Being female I feel I got screwed on this one. I got an beater that was filthy and smelled terrible while the Chevy dealer took a week to fix it. I guess they did not realize I am already a Ford girl! I will not be purchasing another Chevrolet when my car dies. This one just happened to be all I could afford when my last car died.

In April of 2000, when the car was only 4 years old, the timing chain broke for the first time, when it did it cracked the head causing the repairs to be over $600.
