2000 Chevrolet Prizm 4dr Sedan


Review

This car was purchased new, but always burned engine oil too rapidly, and became quicker over time so I must carry oil with me. The front end alignment pulls to the right and noone can seem to fix it. 3 years ago (summer of 2005) A/C broke. I had to buy a new A/C unit which works so much better than the one the car originally came with. In November 2006 with just over 100,000 miles on the car, the catalytic converter went out - Major Bucks to fix this, and required for DMV renewal. After passing smog, only months later the check engine light is on again meaning I cannot register it this year unless it gets repaired again! Needless to say - time to buy a new car.


Best Features

Great gas mileage, no major engine failures


Worst Features

Agree about the cup holders. A/C unit is weak.

2000 Chevrolet Prizm 4dr Sedan


Review

I needed a car that was fuel efficient, low maintenance, and most importantly, reliable. After almost 2 years of ownership my Prizm has proven to be all three things! I was initially a little concerned because the mileage was a little high when I bought it (100k), but I'm at 114K and can say I've never experienced any problems with this car. It is a great value for the money.


Best Features

Quick gear shifts, small size, great handling (especially in snow!)


Worst Features

Interior comfort, more standard features, more stylish interior.

Review

Excellent value for a run-about/commuter. It is like other Toyotas, reliable, but hardly inspiring. Going with a 5 speed manual helps, some.


Best Features

Fuel economy! Regularly gets 35+ mpg. Overdrive switch.

Review

We've owned our Prizm for five years, now, and it is extremely dependable. With a 5-Speed, it also is surprisingly zippy. This year, we added the performance Michelins from Costco, and it actually handles quite well, too.


Best Features

Simple and Reliable.


Worst Features

None

2000 Chevrolet Prizm LSi 4dr Sedan


Review

Great Vehicle. It has been very reliable with no major problems reported. Great gas mileage and dependability. For someone who is 5' 6", this is perfect for me. Mostly City driving, occasional highway. For a compact car, it appears to have more room than you think.


Best Features

Being a compact car, loaded with features such as side air bags, temperature gauge on the Instrument Panel, and tachometer. Factory CD system sounds excellent.
