If you're looking for the family car this is it!
2001 Chevrolet Prizm Base
For starters, the car is extremely good on gas. For regular use, the gas last roughly 2 weeks and 6 days. The car is really great for small families as it is compact and has a cozy feel to it. The only real issue I had was when changing the oil ( I do this myself) the filter is tiny compared to other cars I've worked on. Other than that this is an all out reliable car, especially for small families. I would personally recommend this car. One more thing... I enjoy the classic feel of the car!
