1996 Chevrolet Corsica 4dr Sedan


I purchased this car from a co-worker in December 2000. It had 100,000 highway miles on it because he commuted to central NY from northern PA for the job. Even so, the car has performed excellently for me overall. I have had to make costly repairs, but have since learned that it was due more to mechanic's greed than actual necessity. Engine still purrs at 170,000. On mine and other models I've seen, I've noticed the gas cap cover tends to rust off, and the doors stick in cold temperatures. Also, my "Check Engine" light has been on for 3 years, but I suspect this is from emissions (gascap again) and not mechanical. If you can find a model with reasonable mileage at 10 years, it's worth a look

Best Features

ABS brakes, daytime lights. V6 models don't lose power on hills. And at 20 city and 29 highway, gas mileage is respectable, if not fantastic.

Worst Features

1996 was the last year this model was built, unfortunately. Exterior design doesn't make this car a "babe magnet", but it's okay. Rims are rusted on mine, so examine them closely. I think there is a more rust-proof rim option.
