Geo Prizm commercial

6 posts in this topic

Why don't we have a Geo forum lol?  Nice vid, good stuff.  What was the point of Geo anyways?

To sell rebadged imports. Like how the Tracker was based off Suzuki, the Metro came from I forget where, and the Prism is a Corolla. My girlfriend has one. Needs a timing belt, an a clutch, the interior knobs are broken, some of the lighst don't work (including, oddl;y enough, the highbeams light), and the driver's door is falling apart. When I go to see her this summer I'm gonna have to help her fix it.

...and the Prism is a Corolla.

And, as I recall, the Geo Prizm replaced the former mid-1980s nova, which had also been the Corolla of its day, I believe.....

The Metro was the Suzuki Swift. There was also the Geo Storm, which was the Isuzu Impulse. Early on, there was the Geo Spectrum, which was the Isuzu i-Mark, but it was only in production a couple of years.

The original point of Geo was to have lower priced cars for Chevrolet dealers to sell, but eventually, the Geos became as expensive as the Chevys, so there really wasn't any point anymore.
