2005 Pontiac Wave from North America
Not a good investment car.
The timing belt broke without ANY NOTIFICATION. This has become a true NIGHTMARE. No one can fix it at a reasonable price. They are asking about $3,500 to put in an older motor.
Interior is quite sturdy.
Front passenger door became loose. Would stay open on its own. The support broke after 5 years of use.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but don't the Pontiac Wave and its twin the Toyota Matrix have a timing chain? You may want to do some research on this, as the chains typically last much longer than the belts, and so maybe it's not the belt or chain that has snapped, and someone is trying to get you to buy an engine when you may not have to.
