2005 Chevrolet Classic Fleet 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 4A)
Sure, the car is plain and blends in with the crowd. But it's been super-reliable and great on gas. That's all I ask out of a daily driver, commuter vehicle. Bought with 30,000 miles on it, and just turned over 100,000 today. The only major problem I've had so far is some electrical thing with the fuel pump that was fixed under warranty. The factory CD player quit some time ago, but was easy to replace myself. I also had the problem with the carpet on the driver's side cut too short, causing it to pull away from the trim. It's also worn through where my left foot rests when I'm driving. All in all, nearly the perfect car for getting me to work and back every day and around town.
Just like the title says- basic, reliable and fuel-efficient transportation.
Don't run the chimes through the radio, I lost them when I replaced the factory unit. The console area is a bit crowded but not unusable. I'd also like to have a lock on the glove compartment, even as non-secure as those things are.
