Power steering pump was beginning to fail at 180,000. Removed and replaced on my driveway for $200.00 total.
This took two hours, but needed the dealer to remove a pulley from the old pump and install on the new one. Dealer did not charge anything.
Water leaks onto floor due to A/C drain clogging at 160,000. Cleared drain plug with a coat hanger at no cost and works fine ever since. Took 10 minutes.
Power window switch getting sticky (express down works) at 150,000. No remedy other than a new switch.
Windshield washer pump failure at 135,000. Installed a new pump on my driveway for $20.00. Took me 10 minutes.
Key gets stuck in ignition at 119,000. There is a recess hole on bottom of the steering column stick a pen in and manually release the "pawl" that "holds" the key, or better still remove the steering column cover and pop out the "pawl" from top near rear in white plastic piece.
Outstanding performance for a family car. GM 3.8 litre engines are bullet proof, as are 4T60E auto transmissions, which are used by both BMW and Rolls Royce.
Brakes are very good, but require frequent pad replacement.
Steering pump is a crappy design, and will fail period.
Washer fluid pump fails due to ground issues, because of its physical location near the bottom of a wheel well.
GM design is brilliant in that almost all repairs can be done easily and without a hoist, provided you have the proper tools and knowledge.
Interior, like all domestics, falls well short of German or Japanese makes.
Best of all, it's made in North America by North Americans, for North Americans, keeping profits in the North American economy.
