1992 Chevrolet Corsica LS from North America


Somewhat reliable and easy to drive, despite being cheaply manufactured


Paint has came off and exposed metal rusted on 10% of the car.

The gasoline meter reads 1/4 tank when car is off, reads somewhat properly when car is on.

Power locks work, but it takes several pushes of the switch for it to properly lock or unlock all doors.

The seats upholstery are generally good, with only one slight rip in drivers seat.

Transmission started slipping around 160,000 miles, only when you accelerate too much.

Fuel pump went out at 194,000 miles.

It seems like this car eats up gas quickly.

General Comments:

Has great handling.

I've gotten this car up to 120MPH, and it really didn't take me that long.

The interior is pretty comfortable.

The stock speakers sound surprisingly good.

My first car, and I've given it a severe beating and it keeps on going, aside from occasional small issues (brake pads, etc).

It's fun and very easy to drive.

I find the car to be somewhat reliable, gets me from point A to point B painlessly.

1992 Chevrolet Corsica LT 3.1 Multi Port Injection from North America


Not very reliable


Ignition Module failed twice.

Neutral switch failed.

Crankshaft Sensor failed at 130,000km.

Front head split at 180,000 km.

Impossible to keep rotors on it.

ABS failed at 120,000 km.

No power in engine.

A fair amount of electrical problems

(e.g. when the rear defogger was pressed, the car would shut off while driving.)

General Comments:

This had to be the most ridiculous vehicle I've ever owned.

I can't say it was a pleasure to have this car.

Loved it during highway driving, but once it was parked, it liked to stay parked.

Gas mileage was good.

This car is nothing like my old Pontiac

Best money I ever invested


This car seems to have constant problems with overheating. We have replaced everything from the radiator tank to the water pump. It just seems to always run on the warm side.

I have had to replace the alternator.

The seal around the windshield seems to constantly becoming loose somewhere as I have ended up with puddles of water on the floor of my vehicle more than once.

General Comments:

I bought this car for approximately $4000.00 and it has been the best money I have probably ever invested. This car as driven me from North Dakota to Arkansas and back. It has driven me from ND to Oregon and back. It has driven me from ND to Virginia on three separate occasions and on one of those trips we took a side trip from Virginia to Alabama before we came back. This is not counting the numerous trips to South Dakota and back that I have made. I have not ever had one problem on the road with this car.

Other than regular maintenance, I have not had any major problems with this car until recently where it is starting to nickel-dime me. Of course, this can probably be expected on a car that has close to 150,000 miles on it. Parts tend to wear out.

I live in ND where it gets below zero many days a week in the winter. With a block heater. Absolutely no problems with starting.

Overall a very good investment.

1992 Chevrolet Corsica LT 3.1 M.P.I. V6 from North America


A good running beater


The alternator went.

The blower motor for the heat went.

The fuel pump just went.

The power locks act up.

The ABS doesn't work.

The fuel guage isn't accurate.

General Comments:

It ran pretty good, but now it's sitting by the road for sale. It left me stranded before, but it took a hell of a beating from me.

OK car with lots of little annoying problems


The left turn signal light comes on every few minutes. If I don't flip the lever back up, the right signal light also comes on. The column then begins to smoke.

It only gets about 8-12 mpg highway.

The automatic locks neither lock nor unlock any of the doors, but the driver's.

If I don't turn the lights on immediately after turning on the car, the instrument panel lights and clock, etc. become so dim they are almost unreadable.

The passenger side door must be lifted out of the frame in order to get it open. The back driver's side door works its way open.

The washer fluid thing does not work at all and never has, although it has been "fixed" several times.

It sometimes takes up to 45 seconds for it to shift from park to drive after it is started.

The gas tank needed to be replaced because of faulty gauge, which fluctuated from empty to 3/4 tank while driving.

Fuel gauge still faulty as it never reads below 1/4 tank.

I replaced the shocks with new ones and it still feels like a roller coaster.

The anti-lock brakes come on nearly every time I brake. The entire car shudders badly every time this happens. The brakes also don't work unless I put them practically to the floor.

There's also some sort of leak that causes a puddle where the passenger's feet go.

It doesn't like to accelerate.

I have to scrape ice off the inside of the windshield.

The lights are very dim.

General Comments:

It's a fairly reliable car and only dies on me when I put it in reverse. It has always at least started, although it doesn't always stay started.

It's an OK first car, and gets you from point A to point B.

There are a lot of problems with mine though, which may not be typical of all Corsicas. I don't run it very hard and I don't have a lead foot, but it seems to be falling apart. I only spent $150 on it, and have paid for well over that in repairs. But overall it has served me well for how much I spent.

The seats are fairly comfortable and it makes for an alright ride if you don't mind its likeness to a rollercoaster. The heater and air conditioner work well, though the air conditioner has been replaced.
