1994 Chevrolet Corsica 3.1 V6 from North America
A very good investment, it is still my daily driver today
In the whole 15 years I have had this car, I have only had to replace stuff that has just gone out due to age.
Oil change every 3,000 to 4,000 miles.
Tires every 30,000 to 40,000 miles.
Battery at 68,322, 149,239, and at 225,023 miles.
Water pump at 87,458 and again at 232,755 miles.
Drive belt at 92,884 and 188,910 miles.
Alternator at 166,993 miles.
Transmission at 195,635 miles (the most expensive fix for the car after 10 years of purchase)
I love this car!
It always starts and goes.
Served me well for 15 years.
Pretty quick car.
Gets up to 80 mph really quick.
Good gas mileage for a V6 (average 27 mpg).
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Wow, I wish they still made those things. I had a Celebrity model with the same engine when I was younger and experienced extreme reliability in the face of extreme abuse. Now my '99 Chevy Lumina with the latest (last) version of GM's 3.1 V6 has what they call "piston slap" since about 68k miles and eventually it will probably fail, and it's not just my car that has it.. ALL the 3.1 "3100" engines from the late 90's - early 2000's do this.
It's too bad GM quit making the OLD 2.8 and 3.1 pushrod engines and ruined the design to cut costs!
