I completely agree with the other comments above. I had a 1991 Chevy Corsica, 4 cyl automatic. It ran fantastic, and only let me down once, even then, it was 11 years old with over 150,000 miles on it. Not a bad track record. It did several passes between Eastern MA to Western NY, to Virginia, PA, you name it. I bought it with 70k miles in July 1999 for my first car, and I donated it to charity with 235k in Sept. 2004. Sadly, the underneath of the car rusted out after several New England winters. I miss that car a lot...

It's a cheap rental car. what did you expect.
Actually my dads Corsica was junk too, but it still kept going. until it hit a semi truck.

Look at the mileage it had... I agree with the others. Also, learn to shop better next time...

I own an 89 corsica and must say that in 4 years I've owned it, the only thing that ever went besides the normal wear items, (spark plugs, brakes, ROCKER PANELS, etc.) was the fuel pump, alternator and starter. The car has 327,000 ki on it and will still reach high speeds and lay rubber! The 2.8 engine in it is flawless!

You need to look after your car man. Mechanics don't live longer than flesh because flesh repairs itself.
Cars need the owner to know and hear whats wrong with it. I got my 89 2.8 6 cyl 4 door for $700 canadian. I love it.
Broke down twice after the repairs. Tuns even better than when I first bought it.
It's almost at 300,000km.
