1996 Geo Metro LX 1 liter from North America
The Metro is a utility bargain!
The air conditioner had a leaky fill valve. The dealer repaired it with no problems.
The air conditioner control lever needed replacement. The dealer repaired it with no problems.
The water pump developed a leak at 80,000 miles. Replacement solved the problem.
I love this car. I think it's the best car I've ever owned.
I've had faster, bigger, and more expensive cars, but the Metro does what it was designed to do better than any of my other cars.
I have never felt anxious about this car breaking down or having unexpected trouble.
The car does require a different style of driving because of it's low horsepower, but once you learn how to keep the engine at the correct rpm for the conditions you'll fall in love with the car.
The car handles very well at 80 mph.
I'm 6'1 and I have plenty of legroom.
Used Metros are very inexpensive (often $1500.00 in my area) because many people are embarrassed to be seen in them, but if you consider the true utility that this car provides you can smile when you're at the light next to the Lexus and its egotistical owner.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
