Dependable car with a great engine
New alternator twice.
New rear shocks and struts (they were rattling loudly.. and it was pretty bumpy).
Black paint fading and rusting pretty bad.
Vinyl siding of seats tearing.
Fabric on ceiling falling off.
Driver door handle cracked, but still works.
Windows whistle on highway.
Trunk can be hard to open with key (have to push down on top of the trunk to turn the key).
Now needs a new muffler and total brake job, which is just way too expensive for the value of the car, so I am looking for a new car now... but hey... I can't complain... this car is 16 years old!
I have had my Geo Prizm for 5 years now, and overall it has been a very reliable car.
Alternator replaced twice, but I knew this was a common problem with Prizms.
Engine still runs top notch (basically this is a Toyota Corolla).
Pretty comfortable, and gets great gas mileage.
Recommended to someone who wants a dependable car that gets you from A to B.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
