1990 Geo Prizm Hatchback 4 cylinder from North America
A great car for someone who is need of an economically sound and mechanically sound car
This has been a great car, mechanically sound. It's the small stuff that gets expensive.
I have replaced headlights on both sides 3 times.
The CV joints needed replacing, but not until about 120,000 miles.
The interior has given me problems, things breaking off or just falling off.
The driver's window mechanism refuses to work, have replaced it 2 times at least and had to have the window put back on track several more times.
The only reason it is sitting now is that the rack and pinion is out of it.
The car handles great, I was very impressed with the steering and cornering abilities. Driving it was a dream, and the suspension was so firm, you never felt a bump.
I was in my car for over 100,000 miles in the first 4 years and it was super comfortable. The seats are great. I do need to replace my driver's seat now though, it has a hole that rips my clothing.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
