It's a Shame to See It Go!

2002 Chevrolet Prizm 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


"Reliability" is the key word when
discussing a Prizm. I now have owned
five of them, plus a Corolla and a Chevy
Nova ('87). In all these cars the only
mechanical problem I ever had was a
clutch slave cyliner ($40.00) in the
Nova. That is amazing. GM's decision to
stop making the Prizm will send me to
Toyota for a Corolla. However, my most
recent 2002 Prizms (Yes I bought two of
them this weekend before the rebates
ended) enabled me to save over $4,000 per
car compared to the Corolla.

Best Features

The peppy 1.8 liter engine zips the car along famously, and if you can find a manual transmission (difficult at this point), the performance is even better. The gas milage with the manual is 40 mpg.

Worst Features

I don't like the radio being situated behind the cup holder; however that is a small deficiency.
