Ownership Review of the 2005 Chevrolet Equinox LS 3.4L V6

Car Displayed: 2005 Chevrolet Equinox LS 3.4L V6

The 2005 Chevrolet Equinox LS is a relatively difficult vehicle to maintain, and is only recommended to those capable of vehicle maintenance. Changing the headlight is difficult to do, as you will need to use many tools to complete many steps for access. While the cabin air filter is located in the cowl, it is more difficult to access than usual, as you will need to remove torx bolts. You will have to completely remove the tail light housing for access to the tail light bulbs. This would have been easier if there were access panels in the rear of the vehicle instead.

Some things are easier on the 2005 Chevrolet Equinox LS. Both the front and rear wiper blades are easy to change on this vehicle. Other models will require the use of tools for changing your blades. The engine coolant reservoir is easily visible in the engine bay. This will allow you to check and replenish the fluid level on a regular basis. Checking the oil level with reliability is no problem, as the dipstick is easily accessible in the engine bay.
