ReviewWriting in after being outraged at a $3000 timing chain replacement, most of it 17 hours of mechanic's labor.
Come on GM, timing belts and chain replacement are as given on a car as is the tires.
Why would you approve a design that requires dropping the engine to replace them! On a Honda or other Japanese car, it's $400-500 event.
Not so for GM.
I bought the 07 new.
I haven't had a great deal of trouble, like some here who have all kinds of failures.
But there were some: the lift gate which has a complicated motorized latch, failed so that it remained unlatched while driving.
There was simply no way to hold it shut. Dangerous! Then it was $400 to have that fixed.
Best FeaturesAmple seating. Feels solid, even after 7 years ownership.
Worst FeaturesEngineer the products with owners in mind. Pay attention to cost of ownership when the car is no longer brand new.
