1999 Geo Metro LSI Hatchback 1.0 3 cylinder from North America
A good reliable cheap car
Headlights don't work, use daytime running lights at night.
A/C needs can of freon every 4 weeks. Has always been like this.
Blower fan works on high and sometimes on other speeds.
Bought this car from a friend for 1400.00. Car was 3 years old with 57000 miles on it, body was a little rough (dents when you lean on it) and had a cracked windshield (still does). I figured I would use it for work to save some miles on my other car and couldn't resist the price for a 3 year old car. It quickly became my primary car and I used it all the time even on long trips. Friends teased me about it until the gas crunch and then they were jealous. At 6'4" its not to tight and has good headroom. It is by far the most reliable cheap to run and fix car I've ever owned in my 25 years of driving. Also, I drive this car hard, 8 hour trips at 80+ mph, & 98 degrees with the air on (SW Tenn) and never so much as a sputter, and no one can believe the amount of cargo it holds. A six foot ladder fits in it. Even though its bumpy and noisy, I'll drive it into the ground.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
