Summary:

This car rocks

Faults:

Nothing much; alternator replaced, serpentine belt and battery.

Regular maintenance; oil and filters.

General Comments:

Outside the car it looks like it was designed by a blind man.

But it's the most reliable car you can think of.

It always starts.. great fuel economy (better than some euro japanese crap that weighs much less..!!).

The suspension is great.. I like the American way, not the firm suspension in euro cars, where when you drive over a bump, your kidneys are in your mouth..

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Faults:

Nothing. I never had any serious problems since I bought it about a year ago. I changed the oil, got new tires, nothing special, just regular maintenance.

General Comments:

I have never had such a reliable car in my whole Life. I first met this car when I was a student in the U.S. back in '95. I rented a Corsica for two weeks to cruise the mid west. I had a reliable impression of this car and somehow I had never forgotten about it. Nine 9 years later when I switched jobs and had to return my company car I bought a 94 Corsica. Only negative thing I could think of is the weak suspension, too American, not very comfortable at high speeds.

You should get a bigger rear sway bar, and wider alluminum wheels, it makes the ride much softer and sportier.
