I've had this car for about 18 months. I purchased it as a bit of a compromise. It has many nice features, had some zip, yet also had front wheel drive for northern winters. Turns out, not much of a compromise. Driving this car never fails to put a smile on my face. When you step on the gas, you're gone! It is by no means a high performance sports car. You can quibble about numb steering and other pretentious car guy stuff, but it has great muscle and a fun factor. The average guy, of which I am one, will have a great time with this car. A real plus, especially given $4+ gas, has been the mileage. I get 22 around town and more than 26 on a recent 1200 road trip.
5.3L V8 has great punch, the ability to shut down 4 cylinders when cruising for improved mpg, the rumble!, red jewel coat paint, Bose system, never be without OnStar!
Seats could provide more support, onboard navigation system, express up and down windows, memory seat settings
