My great Geo Prizm 95 LSI (automatic) just reached 300,000 trouble free miles. That is 60,000 more miles than going to the moon.
No special maintenance and no special anything. Just regular oil changes. Only replaced wearable parts such as breaks, alternator, starter, and catalytic converter once or twice. Everything else has been flawless.
Reliabily. It is a great reliable car with excellent fuel economy.
LUV LUV LUV this car!!..just turned 159,000 miles..she goes like a champ! i would DEF buy another 1 if they still made them! they NEED to bring them back iin production!!..my husband said i could have a new car-"no thank you-i luv this 1 2 much"..lol i REFUSE to give it up-trade it in-or sell it-Im taking it with me!..LOL
All!..the best is RELIABILITY! and its just a cute looking car
move the cup holder its right in front of the radio
I got this car for 2200 dollars after my (terrible) Saturn SL1 was rear ended into oblivion. I expected it would be good for a little while until I bought a "real car".
Was I wrong, it was a GREAT car. with sixteen years and nearly 180K miles, it has needed very few things. Granted, it was a one owner vehicle and the person who had it maintained it meticulously. Still, I think it is very impressive that a car that retailed for around 14K in 1985 has only had one alternator replacement, one new set of brakes, front ball joint replacements and a wheel well repair. I also opted to change the timing belt. I have my Corolla now, gave Geo to my husband but I highly recommend this car.
Reliability! This car never stranded me, not once. The A/c works greta and it has never been worked on.
Bad cup holders, really bad factory radio. Replaced it with a decent one from Best Buy.
Purchased for $2000 with 149k on it, and have driven it a lot since purchased. Consistently gets 41 - 42 mpg on highway trips. Have driven from Washington to Utah, to Oklahoma, to California, and never had a problem. Drives smooth and is super reliable.
