2006 Chevrolet Optra GT 2.0 4 cylinder from North America
Do not buy
For a small, supposedly efficient car, it uses far more gas than advertised. It should get 11 litres/100 km and it uses 14 (in the city) with very little improvement on the highway. It has 4 cylinders and the gas usage is equivalent to an SUV.
Has had 2 recalls already and have had to have the entire steering rack replaced (this was the 2nd repair to the steering)
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Whoa! My Buick uses about 14L/100 under hard acceleration! It uses only about 8.5L/100 on the highway! That's a real gas guzzler right there.

Had the same gas guzzling problem. Got rid of it as GM kept telling me it was the way I drive. I used around 14 litres per 100 km too. Took it for a longer, highway trip and got almost the same mileage. Will never buy another GM product as they were condescending (I am a female) and kept saying it would be better at 5,000 km. When I hit that mark, it became 10,000 km.
