    Decent For American Made — I love the gas mileage this car gets and I think it's a good looking car. However, when I'm driving on the freeway it seems touchy. As if the smallest rock will throw it in the wrong direction. Also, you can't have the back windows open unless the front ones are at least cracked. Otherwise it makes a LOT of noise. Another thing I've noticed is that this car doesn't stand up to wind. A little breeze will push it all over! I'd also have to say that the cup holders do interfere with the a/c controls.

    Pros: Frontal crash-test ratings  
    + Little road noise  
    + Comfortable ride  
    + Attractive, if basic, interior  
    + Responsive automatic  

    Cons: Backseat space and entry/exit
    - Seat comfort  
    - Noisy engine exhaust  
    - Some cheap-looking controls

    It's A Chevy, Ups And Downs The Whole Way Around. — It has decent power for the size engine, and for the platform and class it is.

    Pros: Sporty, affordable, economical.

    Cons: I'm not really displeased.

    Good Car For A First Time Buyer/ Driver — I have always felt safe in this car and 9/10 have been completely confident in its reliability. However if there is a problem with the car, it is pretty straight forward to figure out what the problem is by the warning lights that flash. So even if you don't know the first thing about cars, you will still beable to fix the problem... one word of advise when the lights do come on, don't ignore them take the car to the nearest garage...

    Pros: Pick-up and stearing ease.

    Cons: no back windshield wipers, can be a problem

    This Is A Good Car For What Its Worth. — this is actually a RS model which they only made 1500 of. what it basically is, is a LS model with the 2.2 but has had a weight reduction inside and out. it as well has the SS/SC gearbox too which has more crisper and short-throw shifting. i have added to it a: corsa race exhaust (not street legal), gm performance cams (intake and exhaust), gm performance ecu- reflashed, gm performance underdrive pulley, k&n drop filter, razo shift knob, dc sports tower strut bar, eibach sportline springs, eibach anti-roll over kit and bushings and fluidine radiator. its been a fun car and love to drive it. i did do twice, a SCCA run with the central kentucky division in lexington and it didn't do that bad. needed proper tires though because i was sliding all over the place. so i do recomend this car, even if its straight from the factory model.

    Pros: 2.2 has great acceleration and can handle a lot of horsepower with stock internals. gearbox is crisp, somewhat comfortable inside and a joy to drive.

    Cons: gears are to long because its an american car, cloth material on doors suck, poor blind spot visibility.

    Great All Around Car For Commuting And For Pleasure — I've had this car for over a year now, and i love it. It is a great solid car. My wife and I both enjoy this car and take it on many road trips around Washington. I've added a intake and we still get around 33.4 mpg which isn't bad...

    Pros: Great solid car very reliable.  Comes with 148hp but I've up graded it
    with a intake and you can tell the difference.   With a little more work  
    will be impressive...

    Cons: Little weak in the power range.

    Mines Not Stock, But I Love It..and I'd Recommend To Anyone Who Wants A Quick Stock Car.... — awesome gas mileage....I run Supreme now (93 pump gas) but the car comes to run regular at the pump....I see over 30 mpg on the highway......Mines very quick..I used to think it was when I was stock but after a bunch of mods (S/C rebuild, smaller 18psi pulley, 425cc injectors, NGK 1 step cooler plugs, Injen intake, Megan exhaust, GM Stage 2 tune, Hurst shifter, Clutchmasters Stage 4 clutch, Fidanza flywheel, Cobalt-Addiction Front Mount heat exchanger, Tenzo Springs, and weight reduction) it runs 13.3 @ 105 mph which isn't super fast but will eat most stock cars in the 1/4 mile easy....And my car is only getting quicker with every mod, lol........

    Pros: gas mileage

    Cons: huge wing on the SS/SC's...I removed mine bc you can't see out the rear window if the wing is there.....

    Pros: gas mileage, head turner, stock interior......

    Cons: Huge wing on SS/SC that blocks any view out of the rear window (I'm now wingless which solved that)

    Ss Supercharged — It's a good car for what it is but I'm more of an SUV/Truck person so it's hard for me to really appreciate it for what it is.

    Pros: Fast... does what you want no matter what.

    Cons: It's a car... haha

    This Car Was Not Made For My Build. — I loved the red; however, the stories are true. I got stopped by the police more and had several small accidents with this car! It had heated leather seats and satellite radio.

    Pros: Guys seemed to like the car.

    Cons: No tilt wheel to speak of.  I had to manually move the seat back and forth every time I got in or out!
