Cheap car, cheap thrills!
Just like some of the others, my window whistles very loudly when I go 100km/h or higher. Had the window seals re-glued for $50 and so far so good.
Has a delayed response when I drop a gear and floor it. The dealership told me I needed to replace the coil pack at a cost of $750. Which was a crock because I found a used one at an auto wrecker for $150 and installed it myself. This still hasn't solved my delay problem, but it did stop my sputtering problem.
I've put 30,000kms on it and have replaced the spark plugs twice. All of the spark plugs were completely toast.
The windshield wiper arms are absolute crap, the minute you start driving the wipers lift away from the windshield. I even put the really expensive wipers with the wind tunnels for added pressure they still don't touch the windshield.
Other than all those problems, it handles incredibly well. So far its been a cheap car to buy and maintain.
Chevrolet did one thing right by putting the 2.4L engine in it.
I have been able to beat quite a few 5.0L Mustangs and Camaros with it. Quite shocking for a guy in a muscular car, when a girl in a Cavalier can kick his butt. Ha. Ha.
This car also does incredible on gas, I can easily get 650km per tank with city driving.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
