ReviewThis is the worst car I have ever owned
in my life. Poor engineering, poor
build quality, terrible reliability.
Every time I get in it, I wonder if it
will end up on the tow truck again.
My plastic intake manifold cracked, the
coolant mixed with the oil and
destroyed the engine. Cost 4,000 plus
for a used engine. Other problems
include 10" of water in trunk, failed
steering rack, warped brake rotors,
cracked leather, failed heated seat,
constant electrical problems, broken
door handle, door lock switch fell into
door, burned out (and irreplaceable)
dash lights. AC compressor bearing
grinding, water pump, wonkie
transmission. I rate this car a ZERO,
but the scale doesn't go that low
Best FeaturesThe compass in the mirror. Other than that, nothing.
Worst FeaturesGM should recall these cars and install an aluminum intake manifold (like they have now put back on the 2004's after 8 years of problems. I chased GM all the way to small claims court on this issue. Don't take screw you for an answer. Hound them to death if you have to.
