I have been test driving the v three, five and the Chevrolet Equinox. I am just not sure about the drivers seat comfort. It's a little hard to tell in a short test drive. My wife said she was more comfortable in the five. Are the seats in the five the same basic construction as the three? I thought the softex look and feel might have influenced our first impression. The seats in the vâ€™s are a little plain Jane compared to the Chevrolet Equinox. I keep my vehicles for 200K miles and don't want to buy something I might be disappointed with a few months from now.
