1994 Geo Prizm LSi 1.6 from North America
Perfect car for students and people that travel long distances
I needed to replace the clutch at 195,000 miles. ($550)
The rear passenger side door will not open. This happened at about 210,000 miles.
The starter is now going. My brother is a mechanic and with a phone consultation with me he believes it is probably just the starter solenoid. The engine started to be inconsistent in turning over at about 215,000 miles, I have yet to replace the starter solenoid as the car will start after 2-3 cranks.
I love this car!
The gas mileage is great (35-40mpg).
It costs very little to maintain. As you can see from the previous section, all of the parts that have needed to be replaced have happened at a very high mileage.
I am going to drive this car until it refuses to go any farther!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Yeah, I am going to do the same. I love my Prizm. We have this special bond... kinda sad though. Washed regularly and I think I talk to it and hug it when I put crappy Arco gas in it because of the prices right now, so I apologize and it is a great car, and I love everything about. I like the body style of the 94 Prism over the 94 Corolla.

To the above poster, don't ghetto up your Prizm. Adding all that stuff on it is going to heavily change the factory specs like wind resistance and weight etc etc and then there goes your reliability. Every other person out there makes the same mistake with their Civic...
