if you care nothing about performance, and only gas millage and relaiblity then get a 2000-2002 with the 2200 in it, the engines are die-hard as hell, but are slow as hell

only gets good gas millage with the 4spd auto, or 5spd manual, the 3spd auto is horrible

how do you know if you have the the 3 spd auto or the 4 spd auto??

If your shifter reads P R N D 2 1, you have a 3 spd. if it's P R N D 3 2 1 then you have a 4 spd auto.

As for the topic, I put in 5 years with a 2200. It truly is a slug, but that little guy only failed on me when it had bad spark plugs. I drove it hard, but maintained it very well. It all depends on the previous owner, but they are generally good if you dont care about mileage. See if you can find an ecotec, you will like it.
