I had been in them several times but never owned 1 till recently. I love it, it's fun to drive and it gets a lot of looks. I live in very small community all of its own. I recently met and became friends with a guy that has a green gsi. I have a pink/purple standard. We have become the comedy act several times over the past few weeks. We park the cars beside each other and then discuss what parts we want off each others cars and how we are going to distract the other to gain access to their car. I love my GEO STORM!!

I have had the worst luck with this car. When I first bought it, it had no radio, and it did not have the climate controls, someone pulled them out. The first day I got it, it was in the shop for a spark plug being stuck in the motor. Then the exhast system had to be replaced. I was driving it one day and it died, the head block and the distibutor went on it about 4 times. Then I had no brakes or shocks those were fixed, and then my manifold went. Overall I have put in well over 1,600 dollars into that car, it was a bad investment.

I bought my Geo Storm GSI in 1994 with 11,000 miles on it and have only had to take it to the dealer once to have the timing belt replaced. I added a cat- back exhaust system and a intake cooler (K&N) and it totaly rocks. Highly recomend it for it's reliability and responsive drive. I put about 10000 mi yearly on it. 27- 32mpg.

I am the second owner of my car and it
now has over 200K miles on it. All I
have done is replace tires and oil and
spark plugs. The clutch went out once.
That was the biggest maintenance bill
for the car. It runs great to this day
and I plan on putting another 200K on it
before I retire the vehicle. It runs as
good as the day I bought it. It has
been the most cost effective purchase I
have ever made.

I have +468,000 km on the odometer and
the car is as lively as new - thanks
maybe for a helping hand from Duralube
The auto-gearbox new lasted 180,000
miles but I never changed the oil once
during that time ! There are a very few
spots of rust but the car looks great.
(1) Alternator needs servicing - make
sure you take it to a place which
specializes in them and that they give
it a 'complete' service.
(2) Many parts on a Geo Storm are
exactly the same as Toyota fuel pump and
rear wheel hub bearing assembly.
(3) Automatic gearbox goes - get your
honest mechanic to replace entire engine
with gearbox for $800.
