Lil' Red Car

1990 Geo Prizm

GAS L4

Property of goldgift Added Jun 2011 Location:

1990 GEO Prizm GSI red hatchback 5sp manual. 21+ years new and only 99,351 miles. Garage kept.

GSI is an entirely different car than the LSI. It shares the same body style but includes "the nice package" = sunroof, electric windows/doors, suspension package, 4A-GE Red Top engine = 134 HP, high revving (5500+ with no strain (likes high RPM's = don't look for power band below 3000)). The most sticky car I've driven before we got a VW Jetta (diesel). Everything factory except radio/cassette replaced w/HD radio/CD/USB, 4 new speakers, and regular maintenance. Wee bit of rust at one corner of sunroof and driver's side rear wheel well. Absolutely amazing mileage (MPG) of 30 - 45+. No less than 30MPG and have seen 45+ on the open highway with a kick-ass tank of fuel.

Took possession Dec 1989 - the year of the "stuck accelator problem". Never saw. Amazing car in terms of: superb styling, fun to drive, fuel economy, cargo space, reliability, longevity. Mentally monitored the fuel economy throughout its life. The first tank listed here is wifey driving/w/AC. Still cools (w. didn't complain) after 20+ years.

Feels a bit dated now but it is still my first choice to "take out". Nice when your secondary vehicle (MPGwise after VW diesel) still gets you 30+, fun (fun, fun, fun++++) and no payments for manyyyyyyyyyy years.

Picture coming when I can find it or take it.
