1998 Chevrolet Prizm 4dr Sedan


Because gasoline use is the single
biggest environmental impact for most
Americans, I was looking for a fuel-
efficient vehicle. Leased it new, then
bought it at end of lease. With 5 speed
manual it accelerates adequately. I put
on optional fatter tires when factory
tires wore out, which improved
handling. Only real problem has been
Evap canister purge valve going bad at
50000 miles, but this is an emissions
problem. Doesn't affect mileage or
driveability at all.

Best Features

37 mpg highway w/ 5 speed manual. auto running lights. Pretty good factory cd/stereo.

Worst Features

seatbelt retractor too weak, must make sure belt isn't hanging out door before closing. Driver's side floor mat creeps backwards.
