The heated seats are a great feature. In the winter it keeps me feeling warm.

It runs great especially in the winter. Has heated seats, good gas mileage. Nice room for kids and storage. Good for traveling. Parts last long barely had to go. In for repairs. The mirrors make it easy to see when backing up. I really love this car it performs great. And is very reliable.

Its a real nice running vehicle.

My vehicle saves on gas when I go out of town. It's a smooth ride. It has a c. Am FM and CD radio. It also has a lot of space and leg room. I have put a little work into it. I have replaces the back struts and springs. Right now the truck need front bushing and middle arm to be replaced.

- Yolanda S

Though I didn't subscribe to OnStar they contact authorities without a hesitation.

Having a problem with the Stabilitrak and door handles breaking.. Also had the locks get stuck. Also needing to replace the oxygen sensor and coil number 2. Having to replace the alternator as well. Other than that just minor maintenance and one recall for drivers door function panel.
