2000 Chevrolet Prizm Owner Comments

problem #2

Jun 012001


  • Automatic transmission
  • 25,000 miles


At 15K miles, my rear passenger window motor quit working. At 35K miles, my driver indoor "plastic" door handle completely broke off with no warning whatsoever. At 75K miles, my driver window motor quit working (I now have no way of opening my door from the inside). And at 85K, my passenger front door handle started to crack. The dealer wants to charge almost $40 a piece for the handles, each, and then $140 each to install. This is a little piece of plastic, and should not be so much. The motors are roughly $100 each to replace, plus the labor. The seatbelt sign flashes all the time, whether I am buckled in or not, and I am told the whole seat belt needs to be replaces, at another $235. Now my spark plug coils are supposedly bad, and I am loosing oil. The car has 82 miles on it when I drove it off the lot in November of 2000, and I have only had to replace the brakes 1 time. I am not hard on the car, but doubt I will purchase another Chevrolet.

problem #1

Jan 102001

Prizm 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 2,000 miles
After owning the car for just a few months, bought new, I noticed that the seat belt warning light would come on/off as it pleased. Sometimes with being belted in, it would show up, and othertimes it would be off. The repair estimate for this job at the dealership was over $300, saying they would have to replace the entire seatbelt. A bit off to me.
