Great gas mileage
I purchased the car with poor exhaust system.
I bought this little car for gas mileage to go to work and back, and have fallen in love with it. I get 52 MPG out of it in all around driving. I removed the belt for the air conditioner (don't need it here anyway), and put a free flowing exhaust system on it.
Previous to this, I drove a Ford SUV, and when I took a new job quite a distance from home, I wanted to get more that 16 MPG. I bought the GEO for $1000, and figure in gas savings alone, I will be money ahead in under 5 months. Funny thing is, I love driving it, so now my SUV sits in the driveway even on weekends! I'm making more money than I ever have, and I'm not pouring it into my car in gas, and the best part, everyone in town gives me sympathy because they figure I must be going broke because I drive this crappy little car instead of my SUV!! Haha, the jokes on them. I've never put more in the bank before!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
