Almost trouble free
I purchased the prizm new. I had never had a problem until recently. The air conditioning stopped working. I took the car to local shop. I was told it as leaking 134a coolant from the fire wall. The cost was said to be almost a thousand dollars. I then took it to a Chevrolet dealer where I was charged two hundred dollars to replace a dryer and a dryer line. The a/c stop working five days later. Around four hundred dollars and two shops later, I still cannot figure out what is wrong with the a/c.
The prizm isn't the most enjoyable car to drive. The seats are too firm and the gas pedal is poorly positioned. On the other side, it gets great fuel mileage.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
