In my driving life I have owned a Geo Metro, a Chevrolet Cavalier and have to say this is the best small car I have ever owned.

12 Mar

We've owned many other economy cars in our lifetime; VW rabbits, Ford Escorts, Geo Metro (salvaged title and was perfect.

20 Nov

Read the blogs, the automatic transmissions fails after 100,000 miles and there is NO rebuilding it.

31 Jul

Already needs its 3rd transmission at only 115k miles.

10 Jan

The CVT transmission broke and costs 4000 to fix.

5 Apr

Only because it has a turbo and another gear in the trans.

12 Feb

but it is VERY odd if youve never driven a CVT vehicle because they dont shift like a normal transmission does.

10 Nov

1.2 liter engine with CVT Transmission can't get out of it own way .

21 Oct

the chevy spark was bought to replace a smart twofor that the transmission was going out in,,, needed something cheap to drive back and forth to work.

5 Nov

Shifting sucks when taking off from a stop.

13 Sep

The 2015 Spark LT with automatic transmission really answered all the concerns that were raised with previous Spark models: better acceleration (still a tad anemic,

Only drawbacks so far is slower than normal acceleration and a little bumpier of a ride.

10 Oct

Here's the rub: acceleration was always finicky, even after the well-communicated recall work on the CVT belt tensioner was completed.

12 Feb

The engine is a small, 84HP engine without the assistance of a turbocharger or a supercharger which makes acceleration slow.

12 Mar

Take the car in and they tell us the engine is blown and needs to be replaced.

4 Jun

And only one time did it go out on me while approx 150 miles away, and I had to be towed back to the dealership--the plastic container that holds the engine fluid cracked and the fluid came out .

12 Feb

The low power output on the engine also extends into the vehicles electrical capabilities.

however the cheap price definitely shows in the interior, exterior, and engine.

22 Oct

Some wind noise as well,

9 May

The only problem I've had was the nipple on the surge tank for the radiator cracked, as we live on a private dirt road due to vibration.

23 Apr

Road noise is awful and hat to shout at each other just to have a conversation.

3 Apr

Aside from these big complaints, this car is VERY noisy.

18 May

the transmission went and that costing a total of 3200.00 with that being said, my good deal of 2500 trade in was thrown out the window.

transmission is horrible it fell twice.

Transmission has now died, par the course as seen Nationwide on 2014Chevy Sparks.

5 Apr

12 Feb

26 Sep

When slowing down, it acts like a stick shift with a bad driver (someone who is not able to use a clutch smoothly)!!

20 Jun

But, it seems the transmission has some issues and the dealer says that the way it shifts.

2 Jun

Transmission is the biggest issue.

30 Aug

Door latch bolts that have failed within 1st year of owning the car that caused the door to be unable to open.

12 Mar

There is no reason this car should have failed.

20 Oct

This can't be good for carbon buildup in the engine and am expecting the engine to fail before long.

18 Apr

Spark got repoed after tranny failed and we quit making payments.

31 Jan

That car should of been recalled & forgotten about.

9 Dec

Poor rear suspension didnt bother me.

5 Dec

Most of those miles are on a major state highway, and the Spark is not at all uncomfortable, rough or overly bouncy.

15 Nov

Second, my spark had a weird issue where it appeared to be idling rough, dealership refused to investigate or even schedule an appointment with me.

28 Jul

I began to noticed the inconvenience of having a small vehicle when every bump and pot hole felt harsh and loud.

5 Oct

If I hit a speed bump it feels like to me that the front end tires start to shake and the car seems to try to recover..I have the Techno Pink.

3 Oct

Car alarm randomly going off, car not wanting to start, lights flashing, anything wrong with a car, it had.

30 Aug

There have been issues with all the lights flicker on and off, including the windshield wipers, and it not starting randomly.

12 Feb

Raising/lowering the windows causes the headlights to dim.

12 Apr

The tire pressure light has been on at least twice a month since I've had it, and nobody can fix the issue.

21 Mar

I bought the car and after just 3 1/2 weeks, the "Check Engine" light came on in my new Spark while on my way home from work white smoke poured out from under the bottom of the car.

(I bought this after a VW Tiguan timing chain failed and destroyed the engine at 90k.

Yes, that little motor growls when accelerating and you have to be patient on long uphill grades.

16 Oct

The motor goes out at 50,000 miles.

5 Aug

My mechanic stated that it'd be EASY to fix any engine problem as it's laid out well, and the parts won't be expensive to replace should I have need to.

24 Aug

On the acceleration issue, there is a recall that just came out where they clean the throttle body and replace the PCV valve.

12 Jul

It only has about a 7 gallon tank so fill- ups are very cheap.

9 May

The only problem I've had was the nipple on the surge tank for the radiator cracked, as we live on a private dirt road due to vibration.

22 Mar

but then got a 2014 spark on both I had to replace the “coolant tank resivour.” Make sure you get oil changes regularly and some fuel injector cleaner.

18 Oct

Also, the price to fill up the gas tank is so cheap.

7 Nov

very small gas tank, not a lot of room behind a tall driver, hard to drive when windy out, poor acceleration

16 Oct

I would rather fill a gas tank up every 2 to 3 days and be in a reliable vehicle than only fill up once a week and he broken down.

14 Jan

It easily beats the mpg estimate of 32/38, I'm getting 40 mpg per tank without really trying!
