I bought this car in '95 new with 8 miles on it.
2012, still running strong.
Mind you, I have replaced the engine ($1,200, first engine went after 150,000 with normal maint.) and timing belt.
Other than normal things, I love my little purple Geo.
Easy to reach everything.
My first stick shift and best car I have ever owned.
Our oldest chil even learned how to drive in it!
It got her home WITHOUT a belt!
LOVE MY GEO!

My husband bought this car in 97. He was its second owner. I took over driving it four years ago and even when we bought a new car, I wanted to drive the Geo. But this weekend, a guy hit my car and the now its worth less than it would cost to fix it. This car has given us almost 9 years AFTER being paid off. It gets 40 mpg easily and I don't even know how to think about replacing it. In my mind, what replaces a car that was reliable even with 140k on it with NO major repairs? BUY this car, but don't get hit by someone with Safe Auto insurance!

This car won't quit. I work for FEMA and have taken it to the keys three times on the job for hurricanes work. Yeah I even did Katrina with it. I've been all over the us in this car. I have 155,000 miles on a three cyc engine. I pulled it out of the junkyard about 6 years ago and put a front bumper on when it only had 49,000 miles on the engine. One man's junk is now another man's treasure. In six years I've watched my friends buy and sell their cars, I still have my car. It might not pick up a date but that's what rentals are for. We need to keep this car around.
