2004 Chevrolet Optra 5 dr from North America
Lesson learned. Never buy a first model, first year!
Brakes squealing - system repair in 05.
Cigarette lighter dead in 08 again in 09.
SSPS light on and off for about 2 years now.
Car stays on without any keys in it and dashboard lights all on and alarm goes off in middle of night - had ignition change cause (?) also back window washer changed cause (?) and also drivers door dropped cause (?)
Headlights seam to be misaligned.
Headlamps burn out at least once a year.
Fan motor replaced in 07.
New clock in 07.
Replaced gasket in 07.
Replaced CAM sensor 07.
Emergency brake cable replaced in 06.
Condensation in headlamp almost always.
Not worth the money. By the end of my lease I will have paid a $30,000.00 car worth only $10,000.00. Thanks for the Lemon!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I have had an Optra now for a year. No problems but the recall thing.

Have had the Optra 5 2004 for 1 year, and bought from a dealership... I paid around 8000.00 for it, and in a year have already put over 4000.00 into it, because the dealership (GM) won't fix it... I hate this car.
