Pros: "MPG for age, acceleration, can take a beating"

Cons: "Fuel pump replaced 3 times, loud ride"

"This review is based on the age and high mileage of the car: I got this car in 2011 when it had 122,000 miles. Fast forward to 2014 and now it has 195,000 miles. It is the base model so it has power of hand windows and locks but that is trivial. The interior is basic but there was no/minimal fancy equipment in any car back in the day. I call it my little race car. It still has pep at over 10 years old. Acceleration is still great, but I don't want to overdo it since the car is old. Transmission and engine are still good. It still gets good gas mileage. It is not a quiet ride and I feel every pot hole. It is getting old and well-driven so don't expect anything like the new fancy, cars. The two things I absolutely do not like: 1. I have twice lost the front plastic part that has the Chevy symbol. Both times it flew off on the highway. 2. Fuel pump has been replaced 3 times and it is working on a 4th. Car sometimes does not start unless I leave the key in the electrical on position to prime the pump. Many parts have been replaced but any car at this age and mileage would probably need new parts. Wiper motor, wiper fluid line, spark plugs, ignition coil, alternator, fuel pump x3, rack and pinion, front strut, the engine fan (led to slight overheating) and ball joints were replaced. Something else involving the front left wheel and grinding noise as replaced but I don't remember what. If you need a good, cheap to get around and can find a lower mileage car then it is worth it. A+ in snow with no added weight."

"I received this car post-graduation. It's been a great low-cost car and has really required only minimal maintenance (oil, tires, brakes). Had a few other failures a couple of times in my 2 year ownership, but nothing that kept it down more than a day. I would recommend it to anyone on a tight budget."

"Bought this new in 1999. Planned on keeping it only a few years, but I like it so much I'm still driving it. I've only done routine maintenance...never had any major repair necessary. I live in Arizona and the a/c still blows ice cold. Just one problem...right after the warranty expired the digital odometer / trip meter went out. Still drives like a dream and handles very well. Even the cassette player still works and the speakers sound great. I would have no fear of taking this vehicle on a long road trip. Because of this car I haven't had a car payment in ten years."

"Great vehicle! I bought it with 100K miles and it is very dependable. I love everything about this bar but the seats and how they don't go back far enough. This car is for a smaller person but Overall, great drive, interior and exterior design."
