1991 Geo Prizm GSi 4dr Sedan


I had this car for over 3 years until I decided that I had enough of taking it to the garage. I bought my Prism when it was 7 years old with 79,000 miles. When I got rid of it, it had 133,000 miles on it. Right away, the exhaust needed to be replaced. Then I had a stream of minor to moderate repairs to be made during the 3 year period including replacing the ignition, starter, and radiator. Also, from day one the rear view deforosters never worked. Towards the end I had a few too many minor problems. The car made far too many creaks & squeaks while on the road. I also felt too much like I was in a tin can. I guess I expected more from a Toyota twin.

Best Features

Cute styling. It was actually quite roomy for a small car. Powertrain seemed to be bullet-proof.

Worst Features

Body quality. I guess that's common with Japanese cars. On a windy day, you felt like you were about to go into orbit.
