I did lots of research before I bought this car, and it paid off. As many probably know, it's basically a Corolla with a Chevy emblem slapped on it -it has the same great reliability as a Toyota but is significantly cheaper. I own the 5-spd manual, which accelerates reasonably well and gets good gas mileage. There have been no problems with this vehicle. All I've had to do was regular maintenance. This is a basic economy car, so if you're looking for excitement and luxury, look elsewhere. That said, it is a reasonably comfortable ride, but the back is lacking leg space. I would highly recommend getting the manual transmission if you want improved gas mileage and quicker acceleration.
Quickness of 5 spd manual. Low gas consumption. Reliability. Purchase cost
