This vehicle was amazing when i first purchased it. But then it went downhill from there. Once one thing broke down. Then another. I had parts quitting on me one right after another. I have practically replaced all major parts. Getting ready to replace the alternator.

Like another reviewer, I really want to
love this car, and I have. The size is
perfect inside (plenty big enough) and
out (not an SUV monstrosity); it
handles well and is generally a
pleasure to drive. BUT - just had to
replace the alternator and tensioner
belt, and the bladder for the power
brakes, all separate events two weeks
after my extended warranty expired.
Sad to say, I got my money's worth on
the ext warrty too - ABS replacement at
40K; numerous brake issues and recalls;
have never been happy with the braking
on this car. At this point, I am
getting rid of this poorly made vehicle
as soon as I have time to buy somethng -
no more chevy's for me!
