2009 Chevrolet Spark PS


Value for money car


AC is insufficient. Not comfortable for the rear seat passengers.

General Comments:

Good interiors with excellent seating positions. Compact and superb for city traffic. Stable even at higher speed above 100 kms/hr. Spacious interiors.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

2007 Chevrolet Spark LT 1.0 petrol


Not suitable if you don't have a chauffeur to get it fixed every fortnight


1. AC is simply useless. 2 tweaks by GM workshop, and it still refuses to cool the car.

2. Dashboard makes weird noises while accelerating.

3. On complaining, Dealer/Company give you a snob look, asking why you were cheap and bought their cheapest car.

4. Maintenance costs comparable with cars costing 3 times as much.

General Comments:

An OK car with good looks, but frequent problems ensure that a fortnight never passes when you don't have to worry about getting something fixed in a Spark.

I am from Indonesia, Jakarta, and my yellow 2006 Chevy Spark has been around for at least 2 years.

To be honest, the Spark is too minimalist for me, but it works fine for my wife.

Anyway, I never found anything similar to your complaint, the air-con works okay for 2 years in a row. Yup, some noises did came from the front dash, and all I did is put something in the gap where the rattling noise came from. Well admit it, it is not a lavish car such as Aston Martin or McLaren.

And the way GM people welcome us is quite warm and friendly. They understand that they are dealing with economy car, not a cheap car.

Well, we come to no conclusion, it is a mere different perspective on the very same object I suppose.
