Excellent Commuter Car

Vehicle1998 Chevrolet Prizm 4dr Sedan
ReviewBought this car new; now have 105K miles. Had to reset air bag sensor 2x. Front brakes lasted until 100K miles & rear brakes not yet worked. This has been great no-frills reliable transportation. 5 Speed provides great gas mileage - consistent 38+ mph in the summer 32mph in the cold winter. 5 speed also allows for adequate acceleration when needed. Under load (> 2 people) need to delay shifting if you're merging onto a hwy. With rear passengers rear end tends to bottom out easily. Front room comfortable for someone up to 5'10; beyond that it gets cramped. Rear room gets tight for anyone over 4'. Body still holding up well after 7 lovely winters.
Best FeaturesGas mileage, smooth 5 speed
Worst Featuresbetter suspension, more rear leg room, better quality fabric in the standard model.
