2010 Pontiac G3 Base 1.6L from North America
Killed a Toyota fanboy
In April of 2010, I went to the GM dealer and bought this car for $7800, or on the road for $9000 cdn. After reading the reviews and learning that it is a rebadged Daewoo, I was hesitant, but now I can safely say that this car was one of the best purchases I've made.
I learned to drive standard on this car, and gave the clutch a hard time, but it still shifts great.
The seats are the best I've seen in a car, and they adjust in many more ways than my Toyota ever did.
The car isn't smooth around the edges, and there are a few plastic knobs where the parts came out of the mold, but the interior does not seem cheap.
We filled the car with approx 300lbs of stuff, and took this car on freeways when we moved, and it still had good pickup. If not for the 5 year warranty and the 50% off discount, I probably would not have test driven this car, but I can safely say that I would choose another GM over a Toyota. This is by far the cheapest to run car I've ever used, and I would recommend it to any student. I plan to keep it for a full 10 years. I was a Toyota fan boy, but this car was just well worth it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

The odds of it lasting 10 years are very slim. Those rebadged Daewoos usually fall apart after a few years.

My 2009 is still running great. Seems to last. Changed 1 tie rod, and O2 sensor.
Driver's window has a minor air leak, need to change the rubber, but nothing urgent.
