1991 Geo Storm GSi 1.6 DOHC from North America
Electronic control module.
Struts @ 30k.
4 exhaust systems.
This vehicle stalls out when the A/C unit is on. Only when slowing down to a stop, it cuts off the motor.
The control module malfunctioned 2 weeks after purchase. It was towed & repaired.
The struts were leaking & needed to be changed.
The exhaust system according to several repair shops is a poor design. The muffler is positioned across the rear undercarriage All the sand, salt, & debris make contact with the muffler and cause it to rot out.
This vehicle stalls out when the A/C is on and you slow the vehicle down to a stop. This is our spare vehicle so we live with it.
We have maintained this vehicle & it has treated us well.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

After reviewing the Geo Storm websites extensively I am learning a few things about this car that a lot of people don't know. First of all the car was made by Isuzu for GM/Chevrolet, it is rumored that the Geo Storm was outselling Chevy's line of cars so GM who has a controlling interest in Isuzu, ordered them to quit production. GM made the Engine Control Module, and the Manifold, these are parts that are faulty on every Geo Storm out there. Nearly every Geo Storm owner has problems with the ECU and has to replace the exhaust manifold. That is unfortunate. Search the web for Geo Storm Owner sites, and Isuzu Web pages to find out more about this awesome little car.

Just thought I would let everyone know that I was having the same problem with my Geo stalling after I drove it, and it would heat up and would die. I had the ECU replaced, and it seemed to do the trick.
