2005 Chevrolet Optra from North America
Quality control needs improvement on the assembly line
My engine light came on. I had a code reader done, then the gasket underneath EGR valve was replaced ($8.20), correcting the vacuum leak. The engine light hasn't come on since.
Alarm would go off for no reason. Replaced the sensor under the hood ($5.00).
It has had two recalls that were free to fix.
The mechanics at the dealership where I bought the car are dishonest. I am very lucky my husband can pinpoint the problems with my car and fix them, by reading the complaints of other owners who have the same problems (not so lucky) $$$$$$$.
I wouldn't go back to that dealership, but would buy the car somewhere else. After paying 25,000 for the car, I feel they could be more helpful with solutions. They see all the problems and know the simple fixes.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
