Top-notch daily car for the thrifty driver

2002 Chevrolet Prizm Base

My car is reasonably comfortable but isn't one that I prefer to drive long distances. I've had it for several years and haven't had to do anything for it outside of basic maintenance. The fuel mileage is phenomenal.. I get about 36 mpg mixed driving and can get as high as 42 mpg on the highway. It's very basic: manual transmission, manual locks, manual windows.. it's all manual and that's the way I like it.

A reliable car with little perks.

2002 Chevrolet Prizm Base

I don't know if it's the way it was made or how old it is, but the plastic is deteriorating and the door handles have snapped off. Other than, it has actually been a really easy car to drive. It rarely has problems and runs well. It is frustrating that it is rear wheel drive though so I can't drive it in the snow or up to the mountains.

Great on gas and runs great but very small inside.

2002 Chevrolet Prizm Base

It runs great and is great on gas. The trunk has a good size but the car overall is just pretty small. Especially when I need to fit a car seat in the back seat. You have to move the front seat almost all of the way up which leaves no room for anyone to ride in the front seat.

- Kayla O

I get a lot of miles per gallon of gas. Such a smooth ride.

2002 Chevrolet Prizm Base

I really love my car. It rides great and drives good. It was given to me as a gift from my uncle four years ago. It is good on gas and I haven't had any major problems with it. Have enough space to be comfortable as well. I wouldn't get rid of it for nothing.
