We are trying to love the car because the design and use of space is excellent, but the drip-drip costs for replacing parts on our model is tiring, costly and getting worryingly frequent. And now the final straw is that we have discovered that the GM 12 month warranty on its parts is will not be honoured because we didn't get the starter replaced at a GM dealer when it broke down (late at night) ten months from new.
So I'm afraid, our experience of our particular model and the GM support... (read more)

We had the trip... (read more)
