1992 Geo Metro 2-dr hatchback 1.0 3 cylinder. from North America
Durable, easily maintainable and reliable
Replaced engine and MAP Sensor at 382,000 miles when MAP Sensor failed (Burned two valves, but bottom end of engine still good if oil seals are replaced).
Manual transmission has bad synchro in first gear and worn in second, but still driveable.
Drivers side seat cover has been replaced.
Fixed the heater fan switch.
Have 424,500 miles on the car and still drive it on a 184 mile round trip commute each day. Still got 47 mpg at 65 mph cruise speed on last tank, with about 5% in city miles included.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

424000 miles has got to be some sort of record for a Geo Metro.

I personally have 5 Geo Metros at this time. My other rig is a 4 wheel drive Suburban which has a 42 gallon gas tank. I find the Metros to be mechanically well built and with proper care to be well able to go several hundred thousand miles. A little "TLC" is usually all they need to remain dependable.
