You cannot kill my Prizm

1998 Chevrolet Prizm 4dr Sedan


This is a completely honest review of my 1998 Prizm. The bad: -boring look -less than expected 4 cylinder pep -awful body roll on corners -a lot of rattles on bumpy road at 170,000 -way to loud at any speed over 70 mph the good: -unbelievable reliability -quality parts-quality -comfortable ride at 65 mph -Superior gas mileage -not a bad size overall inside -easy dash layout my Prizm refuses to die. I bought it with 150,000 miles currently has 170,000. I have done nothing but change plugs and fluid, air filter. I Punch this car at every stop, it shifts smooth every time. Engine is not bad at all performance wise for its mileage. Don't be afraid to buy one with high miles! Commuters<----buy!

Best Features

-Gas mileage -Reliability -Small, easy to drive -Does everything i need to do -Starts, runs, shifts the same every single day. -Peppy engine -Commute 80 miles 5 days a week. No problems

Worst Features

-Cruise Control! -Buy one with a 4 speed, i have the three speed auto and its super loud on the highway. Good job Toyota! Chevy obviously can take no credit for this vehicle considering the only Chevy part in it broke at 150,000-Ac Compressor. Next one i buy will be a 2001 Corolla with pw,pl,cruise
