1991 Geo Metro Convertible 1.0 from North America
Great and long lasting....
Replaced the top thanks to thieves slashing it.
Replaced the clutch.
These cars last if YOU take care of them the right way, I've never been let down by this little 2 seater, not once. It's always kept going and going and I've found through research that these cars are very, very reliable vehicles. Anyone that has had problems with these cars apparently hasn't taken very good care of the car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Same here. My girlfriend used this car for school for 3 years.
Had 1 repair for 44K miles that cost $900 (engine problem at 123K miles).
We always change the oil every 3K miles and due all the the required service on time. This car has a small 1 liter engine that runs at about 4500-5000 rpm most of the time.
You drive any car at those RPMs daily, constantly, and you better keep that oil CLEAN. or else.
We now keep it as a second car.
We have actually received several compliments on it.
Yes, this is the 2 seat 2 door convertible, not the ugly cheap looking 4 door coupe (that you couldn't pay me to drive).
This is a fun car, with a large trunk, and lots of leg room (unlike the 4 door). We have replaced it with a Saab 900 turbo convertible, but we still drive the Geo convertible a few times weekly and have no plans of ever selling it.
