I love to drive this car and I think it is beautiful. However, there is something going bad about every month. New alternator, 30k miles, brake rotors turned 60k, new pistons, water pump, bearings 65k, all under warranty. Other repairs, about $3000. in 15 different repairs all before 95,000 miles. Bose radio is very good however the CD and cassett player has no tone control. Compared mine with new Cadillacs and found the same thing. Changing the Bass up or down made no difference. Complained to dealer and they said that is just the way the Bose is. Complained to Bose and never got a response. We never listen to music on this junk sound system. A friend also had new pistons in his 2002 Cad.
Have always bought American cars and would like to continue but if this is the best GM can do, who knows. Gets about 27 to 28 mpg on the highway. Why would anyone buy a small cracker box to get only a couple mpg better?
Make it more dependable and if Bose can't figure out how to get some sound controls that work on the CD player, GM should find another sound system. Perhaps the JBL. Dan
