1988 Chevrolet Sprint 1.0 from North America
Slow but reliable
A/C went out.
Alternator went out.
All four speakers went.
Front brakes/rotors over and over.
Wheel bearings over and over.
Reverse lights switch went out.
I guess this car was OK for its time but these days even the economy cars have at least 120hp and this car with only 40hp - can't even keep up with slow traffic, it's gotten so bad now that I have to drive down back roads to get places.
Of course I'm sure this engine is tired and worn out but still i'ts always been slow. Parts are almost impossible to find these days, I was going to rebuild the engine and the parts alone were over a 1000.00 dollars. I mean sheesh, you would think that for a 7000.00 car, brand new parts wouldn't cost that much. Anyway I'm sure it's time for me to retire this toy and get a real car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Sure it's low on power, but hey, I never have to take back roads. I'm always the guy passing everyone else. The only time I find it slow is when it maxes out at 150km/h or 90m/h. But in the city this is a great car.
My friends and I call cars like these go karts cause they can fit into the smallest of openings in the road. So most days I drive, I'm driving though the traffic, going at the very least on average of 80km/h or 50mph.

It probably needs tune up. Sell it to me. Chevrolet/Geo did bad when they listened to drivers who wanted more power/less fuel mileage. Get yourself a bigger car.
