Affordable and dependable not classy
The headlines wants to come down (62000 miles) but have fixed this so far with, hair gel, and still holding at 70000! Needs frequent oil changes at interstate driving.
I drive 200+ miles a day, and thus far no mechanical issues. Winds high at interstate speeds, also needs a overdrive option. Seats are basic, no arm rest. The cup holders, will only hold 12oz cans, no bottles. Does have a big cloud of smoke in early morning, cold starts, but not after a cold start! Transmission is stable. No leaks that I have discovered. I used to drive a Tahoe, and the gas was killing me. This car is not to impress anyone, but if you desire a affordable and reliable option to get from point A to point B, the Metro is your car. Has plenty of leg room in the back, for the kids. Does not have tilt, which I would love to have, nor a cruise option. No power seats, or power locks, very basic. If you are tall, and looking for leg room, steer clear.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
