Don't buy this car used!

I bought this car used and the interior fell apart within weeks of bringing it home. As many others have stated, the intake manifold issue was the last straw. If you only had to pay $800 you were lucky, I paid 1500 and still have issues with overheating, leaking etc. I've replaced the transmission. The seats weigh a ton and are hard to get out and are hard to get back in. We still own it, but only because we would never get back the money we put into it. If anyone tries to sell you this car and the intake manifold has not been replaced, don't buy it!
I did love the fact that it was roomy. I drive a Corolla now and I miss all the room I had. I really like the audio system, it had cool features.
I might still be a GM customer if they had done the right thing and recalled the intake manifold/gasket issue. They lost me when I had to pay that 1500 for something they were aware of and could have prevented.
