Not at all a reliable car when you come down to it. I have just been lucky nothing major has caused a break down yet. Vehicle includes a tow package.
Bought this as a certified used car from Chevy dealer. Had to send them nasty notes to get them to replace all fluids at 32000 miles because it was obvious the vehicle was used to tow with. Tow ball was on back bumper so only was a class 2.
Thank God I bought an extended warranty for 3 years and 30000 miles (GM Major Guard $0 deductible) for $1200 when I bought car.
Warranty is up in July and this vehicle needs fluid transplants, plus shocks, plus brakes have felt wrong since new. Not a pulse from rotors, but I think a contaminated pad or rotor. Every time I bring it in they tell me it is fine. It has been in 3-4 times for this problem and not a darn thing has been done yet. Driver door spring creaks like crazy (Yes spring). Ice builds up in front door latch areas and door freezes shut all the time in winter.
I get exactly 10mpg in winter and 11 in summer in city, but 20-21.5mpg on highway (Maybe that will change with new intake manifold on there).
I also think the rear leaf springs are shot, but will know more after the shock change. Car wallows excessively all the time, but seems like it doesn't tip as easy. Also it wanders a lot on the highway from wind and is excessively noisy at highway speeds in cabin. Almost too difficult to hear someone on speaker phone or hands free.
May trade in before warranty runs out just don't trust it enough not to have more major problems. Plus all the fixes and fluid changes coming up will cost between $500-$800.
I have been on web sites where people crashed at 40 mph and air bags don't deploy and car is totaled. This concerns me greatly.
