Pleasantly Surprised
By David on


2005 Chevrolet Classic Fleet 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 4A)


2/08 w/46500 mi I paid around $8500. The int was in VG cond and the ext was near perfect. The only problems I've had was a squeak at the sway bar bushings (I fixed with dry graphite lube) and right now the Ck Eng light has come on two days ago. I will be getting that checked next week. I've had no other problems (hence "Pleasantly Surprised). At 51k mi I had the trans flushed and at 53K I switched to synthetic oil. I chg oil at 5k (w/filter chg at 3k). The oil filter sits near the right top of the block and no oil is lost when changing the filter element. I average 25mpg (city/hwy) overall. Highway driving at 65-70mph gets me 30mpg. IMHO the ecotec is the best 4 cyl GM has ever made.

Best Features

Power driver's seat and key fob lock/unlock doors and power trunk open.

Worst Features

El cheapo audio system. I replaced with a Pioneer deck, Infinity(front) and Pioneer(rear) speakers. An interface module is an absolute must to retain the factory warning/chime system. The sound improvement is HUGE.
