Pros

So much space! Very strong, durable car. Reliable. I've lived in this thing pretty much since I bought in 2007 with 60K miles.

Cons

This car is ugly and I was always embarrassed to drive it. The intake manifold gasket had to be replaced at about 140,000 miles. Rack and pinion SNAPPED at about 123,000 and is about to do so again at 162,000.

This car has a wide turn radius.

Strong — Other than the two MAJOR repairs I had to do on this car it has been pretty reliable and very strong. I feel like it doesn't have very much -get-up-and-go to it, however, because of the weight. As ugly as it is, I LOVED the space. I travel a lot for work and because I just love to drive. I have slept in this car on numerous occasions during long road trips, and the back seat is like sleeping on a couch. The trunk is spacious, the front seat is spacious. I pretty much live in here. I've said I wouldn't get a new car until I drove this thing into the ground and at 162K it looks like the time is almost here.

Great Value — Love the power and performance...drives and handles great, lots of room, like the leather, sunroof, the car is fun to drive and looks great too The down side is the repair bills...power window switch, dual exhaust, front and rear brakes, gas tank..but that goes for any car

Pros

Great gas mileage, fun to drive, gets many complimants.

Cons

Some 3.1L motors develope ticks that can lead to motor failure.

55

I Love This Car, The Only Problem I Have With It Is The Motor Has A Piston Clap. — Great excelleration,, sporty handling, and authentic NASCAR look. (Look at my pics to see) The only this I dont care for is the piston clap in the motor, so you have to let it run before driving. Many complimants recieved.

Pros

Big v6 power

Cons

expensive suspension if it breaks

25

Great Car — The 3.8 ltr v8 puts out great torque for take off even though the top end isnt that great. The handeling of the car is awsome for a big car. The suspension under mine is a 2000 dollar option though.

Pros

Nice sound

Cons

pain to change/charge battery, low MPG

25

Fun — Great car, love everything about it. Just the only thing is the location of the battery, which is located under the windshield washer fluid and fuse box. And it gets 18 MPG. Which is very low for a car... Thats it

I Like It Alot. Very Sporty And Practical. — Not bad for a first car. Beefy 3800 Series II motor. Good acceleration, not badly made, has had a few things gone wrong, didn't buy it in top shape. A blast to drive! Very comfortable as well. Great Job Chevrolet!

A Solid, Reliable Car. — It is a nice car to get you from A to B. Won't turn any heads by its performance. It has good handling. Has decent acceleration, a nice look, and a nice interior build. Also does alright as far as mpg...so all in all it's a pretty durable car.

Nice To Drive And It Turns Heads But Won't Pass A Gas Pump W/o Stopping. By blabonte
