"I bought this car in March 2012 and it is now Dec 2014. I drive this car very nicely and mostly on the freeway to and from work. I am sitting here with 3 recall notices in my lap. THREE recall notices in 2 years! - for the floor pedal, the engine leaking coolant and causing problems, and now the steering wheel. PLUS my car had to get the Turbo replaced at 25,000 miles! It was covered under warranty but it was a huge inconvenience. I do not feel like I have a reliable vehicle. I feel like I have a vehicle that before it hits 100,000 miles is going to need a lot of work. Comfort: The cloth seats in the car are SUPER hard if you have to sit on them very long. It's fine to sit on for 30 mins or so but this is NOT a road trip car. I guess if I got the leather seats it would be softer, but I don't like sticking to my seats in summer when I wear shorts or skirts. Also the material on the seats holds crumbs on them because it is cupped shaped fabric. Design: The interior has a very nice design. I love the blue gauges and the chrome around the edges. I do think the vents could be positioned a little differently so the drivers side vent can blow at you and not just on your hands."

Pros: "comfortable, space, drives well, avg 30 mpg."

Cons: "sketchy reliability (transmission,water pump)"

"I'm mostly pleased but the quality of the vehicle leaves me underwhelmed. Comfort, driving dynamics and mileage are strong suits for this Chevy. Transmission, water pumps and steering issues in less that 40K miles.....well left me with bad feeling about this car. 1LT trim with cruise, Bluetooth and an Ipod connector are nice touches. Leather wrapped steering wheel and a big trunk are nice too. At $20K, great package, but not reliable like the Chevys of days gone bye."

Pros: "Nice to drive and quiet."

Cons: "Way too many problems to recommend this car."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 3

"Within 15000 miles I have had a transmission leak,heater core leaking,water pump replaced due to leak,30 days at dealership waiting on parts for an axle shaft recall and several minor issues. Car is nice to drive and relatively quiet but the problems I have had negate any plusses to owing this car."

Pros: "great price, plenty of trunk space & fun to drive"

Cons: "can't keep up with my Vette!"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"Fun to drive, outstanding fuel economy (35.8 mpg avg over 70k miles) and all the creature comforts needed for work commute or long trips. The price was right and was a no brainer based on 20k miles per year driving. No problems and still running strong!"
