1994 Geo Prism

The Dodge dealer down the road has a Geo Prism for sale at $500. The Prism has 199966 miles on it. Do you guys think this is too many miles? Is the Prism a good candidate to be a gas saver?

Good compression test?

It's a stick. I'm not sure about the compression test. The dealership is closed on Sundays and I just looked at the web site today and found the car.

I would say buy it. It's a toyota corolla (if you didn't know) and will last some time and can get great mileage. It might need a bit of wrenching, but still, go for it!

My daughter has a 93 Prizm 1.8 5 spd with close to 200,000 miles. Still runs strong but needs valve guide seals. Very nice car. As long as it drives OK I'd say buy it.

It seems like a pretty low-risk purchase to me. You could drive it a while and sell it for what you bought it for, it seems.

Thanks everyone. I didn't know the Prizm and Corolla were twins. Is there a website that lists all twins? Also should I request a compression check to be done at the dealership or do you think they've already done one? Why do you think the dealership is selling it for so cheap? Also with the mileage on this vehicle what type of maintenace would most likely be required?

As far as being hand with tools I think I should be ok. I'm a craftsman aircraft electrician in the Air Force. Right now I'm training to be a radio tech. I think I could do a few repairs as long as a manual was available.
