Most reliable car I've ever had
By guitfiddle07 on
2005 Chevrolet Classic Fleet 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 4A)
I believe most of these cars were either rentals or government fleet vehicles.
I believe mine was a rental. At any rate, I have 165,000 miles on it and I put about 40,000 a year on it.
I put new brakes on once, wiper motor and new tires.
Replaced the serpentine belt as preventative maintenance and that's about it.
They are not very fun to drive and handle like a boat after the suspension ages (not something I care about), but it is a great dependable car that is cheap to maintain.
I will buy one for each of my kids when they are old enough.
Poor interior as stated by so many other owners. Seems some of the interior electronics are prone to failure (e.g., hazard switch, wiper motor, AC/Heater control) but all are very inexpensive and easy to replace yourself ($20 to $150).
