I like that the car does run and it hasn't broken. The engine is ok, gas mileage is ok (not great). The car doesn't look good but it's cheap. I would not buy it if I was not low on money, so for a low budget car it's ok.
Story
I left the window open in the Florida rain and it flooded the car.
Pros
The price is ok The AC works in general. The parts are cheap
Cons
The AC has broken in the past The seats are horrible color It makes weird sounds

I got my Geo Prism 1992 with 120,120 miles. That was back in 2012, the previous owner had abused the car. But I put some love and care too it. Currently it has 207,120 miles run strong but consume oil too. I put a lot of new staff on this car, and I am finding it hard to let go. It has plenty of rust but trusty. With this car, it has made me mechanic inclined. Most of time I do all the work on my Geo Prism and it makes me happy. I swear to you I have never changed anything on this vehicle. Ok...maybe the clutch, timing belt, radiator and put new seals on the front and rear main but other than that nothing. I have never had any major work done to this car. I have kept the oil changed every 3-5 thousand miles, and it has truly been the very best car I've ever owned. I wish they were stil... (more)
Story
I drove to Rutgers University in this car. It was the first time I took a long road trip in it because I did not know how far the school was from my area. We made it there and had a great time.
Pros
It is a very great and sturdy car. We've had to replace the front strut and spring on the driver side, regular maintenance like brakes and oil changes and tune ups. The only major thing we've had to replace is recently our master cylinder went. Our mechanic is surprised our car is still up and running with all the abuse it's taken. It is very reliable in terms of not needing a lot of maintenance. The only reason I had to bring it into the shop is when I got into an accident that took off my front bumper. The mileage per gallon is also excellent, with about 20 dollars filling up a full tank... (more)
Cons
The only real flaws I have noticed with it is that the AC doesn't cool down the car at all. It only cools down the person sitting right in front of it. In a hot summer day, it makes the car unbearable to sit in because it is impossible to cool down without blasting the air conditioning for a good hour. Another problem I can see with the car is that it is quite loud on the highway and even on the local roads. Sometimes during a drive I just wish the thing would quiet down, but I think that that is it's old age showing. My other cars do not have this loudness problem and give an enjoyable sm... (more)

1997 Geo Prizm - It is a used car, but it is very fuel efficient and smart.

My car is golden. The reason I like it is that it is very small, and it is more suitable for novice drivers than for large cars. Because the size is relatively small, the car is very fuel efficient. Although my car is a Chevrolet-owned car, when it was produced, the engine was manufactured by Toyota Japan, so the engine performance was very good. Many people like good engines, but good brands are very expensive, and my car is using their technology and the engine provided. Let the performance of my car be very strong even if the year is very long.
Story
If you want to save fuel and maintenance costs, choose a Japanese engine. This car is definitely a fuel-efficient expert.
Pros
The coolest part of this car is the relatively modern interior design, which is more user-friendly, cigarette lighter and cup holder. A lot of small designs are designed to provide the best travel experience for the people at the time. For the modern interior design is too old-fashioned and deadly contrast. My car has eight cup holders. This amount of provisioning currently only appears in advanced SUVs.
Cons
For me, the biggest regret is that the car has been discontinued and some special parts are difficult to buy. At the same time, due to the long-term reasons and mileage, I have to consider buying a new model. This is my only regret for the car. I want to buy the same paragraph but it is no longer produced.
