Bought this car, with 13,000 miles, and about 8 months old. Car now has 170,000 miles. First set of tires, lasted over 140,000 miles, there has been only one set of new rotors and two sets of brakes put on this car since new. Runs absolutely great, original plug's lasted 160,000 miles, just recently changed them. Have had some problem's with the air conditioner, having to do with the way Chevrolet designed the system to work. Based on sensors, as to where they do or do not respond properly. Every problem that this car has had I fixed myself, as they were minor. This is and has been a great car.
Great engine, very good mileage, especially for size. Why anyone would give $20,000 for a little piece of nothing that gets 32 miles per gal, and pass the Chevy Impala, that gets the same mileage, needs to do some serious thinking about what they are getting for their money.
tThe rack and pinion steering system that Chevy used on these cars were most all defective, but were fixable and not a real serious problem. Chevy should have recalled and stopped using them instead of continuing for a number of years using the same defective parts.
