ReviewWay too many reliability problems, for
a car with under 8k miles the following
went wrong: Limit switch on brake that
allows the AT transmission selector
into gear fails easily! Car was towed
for warranty service to dealer. Then
they lost the car at the dealership.
They found it after a heart to heart
talk w/ the GM. ABS valve recall.
Electric windows had a mind of their
own. Rear hatch must be slammed shut
before electric closure mechanism
will "catch". Which of course broke
from the slamming. Other than that, it
really was a good commuter car. I
cannot recommend this car to anyone who
lives more than 15miles from a
Best FeaturesDiesel engine was superb. Super fuel economy even with the AT trans. Selling the car!
Worst FeaturesReliability was reminiscent of the original bug.
