I can't see the gauges, or gear shift lights. It is frustrating not to know exactly how many miles is on this car. I am trying to sell it and people don't want to buy it without knowing the mileage.

This is the third dash cluster in this car, they last about 50k miles then fails again. The part is over $800 a whack plus labor over $300. The electrical system in this car royally sucks. Everything fails. The worst part is everything is switched on the ground leg. This makes finding the problem a nightmare. Poorly engineered from a repair stand point in all areas.

I will NEVER buy a GM product again because of this car and the attitudes of the dealerships I've dealt with.

GM has electrical problems. This surprises nobody. You can only fit so many gadgets in a small space and cut costs so much on electrical components before bad things happen. The car also had reading lights in rear-view mirror that would stay on even with car off, burning the plastic reflectors inside (too much heat from these bulbs = bad design). I disconnected the electrical and ripped out bulbs to fix.

You can expect these issues from Ford and Chrysler as well. Buy a new foreign car. They are made to higher quality standards. Not necessarily designed better, but definitely built with high standards. Unfortunately, my 2000 Mitsubishi Galant has a rough ride which contributes to my headache issues, otherwise I would have kept it. I also own an old 1988 Ford truck and yes it has many issues as well. They are easy to fix usually, because it is really old.

the lights do not light up on the odometer and the lights that indicate park, drive, reverse. This is a safety concern and should be recalled.
