FromTheSnow Great Daily Driver. November 28, 2015 LS
Overall Score
1.8L, 5spd manual. Got it in April since my old car crapped out. Got it with 35,000kms & 14 months of bumper to bumper warranty left on it. Other then some sensors replaced under warrenty, it has been plenty reliable. Its fast enough to be a daily driver. I find in 5th gear on the highway @100kmh it is turning 2500rpm, then @115kph it is turning 3000rpm. By the point it is getting buzzy. My average fuel composition is 7.3L/100km, that is semi hard driving The interior build quality is comparable to the aisles in Toys'r'Us, had plastics for days, but it is a cheap GM not an S-Class. It does its intended purpose well, basic transportation from Point A - B. I would not buy another one, but I would for sure recommend it for a cheap daily driver.

Manufacturer Recall Number:

Units Affected:

Notification Type:
Safety Mfr
On certain vehicles equipped with a 1.8L engine and 6 speed automatic transmission, the transmission turbine shaft may fracture, disabling transmission gears 3 through 6. If this were to occur while the transmission is in 1st or 2nd gear, the transmission would fail to up-shift past 2nd gear, limiting vehicle speed. If this were to occur while the transmission is in 3rd through 6th gear, motive power would be lost and the vehicle would coast until vehicle speed was reduced to allow the transmission to down-shift to 2nd gear. Limited vehicle speed or a loss of motive power could increase the risk of a crash causing injury and/or damage to property. Correction: Dealers will replace the transmission turbine shaft.

Certain vehicles may fail to comply with the requirements of Canada Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 108 - Lighting System and Retroreflective Devices. The headlamp high-beam lens is not marked with the bulb type, contrary to the requirements of the standard. Correction: An manufacturing change has been undertaken to prevent this non-compliance condition from continuing. No corrective recall action is required as the non-compliance condition is deemed to be non-safety related.
