2012 Suzuki 4x4 Equinox

Can anyone give me feedback on this truck?

Thank you

Casey, I believe that truck is a re-badged Nissan Frontier built at Nissanís plant in Tennessee(?). I have several friends that drive Nissan Frontiers and they have found them to be reliable and capable.

The Frontier rebadge is called the Suzuki Equator. Equinox is a soccer mom SUV from Chevy.

Thanks for the input guys.

I bought it a little before noon today.

It was a deal that I couldn't refuse.

Yeah, that is a rebadged Frontier. You even have the exact same rims as those on my Frontier. The 4.0 has some guts (assume you have the same engine). Good every day driver and hunting vehicle. Little thirstier than I'd like. What year?

Yep 4.0 I'm used to my old Toyota that had a 4 cylinder in it.

Took off two different times and squealed the tires.

It's a 2012.

I had a Frontier for five years and 156,000 trouble free miles. Traded for a full size Titan. You should be good to go for a long while Casey. I was really strict changing fluids as the manual suggests and my Frontier ran great.

Ran great in the winter in 4H too, got to work and back on a lot of roads where others were stuck or spinning.

I had a 2002 Frontier that I bought with about 20,500 miles on it drove it for about 6+ years and traded it with 167,000 miles. Pretty good little truck. It had a 3.3L V6 and I agree with a comment above that it was a little thirstier than I'd have liked. Other than that it was good.

I had a 1993 Nissan XE and the tranny went on it.

My mechanic said he'd do it for about 1000.00 but who knows I might drive away and the engine might go.

So I junked it with 364,000 miles on it.

I watched it go into the crusher.

I felt like I lost my best friend.

God I miss that truck.
