Summary:

Not bad if you are on a budget when buying a new car

Faults:

Clutch burnt out at 55,000Km; that stinks, and I don't drive like a F1 driver.

Original tires are pretty poor quality Pirelli P6000's, changed at only 50,000Km.

General Comments:

The Chevrolet dealers in Mexico charge twice as much as the other car dealers for making a diagnosis, and you must sign to agree for the work to be done by them, thus you can't go and get a cheaper quote from another independent workshop. If you don't sign and get other quotes and return to the Chevrolet dealer later, the diagnosis is null and void and they charge you again. I'll never buy a Chevrolet car again for the reason stated above.

Changed the tires Pirelli P6000 for a set of Kumho Solus SR21, which are far superior.
