1994 Geo Prizm Base 1.6 liter
Should be a kid's first car
Ran out of engine coolant, and the reservoir tank started blowing steam. But I filled her up the next day, and haven't had a problem yet with it.
My first car, and I mainly bought it because it's a stick, and when I test drove it, it made my friend's Subaru Loyale look like a slug.
Raced a Ford Focus a couple of weeks ago and won.
Not the most exciting car to look at, but if you're driving it you feel unstoppable, because if you need the car to move, it will move.
I love it to death, and the only reason I want to get rid of it is because of the lack of after market parts for this car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I don't believe the Geo Prizm was ever intended for the race track, this review is useless.

The review IS useless, but then, so is the reviewer.

Absolutely. This is a cheap economy car that runs well and doesn't die. The person who wrote this is most likely a teenager who wanted to put a fart can and an intake on his sub 100HP car. Doubt this car would beat a Focus, and if it did, it's because the Focus didn't know it was racing.
Short version: Don't buy this car if you want to go fast. Buy it if you want to get around cheaply and reliably.

The smaller Focus engine has less power than the 1.8 liter Prizm engine, but not sure how the 1.6 liter Prizm would compare. Just thinking maybe it was the smaller engine Focus. The big Focus engine would be comparable to most powerful Prizms in HP.
