The best of GM = Not saying much
Leaky head gasket, can smell antifreeze constantly.
Power steering leaks, last owner ran dry, constant steering pump noise.
Replaced bad dealer installed CV Axle.
Bought it with Fuel Gauge faulty, useless.
Replaced warped front break rotors.
Center console lid hinge broken.
Transmission SLAMS into reverse when cold.
The spider gears in the transfer are about to go, very loose.
Steering knuckle clunk every time I turn.
Using cigarette lighter for my cell kills my radio reception for my favorite station over time.
This car loves to accelerate coming out of 35-45 mph, it's great for passing. Corners well. Good looks. Very comfortable.
Nice all around car to have if things worked.
I love GM and have owned several and have been burned by most for the short periods I have owned them. I know what I get with GM. So GM rides with my own tools and shop manuals, but this car is very hard to work on, I don't bother bringing my tools with this car. This is by far the best driving GM I have ever been in though, but little to anybody's surprize this near-luxury, big-ticket car just falls apart. Luckily I got this car with 99k only 3-4 years old for $3600, good depreciation there. Try buying HALF a wrecked, burned, flooded 2002 accord V6 for that much despite it selling for less when new.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
