Summary:

FUN for trip only in town!

Faults:

Few minor details of workmanship, front wheel dis alignment not possible to be corrected since new... defect in both sides, one side caster and in the other other side bad camber value... toe corrected, but car still go to the right...A/C work fine, but... chevrolet may rethink A/C compressor start temperature value, too hot for my country, maybe good for economy, but its uncomfortable.. once it started, cabin cooling cycle its quick.

General Comments:

The its small, but feels solid, good balance, very cheap car, but impressive performance for this small engine...

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Yes totally agree with you, it's a really nice car, the best in the segment as well as in upper segment too. The truth is its actual name is Daewoo Matiz II 1.0 litre engine which came in 2003 all over the world. When GM bought Daewoo than Chevy came up with the Spark, which is nothing but a Daewoo Matiz II. Spark is 99.9 % taken from Daewoo Matiz II with just little cosmetic changes in the model with the looks that's it. I own Daewoo Matiz since 9 years; it's a complete masterpiece, no car on this earth can compete this one.
