The accelerator is very sensitive. Took me a few days to get used to it.
The car feels a lot bigger than it looks. The seats are comfortable. In most vehicles the "headrest" is not comfortable to rest on at all. In this vehicle I really can "rest" my head on the headrest and be comfortable. It's a very well-designed seat.
My teenagers can actually fit in the backseat with room to spare. Lots of leg room. My son was amazed at this since the car looks so small. He thought it was going to be like his friend's Camaro inside - seriously constrictive.
Visors are flimsy, doors are thin and cheap, but it's an economy car - I wasn't expecting much else. I am surprised that the dashboard isn't too bad. It seems very solid and well-crafted.
Previous owner put in a nice Kenwood CD player... but left in the stock speakers...ugh. I don't care if my music is loud, but I do want it to sound nice (I have some sound engineering experience and I'm a musician). I don't want to spend a lot of money, but a few quality speakers and a small subwoofer are definitely in the plans.
I hated... REALLY hated driving my Aerostar back and forth to work. It's a great vehicle for long trips, but it's clunky, a gas-guzzler, and it's BIG. I love cars. Not vans, trucks, or buses...cars.
The Metro is the perfect, everyday, commuter vehicle... if you're carpooling get the four-door though.
Now all I need is a '68 428 Mustang Fastback for the weekends.
