    Great Car For The Price — This has been a very reliable vehicle. It gets me where I need to go (which is ~200 miles/day) and does so very economically. While it isn't the fastest thing out there, it has decent pick-up and go. Furthermore, it has a rear spoiler, which makes it look surprisingly sporty. I care pool with 3 fairly large gentlemen, and even going up and over the pass, we can pass most other cars! Braking and handling are very good, steering quite responsive, helping you to maintain control is nearly every situation. It is enjoyable to drive, and is quite comfortable. I currently have 142,000 miles on it, and it doesn't use any oil. About the only thing I've had to do (other than normal maintenance) is replace both drive axles and the rear shocks.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Very affordable, good gas mileage, low maintenance costs, sporty looks

    Cons: Somewhat under powered, engine a little noisy.

    It's A Really Good Car To Drive. You Can Go To Any Place, Feel Comfortable In It. — This car is really fun to drive, very comfortable, roomy, safe, and all in controll driving it. It gets great MPG. I like that too. It spends almost no gasoline compare to my other car, a jeep I have. I know that Chevrolet is my favorite car make, I will never choose another.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: I really like the car, how fast and easy it runs. You just press on gas one time, and it runs like by itself, just to apply brake then. My boyfriend fixed all the problems the car had. He took care of brakes, wheel bearing, tires, wheels, polished the whole car. So it's beautiful, shines like a mirror, and it's just a pleasure to drive the car and there is no any noise coming out of the car. The oil is also new. It's very comfortable to drive.
    Then the AC works so good that I get frozen every while driving.
    I do really like Chevrolet as make.

    Cons: Negative? It runs too fast, very easy and smooth running car.

    This Car Is Good But Not The Best. — not the greatest, gets good gas mileage tho. the fuel filter costs 80$ and you have to get it from the dealership which is totally lame. the car is fun to drive if your at a good altitude to pick up speed.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: family car

    Cons: bad suspension, good breaking, not quick.

    Chevy Classic — This car drives well and has decent "pop" for a four cylinder gas milage machine. Unlike some gas milage cars, this one has plenty of interior room for friends and family. It also comes with many "power" fetures at an affordable price.

    Pros: decent milage while still being a useful family vehicle

    Cons: it is not super fast

    Can't Beat The (used) Price. — Good mileage, 28 plus mpg. Very good highway ride. Fit and finish are good at this time. Handling is much better with 34psi front and 36psi rear, but this does decrease the ride comfort a bit.

    Great Car For The Price — I have owned my 05 Classic for about a year and a half now. It only has 45k miles on it now, started out with 13k, so i havent needed to do any repairs on it, just regular maintenance. For the price i payed, i really think its the best midsize sedan i could have got. The only two complaints i could make are that its hard to find aftermarket parts specifically for this model, and that the 2.2L 4cyl motor is slightly underpowered compared to the Malibu it is based off of that had a V6.

    Compact And Good City Gas Mileage — Bought this car at San Rafael Chevrolet for 12000. Great city handling and big trunk space. Good for small city parking and great city gas mileage. High interior ceiling for my roommate but small back interior space for leg room.

    Vehicle Was A Good Buy. — I was looking for a sturdy vehicle with good fuel economy. It's 4-cyc engine gets more than 30 mpg. Acceleration is about right for this engine type, but I was more interested in fuel economy on the highway. The vehicle was at 35,000 miles when I purchased it; it is now at 170,000 miles. I have done the front brakes, once and replaced a few sensors with nusaince warnings. There have been no major repairs required so far. For the most part, it goes to the shop for a sticker or oil change. At about 180,000 miles, a sensor on the transaxle went bad and affected the operation of the transaxle. Rather than break down the existing transmission to swap the sensor with the risk of another of the four sensors failing, the shop found a used, but fairly new, tranaxle at a cost of about $1700. The vehicle is still running well at 200,000 miles.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Good fuel economy, runs great.

    Cons: Don't like ABS brakes.
