1986 Chevrolet Sprint Plus 1.0 from North America
Puts Ford's Festiva to SHAME
Replaced the front brakes several times and I've recently put in a new clutch, not because the old one was ready to go, it's just that I had the money so I figured I might as well.
Besides that, nothing really has went wrong with the car, I think that the alternator might be getting ready to go but I'm not sure.
I bought this car in 1990 after getting rid of my 1988 Ford Festiva which by the way is the biggest piece of JUNK ever made, I had that car only a few years and had the most problems with the engine and electricals that I've ever had with any car.
This Sprint has far outdone the Festiva, I know a neighbor of mine has a 1992 Festiva and it's only got about 88,000 miles and the engine sounds like a tractor or something and my little 3 cylinder with 174K just keeps on putting along with the 40mpg that I get even more on the highway.
Another thing you wouldn't believe is the ease this thing has on the interstate, you can go 75 or 80 and you can't even hear the little engine. This is by far the best little car I've ever owned.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
