#1 of 3 2000 Chevrolet Prizm RPMs
Sep 14, 2013 (3:22 pm)
Hello. I'm looking to buy a 2000 Chevy Prizm off of Craigslist. I just took it for a test drive and have a question about the RPMs. I'm no car expert, and have driven the same car (2000 Chevy Cavalier) for many years. When driving the Prizm, the RPMs when driving 60-70mph ran about 3000-3500RPM, where my Cavalier will shift, bringing it down to around 2400 or so. Does this seem high, or am I just comparing apples to oranges since they are different vehicles.
Thanks for any advice!

hello, the Chevy Prizm is basically a toyota corolla 2000 "rebadge" .. you must have test drived the 3 matic instead of the 4 matic transmission.. i currently have the 3matic whic the rpm is at 3000 rpm range when driven around 60mph and above which is normal but affects the mileage a little bit compare to a 4matic transmission drive....
