"I bought my 1995 Corsica (Cory) with 110,000 miles on it. Changed the oil every 3000 milles; 65% Highway miles; 30% county roads; 5% mud/gravel roads; overhauled transmission at 175,000; replaced alternator, belts, radiator, and air conditioner .. twice; rarely washed it cuz I was afraid the paint might continue to flake off; consistant 31 mpg; remains a nice quiet cruise at 70+ mph; been a nice work-car with a current mileage of 350,254 miles. There will be a party when this ole (Cory) quits. Until then. I can't conplain much."

"Bought this car sight unseen from a co-worker at lunch one day for $300. It needed a fuel pump and I had never owned a sedan. That was six years and over 50k miles ago. It has 168k miles on it and seems to still have a lot of life in it. In the time we've had it, we've had minor mechanical repairs including the fuel pump. water pump, alternator, cooling fan, and several coolant leaks. This may sound like a lot, but I owned it from 115k to 168k miles, a period when most cars die completely. Here's what I don't like. even though I rated the car high in reliability, I rated it low in quality. All of the paint peeled off. The interior has a lot of pieces that rattle or are loose. The upholstery didn't hold up well. All of the seats have seat covers. Here's what I love about the car: 1) The 3.1L gas has lots of get up and go. Passing, merging, and driving winding roads to go skiing are no trouble. 2) Fuel economy is great with 20 in town and 28 on the highway at 70-75mph. 3) Cold A/C! 4) SUPER COMFORTABLE SEATS! 5) Really big trunk. 6) I can always trust the car to take me where I'm going no matter how far it is or how hot or cold the weather may be. It will start when it is 10 below in north Idaho and won't overheat in traffic in 105 deg in Boise. My wife and I just bought a new Inifiniti and we had every intention of selling the Corsica. It didn't pass emissions and I have been working on it. Every time I get behind the wheel to test drive it I don't want to sell it. This car is so much more comfortable that my new luxury car!"

"I bought my 1995 Corsica before I headed off to college with 34,000 miles. Now I'm 30 and still driving it....not out of necessity, but by choice. It has 169,000 miles on it and is one of the most comfortable and powerful cars (for the price) I have driven. The only problem are the coils and ignition wires, which have gone bad on me twice. This last repair was pretty spendy ($750). Apparently, there was a manufacturing problem with these wires and this problem is common. However, the first time this happened was with about 40,000 miles and I haven't had any problems with it until now. I hope to drive mine for a few more years. Unlike some of the reviews I've read, my paint job looks brand new when I get it washed. About 30 mpg on the highway."
