Summary:

This car is a beast!

Faults:

Cracked windshield.

Dent in left side, and no side view mirror.

Recently at around 172k miles, car isn't able to drive over 50 mph. It rattles really bad, especially when gas is depressed.

Ceiling cloth has come down from moisture.

Seats are worn.

A/C and heat doesn't work and hasn't worked ever since I've owned it.

Forgot to put coolant in it and it burnt it out, but it was no big deal.

Also had a really bad leak, also easy fix.

General Comments:

This car, which I still own, is my first car that I got for $500. It's been a VERY reliable car. It's been worth ever cent. Has not had any problems except the most recent one (which is probably because the car is so old) I've listed and what it already had when I bought it (Dents, missing side mirror, and no working A/C or heat). It drives like a beast. Up until recently, it's acceleration was really good for it's age. And it has this beautiful roar to it, probably because it's a V6. The handling I think is pretty good for how old it is, and the type of car it is. It has beautiful sound (sound system wise). I don't know if that was original to car or not. It's horrible on gas though.

I would definitely recommend this car for a first cheap car. And the car after 175k miles, and 13 years of rough use STILL drives!!!

Summary:

A pretty good car for a Chevy

Faults:

Since the car has been in my family, it hasn't had a whole lot done to it.

Brakes, rotors, tires a few times.

Battery, alternator, blower motor (twice, but all three under warranty).

Stabilizer bar and stab links.

An oil pressure switch (it cost 57 bucks to get fixed).

The blinkers just stopped working on a hot day, and I think that the wires shorted out. Along with the blinker going, so did my Hi-beams, or brights.

I've noticed that a lot of Corsicas don't have their fuel bay covers... mine doesn't either, rusted off. It's not a rust bucket, but it does have substantial rust underneath her. All of this in over ten years.

This car has been abused by two 16-year old males... it's still going.

Nothing major has been done to the car.

Original tranny and engine, although the transmission does act a little weird when cruising at 55 mph, like it's not sure if it wants 3rd or 4th gear.

General Comments:

I got this car from my parents as my first car, and I still currently drive it. It's got the 3.1 V6 in it with a 4 sp automatic.

It's got a lot of pep in it for an economy car, and the gas mileage isn't too bad either; 28 tops.

I've been in a lot of cars, and I feel so comfortable driving her.

I'm 5'11 and I'm not cramped at all. The visibility around the car is excellent, making me feel really safe when I'm driving crazy.

If GM made all of their cars like this one, then they'd be Honda.

General Comments:

In general, I love my car.

At first, I did not want my mom to buy it for me because it was a '94. I wanted a newer model car.

Now, I've grown to love and appreciate it.

I will invest in my car by adding a few modifications here and there.

It has good acceleration, good brakes, nice speakers, and my interior is in pretty good shape.

The only things that needed to be done are a new paint job, and body work.

I also want to fix my interior.
