Chevrolet Spark is a compact hatchback. It is a modification of the previously known Deo Matiz. After the merger of the two automobile concerns, most Korean Daewoo cars began to bear the Chevrolet logo. At the same time, their main features were preserved. There were few changes, and they mainly affected the interior and exterior. Also, car designs have become more reliable.
The 3rd generation Chevrolet Spark was introduced to the market in 2010. At the heart of the car is the same, but improved platform. This model has grown significantly in all directions: a spacious interior, convertible trunk and more. At the same time, the hatchback has both advantages and disadvantages. What weak points to pay special attention to during operation, we will talk further.

Weaknesses of the Chevrolet Spark since 2010
Engines are presented in the form of gasoline engines, with a volume of 1.0 and 1.2 liters. Their distinctive feature lies in the unusual sound during operation. But this is quite normal and the owner may not worry that the unit is out of order.
After a run of 100 thousand km, the service center masters recommend cleaning the idle speed controller. It will not be superfluous to perform the same procedure for the throttle position sensor.
In order for the engine to work efficiently and for a long time, it is necessary to monitor its lubricant. Replace it every 7 – 10k km. Otherwise, there will be problems with the motor. It is equally important to refuel with good gasoline. Bad fuel leads to rapid wear of spark plugs. They will need to be changed regularly. There are also problems with seals. After a while, they lose their elasticity and begin to flow.
When buying a used version, it is worth checking the compression in all cylinders. The motor should run smoothly and without jerks. Blue smoke from the exhaust pipe is unacceptable.
The manual transmission of the Chevrolet Spark is quite reliable. But still, sometimes there are operational problems. Gear shifting is fuzzy. Can make a noise at high speed.
Oil change is carried out every 50 thousand km. Its quality and interval directly affects the ease of shifting. It is better to use a good fluid and change it every 30-40 thousand km. The clutch can live up to 70 thousand km.
The automatic transmission is more reliable. With proper maintenance, it will last more than 200 thousand km.
