A cheap, but powerful and reliable car
The middle compartment's door got loose, but GM repaired it (warranty).
The tires that came with the car are worthless; they make a crazy noise during hot days when I turn (even at a low speed) and they just won't brake when there is rain. During winter, I've had them for a few days while there was snow, and they were terrible.
For the price, it is quite powerful.
The automatic transmission is really good, and smooth.
With winter tires it was a dream to drive in snow, very reliable during winter.
Consumes a lot of gas during winter, but it very good during summer.
Seats could be more comfortable, but it is not an expensive car so...
With GM dealers on most every corner where I live, it was very easy to bargain - got a good deal.
Backseat does not have a lot of room for adult passengers, and it is a bad idea to make a medium trip (30 minutes or more) with 3 adult passengers on the backseat - very uncomfortable for them.
Nice, improved design.
The sedan (4 doors) version is very good for insurance rates, even with a 140 hp engine.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
