1999 Chevrolet Prizm 4dr Sedan

Review

I have a base model with a 5 speed manual, air conditioning, cassette, tilt wheel, side airbags, ABS, and alloy wheels. I have had ZERO problems in a year of ownership. I STOLE this car- a comparable Toyota Corolla (the same car) with more miles and less options was selling for $3000 more! Looks good, and feels solid. Tires are the weak point- the stock Goodyears were terrible. I upgraded to 185/60-14 Yokohama Avid T4's and the car is far more stable. The cost cutting is apparent in the sheet metal, though: it dents and dings extremely easily. Overall a trouble free, enjoyable piece of point-to-point transportation.

Favorite Features

The engine. For a 2400 lb car, the 120 hp motor zips this thing along pretty well. The five speed definately helps, too.

Suggested Improvements

The most frustrating feature is the cup holder- anything taller than an airline soda can COMPLETELY blocks the radio. DUMB! Stock tires are garbage, but that was easily remedied.
