Decent car, but typical Chevy unreliability
Tranmission completely came apart at 60,000 miles, no warning whatsoever.
Really liked this car when I bought it - in fact, I had driven a rental car the same as this and liked it so much I went out and bought this car.
Car drove fantastic until one day on a highway trip the "check engine" light comes on and goes off a few minutes later. Manual lists a few things it could be, such as gas cap not on tight, etc. Well, checked those things and everything looked good. Came on and went off again, manual says if it does this to get it checked out whenever convenient for emissions. All of a sudden, a loud noise and high revs from the engine, in a construction zone with no shoulder! Luckily I was able to coast up to the next exit, and coast down the ramp into a gas station.
No transmission at all. The dealer codes say that the check engine light codes were overheating of the transmission - funny how the manual doesn't warn you of that.
After a complete transmission overhaul the tranny was beginning to go out again less than 15k miles later.
Other than that, this was a comfortable car with good gas mileage and decent power, and looked good too.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
