Great car if you're not 6 foot 3


Returned to the dealer with 900 miles for brakes making a scrubbing noise.

General Comments:

The car, with the Firestone tires it comes with, handles sloppy, but can be fixed with a higher quality tire; get a H or V speed rated tire, and your handling better than you would expect from a vehicle like this. I live in the mountains, so I test this daily.

The only complaint is the low roof line will cause me to have to bend down and look at traffic lights if I am the first one at the light.

At first the MPG is not so good; now it is getting better.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I am the original poster. The brake issues above continued and got a lot worse. I also started getting several no starts. This vehicle is now bought back by GM under the lemon law.
