Most disappointed in the Tran Sport's extremely short viability. Won't ever buy a GM product again
Stopped running. Would start and run for less than a mile and shut down. Mechanic said problem had to do with EGR valve plus some other lower fluid engine leakage. Said the repair would be more $ than the vehicle was worth.
Was most disappointed.
Also, many body and trim parts broke off easily and prematurely.
For the mileage and the money I paid, I certainly expected to get more than 4000 troublefree miles from the vehicle. Unfortunately, the first problem was expensive enough for me to dump it.
Most disappointed in the Tran Sport's extremely short viability under such mild use. I expected much better performance and reliability. Ironically, at the time of purchase, I so very much wanted to buy an American vehicle after a string of very reliable Japanese cars. (Partly out of patriotism and perhaps the desire to truly believe that US cars are world class.) But, in my personal experience, I've learned that the Japanese cars are the best from a cost-benefit standpoint...
Configuration-wise, very versatile -- removable seats, etc. Pretty comfortable, very roomy and a smooth ride. Whilst it worked appropriately, it was great -- shifted smoothly and powerfully. The exterior looked great, thanks to those composite panels. Drove like a tank. Felt safe with my family inside it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
