2.4L in 2016 equinox

Recommended Posts

My wife and I have narrowed our new car search for her down to a few vehicles now. One is the equinox. We test drove a 2.4L equi on Saturday and she liked it.

 

I understand the 2.4 had issues recently and I'm wondering what they were and if they have been redolved?

 

Any help would be appreciated. We don't need the V6. The 2.4 had plenty of power for her.

 

I have over 142,000 miles on the 2.2 ecotec in my 2004 Chevrolet cavalier and it still runs excellent. Are those two engines similar? They have the oil filter in nearly the same location on the top side of the engine.

 

Also does anyone know what's the highest milage 2.4? Are these equinox durable? My wife runs about 20,000 miles per year so it's going to get run hard.

 

Thanks

Greg

Similar to a point. The 2.4 from 2010+up Equinox/Terrain is a direct injection engine. The early couple years are the troublesome ones, from 2010-2012. 2014 and up are trouble free so far with the 2.4 engine.

OK, good to know, thanks for that info. I appreciate that. I was hoping the issues were resolved by now. I'm sure the v6 is a good engine, but we don't need the extra power. The equi we drove was a nice car and ran good. Do they offer incentives like they did on my Silverado when i bought that last year?

 

What do folks typically pay for an awd LT with remote start?

I don't understand how the 2.4L could be enough power for anyone who ever travels on an expressway. I've tried it before. Merging was a nightmare, and if i ever needed to hit the gas to get out of the way, I might as well just hit whatever's in front of me. v6 or bust!
