Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
Pros: Overall quality and Onstar with phone
Cons: No express down on the power windows. Admittedly a minor factor.
Advice: Buy it! You will love it. I'm glad I chose it.I bought it recently and took it on a vacation to Missouri. I find I love it more with every day that passes. I bought it with every possible option including the touring suspension which surely must increase the road noise and ride comfort but both are very acceptable considering the handling and braking. The car goes willingly wherever I point it without complaint. The gas mileage on the trip was 29 MPG plus a fraction overall. The engine turns at only 2100 RPM at 70 MPH which surely must add years to it's life as well as the fuel economy. I had read prior reviews and found one sentence I agree with. The car rolls so easily and engine braking is minimal due to the high gearing in overdrive. It almost got me a ticket in Missouri but I learned then to watch it carefully
