"The reason these Chevy Prizims are so reliable and dependable is they were built for GM by Toyota. They are actually Toyota Corolas. If they were built by GM they would have been worn out and crushed years ago."

"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."
