I totally loved this car when I bought
it new 4 years ago, soon after I began
having more and more problems: the CD
player broke, the dash creaked(had it
replaced 2x, the last time it cracked
in half), battery leaked acid all over
engine(most of the repairs not
covered under warranty), air
conditioner makes terrible sounds when
idling(dealer mech. said this car was
cheap and bottom of line), horrible
sounds coming from tires(dealer mech.
couldn't hear it???), had to be towed
to the dealership twice because it
wouldn't start, the accessory fuse
shorted after the first use(had the
short fixed but it happened again), had
fuel pump replaced...only has 22K miles.
I loved the sporty look and feel when I
drove it, but I had so many problems
with it that I decided to sell it and
by a new Toyota Corolla instead, it is
sporty and has a five star crash
I CAN NOT BELIEVE A CAR THIS UNSAFE IN
CRASH TESTS(ONE AND TWO STARS OUT OF
FIVE)(A CERTAIN DEATH TRAP OR AS I LIKE
TO TELL MY PASSENGERS "HOPE YOU DON'T
MIND BROKEN HIPS")WOULD BE AVAILIABLE
FOR SALE IN THE US. SHAME ON GM FOR
WANTING TO MAKE A QUICK BUCK ON
AN "AFFORDABLE" CAR.
