Purchased car from family/original owner at 40k. 6 cycl. 40k replaced alternator, brake pads and adjustment, battery and tires by 30k, by 70k serp belt, headliner-visor worn, a/c - Freon, now at 78k, oil pan gasket leaks, est. -up to $300. Suspension is bad, you feel every minor bump. This is the fifth and last gm for me. Imports are not perfect, but, this is terrible! I might try a Mazda?

I drive 60-120 miles most days, and this car is great. I've had very few problems with the vehicle, and I'd recommend it to anyone.

We bought this car used a year ago with 52k. Since then have put over $4k in maintenance. It's been in the shop 30% of the time since purchase.
