Summary:

Takes a beating and keeps going

Faults:

I had a blown head gasket, but that was my fault because I ran the car hot one day for a long time not thinking about what would happen.

Front rotors warped, once again my fault for slamming on brakes one night over and over again.

General Comments:

This was my first new car and I have to say I'm glad I went with Geo, I don't think any other car could have put up with what this one has. The best part was when I was taking the car back for repairs, the guy at Geo fixed several things that weren't covered with the extended warranty.

Right now I'm thinking of trading it in and getting something a bit larger since cars today are the size of houses.

Summary:

Great car

Faults:

Front brakes twice now.

Umm I had the A/C recharged this summer, I guess it was getting low.

General Comments:

Great sporty car, lots of power and it still gets good gas mileage.

I can't for the life of me think why they quit making this car considering it sold so well.

General Comments:

This car has been really great to me and my friends, I've driven this car cross country, no problems. This car has never stranded me anywhere. I love the teal green color. The car has plenty of Pep, I've raced quite a few things in the past and won.

Summary:

Eye catcher...

Faults:

Ignition problems mostly but it didn't cost that much to fix. The car also goes through a lot of tires.

General Comments:

Cute reliable little car. Biggest complaint - back seat head room is little or none for most people so forget about driving this around packed full of friends.

Summary:

Geo sports car

Faults:

Well not too much, there is a popping CV joint on the passenger side. The A/C keeps going out no matter what I do to it.

General Comments:

I bought this car from a Geo dealer. It was a program car I believe. It has been joy to drive and it still gets looks. The only thing that bothers me is the fact that no one can sit in that back seat, I mean even small children have to duck their heads down. The pickup speed for this car is good and if you really give it the gas it even feels kinda racey. Another thing that bothers me is the Geo rims on there, the centers of them are starting to turn an orangeish color? Besides that it's been an alright car.
