Look up Consumer Reports for 2000-2002 Chevy Impalas and it got a solid
black circle (lowest score possible) for transmission reliability.
Unfortunately, its more than a minority.
I bought a GM thinking they make reliable transmissions (4T65) and engines
with their 3800 iron block that dates to the 50's and still problems
(leaking intake manifold). They suck period and deserve the billions of
dollars in losses.
Look up any two identical except for the nameplate vehicles in cr and you
will get different results. Pontiac Vibe/Toyota Matrix, Geo Metro, Toyota
Corolla, Geo Storm/Suzuki whatever they will have different ratings. Brand
name bias makes those magazine ratings worthless.
