I am biased to GM as I work for them but this car has been nothing but a pleasure. I've replaced one wheel bearing since 2004. It has great fuel economy on the highway, not great in the city. The car is plain and nobody notices it which is nice when it's parked in a lot overnight. One tip don't skimp on brake parts. Mine squeak constantly and have before when I've used so-so parts.
Mileage on highway, cruise control
none, it's a simple plain car and that's what I wanted. If you want something snazzy or built for comfort this is not the car for you.
