The old school Chevy prizm.

I am currently driving my Chevy prizm that my mother sold to me cheap while I save up money to get a newer car. The car gets me from a to b. The windows roll down manually and the seats are cloth. The air conditioning broke and only works on high which is normally not a problem. The car has about 160,000 miles on it which is not much but the car does burn oil very quickly. I have to put a quart of oil in at least twice a week. There is a problem with the muffler so the car does sound louder, especially while accelerating. The radio works great and has a cassette tape player so I can listen to all of my dads old tapes which I really like! Also I dislike the fact that there are no cupholders. Overall, I cannot wait to get a new car but this vehicle that I am driving right now is getting me around like I need with the few perks that I need.

It is easy on gas a maintenance.

I have had very little problems with my Chevy prizm. It is a 2001 and still runs good. It is easy on gas, handles great around curves, it is compact, can easily handle around curves, slides easily into most difficult parking spaces, it is a four door however, what I do not like about it is there is little room for backseat passengers. Other small problems I have encountered is the plastic door handles. They can break easily. I have had to replace the driver and the front passenger side twice and would have to wait for the mechanic to order the part. The tires are smaller than most modern day vehicles, but have not had to replace them, only occasionally adding air. Other than this, I really love my Chevy prizm. I just think the car manufacture should think about creating a more stronger door handles.

My 2001 Prizm: hang in there buddy.

My car is a great car, I have had it for a very long time, but it runs so smoothly. It is a reliable car that only has a few cosmetic problems. The performance of the car however is pretty great considering the age of the car. It has seen three owners, and when I get a new car, it will see another. The cosmetic issues with my car include the handles of the car falling off, the engine and brakes make a funny sounds.
