Needs overdrive big time



General Comments:

I can only say that the only thing that bothers me is the noise the engine makes because there is no overdrive on the automatic transmission, on long trips this can start to really get on your nerves. Besides that I love the car.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I have 1998 metro with a 3 cylinder engine with a five speed manual trans. It is 100% stock. What rpm is the engine turning at 60 mph in 4th gear and in fifth gear. Thanks.
