Chevrolet Spark

You don't see many cars as small as the Chevrolet Spark on American roads and for good reason. It is more than 10 inches shorter and 4 inches narrower than the typical subcompact-and 30 inches smaller than its Sonic sedan sibling. While small can mean easier parking and tighter turning radius in crowded cities or on campus, in this case it also means a lot gets left out.

No Detailed Data Available

Consumer Reports obtains its reliability data from a questionnaire that is sent to subscribers. In the questionnaire, we ask subscribers to note any problems with their cars that occurred in the past 12 months. They are asked to identify problems that they considered serious (because of cost, failure, safety, or downtime).

A typical model has about 200 to 400 samples for each model year. For some model years, typically those of older or less popular cars, we do not have a large enough sample size to provide results of statistical confidence.

There are several ways in which a savvy car buyer can still research the quality of a car.
