2001 Chevrolet Prizm 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


I have had the worst luck with this car. Three months after I bought it, it began to stall out when I would start it after not driving it for awhile. (The mass airflow sensor was faulty.) On a road trip my timing belt snapped resulting in needing to totally replace the engine. The most recent thing to go wrong with this car is that the hood latch was faulty resulting in my hood being bent beyond a cheap repair. (Had to replace the hood, both quarter panels, paint them and finally replace the hood latch.) Everything that has gone wrong with this car was an expensive fix. The other issue I have with this car is it gets less than 30 mpg highway.

Best Features

Cruise control, standard cd player wasn't bad.

Worst Features

A four leaf clover in every car, better gas mileage, back seats that fold down.
