"Have you ever known an absolutely beautiful single girl but then after you get to know her...it all makes sense why shes single LOL! Look, this car is that model, beautiful stunning looking car...drop dead gorgeous. The most beautiful car Ive ever owned inside and out. Thats what sucks you in, the beauty. Then you get married, Be prepared because its gonna cost you a fortune. You will look and feel like a million dollars but the repairs and the money it cost to repair will leave you afraid to take it out of the garage. The sensors in this car are supposed to tell you whats wrong with whatever its sensing. Well guess what the sensors all go bad...and they are expensive. Everything will break in this car. It leaks like a faucet every liquid it has in it. Brakes will pulsate no matter what you do..no matter how many times you have them redone...everything will leak in this car. Did I mention that? You will drive this car praying to GOD nothing breaks on your drive to the local store. Oh, and after you fix it, dont worry the same thing will break again at some point. I could list all the repairs...but I dont want to bore you. A stack of papers from the dealer about the size of the bible. HOWEVER, the car is gorgeous, a pleasure to drive, and runs and drives like a dream in your own fantasy world in between repairs. So if you have unlimited time and money this car is for you, And you will love it! I loved it until I had a meltdown. Emissions test because a service engine soon light was on. Now there was nothing wrong with the engine of course, but something as little as a gas cap can set these lights on...then you fix it and expect to go pass emissions right? Wrong! You have to complete drive cycles as they call them and this is on all GM cars. You cant just drive it for a few weeks for it to reset...You have to drive 55 mph for 3 minutes and then come to a complete stop without hitting the brake...and there is more to it...up to 6 cycles to have the on board computer allow you to even test it again for a smog sticker or whatever your state calls it. And by that point...your late getting your emissions, you cant renew the registration and the drive cycles is a mystery when they will be complete. Eventually, this car that is so beautiful will make you have a meltdown...like that beautiful woman that you will just say I cant take it anymore."

"I have had no problems with this car other than preventative maint. Put new tires and brakes. The engine is very powerful and, when I change the oil, it only uses 1/2qt over a 3,000 mile period. I am using full synthetic so I run the car to 4,500 before I change the oil and at that point, having added 1/2qt at 3,000 miles oil level is full."
