Very Reliable Car

by from Sterling Heights, MI on September 9, 2009

Bought used 2 years ago with 52K. Now around 87K. Only repair outside of regular maintenance items has been heater blower (incovenient, but didn't make the car unusable). Fuel economy is a consistent 33-35mpg no matter how driven. Drives like a little car. LSi has features of a midsize that are awesome (upgraded stereo, cruise control, power windows/locks, moonroof).

Purchased 2001 Lsi in 2004. Now has @90,000 miles. Biggest maintenance problem was air conditioning failed two years ago and had to be replaced, but that was a comfort issue not mechanical. Still has a very modern look. Not as comfortable for big people or those with a growing family.

I bought this car brand new,good size,easy to use,properly mantained since 2001, now 59,000 miles later I am having issues with the motor RPM,on the last 3 months I have spent over $1000 on repairs. Main issues with the vibrations or low idle speed when engine is warm and I stop at traffic lights.

This is one of the best vehicles for your buck that is still on the road. I don't know if this one has been taken care of but the one I bought was taken care of fairly well and I would still be driving it had it not been for my brother bugging me to let him buy it and finally gave in and bought a Camry. I have also owned a Corolla and the Prizm is exactly like th Corolla except it has a Chevrolet emblem on it! Great car!
