I reluctantly rented this car for a 1500 mile road trip through 4 mountainous states, becuase it was the only car left with GPS navigation. I was not expecting much, but I was pleasantly surprised. The car is cheap and in many ways cheaply built, however GM put the quality into this car where it counts. The seats are comfortable but lacking in adjustments. This is one of the first automatic transmissions that I don't have to out-think to get the car to do what I want it to do. After driving 1500 miles to several national parks I can say that this was one of the most comfortable road trip cars I have ever driven.
Gas mileage! The handling is much better than I expected. The automatic transmission shifts perfecly, the shift points vary dramatically based on the aggressiveness of the driving. The seats are very supportive for long distance driving. Ipod input and audio controls on the wheel.
Bigger buttons on the steering wheel. The parking brake handle is too close to the console. More seat adjustments would be nice.
