1996 Chevrolet Corsica 3.1L from North America
When we first bought the car we thought it was a good buy. We were wrong. There are no Child Saftey locks, the car shakes even with an alignment, we had to replace the bushings on the tires, both O2 Sensors, throttle position sensor, it needs a new alternator, has an antifreeze leak, oil leak, the engine light is on and that is for a EVAP code. The Gas cap needs to be replaced! It is now stalling on me while in park idling. I love Chevy's but will never own another Corsica!
Small, not safe, not reliable!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

The 3.1 3100 SFI indeed is plagued with intake gasket problems. However, the 2.2L version of the Corsica is very reliable, and easy to work on, although it's really sluggish with a 3-speed.
My girlfriend's 1995 Corsica is a 2.2, and is sitting at 208,000 miles, with the only repairs being a water pump, and a starter, and brake pads,
