1990 Geo Metro 1.0 from North America
Change the oil every 3000 miles or else!
Well I blew the engine myself one night, my husband had changed the oil but he had went somewhere and didn't tell me that he hadn't replaced the oil yet... Well I drove the car about 10 miles until I heard this awful knocking pinging sound - by this time the engine was junked. That was at 83,000 miles.
Well just a few weeks ago the car was cutting off at red lights and not wanting to crank back. Then one morning I went out to go to work and it wouldn't turn over, it wants to but just won't.
Besides this I've had nothing go wrong with the car.
This was a great little car until I killed it the first time, then after the engine was replaced it never was right again. Hmm there are a few things that seem really cheap to me like the door panels and such. I would suggest this car to anyone wanting a small runabout car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
