It is not a sports car, but I am very happy


The passenger window comes up when the roof is done closing, but then backs part way down again. (the others remain up)

There is minor water leakage in a heavy rain or car wash.

General Comments:

This car feels much larger and solid and heavier than our previous Sunfire.

It is not quick, but is quite a fast cruiser. Easily and calmly in the 160-200 kph range.

The seats are very comfortable, but the armrest on the door leaves something to be desired. The armrest is too low and the window sill is too high to rest your arm. And my wife's arm tends to rest on the express down button for all four windows.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
