OK I really need help here.  The last few cars I got based on reviews in books and was sorry later.  Now, for those with real world experience with this make and model, what do you think?  I need a reliable, quality vehicle at an affordable price.
Do you like the car you have?

Thanks. Confused

I have a 2003.  Assy quality (Oshawa) is first rate.  Too bad the bean counters at GM nickel and dimed the h@#* out of the parts quality.  Everything from the hvac control panel to the multifunction switch to even the blockheater has had to be replaced on this thing.  Yet another wheel hub has to be replaced now.  This was bought new, and I have warranty repairs (long gone now) that nobody can believe.
example (accurate too):

Much as the concept of this car is great, the execution leaves plenty to be desired.
I'd say run.
