1996 Chevrolet Corsica Sedan 4dr Sedan


Review

For what it is -- a very inexpensive
family vehicle -- this car has been
great to me. Bought it in 97 with 24K
and have put 120K more on it myself.
NEVER have had any drivetrain trouble
at all. The 3.1 V6 is a solid motor.
Only had to replace alternator and
radiator. However, the braking system
is weak and I have had to put a LOT of
sets of brake pads on. To be fair,
though, I have driven the heck out of
this thing. I drive hard and fast
about everywhere I go (except in school
zones and neighborhoods!!) and she's
been right there with me.


Best Features

Good motor, reliable, easy to drive.


Worst Features

None - they don't make the darn thing anymore, so it's a moot point!

Review

This car has been one expense after
another. Three fuel injectors have
gone (at different times), the
transmission needed to be rebuilt at 6
years old, various other engine fixes
that seem to cost me at least $500 a
fix. I was averaging over $200 a month
for repair bills. Paint has peeled off
in huge pieces.


Best Features

Comfortable to drive.

Review

It was a solid car - took it through
hell and back and its still kicking at
nearly 200K miles. Not expensive, not
much to look at but it will get you to
where you need to go.
