2007 Pontiac Wave SE 1.6L from North America
I would never buy another car from GM!
I have just purchased a Pontiac Wave (4) SE on October 9,2007. I was told that car was a great car, got all the upgrades with the sunroof, spoiler, crome handles etc. I was also told the gas mileage was GREAT on the car. I looked at the specs on the window and it looked like a good deal. However the first tank of gas I got 530/km city driving.. then I was getting 241/km to a tank. I didn't change the fuel at any time. It has gone through 1 oil change. I brought the car in for them to look at, the thermostat was stuck open, well why didn't the check engine light go on? Still got bad mileage same 250/km to the tank full. GM is now looking into the problem asking me to write down and keep receipts of the gas. That's great, but I'm not getting what the specs on the car state. This gas problem seems to be a big issue with the Pontiac Waves!
The car doesn't get to a warm temperature for 20 minutes after driving it.
The seats are some what uncomfortable and stiff.
The gas mileage is terrible!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

My gas mileage is also terrible! I have to fill up approximately 200km... not what I expected.
My car has had several issues... GM has "never seen this before". For example, the passenger airbag light stays ON even with someone in the seat.
Also, there was an issue with the computer that caused my engine to rock, rev the RPMs and shoot the car at crazy speeds. It also died when I was merging onto the highway.
Recently, my horn started going off when the car was locked & not turned on. It had been parked for over 20 minutes. We couldn't get it to stop!
Oh, and the headlight is sporadic. I would almost GIVE the car away.
