Typical GM: Solid, but under-rated.

1996 Chevrolet Corsica 4dr Sedan


Had this Corsi for 16 years now, and not once has it been to the shop for anything more than an alternator. It's a typical Chevy of the mid-eighties/nineties: an inexpensive vehicle for the masses with pretty solid build construction, marred by poor quality control. But considering how much more I would have paid for an equivalent Honda or Toyota, this was a good value. I spend pennies on repair, not hundreds. I agree with others that the paint is awful, but in my case, the clearcoat is what's messed up. It has swirls and water spots even when dry. Cheap ABS plastic knobs keep breaking and falling off. The interior fabric is also chintzy, but isn't that why they make seat covers...

Favorite Features

V6 has good low-end torque, gets around the city good. Very easy to drive - no blind spots. Steering is mushy, but it goes where you tell it to. Almost Buick-like in how soft the suspension's geared. Maintenance is cheap because the mechanic doesn't have to be a contortionist to work on it.

Suggested Improvements

Not an improvement, but a question, as GM's option lists have always been rather weird. This vehicle was bought as a former rental. It has the V6, automatic, and all the power equipment offered on that model year - but no cruise control. Makes no sense!
