1998 Chevrolet Prizm LSi 4dr Sedan


I bought this car used with 73k miles on it after my old Hyundai got totalled. Since the Prizm/Corolla has a reputation for reliability I thought it was a safe bet. Overall the car has always gotten me where I needed to go and it has never stranded me anywhere. Unfortunately a few aspects of the car bring the whole thing down. Shortly after I bought the car the A/C stopped working. The A/C compressor had gone bad and the whole system needed replacing to the tune of $1800.

Best Features

It always starts and runs pretty good at 135k miles.

Worst Features

Better interior quality. The interior door handle broke and the Chevy dealer charged $55 just for the little plastic part! The power locks no longer operate correctly and neither does the remote unlock. I've spent over $2000 on the A/C system alone. Not good.
