2012 Chevrolet Celta LS 1.0 flex (any blend of gas / ethanol) from Brazil


Reliable, nice looking, super compact with an above average engine for its category


Nothing (and where I live the roads are not paved AND I beat the hell out of this guy!).

General Comments:

Considering the Brazilian market, it is an awesome entry level car.

Only personal complaints: The suspension could be a little better and the tires are too small so the car doesn't adhere to the track as it should when it is raining.

It is said that this is not a very safe car (LA NCAP 1), but so aren't most entry level cars here.

The updated 1.0 VHC-E (Very High Compression - Economy/Ecologic/Enhanced, as Chevrolet states) flex fuel engine has an awesome performance for its category - fast responses, high mileage, I cannot stress enough how responsive this engine is.

A VERY reliable car with cheap maintenance and spare pieces. It literally never breaks unless you don't do the preventive maintenance or you collide with something.

The interior is pretty small, but this is a super compact car. Finishing materials are cheap, look cheap and feel cheap. But the shape of things is interesting. And you just have to enter a "New Fiat Uno" to feel like the Celta is an awesome car from the future.

The Chevrolet Celta is unfortunately not manufactured anymore, and could easily be updated to be a safer car. It has a nice design, much nicer than the current GM line of cars around here. It LOOKS LIKE A CAR instead of the bad joke current cars are like.

For its price tag and considering the running cost, there's nothing you could buy that beats this little guy. The combination of low weight + decent 1.0 engine makes me able to drive side by side with 1.8 or even 2.0 cars from the 90s.

2005 Chevrolet Celta 4 doors 1.4 liters gasoline from Costa Rica


It`s very fast and handy with a nice look


I really don`t like the dash desing

I would like to have a better rear bumper design, much wider to cover the back tires to avoid get the bumper dirty.

General Comments:

I love the car, is my first brand new car and i`m very happy with it.

I strongly recommended to, this is a very powerful small car; it`s fast,beatiful and economic to drive.

The thing I really don`t like is the thin tires (165), as soon as possible I going to buy new tires and sport wheels and that`s it i`m ready to beat any expensive race car.

2003 Chevrolet Celta 1.0 cc from Guatemala


Chevrolet Celta A/C does not work


The A/C of my Chevrolet Celta really sucks. I have being forced to send my car 14 times to repair it. The worst part is that I've sent it to the dealer's workshop those 14 times. I really don't understand how is this posible! General Motors have not said anything about it, eventhough they know about the problem. It is very sad that I live in a place like Guatemala, Central America, because none of this would be happening to me if I were living in U.S.A. Furthermore, it is not posible to have a new car with such problems.

It's not true that if you were living in USA you wouldn't have such a problem... I live here and is the same or ever worst... so relax!

Hey amigo, relax I live in the US and have had to put up with the same kind of problems, at different dealers (Ford-Toyota and GM). So relax and enjoy life. Buena Suerte.

Guys for those who doesn't know in U.S. it's a law that if the car its back to the dealer 3 times for the same problem they have to refund your money or give you a new one. Whatever what you says about Central America its true. TOO BAD, but its true, 3rd world countries!!! and I m from C.A.

I have a Celta with A/A and is okay!!! I´m very happy. The car is wonderful. I live in South America.

I have a Celta (Suzuki Fun) in Argentina and the A. C works perfectly.

I agree totally with the first comment. I am also having problems with my Chevy Celta a/c. Within 6 months my a/c stop working and when I took it to the dealership they did a temporary fix (July2006) and they are yet to correct the problem. My Problem with the air condition is the blower motor.

HI! I have a Chevy celta too, My a/c is not working after having this car for 4 year so in 2006 a/c stop working I bought different part for it, but still doesn't work. But now I know what is my problem. The vaporator is not working. Beside that I didn't have any other problem with this car. This is my first brand new car and I'm very happy with it. No a/c, but it still running any where I want to go. M.T. from Aruba.

Searching for a fuel pump for a 2003 Celta. Can anyone help???

2003 Chevrolet Celta 1.0 from Costa Rica


Great sub-compact vehicle


Nothing has gone wrong with my Celta.

General Comments:

Very economical vehicle, initial price is very good.

Excellent value buy.

Great fuel economy.

Simple engine, easy to service.

Good handling, with wider tires the grip on wet terrain is very good, stock tires are a bit narrow and compromise a little bit the grip on wet roads.

Nice looks.

2003 Chevrolet Celta VHC Hatch 4 door 1.0 VHC petrol from Brazil


Great first car!


I bought this car in January, don't you think it's too early to have a problem?

General Comments:

For a first car it's great!

It has to taught me how to drive good.

The Celta is a very good economical car.

The fuel consumption, is about 12 Km/L in the city and 15 Km/L on the highway.

The 1.0 VHC engine it's the most powerful 1.0 8 valve engine of the class.

The handling is good at dry track, but on wet tracks the car has a certain tendency to slide, because the tires are too thin.

My only complaint with this car is the back seat: it's too small to accommodate two adults.

The boot size is average, but for a single guy like me the size is very good.
