1992 Geo Prizm Sedan 4dr Sedan


Review

I inherited my prizm for my high school graduation 5 years ago. It now has 230K miles on it and still runs great! I think the frame of the car will fall apart before it stops running - It has lots of rust from being outside, I've gone through 3 door handles, and the radio is questionable - but the engine is still in great shape! The low miles are great and it is truly a dependable car!

Review

I just sold my "baby." This Geo was a very dependable car and very comfortable. The main problem I had with it was the door handles would break. I replaced the front door handle twice and one back door handle. I've had this car since 1995 and just sold it because I purchased a 2009 Toyota Corolla. My Geo had 70,000 miles and is still in good condition. Sold it to my brother-in- law who wanted a vehicle that was easy on gas. He has two SUVs that are gas guzzlers. I hope he has as good luck as I've had with my Geo.


Best Features

Small size. I just felt really comfortable in this vehicle.


Worst Features

Air bags would make this vehicle safer.

Review

A wonderful little car. If you're
looking for power, look elsewhere.
This is a fun, economical little car.
The toyota seats are snug. I'll try to
drive mine until it rusts apart. The
only semi-complaint is with the body.
One door has a baseball-size spot
rusted through. The 5 spd manual is
peppy and fun to drive; however,
reverse is sometimes hard to find. An
excellent economy car.


Best Features

Economy. Fun to drive. Easy to park.


Worst Features

A better antenna. A 60-40 split folding rear seat. A better horn (might fix by myself).

Review

This car has been unbelieveable. I
purchased it for $800 in 2/03 with
127k. It now has 144k and runs like a
top. I have to add oil every now and
then and the high fan speed is not
working but besides that this car has
been a money saver. I want to
purchase so many new cars but with no
monthly payment and such low insurance
I think I may run it till it dies.


Best Features

Feels like a go-cart. That's about it.


Worst Features

Seat belts are a nightmare.

Review

This is the only reliable car we have
ever owned. We survived owning 2
Chevettes, a Jetta, a Lumina, a
Cavalier, a Plymouth Voyager and
currently a Ford Windstar. Every one
of them had some major defect or
annoyance that cost a ton of money to
repair. This Prizm owes us nothing.


Best Features

It has plenty of zip and it is fun to drive. It is small and simple to park!


Worst Features

The locks always freeze up when it is cold.
