1994 Geo Metro from North America
It is one of the greatest, funnest, and most reliable for the money cars that is easily found!
Hurricane Wilma has taken out some of the electrical system, but my car was the only one left behind in Key West that started right away after the flooding of about 3" above the driver and passenger seat.
I have owned this car after someone gave it to me for a great deal in Hawaii, on the island of Oahu for an island car. I have replaced the hood, which the inside just popped loose on the highway, replaced the tires, and standard maintenance. Until the Hurricane last year, this car had little to no problems. The inside door handle did break, but it is a strong runner. I ran it from Long Beach, CA to Indiana to visit family upon departure of the Navy, and then from Indiana to Key West Florida a month later. It is a fun car, and although small, and blows all over the freeway, has some get up and go for a three cylinder. I would get another one, definitely, I am trying to fix the electrical problem from the seawater last Hurricane.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

What a shame they do not produce this car any more. It is what we need, because gasoline is very expensive now.

Too bad that our car manufacturers are not making inexpensive cars like the metro with 50mpg anymore. It seems they have put more emphasis on making SUV's more efficient and subcompacts (which should be the commuters choice) have fallen to the wayside. Just check your favorite manufacturer's website to see what the best mpg they have in any non-hybrid vehicle (you won't find much over 40). It seems our technology should be up to at least 70mpg by now.
