This car has a supberb powertrain and
good looks, but the cheap interior
limits my overall satisfaction.
After 3 years I'm still very pleased
with the power and handling. This car
handles like a small car with all the
comforts of a big car. Overall
reliability has been solid - no
mechanical problems yet.
The interior feels cheap - even
compared to my Sable (which is hardly
top of the line). The windows aren't
tinted enough. I often get
uncomfortably hot sun on the back of my
neck. The sun visor isn't long enough
to completely block the sun (I noticed
GM has now fixed this problem.) Typical
of every American car I've owned, this
one became very noisy (wind noise)
after 6 months.
Engine, transmission, road handling.
Lose all those chintzy plastic interior
parts. Add a visor extender and tint
the windows more. Improve the seals to
stop wind noise.
