2001 Chevrolet Prizm 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)

Review

I bought this car because I have a '97 Prizm that I have really liked and been impressed with. While most aspects of the '01 model are better, the reliability has decreased in my opinion. I've had multiple problems with it within the first 6 months of ownership- most of them fairly minor, but a couple fairly expensive. The dealer replaced several sensors under warranty, but several other things have gone wrong since the warranty expired. Most alarmingly, the engine seems to be burning a lot of oil (about 1 quart every 1000 miles), especially considering that it only has 63,000 miles on it. If only was as reliable as my bullet-proof '97 Prizm.

Favorite Features

Fuel economy (34 mpg), sporty handling, lots of room inside, decent acceleration

Suggested Improvements

Build an engine that doesn't burn oil after 60,000 miles and never put a 3 speed auto in any car again.
