This is a great small car. It features good design, fine build quality, spunky performance w/ 5 speed, great mileage and reliability, plus decent space and comfort. Handling is good and improves remarkably when you get rid of the OEM tires and put on a set of good ones.
The engine is smooth and powerful and the manual transmission makes driving lots of fun. Love the mileage too, usually average 32-35 in mixed urban-suburban driving. CD player is good quality. Inexpensive for what you get!
Don't make them anymore... sad -this was the best car in Chevy's stable for many years.
