2005 Pontiac Wave UPLEVEL 1.4 from North America
I hate it cause its always broke and gm won't do anything about it
Changed motor head 2 times.
Very poor gas miledge.
Stinky A/C smell.
Have had links, stabilizer bars, busings changed twice.
Very hard to shift and it's an automatic.
Vehicle revs up really high when driving.
This vehicle is the worst I have ever bought it is always broken.
It used to work really good until they changed the first head.
I get really poor miledge with this vehicle 20 miles/ gallon.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Matrix is built in Canada, this wave is built in Korea by the car company GM bought. Seems Americans can no longer build a good car and the companies have bought other car companies over seas to build their products.
The Wave is the Chevy Aveo built by what was Daewoo.
The Matrix and Pontiac Vibe are totally different cars from the Wave.
The Pontiac Vibe and Toyota Matrix are built by the same workers at the same factory in the USA. The toyota engine is in the Pontiac Vibe, and GM guarantees the engine for 160,000 and toyota only 100,000 (in canada anyway). That's a fact.
