Only Good for 5 Years

ReviewI loved this car when I bought it in 2004. It handled well in the snow. It was more like a truck, but it did the job. Unfortunately at about 65,000 miles, major things started to go wrong. The sway bar links,(which had to be replaced when I bought the car), had to be replaced- close to $900. Then, two head gaskets had to be replaced at about 69,000 miles- $850. Finally, the car began dying sporadically without explanation. There was an electrical problem, but Chevy would not acknowledge it. They began replacing things at random, only to have the car die again. Loved it at first, but traded it for a Subaru. Chevy claimed 70,000 miles was high mileage. I can't afford to own that type of car.
Best FeaturesOutside appearance held up well, AWD, privacy glass, roomy enough, height of driver's seat, trunk with cover to hide items, V6 engine.
Worst FeaturesStrange cup holder placement, radio controls wore down quickly, reliability after 60,000 miles, customer service needs major improvements.
