GM - An awful manufacturer
The engine got noisy at about 15,000.
The dashboard plastic broke up from the California sun, and the carpeting & upholstery pretty well disintegrated at the same time.
It was fun to drive. The manual transmission (3-speed) was geared rather high so it would cruise well on the highway, and the steering was pretty articulate. Brakes average. It was comfortable.
When the car self-destructed, the local Chevy dealer (now out of business) basically dogged me and stalled till I went away. I was really young & stupid. I get steamed every now and then, and write to General Motors to tell them about my experience, but they never respond.
I sold the car which had quit running after 1 1/2 years for $500, and the kid that bought it never got it running. I have never AND will never buy a GM automobile.
I then bought a 12 year old Toyota Stout pickup that ran for 10 years, and was running when I sold it. Big difference.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
