1998 Chevrolet Metro Std 2dr Hatchback from North America
Air Conditioner leak since car was new covered recharge of system each season. Out of warranty I was paying for recharge when dealer could not find leak. Got tired of $150 leak test and recharge so took it to car air expert who has now put in the 3rd new original part compressor that has each blown the main seal. He is frustrated, I'm constantly without air - in Florida not good. He is thinking a rebuilt compressor next. If can't get it fixed, I will have to buy another car.
Other than the air, the car has had a tie rod go out, master cylinder replaced, leaking seal on drivers door hard to fix (door not fit tight), heat fan switch on dash replaced three time. Cheap car overall to operate.
Cheap price, great gas mileage, great commuter car. Horrible on freeway and trip more than 1 hour - noisy, rough ride, no pick up -what do you want for a 3cyl 5speed that cost under $10,000 new. Fit my tight budget. Don't get in an accident - car easily totaled and I was seriously injured - little protection in this small car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
