Excellent. What a bargain. £9500 for a 1 year old, 6000 ex demo, 4 year warranty thrown in! and with a host of gadgets..cruise control, auto wipers/lights, start/stop, reverse camera, Bluetooth,sat nav, usb, and all the normal stuff. Looks more than a Chevrolet In the cabin, good quality build..soo far..nice aluminium style plastic trim and the partial cloth dash is a nice touch There are a lot of buttons to get used too.. but there are all easy to reach and don't clutter Lots of little cubby holes to hide things in, it comes with NAV600, easy to use with accident and traffic info. If you want up to date maps its a £100 sd card. Looks great from the outside, lovely lines, I had it compared to looking as good as a 5 series estate! You wont see many of these on the road, ive seen 2 since ive had mine so a bit of exclusivity..thanks to Chevy no longer marketing it. Highly recommended..you will get better, just not at the price they are getting rid of them for!
Reliability

Only had it 3 weeks before I found a large puddle of black oil on the drive way! checked the dip stick..full..turned out the rear gear box seal had failed! There are not many Chevy dealers around, and although it is based on the Astra, a lot of parts are specific, and most have to be ordered..a 3 week wait but got a free Corsa for the time..no problems since and customer services were spot on..so i'll let this one go..we will see..
Performance

4 out of 5

Rides fine, if you want better, pay for it! It's not a VW or BMW. Good cruiser, accelerates very well at 50-80mph range, mpg is very good..i got 58.9mpg on a 380 mile motorway/A road. Around town you have to work the revs more and it drops to 51/52 and best to turn stop start off for this..easy..one touch button

I have the 2013 SW LT+ and think that an updated review might be due. The 1.4 turbo is quite punchy. One could use it in a cultivated manner and enjoy 30mpg (the combined average since I bought it in April 2013, so it will converge to a smaller figure). Start-stop, quick navi, automatic climate control, two engines in one, space, cruise control, rear camera and the PRICE are my personal highlights. I cannot comment on reliability still, but I can confirm that the quality of build and materials are ok for the price.

Only owned for two weeks but very pleased so far. Very well equipped, great value, engine is well matched to the size of the car, has more than enough go for overtaking but is returning good MPG so far. I like the driving position and it is as good a drive as you need to have some fun. I suspect there are better handling estates out there but not for the money. Definitely consider this car, go take a look I think you will be pleasantly surprised
