So I just purchased this car used with just a little over 96,000 miles. Gotta say great choice. We've been having a hellish winter here -20's not uncommon followed by 6-12 inches of snow when it warms up. This car has never even hesitated. Mine is the 5 speed and I love the gas mileage. Awesome heat!!! A/C works too. Mine had the usual door handle break off, but the previous owner fixed it. I can't believe I actually enjoy driving this car. I wish the new Corolla wasn't cvt then I'd buy one next year.

I bought this car new, ordered it in fact, down to every feature. It was my very first new car.
Fast forward 12 years and my baby has 120,000 miles on her and has never let me down.
I replaced the tires a few times, the compressor on the air conditioner and a few minor things, but this car has never left me stranded at the roadside.
I still get 35-40mpg. I will drive this car till the wheels fall off.
I expect to put on another 100,000 easily.

I bought this car from a family member, with 14,000 mi. on it. I've followed the maintenance manual and have had NO problems! I've had to replace the tires, oil, spark plugs, serpentine belt and battery; the normal maintenance stuff. I had to have the A/C charged a few times - but that only $20. It now has 115,000 miles and has NEVER broken down. It's been a fabulous car! I was informed that it is really a TOYOTA COROLLA with a Chevy name plate on it. Chevrolet and Toyota entered into a Joint Venture and produced this wonderful, dependable car - I wouldn't have purchased it otherwise. And it's great on gas.
put in it and put in Mobil 1. maybe 5w30? my prizm took 10w30 for some reason. and that is why i was asking what the tracker took, because i thought all 4 bangers took 5w30, until i owned the Prizm. ...
