Bought this car in late Feb 09, have put roughly 8600 miles (Aug 09) on it since then and am still very pleased with my choice. For reference I replaced a 99 Malibu. Exterior is amazing, still draws comments and gawking stares, corners extremely well for its size. Interior is a lil uninspired, strongly recommend the sunroof to avoid a cave- like feeling. Very comfortable though and plenty of room in the back seat and trunk. 0-60 seems a lil lacking, but 60-80 is near instantaneous. Putting an exhaust on it soon, a lil quiet for a sports car. Engine bay is large, plenty of mod space. very reliable, NO mechanical issues to date. Gas mileage is about 23mpg combined highway/city. Love this car.
Sexy exterior looks Corners very sharply Smooth shifting transmission Comfortable seating Plenty of interior room Big trunk Good gas mileage Can turn off electronic stability
Make anti-lock brakes standard Redesign the interior Ramp up the V6's horsepower a bit Driver-side access to rear seat
