Road Test: 2013 Chevrolet 2017 Chevy Spark LS (Automatic): 2 days ago   05:27

MotorWeek
The mini car, those smaller than a subcompact, has never gained meaningful traction in the U.S. Whether it's a lack of power, aesthetic appeal, or versatility, buyers here expect style and substance for their hard-earned dollars. But, it only took a short time with the 2013 Chevrolet Spark, for us to conclude that there is plenty of both in this ultra-compact cruiser. John Davis with the MotorWeek road test review of the 2013 Chevrolet Spark.

They're cute but I didn't care for it when I test drove one.

I traded in my 2017 Stingray, when I saw this car in real life!

I just bought a brand new 2017 Spark LS (base model) with a 5 speed manual transmission for $10,100 OUT-THE-DOOR. It's the deal of the decade for a brand new vehicle. I feel that I received far more than what I paid for. Thanks GM Korea for such a great little car! I've owned it for about 6 weeks now and have 2,500 miles on the odometer. Super fun to drive. Reminds me of my 80's Civics...a little street legal go-kart. Fun, Fun, Fun!!

I have a '14 Spark but I only average 300 miles or so on a tank.  I recently replaced the dome & license lights with LED's.  So far no warning/error messages.  I'm just a little nervous about getting the LED's for like the brake/back-up in case there's an error.  I bought the other LED's at Wal-Mart and the bulbs they had are made by Pilot Automotive.

I have a 2013 Chevrolet Spark 2 LT in the Grape Ice color and it has 42,000 miles on it now, i absolutely love the car. Im always getting 400 miles to a tank of gas, im 6,1 and i fit very comfortably in my Spark. The only things ive done to the car in the 42,000 miles, is replace one set of tires, one set of brakes all the way around, oil changes and i had to bring it in for one recall to replace the Mylink radio, other than that its been a great car. I would definitely buy another spark, however its my fun car, i also got a 2004 Mercury Grand Marquis as well.

My 2014 Spark LS is not the most luxurious car I have ever bought but it is one of the best. It has never given me a problem and has extremely low maintenance costs. I am also averaging an amazing 49.5 miles per gallon on regular. The sport gets an A-Plus for me for value.

This car is surprisingly safe, earning a Top Safety pick from the IIHS

I bought a 2015 and it's been the funnest car I've ever owned and I'm 63. I've had the windows tinted and bought a dash mat for it. It gets up to 75 MPH with no problems or strains and the air conditioner is very good. Mines the LS model in Salsa color. I've driven Her 375 miles so far and gotten gas once and still have 3/4 of a tank. I Love this little car!

My dad had one as a rental car, he said it was horrible. It drives like shit and has zero power. He took it back the following day to get a better car.

Nicer than a Fiat, that's for sure.

what the hell? they didn't say anything about its braking time.

You people don't understand that this car is made to be affordable to people like me who can't afford a prius-like vehicle. We can't all afford to buy big cars with a v6 or a v8. The fuel economy of this car is not the end of the world considering it's a city car. And to all who say it's unsafe, it's the best rated compact above any toyota, honda, kia and hyundai. Not every american wants a huge suv or a gas guzzling muscle car. This car is cheap and well made. So what if the styling is questionable. You can't tell me $15,000 is too expensive. It comes with more features on the LS model for around $14k than you would find on similar small cars. Take it for what it is and stop complaining. We poor people need a car to buy!
