too small and needs a bit more power

Great Small Car — This was an excellent car..great on gas(over 32miles to the gallon) and even though it was only 105HP for the 1.8 ltr....it did have great response ....no major repairs in the 4 yrs that I owned this car...just brakes and tires...smooth leather interior, good a/c and easy sun roof operation...no troubles at all... Its basically a toyota Corolla engine...so low maintenance cost...would recommend this car to anyone to buy...had to sell because family grew bigger and we needed more space

Geo Prizm — gas mileage was pretty good for this car. it handled alright but was always having some kind of mechanical issue. it wasnt the best looking car but it wasnt ugly. for a 4 cylinder it went pretty fast and had decent acceleration
