I am impressed with the quiet ride of this car. I own 2 other Chevrolets and this one is the best riding car of them all. It is very solid and for a car in this price range, I am impressed. I bought it for fuel economy, and on my first long trip of about 500 miles, got over 32 mpg. I bought the stick shift and it is smooth and fun to drive.
The sports package adds a lot of nice extras for less than $600. Radio controls on the steering wheel and the Pioneer speaker system make for great music and ease of use. I also like the side curtain air bags, another extra.
My vehicle came with 2 paint problems which have since been repaired, but it should never have left the factory with those areas needing fixed.
