Summary:

Fine by me and looks very much the part.

Faults:

Nothing.

General Comments:

The car gets some admiring glances as it is not available from a dealer here in England.

There are other two and a half liter cars that could eat it on speed, but overall I am pleased with its handling, looks and economy.

GM have sold a lot worse over here within this budget of car and should sell more USA made cars from dealers here in the U.K.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
