1993 Geo Prizm lsi from North America
I wish I had never bought it, I heard it was like a Toyota
Door handles broke off on inside and outside back.
Speedometer doesn't work.
Engine temp gauge goes randomly on and off.
The engine runs rough - seems like it surges while driving, engine makes clunking noises.
Reverse gear makes car shimmer.
Radio light doesn't work, dome light doesn't work.
Buttons for defrost and emergency flashers are pushed in.
Just lately smell gas somewhere (maybe a hole in the tank)?
Hood didn't latch well and blew off on freeway breaking the front window, need hood and hinges.
The back end bounces and swerves when I hit bumps.
I bought this car from my girlfriend (now my ex) for $1,000 after she slid on ice and hit a concrete wall and buckled the front left quarter panel and bumper. The hood was dented and didn't latch well. The day after paying her, the hood blew off on the freeway, cracking the window and now the car is running like it isn't firing on all four cylinders. I am a disabled Vet with muscular dystrophy and have lost usage of my hands so I cannot try to fix anything myself. I'm also on a fixed, disability income and cannot afford shop prices. Can anyone suggest something to help me? Sell the car as is? I just put another $200.00 in the front brakes and rotors, as they went out last week. I have only had the car for a month, its paint and interior is good, but it seems like this car is going to be a lemon and cost me more than I can afford. It has 175,000 miles on it. Thank you.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Sorry, but you put yourself in one the stupidest situations I know.
You bought a small car (things can wear out easier because of build quality and such), that had been crashed, and had 175,000 miles on it. What were you thinking???

This is insane look at how many miles this car has on it and the age of it??? You can review something that is already tore up and worn out when you bought it and then want to blame the car??? Get real.
