Untitled[edit]

Where was this car sold? I have seen one in Ireland, with an Irish number plate. At first I thought it was some screwy Japanese import (they're quite popular here), but then noticed it was left-hand drive. I thought it looked quite similar to the Corolla/Sprinter of the same era, which also confused the hell out of me... --Zilog Jones 23:51, 28 May 2005 (UTC)

I made an important change to this quality automobile:) Whopper 02:44, 2 January 2006 (UTC)

  • You did not. There's a difference between making good changes and vandalism. --ApolloBoy 06:11, 2 January 2006 (UTC)

Someone want to fix the edit buttons for the sections that found there way to the bottom of the page in some weard way?

Mileage[edit]

Why isn't mileage in the 'generation' boxes along the right hand side? Any car page should have mileage figures, as an aid to purchasers of used cars. Wikip rhyre (talk) 22:10, 24 November 2008 (UTC)

mpg[edit]

Also, I think a source is needed on the MPG numbers presented here - I drive a 2001 Chevy Prizm and on regular unleaded I would say I get a hair under 30 MPG city. --CoolGuyRH 21:24, 11 January 2007 (UTC)

--This depends on which transmission you have- I also have a 2001 Prizm, it's the 3 speed automatic- we average around 29 MPG, however on long road trips we do get up into the lower 30's. But if you have the 4 speed automatic then you see the 32-37 that is advertised.

--I don't know what you are talking about. I get 30 city and 37 highway on my 2000 Chevy Prizm 3-speed automatic. Which is confirmed by a Scanguage II. Check your alignment, tires, and airfilter. --Texnofobix 17:58, 31 July 2007 (UTC)

--I have a 5 speed manual version - 1999. Basic model with out any power options. It gets 36 in the "city" and 41 on the highway. Sometimes the winter is a little worse. For comparison, my wife has a 2000 Toyota Corolla - 4 speed automatic and loaded with all the options. This gets 32 in the "city" and 37 on the highway. 12:44, 26 June 2008 (EDT)

POV Problems[edit]

Several statements in this article that seem to me to stray from NPOV. I just removed the most glaring one ("Basically a perfectly good Toyota product ruined by GM parts."). More work needed?

fuel mileage[edit]

I have a 2000 prizm it is automatic w/od, I was reading the fuel mileage discussion, and wondered why there is such a large diffrence in fuel mileage. I have checked mine a couple dozen times. I average 41 miles to a gallon, If it drops to 37 or 38, we do a tuneup and it goes back up. I have never separated highway miles from regular. for example on a trip from va to Atlanta, I drove to Atlanta shopped in town drove around several days drove home and the mileage for the entire trip was 41 miles to a gallon. We have newer vehicles and are getting ready to purchase a minivan. However I live 35 miles from town and intend to have my Prizm forever (lol) it has 140,000 miles and has never gave us any trouble. It has truly been a extremely dependable and economical car. My only complaint is that the front seats could have been made more comfortable.

Parts[edit]

Are most of the parts on 1998-2002 Prizms from GM or Toyota? I know Corolla and Prizm share same engines. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Pam1855 (talkcontribs) 22:42, 16 October 2007 (UTC)


--They are Toyota. (I confused a Toyota Dealer earlier with the Computer, what a noob.) All the parts but the radio and steering wheel. --216.106.49.28 (talk) 03:03, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
