Purchased this vehicle last week and
have put about 250 miles on the
odometer. Chevrolet may have a winner
here. Haven't considered a Chevy in 22
years, but it stacked up well against
the VW Passat, Honda Accord, and Mazda6
that we also considered. Pushrod V6
provides plenty of power (200 HP) and
lots of torque (220 ftlb). Loaded with
useful features and plenty of room (101
cu ft EPA passenger space). Averaging
over 22 MPG in mostly city driving so
far. Chevy's attempt at a "manu-matic"
shift lever needs work. 4th gear
cannot be selected in manual mode.
Factory Installed Remote Starter
Cost vs competition
Folding front passenger seat
Heated front seats
Smallish Instruments (especially tach)
Quirky trans lever in manual mode
