Faults:

When I first picked it up on my way home the engine started clunking and stuttering, so id rove it back to the dealer and it took two days for them to do anything with it, Once they worked on it it was better, the next day on my drive to work it stalled out 3 times at lights and so forth other problems! then I found out I had just bought a piece of "GM Quality" JUNK.

General Comments:

The leather seats are acceptable, but the dashboard stinks I feels like you driving in a wooden box.

Summary:

Extremely unreliable, pass on this one

Faults:

Rear brake rotors and calipers had to be replaced before 2000 miles.

During first 90 days, problems with intermittent airbag light.

Intermittent airbag light problem is still going on. First it was a dirty connector which was cleaned. Then the passenger airbag was replaced. Now they are replacing the driver airbag.

Problem with the four wheel drive selector. Light on dash switches between four wheel drive and two wheel drive. Dealer replaced module.

Four wheel indicator problem continues, and a different module was replaced. Service four wheel drive light has appeared numerous times. Dealer indicates the problem may now be a switch since they have replaced the four wheel drive module.

Upon starting the car, the engine runs, but no dash lights or gauges. Dealer replaced computer module, problem has not occurred since.

General Comments:

The dealer service department is professional and courteous to work with. I have no complaints with the efforts of the dealership or the service staff.

The car simply has too many electrical problems that do not appear to be easily identified or resolved.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

You apparently have a damaged wiring harness. This usually happens where it goes through the fire wall. The dealer can change all the parts he want, it will not fix the problem. You will have all kinds of phantom problems until the wiring harness is fixed. To prove this you take a high potential meter and connect the ground to the chassis. Everything on the harness must be unplugged. The high potential meter can damage electronic devices. After this check each wire that is not ground potential. The meter tells you if the insulation is good on the wire.
