Lurked here for a bit, added a comment or two maybe so I figured I should show a bit of her car after cleaning it up. Car is always clean so it doesn't take much to do it.
Manufactured in 9/2002 and purchased the same month from my uncle who was the GM at the Chevy dealer in Sturgeon Bay, WI.
4 Speed Auto
Lava with a Graphite interior
All the usual stuff standard equipment wise
Moon & Tunes
16" aluminum wheels
Engine block heater
Other than some scratches on the silver around the console the interior is still a nice environment to drive in.
In all the years we have had it the major things that needed work were known things mentioned in this forum.
Took one try to sort them out and they have been fine since.
Other than that was a brake job, replacing the wiper blades once or twice and recently I replaced the starter using info here to troubleshoot and replace.
Only two negatives right now.
Clear coat up top disassembling itself. I will deal with it either temporarily or permanently.
Damage to the paint on the hood. Chips etc. That will need some permanent work or I will order that lava red hood I see online.
You can't ask for a better car in it's class. Bummed that I can't find the original sales info but we still have the window sticker so that has to count for something.
