A money pit

One headache after another: Oil leaks, new fuel and brake lines needed, brakes and rotors needed frequent replacement, rear door hatch did not work properly, nor did the windshield wiper fluid nozzle in the rear. Ball joints and U joints were bad. Gas gauge did not work. Emergency brake issues. Alternator and starter were bad. Vanity light would not turn off, slowly draining the battery , which had to be replaced twice already. Numerous other issues to mention. We got rid of it before it died completely. We could have almost purchased another vehicle for the money we put into it just to keep it running. We will never buy another one.
CD player and sound system were good. The heater and air conditioner worked well. It towed a heavy trailer with an ATV with no trouble when it was running.
Start putting more quality into the design and building processes or expect sales to plummet. Not a lot of horsepower, but no big deal. If only they didn't break down every other month Chevy could sell more of these. No one will buy junk if they are hip to the problems of this vehicle.
