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

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.

First of all the car was inexpensive to purchase. I'm not certain that they produce this car anymore and it's a shame because it's a good, basic car for your daily commute. No it isn't fancy and not much to look at but our car is currently up to 200,000 miles and it's still taking me to and from work everyday. Gas mileage on this car is great. I get 35 mpg. It also is quite strong as it has been hit by 2 deer, at different times, and was hardly damaged at all. Ok, it definitely got dented and lost 1 head light in the encounter but both times I drove away just fine and got home safely. This car has never spent much time in the shop. It had a muffler replaced and the fuel pump but nothing else. It has been well taken car of maintenance wise by having the oil changed every 3000 miles o... (more)
Story
Nothing special to relate but this car has served us very well. It will be a sad day when we have to replace it. I will miss the roll down windows. I don't know why electric windows are seen as such a plus.
Pros
BEST feature of all is 35 mpg. Second best is how sturdy it is -- hit by 2 deer and still ran fine.
Cons
Some plastic handles and knobs have broken but it is a 1995 car. The back seats don't fold down to expand the trunk which was annoying at times.
