Chevrolet Corsica Reviews
I buaght my 1991 Chevrolet Corsica in 1999. I have not had any trouble or problem with the car since I have owned it. I am still driveing it in 2013. The only design problem of the engine was the tendacy for the engine head to warp over time. Thus causeing the engine to leak anti freeze from the engine head. A replaced head and related parts took care of it. A well worth the money repair. The car has been a northern IL auto since I buaght it. the body and paint lasted in almost perfect condition up until around 2008. There are a few area's where corosion took hold. The lift point's. The rear wheel well's, inner and outer. And of course the rear fender lip's. The lower front body / door area. The engine's economy and ease of maintenance has been excellent. The interior and front seats are very well designed and have lasted in very good condition. I have driveing this car throughout the united state and back in comfort and confidence. I have removed the rear seats and everything out of the trunk for removeale of excess wieght removeal. I have kept a high quality tune up on the engine with aftermarket performance parts. The Corsica has provided me with exceptional fuel mileage and improved performance. I installed the largest performance tires that would fit onto the rim's. I will miss this car greatly when I have to retire it.

This car has been nothing but a giant headache, i bought the car with 150,000 miles on it. I have put 9,000 miles on it and between then iv'e put a little under 3,500 dollars in it. and now im having problems with the car over heating after i just put in a brand new radiator, could it be the thermostat? and also my car feels like its gonna die sometimes when i start it up and sometimes it does die after i start it and put it into gear. any answers would help! thank you!
I have a 92 Corsica with a 3.1l engine we call Tinkerbelle. I've had to replace the ignition module and CPS twice, and redo all the engine vaccumn lines (plastic lines Under hot metal, not exactly thinking GM were we?) and it has a leak i'm still trying to locate, but all thinks considered it's an ok car. I wish it had more room to work on, but I have the same complaint on most cars. For the guy in buffalo, Check your vaccumn lines, the heater controls are vaccumn acctivated, so any leak will cause them to act funny.
I have a 94 Corsica V-6, runs great with the exception of driving in the winter time. The heat does not warm up the car. It provides enough to keep the windows clear but the car warm. Also, when you have it on defrost it blows out the vents first then in goes to defrost and it alternates between the two. Any have any ideas on how to fix this?
