The car doesn't really have much power, especially when you have to punch the gas to move quickly or pass another vehicle.
It is good for highway driving, however the gas mileage is not that good compared to other four cylinder cars.
It has a bad vibration from the plastic panel on the bottom of the front of the car. It is also very loud and annoying to listen to.
I have taken this car into mechanics and they just don't want to work on them, as they have a sealed transmission, and they tell me they are not a good car and to sell it ASAP if I can get rid of it.
It does not run very well in the Alberta winters, as is will stall in the middle of the road, even if I warm it up for half an hour in gear.
Out of nowhere, it is now hesitating quite badly while driving on the highway, or when you take off from a stop light. It's like there is no power and then it starts again. Not safe at all.
The car goes from 2500 RPMS to 5000 on the highway and in town with no power at all. It just revs...???
I thought I had made a great purchase when I bought this car, but I feel I have made a mistake. No one wants to look at it, and there are no books on this car to get information if you want to fix it yourself.
I'm disappointed in this car overall, because after two years of me being the only driver, and haven't traveled other than to work and home really, its performance is extremely poor quality.
If I could get my money back, I would. I am sick to death of people shaking their heads, and they won't even look at the car. I wasted my good hard earned money.
I will never buy a Chevy again, as I feel very ripped off. I work in a very large establishment and have told everyone I know to buy any GM products, especially Optras, Cobalts, etc, not a very well made vehicle at all.
