I've had the car for just over two years with 38k miles on it and I didn't have to take it into the shop until just before it hit 36k for a minor air conditioning issue and a seat squeak. Took it all the way to Georgia...great gas mileage - about 31 per gallon for those trips. Gas mileage in the city is even better after that trip. It's been a great, reliable car and I moved from the Alero - which was a good car to this.
exterior is so much better than the predecessor and I used to have a 95 grand am...and runs so much better too.
suspension...but I know pontiacs suspension is a sportier suspension, but that is the one thing I missed about the Alero...Oldsmobile had better suspension and seating, due to brand styling.
