Review

I love my Acheiva.....I was in an
accident in 2000,I was stopped at a
red light and someone hit me from
behind and then I hit the car in front
of me...so the car was like an
accordian..had close to 9,000 damage.
But I got it back good as new.
The only problems since then was the
replacement of the passenger right
side window power moter, alternator,
and battery.


Best Features

I love the sporty look of the car.

Review

This car is pretty fun to drive with
decent fuel economy. The seats aren't
the most comfortable, but they are
quite durable. The interior is roomy
and laid out well. I especially like
the height of the armrest.

A few problems: The drivers' side door
molding is loose and the motor for the
power window has pretty much failed. I
also had to replace the alternator and
the battery. The cassette tape player
died, but the radio still works. Other
than those issues, the car has been
very reliable.


Best Features

Power and fuel economoy of the V-6, spaciousness, reliable transportation, cruise control.


Worst Features

The power windows could be higher quality, the seats a little more comfortable.

Review

I have had my Achieva for over 4 years
now and I have had no major problems.
The only problems I have ever
experienced are usually due to
maintenance. I recently had an
accident with it and had to have the
whole vehicle repainted. I plan to
hang on to this car as long as I can!


Best Features

I love how the driver's seat is like sitting in a cockpit.

Review

This is my first time driving an
American car, and to my surprise, it
has been a very reliable car... very
comfortable, and rides nice on the
highway.


Best Features

the traction control.... I ski all the time.


Worst Features

I wish the tire size was the same size as some of the better all season aggressive tread tires.. I have to buy special ones to go skiing.
