranty with a new equinox. The CD player should be replaced if they can't fix it and the only reason they won't, is if you created the problem by the customer. If it is a manufacturer defect, they will replace it.
  • We picked up a 2007 Equinox- ISb package. After we signed all the papers etc, we did the walk around and noticed some issues. There was light scuffing marks on the hood. The arm rest on the driver side was dirty. Worse of all a scratch on the tailgate. Didn't seem to have a choice but to take delivery with promises to deal with the issues.

    The hood scuffs and the driver door came out ok. The scratch on the tailgate won't buff it. Its beneath the clear coat (you can feel the divot with your fingernail). They touched it up and buffed it, but you can see the scratch still and feel it as well. Its about an inch long, with one side deeper than the other

    They've offered to paint the tailgate for us. Not sure I want to do that- given that the paint shop job will not be as durable as the factory paint.

    What would you do? If you don't think we should have it painted, should we expect some kind of "compensation".
  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 27,704
    I wouldn't paint the tailgate for a 1" scratch..

    Maybe they would throw in an oil change? Not sure you'll get any compensation if you've taken delivery.. They have already offered to paint the tailgate.. which is probably all they can do..

    You'll have a door ding within a month and forget all about it, I'm guessing... ;)
