Purchased As New
Performance wise, this car is a great commuter, a rather comfortable ride and the interior feels spacious. It handles very well compared to the other commuter type cars in the Chevy family. It accelerates well in traffic, but the engine doesn't quite have the power of the Impala. Gas mileage is good to excellent. The stereo system is very nice and has connections for an ipod. The amount of trunk space is excellent, and the back seats flip forward for any needed extra storage. The stretchy upholstery fabric repels fluids well and the carpet is easy to vacuum. This car is a great value and has a commanding appearance. Overall, I am happy with this choice.
My only two complaints are that the only choice I had for the interior was black, which makes it very hot in the summer, and the reflections that are created by some of the interior chrome trim can be distracting. My solution is light colored seat covers and floor mats, and really dark sun glasses. The metallic ice exterior is a bit of a chore to keep looking clean, since water drops and dirt show up very distinctly on it compared to most solid colors. Weekly I use a good quality wash and wax combo to save a step because it has to be towel-dried to look presentable.
