Looks can be deceiving
A/C leak in high side service port.
Stock tires/rims could not handle enough weight for my taste.
I bought this car from my father, who took over the payments for my sister who went into the Army. I needed a new car, so I ended up buying this one.
At first look, this car is small. I did not even think I was going to fit into it. To my surprise I don't have much trouble getting comfortable in my little Metro. I take weekly trips to Miami with three of my large friends in the car, and my little beauty has no problem carrying over a 1000 lbs of human load, and tools.
This car is a dream to work on! Everything is in it's place (you have to love America vehicles!!).
At first I was not too happy with the idea of a "Suzuki "engine, but this engine has a really nice design to it.
I get great gas mileage, alone with some pretty good power! I have had my car well over the analog gauges max (into the hundreds on my digital gauge)
Some problems: I don't like the idea of only having a three gauge set up (Fuel/temp/speed), but atleast there are some good after market kits. I don't like the idea of the inlet fuel filler neck filter, I would rather it be an inline filter, but it's not hard to get to, so I don't mind it too much.
In all this is a great car! It's mainly a Chevy, except for the Engine, and transaxle, but atleast it is built to GM spec's (none of that mixed steel frame/body crap from Japan!)
It will last you forever. I work in the automotive field, so I know a good vehicle when I work on it. If you want a car to grow old with, then this might be your car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
