A week with the 2012 Chevrolet Equinox

I’ve been driving a 2008 Ford Escape for almost four years now. Before that, I drove a Jeep Grand Cherokee. I’ve also had a Pontiac, a Plymouth, a Dodge and an Oldsmobile. I absolutely have a thing for American cars. So when GM Northeast offered TheCelebrityCafe.com a week with a Chevy Equinox, I was truly excited to try another American car.
My ideal car would have bucket seats and a Hemi. However, I’m a mom of two girls in booster seats, so that dream is on hold.
As Senior Editor, I primarily work remotely so commuting isn’t a big deal, and while miles per gallon don’t add up as fast, I still need to watch my budget – and the environment for future generations.
I’ve been driving an SUV for a long time now, and have been very resistant to crossovers. As a child of the (late) seventies I grew up with station wagons – you know, before third row seats when you got to ride backwards in the trunk – so to me crossovers were simply prettied up versions of my mom’s generation of station wagons.
