Check engine light at 660 KM; wire adjustment.
Nothing else wrong since.
The car handles great, but I don't like the second gear.
Very good car for the price.
I tried almost all manufacturer's cars before purchasing, and GM offered the most for the price. I don't know why this car is so often bashed in car reviews in general. As a Aircraft Technician I like to look how a car has been built, and GM seems to getting better than before.
The worst cars I have tested are KIA Spectra and Toyota Corolla. Even the Hyundai Elantra is better built than a Toyota. I could not afford an extra $90 or $120 per month for a Japanese car without options... it is not worth it.
Hyundai and GM offer a bit more than the others for a right price. Most of Japanese cars in that category except Mazda are underpowered. Mazda are expensive but worth it. If I would have had more money, it would have been my first choice.
A Ford Focus is too expensive also, and Dodge are badly assembled.
The Pontiac G5 or Chevy Cobalt are good choice and the warranty is also good. The dealer is nice too; very good service.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
