General Comments:

This is the best car I ever owned. I have had it for almost 7 years, when I got the car, since then I changed the oil about 3 or 4 times (no kidding).

I drive it every day, and I live in Tijuana where the streets are full with holes and bumps. I do not say the car is in perfect condition, but the car is running very well and the fuel economy is great.

The best of all... yesterday a guy looked at the car and ask me if I was selling it – of course I say NO, there is no car like my Geo. A couple of weeks more and I will change the oil again and sell it as 00000 miles :).

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
