1990 Geo Prizm LSi 1.6L DOHC from North America
A tough, fun-to-drive little workhorse
Driver side regulator keeps getting stripped.
The headliner is falling down.
The speedometer broke at 181,000 miles.
Some sort of electrical problem caused both taillights and instrument panel lights to fail.
The body is rusting quite a bit.
I had to replace drive axles a few months ago.
Had to replace alternator recently.
Although this car has not been totally maintenance free, it has held up better than any car I've ever had.
This car was my first stick shift and it is really fun to drive. Very nice low end torque and good acceleration.
I have decided to keep this car, with it's current approximately 220,000 miles, because it is simple and relatively easy to work on, and I have decided to use it to learn car repairing on.
I intend to keep it running as long as possible and will repaint it eventually. I really like this car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
