An average buy
Driver side locks don't work in cold weather.
Countless recalls, including airbag clamps.
Injectors went @ 100K, the dealer was kind enough to back date my warranty.
For the price I paid for the car new, I can't complain. The only problem is the high cost of repair.
Front brakes (pads, rotors) were $400 Cdn. installed.
Timing belts were $400 Cdn.
The car is does perform well, except if you have a heavy load.
In conclusion the car was done well, I took a chance when I bought and so far it really hasn't been that bad. I have put over and 100,000km on my Lanos and it's still running good.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
