Buy the 6 cylinder!
For the first couple of years that I owned the car, it just required routine maintenance: alternator, muffler, brakes, tires, oil changes, etc...
This past year, however, everything seems to be falling apart! I have replaced the water pump, ignition module, oil pan, intermediate exhaust pipe, spark plugs, wires, and had a complete brake job done. Despite all these things, the car starts hard and stalls a lot. It seems like every time I bring it in for repairs, it costs an average of $300-400 to repair. Because of this, I am selling it. I suspect that the head gasket is failing now as well.
I guess I can't complain too much because I had the car for over four years, bought used. It saved me car payments!
One thing that I have read about--I think the 6 cylinder would be a better deal with the Corsica. A friend at work also owns a 4 cylinder like mine (even though it's a 1996) and she has been having a lot of problems with the engine lately. She has less than 80,000 miles on her car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
