Only buy it if you like to walk and spend alot $$

Plastic parts. Bad wireing. Windows wont work. Heater core leaks. Radiator fans quit. Radiators are useless . Gurgles and makes alot noises. Wont start whencold. Overheats constantly. Burns oil like crazy. Smell of constant antifreeze is nauseating. Not comfortable at all. Headlights glaze over within week of changing them. Thermostats change more than your socks. Exterior falls apart going down the road. Havent had a year changed breaks twice and ready to do again. AC blend door breaks OFTEN. does not hold the road well at all. Can have a light rain and you might as well be on ice. Bumps feel like boulders. Even trying to jack it up to change tire is a dangerous endeavor. Turn on the defroster? It will growl and grind.. might blow without turning car off and starting again,if your lucky.. Ask chevy about any of it... response is... oh yea thats normal. I dont even think so. It comes down to chevy ripping people off. A junk car for sale. Knowingly poorly made. So, i have no problem telling anybody, This car will leave you beside the road , you will find yourself WALKING very often and you better be prepared to spend a hell of alot more money on repairs than you probably paid totaly for the car .

Very reliable wife's car.

Met all our needs and inexpensive to maintain. Oil, spark plugs, oxygen sensors. Since it is my wife's car I have also done maintenance to suspension, cooling system and brakes on regular basis.

Great MPG , love that its midsized

Easy to drive, not too high, feels more like a car than a truck. Great awd for the snow and bad weather, lots of room in the hatchback.

Run away from this vehicle

This vehicle has been a real problem. Several times over the years I have had to rent a car while this car was being fixed. bearings 7 times.front struts twice,erg valve.transmission lines.complete fuse panel. keys stuck in ignition. front brakes every year. I really got a lemon with this purchase.

Very Roomy

Love the ride on trips. Great acceleration and handling. Incredibly versatile car that has a great towing capacity and with its towing package. Very little maintenance needed. It's sets high enough to see well in traffic. It has lots of room in the front seat, the back seat plus it can hold a lot of cargo. Great in the rain with the AWD. It is very economical.
