A Good And Dependable Sporty Chevy Coupe. — Own this sporty coupe almost 16 years and counting...without much of maintenance. The odometer is now around 125,000 mile. The 3rd year of ownership had the original fuel pump replaced at a dealer and was told it's a common problem (it sometimes cause idle problem). The new model fuel pump was put in place of the original one and lasts until now. Gas mileage is rather good until these days for OHV engine without variable valve timing assisted. The bottom line is...this car is reliable and dependable (once the common known problem was corrected), good road holding (better than I thought it would be) especially in heavy rain. In a windy day the car is impressively stable. Acceleration is quite impressive in spite of being shy of horsepower (with relatively high torque for the normal engine) and still get good gas mileage. The other thing is the body painting is good quality and still shinny (bright red).

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good looking body style, good gas mileage, dependable and fun to drive coupe especially for long trips.

Cons: Weight should be a little lighter.
