My Reliable Chevy Corsica

by
Aug 20, 2007 (A Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 40 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: GREAT fuel economy, peppy, reliable, smooth-running 4 cylinder engine, comfy seats, starts every time!
Cons: Fuel gauge a little off, needs cruise control, bad stereo system quality.
The Bottom Line: I recommend this car to anyone who is looking for reliability and inexpensive transportation. The 4 cylinder engines ARE good.

I've owned my Corsica almost a year and a half and have had no serious problems. The most serious was a new water pump and a new starter. Other parts I've replaced are serpentine belt, 2 radiator hoses, battery and rear wheel cylinder. Just keep ... read more

My 1991 Corsica...

Oct 5, 2005 (A Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: reliable, nice size, inexpensive repairs, handled well
Cons: road salt got to the frame and destroyed it. UNDERCOAT!!!
The Bottom Line: If anyone is on the fence about purchasing a used Corsica, first check the body, esp. under the front doors. If the body is good, then GO FOR IT!

I loved my Corsica. It was metallic green, with gray interior and I started driving it when I was 17. My parents bought it used in 1992 from a Rental Agency, but it was practically brand new. In 1999, my parents gave me the Corsica, since I was ... read more

"Please Sir, I want...another." - myself to the president of GM

by
Sep 7, 2002 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 30 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Excellent gas mileage, easy to maintain, reliable, I-4 engine surprisingly powerful, even when loaded.
Cons: Air conditioning unit loosens from engine block; constant, yet relatively inexpensive, maintenance.
The Bottom Line: In that mine has over 235,000 miles on it, and without ever having rebuilt the engine or transmission, would that its name were..."Christine."

My father bought this, a "program" of 16K miles, within a year of its manufacture. I took it over after his having placed approximately 100-130K miles upon it, and have driven and maintained it ever since. I've had to replace the radiator, ... read more

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: This car will surprise you!
Cons: It's a four door.
The Bottom Line: I would recommend this car to anyone that wanted a reliable car with great gas mileage.

In 1999, I wrecked my first car and totalled it. When I got my settlement from the accident, I started looking for another car I could pay for with cash and not have any payments. My dad knew a car dealer in my hometown. When we went to see him, ... read more

Best first car in 2001

by
Aug 8, 2001 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 40 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: It has good pick-up speed. Powerful V6. Roomy in front. Excellent factor speakers.
Cons: The paint job is dull. It makes a little rattling noise at 130k/h
The Bottom Line: I believe for a first car that it is cheap. It is a powerful car. If it has lasted to 2001, it will last another 10 years.

I got this car as a gift. When I herd it was a Corsica, I thought "Oh Great!" but when I drove it I was surprised. It drives better than my husbands 95 Civic. I only had a problem with the module. The person who washed my engine got water on it, which ... read more

Don't buy a corsica

by
Aug 4, 2001 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 10 Recommended: No 

Pros: It's a Car
Cons: Almost everything about it
The Bottom Line: Unless you are forced to drive this car, don't buy it. At least get a ten year old foreign car or something like that. My corsica was not dependable.

You may think that you are getting a descent, cheap car when purchasing a chevy corsica, but think again, you will end up putting a lot of money into it. My dad bought a 1991 chevy Corsica in 1992 for about 11,000 dollars. Within a year he wanted to ... read more

Pros: super comfortable interior, great placement of controls,suprisingly spacious,*** DIRT CHEAP***!

The Bottom Line: Avoid them like the plague!!!

I purchased this car used last year(October 2000). At first I really liked the car,despite the dorky first impression, and the paint beginning to flake, because it ran decently(at first),had plenty of power, had a very comfortable interior(despite cheap ... read more

This car has served me well.

by
Apr 12, 2001 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 30 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Great instrument layout. Adequate horsepower. Decent MPG. Safe.
Cons: Sluggish transmission. Inaccurate fuel gauge. Electrical problems.
The Bottom Line: I would only buy a corsica now if it was an LT, if it had under 120K miles, and if it was under $3000.00.

I bought this car for $2,700 in 1998 with 135,000 miles on it. Good: The LT's 3.1L V6 provides enough power to get you where you're going and has been pretty reliable. At 6'1" I can fit pretty comfortably in this car. It may not seem ... read more

Author's Product Rating: 30 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: anonymous looks, 3.1-liter V6 is a good one, plush interior, nice ride, surprising engine note
Cons: anonymous looks, heavy steering, uncommunicative with the road

Ok, I know, not alot of people hold the lowly Chevy Corsica in very high esteem. After all, it's just one of those cars most commonly found with middle-aged (or older) ladies behind the wheel to get back and forth to their secratorial jobs....I too, ... read more

I bought my 1991 Corsica in 1999. When i bought it, it only had 54,000 miles on it. That's one of the main reasons i bought it. The other being that the car i had, 1986 Ford Escort, blowed goats. My Corsica has the awesome 3.1 liter, V6 ... read more

Pros: Cheap price, gas mileage
Cons: Everything else, literally

I am writing this review for one reason--to warn you away from the 4 cylinder 1991 Chevrolet Corsica LT. This car completely died at 105,000 miles. I know that they don't make this car anymore, but I am hoping to dissuade anyone who is looking for one ... read more

Does what you need it to

by
Jul 4, 2000 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Good performance even with automatic, affordable to repair, good overall car
Cons: Original paint seemed lousy, less than perfect brakes, some interior materials seem slightly 'cheap'

My Corsica was bought as a GM 'Program Car' in Feb '92 with about 4k on the odometer. The car does a pretty good job of combining form and function. The 3.1L 60 degree V6 is strong and is a good stand alone power plant or base for performance add-ons. ... read more

Pros: Will be very good to you if you take care of your cars
Cons: None

Even before becoming a GM employee, I loved GM cars and always thought that GM cars were superior in quality to the other choices. I had purchased a 1989 Corsica before and it was really good to me. I had no car problems and no car repairs on the '89. ... read more

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Reliable, Sturdy, Fast, Powerful
Cons: L body line was cut in 1996, due to new side impact laws/requirements for 1997
The Bottom Line: Unbelievably reliable. It won't disappoint.

I first wrote this review more than a year ago. So I thought I'd update it. I have a 1991 Corsica LT 3.1 V6 with the 3 speed auto. My dad bought her off the lot in November of 91. She now has 125,000 miles. Here's what has ... read more

Pros: Dirt Cheap, Durable 4 Cylinder Engine
Cons: Nerdy Image, Poor Materials and Build

The Chevrolet Corsica was certainly a dreadful car. I remember several years ago when my father was looking for a car to replace my mother's 1987 Dodge Omni, which despite being a rather homely car with a bad reputation, served my parents quite well. My ... read more

Pros: Feel very safe, heavy car, excellent climate settings
Cons: automatic door locks sometimes jams and won't open, seat cushions are lean could be a bit plushier for longevity

I purchased my 1991 Chevy Corsica 6 cylinder directly from the dealer. I did intensive research and felt the car fit my needs, comfort, and the necessary speed to get onto the highway. It still drives just like it did off the lot even with ... read more

We bought our 1st Corsica at a auto auction it was 1989 and we bought it in 1993. We only paid 1,000 for it so we really expected we would have to put money into it. Well, this car ran and it ran and it was perfect! After a couple years as the miles ... read more
