1986 Chevrolet Sprint Hatchback 1.0 L 3-cylinder from North America
A great bargain in every way
At 60,000 miles I had to replace the air conditioner drier and humidifier.
At 170,000 miles I replaced the timing belt, all engine gaskets, distributor and solenoid.
The silver paint, like all GM silver paint I have experienced, has faded quickly even though carefully maintained.
Interior materials are cheap, as one might expect with a car that, fully loaded with all options available in 1986, listed at $7800.
This has been a great little car. It has been extremely dependable, gets superb gas mileage (40-43) and still manages to surprise people leaving red lights (not a speedster, but very nimble for a car with only 48 horsepower).
With 178,000 miles on it, it still runs and drives great.
With gas prices what they are, I'm still very happy with it as a "work car".
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
