"Pluses: Best looking version of this GM platform, good acceleration, comfortable ride, leather interior has held up well, decent handling under normal driving
Minuses: Gas mileage is not great- 18mpg average, 3 of 4 power window regulators have went out, excessive wind noise in the cabin at 70mph and higher, engine could use a little more low end torque"
"I have 137,000 miles on this car and this has been the best car that i have ever owned. runs great, the only tune up i have done so far was at 100,000 miles. done rack and pinion, rear shocks and brakes. those have been the only repairs that i have needed to do and it still runs like new. i have owned this car now for over 6 years and may own it for another 6. too bad they don't make them anymore."
"I bought a gls off of some guy with about 85k miles. It was neglected badly, which show the engine quality because it runs great. IT DOESN'T SMOKE BUT IT BURNS ABOUT .5 QUARTS PER 1k MILES. The features are great, engine has great power and fuel economy, but the trans is a 3 speed with overdrive so acceleraton can be slow at certain speeds ex: floor it at 40 miles per hour and it blasts up to the redline and you are up to way to fast in no time, but floor it at 50 and it stays at about 2,000 rpm and gets going slowly. Handling is typical front wheel drive, it understeers when you are turning at high speeds (then again mine has almost 90k on it) Governed at 110 after 100 the car feels like it is hovering VERY BAD!!!! be careful!!! The traction control is a real pain if you ever have to drive on gravel or pavement with a little dust/grit on it because it always engages.
All in all its a good car, not bad power, bad handling, grown up looks. P.S. My grandma likes my car more than I do."
