Editor's Overview

The Spark hatchback is Chevrolet's smallest and least-expensive car. Starting around $13,000, the Spark undercuts the Fiat 500 and Scion iQ by thousands and offers a reasonably roomy interior. Gasoline versions achieve up to 39 mpg, and an electric model is rated at 82 miles per charge. It can get jittery on the highway, but is at home in the city.

That the mileage is so great, and it's great for someone that doesn't need a lot of space for children, pets and people.

I love the hatchback with the panel that covers what is in it. I love the fact the car has a gas cover release in the car, so no one can put anything in, or syphon out the gas. I love the fact that I can park almost anywhere. Love the fact that the gas mileage is phenomenal. Only complaint, so far, is that if it's left sitting for a long time, it won't start. Took 3 or 4 roadside jumpstarts and then trips to dealership to figure out it needed a new battery. I'm also very nervous about driving on the highway, as the car is so small.

Small car, fun to drive, great buy!

My little Chevy Spark gets 41 mpg, is fun to drive, and I get compliments on it's design and bright red color everywhere I go. It has a manual 5 -speed transmission, power windows, a nice stereo, safety features, and is easy to maintain. It is not a car for people who like to speed, go off-road, carry a lot of passengers or cargo, or who like to "keep up with the Joneses." This is for people who appreciate a smaller car to commute and get great gas mileage and buy a car at a reasonable price tag.

- Beth E

Eco-friendly mini gas saver.

Does very well on gas mileage, can get up to about 40 miles to the gallon and really helps your dollars stretch. The compact build is helpful in squeezing into tiny places most other cars cannot fit into. The car is extremely tough and can take a lot of harsh treatment and still recover. The problem with the spark is that since it's such a specially designed car, its really difficult to find the available and correct parts for repairs or maintenance.
