I love this car!
I had to replace the starter and the alternator. The a/c never worked, and I got stuck in a snow bank and ripped out the speedometer cable.
My Chevette was a dog-ugly silver beast, but of all the cars I've owned, that one was the most resilient. I went for over six months without checking the oil. When I finally popped the hood and checked it, there wasn't a drop of oil in it. Not even a smudge. The car still ran, and ran well. After I lost the speedometer, I drove without one for a few months. When I finally replaced the cable, my mechanic was amazed that there was no grease in the transmission. At all. For four months. I drove that car to places no 4WD would go and I never had any trouble. Most people don't believe me, but the Chevette is the most indestructible car on earth.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
