"I have had this Prism for 7-8 years & it has been a great car. I was pretty much the only driver & have been very satisfied w/the Prism & everything about it. We did the maintenance required on schedule. I was never on the roadside because of any mechanical problems. I never worried about having problems w/the Prism. ALways reliable & satisfied with the performance of the Prism."

One of my most reliable vehicles

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 8

"Not the most stylish or comfortable car around, but will always start like a champ, gets you everywhere with no problem and makes a 30 to 32 miles per gallon. Only have to concern about oil leak and/or oil burning... Couldn't be perfect, but still a very good option."

"Had a chevy prizm 2000, my first car, my first love! Sad that I had to let him go after it got totaled on a rollover... but he saved my life (airbags didn't go off because I didn't have side airbags, however while rolling over seatbelt kept me in place the entire time, no major injuries). GREAT MPG... 30+ while commuting to work. Had engine replaced mostly because I had to keep putting oil in my car x1-2 a week (all good, first car, actually learned about cars in the process) but eventually this became quite an annoyance. But overall, if I could buy my car back the way it was before my accident I would in a heartbeat."
