 I had an Equinox for 12 years. After about 7 or 8 years, it started using a lot of oil. The car was checked for leaks at the Chevy dealer service dept,  but there were none.  I just made sure I checked it every week and added as necessary. Oil was a regular item on my shopping list.

I have a 2015 Equinox and have had no problems whatsoever!

 

Love that car!

I have no experience with this but I gave Google a look using “chevy equinox oil consumption” as search criteria. Results were worth examining. 

 

Perhaps reading about class action lawsuits regarding Equinox oil consumption problems will provide insight.

Re: Chevy Equinox

I have a 2013 Equinox, purchased new, no problems with oil. I have On Star which sends me a email update monthly on oil life, tire pressure and  any other diagnostic issues with the SUV.

Our son in law has a year old Equinox and loves it.  He has a long commute every day and no problems.

Re: Chevy Equinox

Like @IG , ours is a 2015 and we've had no problems. It's low mileage so I hope nothing crops up.

@Auntg 

 

Mine has very low mileage too and I've had it for 2 years, with no oil problems.

 

In reading some of the above links the suit involves year models 2010-2013, so hopefully we're safe!

My husband has a 2013 Equinox and I have a 2018 Equinox.

 

Neither of us has had any problems with them.

Re: Chevy Equinox

I am on my third Equinox and love it!  No oil problems here.

The next time that I hear salt and ice together, it better be in a margarita!
