1992 Geo Metro LSI Convertible 1.0 from North America
Economical and predictably reliable
Engine got flooded in 9 inches of water during a rainstorm 2 months after vehicle was bought in 1992 in Norfolk, Va. Winter of 1996 the engine was frozen in a solid block of ice during a snow storm in Denmark. Can't wash the engine with water or it will die on you.
Geo Metros & water don't mix at all!
Great car to own when driving in countries where gas goes for $4 - $8 a gallon!
Convertible rubber top lasts 4 years max.
Front brakes lasted 70,000 miles, rear brakes & clutch lasted 125,000 miles.
Gearbox replaced at 65,000 miles.
Car is great for city driving, highway driving, but takes forever on hilly terrain.
Car held up well on a 13,800 mile trip from Jacksonville, Florida to Prudhoe Bay, Alaska. Only had to replace a set of tires for that trip!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
