I Love My Little Chevy Sprint And I Would Never Pass It Up And Plan To Keep It Until It Dies. — Runs forever with high kilometers. My sprint has 300k on it and it runs awesome and still has no engine leaks and I have not had to repair it. So if you find one of these cars don't pass up.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fast acceleration
Great handling
Great engine
Good on gas
Lots of leg room

Cons: Bad cargo capacity

1989 Chevrolet Sprint Review

If You Can Find One, Dont Pass Up. Reaching Over 4 Grand Or More Now, Reliable, Fun, & A Following. — I bought my streets of fire red Sprint Turbo in 1992 with 107k. It has 192k miles now (I bike commute most of the time) and is still a rocket. Amazing fuel economy, built really well. Tires are never over $20 a piece. Handles welI, very tossable and neutral. Rarely needs mechanical work. Cars just are not fun like these nowadays. It is actually pretty roomy. I had an 87 Civic at one time and this car has a much bigger back seat. I have driven many cars in my day and few have been half as fun.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Fast,MPG, Reliable, Unique, Parking, Handling

Cons: Little Choppy, Seat is falling apart, windows get tight to roll,  some parts hard to find, idling issue

1989 Chevrolet Sprint Review

1989 Chevy Sprint — Performance-not much for acceleration, but it went 110mph, braking wasn't very good if you had a lot of weight. handled nicely though. Build Quality-very high miles but it ran perfectly other than it shook a little between 55 and 70mph. Appearance-very basic, metal ceiling and floor Cost of Ownership-50mpg and cheap to maintain since it was built very well. Fun Factor-it was fun to drive, especially on back roads and dirt coarses.

Pros: cheap to own, strong little car

Cons: not good in snow or rain.
