1998 Chevrolet Metro LSi 1.3 from North America
Drivers side window won't roll up.
All other windows tight and have to be fought with to roll up or down.
Blower motor only works on high.
The car has absolutely no power.
You must run the car full throttle to get on the highway.
At 65mph, the engine is turning around 4,000 RPM's, much too high.
The car only gets about 30 miles per gallon, not 50 like everyone says.
All four doors appear to be buckling in the middle, the car has never been in any kind of accident.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I hope you realize that the LSI has a 4 cyl engine. Combining this with an automatic loses a lot of mpg.
The folks that get 50 mpg are the base model with a 3 cyl engine.

That's right; 993 cc 3 cylinder with 5 speed manual transmission. I think Chevy quit using the 3 cylinder in 1998, and some 1997 models still had the 3 cylinder. Everyone wanted more power, but not me. You got it, and now mpg has decreased.
