I bought this for $3000 over the summer to replace a Cavalier. Mileage is great, performance is pretty good considering it only has 125 hp. Put some decent tires on it and cornering is really fun. Stereo is not too shabby either. Only drawbacks that I have encountered are fading paint, the interior plastic around the door frame is peeling (that most have come from the GM part of the joint project), and no center armrest. Besides that you can't beat it. Like everyone else has already said, it's just a Toyota with a Chevy emblem on it. A very easy way to save $2000 vs a Corolla, and even more on gas. This thing is bulletproof with proper maintenance. The perfect city car!
Stereo with standard CD player sounds good. Turns on a dime. Toyota drive train. Great gas mileage.
Some of the interior plastic is very cheap. Door handles seem to fall apart (cheap plastic loses its integrity when exposed to prolonged heat exposure). No center armrest. A 60/40 fold down seat would have been a nice standard feature.
