"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."
"I own a 96, and my friend owns a 92. The only work I have had to do in 4 years is a water pump, battery, intake gasket, and at 140K mi a transmission. The V6 is pretty balsy, and has great torque output for a transverse engine/tranny setup. Car governs out at 113mph. TXV & scroll compressor A/C system keeps you super cool even in mid summer, has under-seat vents to keep back passengers feet cold/hot. Only downside is that legroom is lacking in the back due to seat design. I get anywhere from 18-24 mpg, depending on how heavy my foot is. Overall this is a great car, I almost bought one for my wife the other day. I would reccomend to anyone who is looking for a good car on a budget."
"This car is great! 11 years old. 193000mi. No major repairs needed yet. Slow coolant leak and possibly new thermostat soon. heater knobs also broke easily. biggest beef - when I had to replace the drivebelt had to work around engine mount...however was only my first one. had to have a mechanic take care of it. Hope I find a thousand more just like it."
