    Good To Use In Metros — I really liked the seating comfort. The best part is the pick up of the turbojet engine. I just went on a test drive so could not make out the the millage figure, but then I hope this would give a economic millage on city streets... Had a really great experience of driving this..

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Heavy Appearence

    Cons: Difficult to park

    Great Car For The Money. — It is by far the best entry level car on the market today. its got a 4 cylinder engine with a 6 speed sequential gearbox. it is such a fun car to drive. the front wheel drive really makes it handle that much better. I got it only a week ago and have put on 150 miles because it is simply amazing to drive. \

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: interior, performance, its fun.

    Cons: dont avoid it.

    Chevrolet's Debut Into The Midsize Sedan Rocks — This car is awesome, it handles like it's on rails, build quality is awesome for its price range, it's not leather on wood, but the design makes up for the material. Absolutely a head-turner, running cost is average. absolutely fun to drive with a 6 speed auto and steptronic gearbox, throttle needs to be a little more responsive but it's awesome to drive

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: The looks and performace

    Cons: Throttle response

    Build Quality Is Not Bad, But A Lot Of Room For Improvement — Only had the car for less than 500 miles, so far there were no quality issues. About 60 % Highway driving or average speed 42.2 MPH stated by trip computer: average fuel economy hand calculated was 26.5 MPG, trip computer shows 28.2 MPG. Fuel used according to gas pump is 11.325 gallon, trip computer 10.7 gallon. The car accelerates reasonable for a small turbo engine, though the turbo system is sensitivity, which is noticeable say when you go from highway driving to parking lot driving. For this turbo, premium fuel is not required. The car has available manual mode for transmission selection option, never used. Though given the brake / accelerator pedal setup, it is easy to do a hee toe downshift with a manual transmission, but easy to accidentally hit the accelerator when not desired. The car does however have a left foot rest. It handles reasonable though I have not push the car in corners. Electric power steering seems pretty good, and means more room underhood, no fluids to check or leaks to worry about. The disc / drum setup appears to require one the brake sooner. Fortuantely I did not need to activate ABS, Traction or Stabilitrak. There is a manual adjustment for height, tilt seat bottom, forward/back and reclining. Though I think the reclining adjustment knob is difficult to reach. Surprising I can put the seat lower than I thought. The trunk is large for its class and the pass through opening is also large. The glove box is reasonable sized. There is a center instrument panel storage and a front passenger side compartment to store items like maps. Door switches, steering wheel controls and headlamp switch are backlight for easy finding at night. Though I was not used to finding the power door switch on the center dash. I wished the car had an internal trunk release switch or lever. Cruise Control on/off switch on the steering wheel could have been designed to easily figure out how to turn on. Though on the dash, once it is on, a speedometer with arrow symbol lights up gray and when speed is set, the color turns green. There is a mute button for audio controls in addition to personal call you can make by hitting a phone button. The rotating adjustment switches on the steering wheel, while not impossible is difficult to use with gloves on. To adjust interior light dimming, you have to hold down as oppose to sliding them. Inside the rear of the console, you can connect for USB or regular audio jack to play music through other auxiliary sources. There is 12V power accessories outlet on the rear of the center console. It has a good Driver Information Center, shows two trip odometers, fuel range, average speed, fuel used, US/metric selection, car diagram of tire pressures (excluding spare), oil life remaining, battery voltage, digital speedometer, navigation direction by using Onstar, Compass, diagram showing any side doors open. When setting a speed with a cruise control it tells you exactly what speed you set it to and even when you increase or decrease the original set speed. 36 presets for any AM/FM/XM stations, Radio Data System, depending on radio station participation displays artist/song name currently played on the radio. Knock on wood, I never had to read any emergency information. With the optional steering audio controls, I can go through favorite station settings without taking my hands off the steering wheel. Center radio display shows time, outside temperature display and HVAC status There are things I like least about the car. I would hit my knee against the steering column that I had adjusted as high as possible. Depending on the size of driver/people, I do not recommend having more than two adults, including driver in the car, especially long trips. I was fortunate enough that when I was stopping for a few minutes that I had set the parking brake and took the car out of forward or reverse gears, since there were many times that I hit the accelerator by accident.

    Pros: quality build is good, worth taking a look and many features/ideas were thoughly considered

    Cons: do not reccomend any more than two adults and could press the accelerator accidently
