This Chevy Prizm was my first car. I'm just 16 but the quality of the car is amazing. The car is mainly quiet when driving and is easy to maintain. I bought the car when it had 50,000 miles and have had virtually no problems. The Prizm has cruise, power everything, automatic lights, with a 3 speed automatic. The car handles the turns well and has just enough power to travel the hills and highways. Overall a good car.
The gas mileage is great! The stereo system is good (although I installed subs) and the ride quality is amazing.
3 months after purchasing the car I noticed water in the trunk. I had to take out the light and seal the inside of the light to fix the problem. Also the check engine light has come on 3 times in 6 months. I had it checked but nothing was wrong with the engine. Finally the cupholders are awkward.
