I own a 1992 Geo Storm! I love it. I have had it for two years now. It has held up pretty well. And I enjoy the ride every time.
One thing I don't like about how the engine is built, is that the oil filter is horizontal. Which means that when you take the filter off, oil runs down your arm.
Unfortunately now that this car is ten years old. It is starting to really fall apart. In the past two months I have had to replace the transmission and I will be changing the timing belt.
But I love my little Geo. Especially the mileage and the speed. It is a great car.

I've had nothing but problems with my Geo. Althought I still love it! New engine and new clutch all in one year! Talk about expensive. But all in all Geo's rock!

I own a silver wagon-back Geo Storm. I have 130,000 miles on my storm and I love it. It's a quick little car, but I have nothing too compare it to. I've gotten it up to 115mph. Acceleration is good up to 40mph, but then it gets a little sluggish. It sounds faster than it is really going. I like how the back windows pop out and come off. Especially cruising because everyone can stick their head out the window. This car looks like a cooler version of a Honda Civic Hatchback. Because my storm is a wagon-back it has lots of head room even in the back seat. I have a friend that's 6'4" and fits comfortably. My complaints are that there are no cup holders, dashboard cracks on a daily basis, exhaust manifold cracks at least once a month, lack of after market modifications, dents just by leaning up against it, check engine light pops up about once every two months then goes away by shutting the car off, but hasn't happened in 5 months now, no HID headlights available, no clear taillights available, many other problems. I've replaced the transmission ($1450), 2 axles ($400), muffler ($145), Brake work ($240), window regulator ($140), Key Tumbler ($100), motor mount ($80), exhaust manifold (8 times) ($40-60 a pop), Battery ($45), headlight ($25), new tires ($250), wiper blade motor ($40 used), windshield washer pump ($10 universal), and much more. But all in all I think this is a pretty cool car for th $2,250 I paid for it.

I LOVE my 1992 Storm GSI. Originally purchased for $900, it was a STEAL. In the year and a half that I've owned it, I've redone the exhaust, pulled out the dents, painted the body, added a LeBra, and changed the oil. It's a 1.8 DOHC so because of its weight, its pretty quick. I love surprising people with nicer cars when I jump them off the start. I even beat a Civic in a 1/4 mile. Wow--that was crazy. I also have a 94 s-10 short box, and 1992 Eagle Talon TSI all wheel drive, turbo, so I know what speed is. I love my Torch Red Storm!!!

Right on guys I have a 1992 Geo storm and since buying it for 600 dollars all I have done to it is put exhaust on it tires and the normal stuff, all belts, oil change, spark plugs, etc. The one problem that really bothered me was the bad alignment, easily fixed with new struts and a alignment job. all I can say is that the little car is surprisingly quick and worth every penny I put into it

I have a 91 storm wagon. I paid $350.00 for it and so far I like it. it has pacesetter headers, an Apexi exaust, 2 3/4 lowering kit, and cold air intake. it is fast for what it is, and it's a fun everyday driver. but it does have its fair share of problems. the a/c doesn't work anymore, I had to put new front axils in it, the clutch is going out, but its not bad for 150000 miles and a stock clutch.

Hey guys, I have just bought a geo storm and I was wondering if the problem I'm having happens with yours also. See my car keeps telling me to upshift so I am in fifth gear at around 35 mph. Now this doesn't sound right to me, so I was wondering if it happens to you to and whether you head the light or ignore it.

I owned a Yellow 1992 Storm GSi and this car kicked butt!! I put low profile tires on it, tinted the windows, installed a great sound system, a full bra and of course a talking alarm. One day on the highway around 5:30 in the morning without another car in sight I put my foot to the floor. I took this little 4 cylinder, 1.8litre engine up to 240kph and it drove like a dream, smooth... great little car, but was not practical for a family, so I sold it to a college girl. I still miss it today... Come on GM, bulid a newer version of the storm... Kermit.

I love my storm I got it for $220 I like it, but it needs the motor rebuilt, but it still runs good, but needs work like paint and small stuff here and there.
