1991 Geo Prizm 1.6 EFI 4 cylinder from North America
Great car for the college student on a budget
Replaced two batteries.
Front axle joints went out at 190000 miles.
Headliner came down at about 180000 miles.
Door handle broke on the interior.
Shift lock override button must be pushed to shift out of park.
Overall, the car is remarkably reliable.
It's never left me stranded.
It handles great.
Take off is a little sluggish, but very quick after initial take off.
Great on gas mileage.
I find the interior to be very comfortable, especially the front seats.
The interior of the car is a little small, but overall, no complaints.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

My parents purchased a new 1991 Geo Prizm and I subsequently noticed that the lights of on-coming cars were diffuse during night travel. I also noticed that street light were diffuse. I have a Ford Ranger and this phenomenon is not observed on my truck. I believe there is a delamination problem with the windshield on my folk's Prizm. I went to Martin's Cheverolet in Reedley, California a few years back and they gave me the brush-off. Recently Martin's has called my mom seeking to drum up some business. I advised her to avoid using this dealer until the offending windshield is replaced with a non-diffusing one. I suspect a manufacturer defect is the cause of the problem windshield and it should have been replaced at no cost to my folks.
