Pros

Surprisingly nice car. Have to admit to not really being a Chevy guy, but the comfort, quiet, and reliability have pleasantly surprised me.

Cons

Not much, only complaint is its a 2005 so no Mp3 or Bluetooth.

Good Vehicle, Particularly For Company Use. I Will Certainly Purchase Another — Purchased this vehicle as a company vehicle, it has proven to be great on the highway,amazingly good in slippery conditions and really good fuel economy. The V6 has really good pickup with great midrange torque for passing. After 100,000 miles the seats are holding up nicely and all the electronics wok well, very comfortable for long trips. Two thumbs up!

Pros

A very reliable chevrolet with good gas mileage and easy handling.  No high maintenance cost here.  

Cons

Though it is not a very fast car, it does the job in getting through traffice, and is much more stable in traffic than a pt cruiser or similar vehicle, so if you are looking for a BMW engine then this is not for you.

It Was Always A Reliable Car For Me As An Owner! — This is a very spacious car that is great for families or anyone who needs extra space. Has excellent stereo sound and quality speakers. It is easy to maintain so I have had no complaints on this one at all.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Great Car, Great Price, Great Overall Value! — I can't complain. I haven't found anything I don't actually like about this car. It is reliable and very fuel efficient. It's roomy enough for the whole family and doesn't cost me a fortune in repairs! Smooth ride and great handle. The 3.4 liter v6 is surprisingly strong! Would recommend this car to anyone and would buy another one myself!

Great Car, Only Minor Physical Imperfections And Needs To New Break Pads. — This car is fun to drive. Has a lot of power because of the police interceptor so it does make it faster. The driver side fender and headlight needs fixed because of an accident which did not cause any mechanical damage to the car. I do plan on getting those fixed as soon as possible because I can get it done for cheap. It is around 17mpg. It drives smoothly and doesnt shake on the highway.

Pros

Nothing but average, too big for me now that I am not on the freeway as much as I used to be.

Cons

Boring.

35

Ok. — I bought it because I was driving around 50,000 miles per year and needed something that was physically comfortable and got decent gas mileage on the freeway (30mpg). So far I had to put in a new time flux capacitor and some work on the transmission. I put in a new K&N air filter, TOTALLY worth the 42$, this truly helped get rid of some of the sluggishness.

It Is An Amazing Car! It Also Has A Beautiful Color! — I love this car! Its is soo fast and it rides like a dream! it doesnt have a body kit and it has a 6 cylinder engine. It has new tires and it doesnt use up rubber as quickly as others. It has nice rims and it has a very stong exterior. So if you get in a car accident you wont get hurt.

Cons

Average looks and power

Great Family Car — Great family car - seats 6, with 3 seats of car seat hooks, lots of trunk space. Solid car body allows for smooth turns and quality snow handling - no issues with snow drigts here in Washington State. I have enjoyed this car.

Reasonably quite, capable and comfortable.

Very Satisfied — Love the AC, cruise control, heated leather seats, overall power and performance. Very comfortable and love the sunroof. Still looks great after almost 10 years (and I bought this when it was 4 years old). Have 143k on it too! Planning on replacing only because my youngest needs a car.
