The 2.2L 4cyl engine is awfully underpowered. When there is a hill on the highway, I have to floor it so I can keep the speed constant. I would always have to move over because the truck is just too weak, especially with the AC on. I had to turn it off to gain some power.
Heater core was hard to replace, there were so many hidden screws.
I don't like how the headlights turn on automatically. There should have been an option to turn it off.
Window cranks are lame.
This 2wd truck does not perform well in the snow.
Fair gas mileage, I get about 17 city and 20 highway.
Truck looks good, but with all these issues, I hate looking at it now.
The cheap material used in this truck is overwhelming. The dashboard is falling apart, and I don't even drive off-road. It is losing its color, was dark blue, but now it's this grayish/indigo color. The interior rattles all the time, which can get annoying on long drives.
I use this truck lightly and take care of it as much as possible, but problems keep coming. The service engine light is always on and I don't want to fix it anymore. I am planning to sell it as soon as I graduate from college.
What I thought was a good truck turned out to be a poorly designed piece of crap. The slow underpowered engine coupled with fair gas mileage and several design flaws, make this truck utterly pathetic. Don't get me wrong, this truck sucks. I know some people love these things, but I absolutely hate it and regret buying it. This truck will be my first and last GM vehicle I will ever own. I will never make this mistake again.
