The Geo Prizm is a very solid commuter car
We had to replace the starter at 60,000 miles.
The fuel pump blew at 80,000 miles.
The fan switch tends to break off if not turned carefully.
This little car has just been awesome. Very impressive MPG, good acceleration and breaking, the motor has always ran good and strong. We are very pleased with this vehicle for the price.
On another note, the Prizm is practically invincible. This car has been ran through potholes and over speed bumps at speeds exceeding 40 mph. It has been in a rear-end collision (on the receiving end), and backed in to a wall; still runs like new.
This is a great pick for a first car or anyone needing reliable transportation. Don't believe me? See what consumer reports has to say.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
