Safety - 2022 Chevrolet Equinox dealer
If you are looking for a vehicle that ranks high marks in safety, this offering from the Chevrolet lineup scores high. The Equinox has several optional and standard features that contribute to its safety ratings, including mandatory features such as airbags, rear view cameras and traction control systems. The Equinox also comes equipped with a forward collision warning system that includes automatic braking, along with lane departure warning and lane-keeping assist. An optional feature for new owners is the OnStar system, which requires a monthly subscription, but which many vehicle owners have found very useful. Other optional safety features include adaptive cruise control, surround view cameras, and parking assist systems. Crash tests for the Equinox have not yet been announced, but are expected to be on par with previous versions of the vehicle.
The Equinox comes with Chevrolet’s standard vehicle warranty which covers basic maintenance, on par with many of Chevy's competitors. Chevy provides one free dealer maintenance within the first year of ownership. This warranty can be upgraded to a 3 year/36,000 mile warranty or a 5 year/60,000 warranty that extends coverage for the vehicle, which might be an attractive option for those who will be doing a lot of driving. These warranties usually come with no deductible, and can be transferred to subsequent purchasers if the vehicle is sold. There are also options for extended factory maintenance, as well as pre-paid maintenance, and tire and wheel protection plans, some of which are not offered by all dealers, but are offered by dealerships in the Vallejo area.
