    Expensive For What Is Delivered, Fast Depreciation. — Very similar to other GM products, especially Malibu and Impala. Most distinctive feature is front led running lights. Handling a bit numb, but secure, even with magnetic ride control .Braking with Brembo fronts is excellent, acceleration not so much, but this is not a V-8, and louder than expected under full bore. Transmission shifts are silky smooth. Festooned with electronic wizardry, some are gimmicky like the electric glove box release, which has been replaced already. The poorly laid out dash display received reprogramming last service, now displays proper round guages including speedo, tach, temp and fuel, without the flowing, sparkles at startup. Vastly improved. All wheel drive inspires driver confidence, great traction in all weather. Value has dropped in half in 2 years, that's almost $30K!

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Looks, quiet, convenience, park assist, cross traffic alerts.

    Cons: Tall door sills, controls not intuitive, radio complexity, fuel economy worse than old DTS with V8, doors ding easily, no rub strips.

    Big, Bold And Hard To Handle. — I do in fact like most properties offered by this vehicle, the one problem I find is that with the car having front wheel drive the handling in not precise and in fact is sluggish and not quick to respond.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Looks, style, gadgets, trunk capacity and excellent fuel economy.

    Cons: Sluggish handling (front wheel drive)
