1990 Chevrolet Corsica LT 4dr Sedan


Review

First car had 128k when purchased. Thought it was horrible because of the paint but it ran perfect. Drove it for 2 years and now have 149k miles. It still runs perfect. Headliner has fallen, seats are harsh on lower back after a couple hours. Replaced R-12 refrigerant with R-134 for A/C. Replaced rear shocks because of excessive bounce; solved the problem. Nothing doesn't work!


Best Features

Reliable 2.2L 4 cylinder, good gas mileage, cold A/C


Worst Features

More gages in dash instead of idiot lights. Better paint, better lower back support. 4 or 5 speed automatic would be nice, because it revs very high going 70 mph

1990 Chevrolet Corsica LT 4dr Sedan


Review

This is my very first car and it holds it's name for a 15 year old car. This car is roomy, spacious, finely designed for a car of its time, and has proved quite reliable and strong after running 10 miles with no coolant, Redlining on the highway for about a minute (Long Story), and about 5 minutes of driving with it overheating. Even through all of this, it still runs in perfect condition and with regular maintenance, i am expecting another 50,000-100,000 more miles out of it. This is definitely a car that shouldn't have been taken out of production


Best Features

The nice looking front, The Low-end Torque of the 3.1 V6, The Passenger and cargo space, The comfort, the smooth Suspension, and how it can put up a good fight with many other cars.


Worst Features

Make handling much better, Make engine easier to work on (You have to have tiny hands to work on the 3.1), Make more high-end power to the engine, Make stronger fabric (Every back seat i've seen in one of these is toasted from the sun), and make the V6 more fuel efficient.

1990 Chevrolet Corsica LT 4dr Sedan


Review

I agree with many of the reviews listed here. The car seems to age quite well (150K). Any repairs needed are often very affordable. My biggest complaint is the paint job. It does not do justice for how the car runs. It has crossed my mind several times to get it repainted. All in all it's a great city car that will last you longer than you think.


Best Features

Interior is the perfect size, the 3.1 liter engine fares quite well for mid- size sedans. Has lasted me for 7 years plus the previous 6 from the first owner.


Worst Features

Not sure if GM did a recall on the paint job, if not they should and if they did I wish I'd had known.

1990 Chevrolet Corsica LT 4dr Hatchback


Review

I purchased this car from my grandma in 2001 with 26,000 miles on it. It is VERY reliable and quite fast too. I beat Civics all the time in racing. I love my Corsica and wouldn't give it up for any other car. The only thing that is bad about this car is the paint job. As soon as I get that done then it will be perfect. If you treat these cars with respect then they will give you many miles and years of reliable service.


Best Features

The storage concole, the tachometer, and the CL interior. Most of all the V6.


Worst Features

Water leaks in on carpet during rain storms. Fuse for door locks and radio blows after rain.
