Alright, Ever since I was in highschool, I loved this car. Finally found one and have spent more than I purchased it for ($4,500) on repairs. Its an electrical and mechanical nightmare. The engine is basically shot (needs new heads) Body control module (brain of the car) is shot, control arms are shot, differential is shot. Misc. electric options cease to work. The a/c barely works and the heater doesnt work at all even though ive spent hundreds of dollars trying to remedy it. Its over-heating and low oil pressure (more than likely b/c of the heads). And all that is just to name a little!! The sad part is I bought the car certified and have pampered this car with no love in return.
Design, handling in snow, and thats about it. Everything I once loved has been over-shadowed by all the things that have gone wrong with it
Do not contract a company like Opel to build your cars Cadillac, maybe if it was kept in America, It might not have all the electric and mechanical problems it does. Everything on this car is electronic controlled. And when something goes out, you sure know it in a hurry
