Its a halo car, it showcases GM engineering and value. It might have a few issues the first year, that's typical. Might be hard to work on too but all the new cars are like that eh Mike ?

 Interesting....

 But I won't go near a new car these days.

It's not worth it, any mechanic today will tell you they don't want you work on the new cars anymore, you need factory trained mechanics at the dealer under warranty. The electronics have become way too complicated even for an experienced mechanic. Your average garage can still do tires, belts, brakes, suspension work, oil and filter changes, maybe replace an electric window motor or a headlamp, etc.

I had an electrical problem with my Dodge Caliber 2 years ago. The front left turn signal wasn't working properly. The bulbs would flash
but very quickly. I thought it was the flasher unit but I couldn't find where it was located. I went on the computer and was told that the
flasher unit was built in to the instrument panel and to replace the flasher unit the entire instrument panel would have to changed out at
a cost of just over $600 and labour on top of that.
I took the car to the dealer for repair and they worked on it for about 4 hours because electrical problems of any kind take a lot of diagnosing
and can be very expensive, and it was. The problem turned out to be the front turn signal bulb and the bill from the dealer was just under $500.
Go figure. The front left bulb would flash but it was still the front left bulb that was at fault. To change a light bulb on the Caliber the plastic
fender well splash shield has to be removed in order to get at the bulbs. Even replacing the entire headlight unit is a big job. The front bumper
cover has to be removed.
