Review

I love my Acheiva.....I was in an accident in 2000,I was stopped at a red light and someone hit me from behind and then I hit the car in front of me...so the car was like an accordian..had close to 9,000 damage. But I got it back good as new. The only problems since then was the replacement of the passenger right side window power moter, alternator, and battery.


Best Features

I love the sporty look of the car.

Review

This car is pretty fun to drive with decent fuel economy. The seats aren't the most comfortable, but they are quite durable. The interior is roomy and laid out well. I especially like the height of the armrest. A few problems: The drivers' side door molding is loose and the motor for the power window has pretty much failed. I also had to replace the alternator and the battery. The cassette tape player died, but the radio still works. Other than those issues, the car has been very reliable.


Best Features

Power and fuel economoy of the V-6, spaciousness, reliable transportation, cruise control.


Worst Features

The power windows could be higher quality, the seats a little more comfortable.

Review

I have had my Achieva for over 4 years now and I have had no major problems. The only problems I have ever experienced are usually due to maintenance. I recently had an accident with it and had to have the whole vehicle repainted. I plan to hang on to this car as long as I can!


Best Features

I love how the driver's seat is like sitting in a cockpit.

Review

This is my first time driving an American car, and to my surprise, it has been a very reliable car... very comfortable, and rides nice on the highway.


Best Features

the traction control.... I ski all the time.


Worst Features

I wish the tire size was the same size as some of the better all season aggressive tread tires.. I have to buy special ones to go skiing.
