The 1.8 liter engine pumps out a lot of
ponies for its size. I was very happy
with the way the thing took off. I
think that the 3 spped auto is a joke
and the 4 speed is the way to go. On
previous models, the 3-speed was the
only auto and Chevrolet changed it and
added fuel economy bu the little
overdrive button on the shifter. Great
car. It is a shame they are
discontinuing the Prizm.
I like the LSi model, it is the better
way to go. Sharp little car.
I hate the head rests. I just took them
off. They are not comfortable at all.
The car still doesn't take off like the
Ford Focus standard 2 liter split port
engine, but it goes plenty fast enough.
