1997 Geo Prizm 4dr Sedan


Hands down, the best vehicle I have ever owned due to its reliability and cost savings. The styling remains fresh if not fresher today than some of the crap being built now. My first was a 1994 LSi lease. It, too, was flawless. I drove my '97 off the showroom floor with 3/10's of a mile on it. As of today, it has exactly 310,000 miles on it! The engine and transmission remain original as does the exhaust and most of the suspension. The fit and finish remain strong as does the interior. Not bad considering it has never been garaged. It still gets great gas mileage, burns very little oil and has no squeaks. Why this model/line was ever killed off beats me. Wake up GM, you blew it.

Best Features

Reliability, styling, comfort for the size, finish, low maintenance cost, gas mileage

Worst Features

Absolutely none. I think 310,000 miles says it all. This serves as my daily driver for business. It has never left me stranded. I plan on driving it until it dies. Hoping to hit 500,000.
