I would have to agree that here in the future, everything about modern GM car design is about planned obsolescence and requirement of dealership service involvement. I mean rubber timing belt on an interference motor design? Really? After earlier past use of that design trashed the rep of several models in the past. Supposedly to cut "noise"? No transmission dipstick? Really? Just drive till it blows up or see your service provider regularly? I mean the car is small, that should be sufficient to price it cheaper. No wonder GM needed bail out. And by the way I come from a staunch GM worker home.
