I had to replace the battery.

General Comments:

I bought this car from a Auto parts store that was going out of business, they used it for deliverys. It had about 77,000 miles when I got it, I've been using it for long trips to save on gas, now it has 102,000 miles I must say that I am shocked that this car has been so durable. The guy at the Chevy dealership said that he thought that I should get another 100,000 easy cause the engine isn't even beginning to use oil yet.

I just turned sixteen and for my birth day my dad bought me a 96 Geo metro LSi it is a great little car for old and young people. I love it and so do my friends actually my neighbor owns four himself. one for him one for his wife and each of his two kids have one. They are great cars and I would recommend them to any one looking for something that is great on gas. Plus you get a lot of stares all though they aren't always for good reasons!
