as far as major repairs, this car has only needed the alternator, the solenoid, and the battery switched in 6 years of owning it. veeery dependable. drove from texas to washington state and back with no problems. reliable gas mileage for a GM car. trading this one in for a sebring lx coupe...going to be very sad to see this one go. can literally run forever with very little maintainence.
the style of the dash i like. you shift inside of the steering column. it doesn't look it, but very roomy for as small a car it is. it's more of a long car than it is small. ez to park.
please god I wish they'd done something with the back bumper! that's about it. that, and i wish it had a bit more "pep" to the engine. always going slower than everyone else on the road. not the same 60 or 70.
