The brakes have squealed intermittently, and the dealership couldn't fix it, because naturally it wouldn't do it for them. But the problem seems to have resolved itself.
The brakes went in a short time, and had to be replaced, at about 45000km. Maybe that's why I haven't heard them squeal lately.
Not terribly good in snow. When I had the winter tires put on during a snowstorm, it seemed to have much less traction going away than when I went in with the summer tires.
The speakers often sound distorted, and can't seem to handle the ample bass from the radio.
The first time I got into the van, I quickly learned I have to bend my head down quite a bit to avoid getting banged on the doorframe and seeing stars, unlike the Pontiac.
It is less comfortable and has far fewer options than the luxurious Pontiac Montana it replaced - my daughter calls this one a welfare van.
Some more bells and whistles would be nice, but of course it is those things that broke down on the Pontiac.
We like the van, it is reliable, and just roomy enough to be comfortable. Good family van for those without a lot of money.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
