1993 Chevrolet Corsica LT 3.1L from North America
A reliable friend
The original transmission is slowly going (and going slowly, I might add), but that's to be expected for a car with these kind of miles.
The front pads wear quickly, and the rear shoes grab at slow speed - probably my fault.
The front suspension suspends very little nowadays.
All repairs from previous owner include front struts and axle, starter.
I just recently purchased this car from my parents, who had owned it since 1997.
Before that it belonged to the Canadian Department of Defence.
It has been the most reliable car any of us have owned, with never a breakdown (I'm probably jinxing myself)
The next-to-gone torque converter dampens the car's once quite fast attitude. A good condition Corsica can surprise people with its speed and handling.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I drive a 1993 Corsica LT with only 80,000 miles. The 3.1 liter engine runs excellent with plenty of power, and the transmission has no problems either. However, in cold wet weather, if the doors have been locked, they freeze up badly. It took me 45 minutes this AM, just to get into the car. I use a graphite based lubricant in the lock cylinders on a regular basis with no positive results.
