This guy's review is all over the place. I'm paying $17,160. For my 2LT. I have driven two auto's One in Atlanta with the air running at max in 90+ degree's. Yea a little slow from the start up a hill. But once it hit 4k rpm's no problem pulling away from the car behind me while still seeing 12+ mpg. The other was in Florida for four days. On the highway seeing 45+ mpg's. I can't wait to get mine since it's a standard. I'm not crazy about the months of waiting. Downpayment was placed in September, and car is only now being shipped to dealership. Will be posting in aftermarket page once i have the car. I already have a couple of things to replace. The LED taillights from Korea I like the best and can't wait to see on the car.

I think Chevrolet's been a bit blindsided by how quickly the Sparks are selling off the lots. I know it took me about a month to finally get my car in stock, and a co-worker of mine who also bought one had to wait about three weeks. They certainly are popular! But for the low price and great amenities it offers, I'm not surprised.

I've driven my Spark on some steep hills such as in Poughkeepsie, NY, and had no problems getting around. The car does take some time to get up to speed, but once you get going, there's no problem.

When I test drove the Spark I drove both a LS Automatic and a 1LT Manual. I found the manual to be geared tall in that you have to downshift frequently. I was going 30MPH in 4th gear and the engine simply bogged down. For the auto, as long as you have some momentum, it will go up a hill fine.
