If your car that is in the shop is a nice one, it would partially explain why you perceive a bad driving experience with the Spark.

Ever heard of East Germany's Tabrant (sp?)? It had a 2 cylinder, 2 stroke engine, IIRC.

I would not classify the Chevy Spark as a piece of junk. They are rated above average for reliability. For comparison, based on 2021 models, JD Power rates the Spark an 86, the Toyota Corolla an 85, and the Honda Civic an 82.

That doesn't change the fact that it feels like I'm riding in a tin can and driving a go-cart. I can't imagine going grocery shopping with it because the cargo area is really small unless you fold the rear seats down. It does get good gas mileage though, so I'll give it some credit.
