2004 Chevrolet Optra 2.0 from North America
The vehicle has been good up until now. Was owned by a "senior" couple who took it to the dealer for all required (money making) services and check ups. The vehicle came with all receipts for all work done. Head gasket and related items were replaced at 74000 (by a GM dealer) and now at 147000 the head gasket has failed again. It was a problem at #4 cylinder and guess what, it's now cylinder 4 again - wow, imagine that LOL. The block is pitted at the coolant passage at cylinder 4 and this failure will surely happen again. Searching the WWW I read numerous instances of the same concern as mine. Way to go GM. Disappointing again. Last GM vehicle I will buy, and I was never really a fan any way. With luck they will file chapter 11.
Otherwise, a decent vehicle.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
