Best buy for the money
There is a problem with the throttle position sensor; you have to replace the whole throttle body sensor, for like 150.00 bucks. Talked to my mechanic and he said that's BS, just pull off the throttle body and clean good inside and out with carburetor cleaner.. He was right.. every time I get that code, I just pull it off, clean it and have no more problems.
This car has been GREAT, only problem is the TPS (throttle position sensor).
Other than that minor inconvenience, I have had no problems with this car.
I just changed the ceramic pads, mileage is 154000.00. Yes, still original pads, granted I am in sales, and there are a lot of highway miles, but still I am impressed.
I average around 36 MPG.
The car is a sled. It takes forever to get to 80, but hey, for 10900 bucks, what do you want, and three plus years of ZERO maintenance, other than oil changes and timing belts.
The throttle position sensor can be cleaned, and does not have to be replaced, so save 150.00 + labor; it's like 5 bolts holding it on.
Too bad GM couldn't build this car; they name plate it from Daewoo. The Koreans can build decent cars.. I would totally recommend this car as decent ride. A+ on repairs and general maintenance.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
