Possibly the perfect economy car


Had no problems at all with the car for the 18 months that I owned it.

General Comments:

I loved my Metro. It got mad gas mileage and performed perfectly adequately for my needs. Insurance and maintenance cost next to nothing. I took it on multiple road trips through the Rockies and Sierra Nevadas; it never faltered once. I've owned some 20 cars since then and have been kicking myself ever since for getting rid of it.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

There wasnt a 1987 Geo Metro. The Geo brand didn't come into the market until 1989. However in 1987 Chevrolet did have a Sprint model with metro being a trim level.
