I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw a new HB Premier RS was being sold for $20,900 and in white - which goes fast in Arizona. I drove 3 hours away to get it.

Of course, after I got talked into a protection package and add in finance charges, it's like buying it without the huge rebates.

I still love the car, though!

Two problems so far:

1.) I had a rear tire blow out on the highway just hours after I bought it. Not the car's fault, and the dealership is going to take care of it, but still sucks to ride on a donut in a brand new car


2.) There is a high-pitched whistle coming from engine. It isn't the a/c. Not too loud, but it just sounds weird. Going to ask my local Chevy dealer to look at it when they replace the tire.

What I love:
1.) Sporty, yet mature look.
2.) All technology is awesome. From navigation, to receiving text messages, bluetooth, and sound system. It was a little overwhelming when I was listening to navigation prompts and the "text received" chime kept coming on. But that's easily fixed by adjusting volume controls for both.
3.) Roomy for a compact
4.) Decent acceleration. Some YouTube car reviewers complained that the acceleration lags given the 157hp. It doesn't take off, but I don't feel like it's underpowered either. It also doesn't feel like the engine struggles when going up inclines - SO much better than Hyundai Velocitor in that regard.

What I dislike (no particular order):
1.) Child seat hooks are a bit of a pain to get to.
2.)It would have been cool if it came with a built in garage door opener, but that's no big deal.
3.) Wireless phone charger port doesn't work on my Galaxy S8+. It's still a nice place to set IPod if you use it via Bluetooth.

Oh! I am also getting pretty good gas mileage. The dash says 33mpg combined so far. Not sure if that's just because I'm driving slow on the spare right now or what.

Welcome from a fellow Arizona area resident in California. Many Dealers pump up the tires to dangerous levels before sales to make the car appear better, a sales technique. I bought from Bradley in Lake Havasu, worst dealership in Mohave County. Did you happen to get 20% off MSRP, just saw that commercial. We have had new owners picking up 2017 units for less than $14K, insane!

I hope I'm replying correctly. Yeah, pretty sure I got the 20% off MSRP. I was just looking at rebates which were over $6k between GM and dealership.
