I have a three cylinder 'Metro' 1995 with All weather radials here in Alaska. This car has been the most amazing I have ever owned in terms of reliability, even at sub zero temperatures The hatchback-trunk can hold an amazing amount, rear seat turned forwards, I put a boxed TV into it where a Chevy 'Caprice' couldn't hold it!. Great town car, parks on a dime, very economic on gas. All in all, the best car I ever had so far, of the two cars I own.

I purchased a 1997 Metro 4 cyl with 94,000 miles on it for $2000. I now have 150K miles and it is still going strong. It still gets 38-40 mpg.

I just bought a 1997 Geo Metro Lsi a few days ago. the engine was replaced with a brand new one in 2005. The engine has 15,000 miles on it, the car has about 82,000 miles on it. I just checked the mileage after driving only in town for 50 miles. I'm only getting 17 miles per gallon. The car seems to run fine and is in excellent overall condition. Can anyone tell me why my mileage would be so low?
I have been looking on lne but can't find anywhere stating how many miles per gallon the 1997 Metro Lsi should get. Can anyone tell me?

About the fuel efficiency problem:
Start changing the oxygen sensor, then make sure to replace all filters, spark plugs and cables.
The oxygen sensor is the main cause of that problem, and it's recommended to replace that every 50k miles.

I love my lil Easter egg!! It is perfect for me driving around town and to go visit my sweetie 2 towns over!! This car is a blessing to me and I got it a few months before the gas spike of 08!! But, I get great gas mileage on the highway and off and it just fits me!! IDK how anybody would dislike a Metro!!! :)

I have a 2000 Metro LSI with a 4 cylinder engine/automatic transmission. Does anybody know if it's possible to install an overdrive on this trans? It only has 3 speeds and the speed maxes out at 70 mph. Any ideas?

Is there anyone in the Cleveland, Ohio area who works on Metro's? I have a 1997 Geo Metro Lsi and I've noticed that it's not easy to find parts. I love my car and would love to keep it, but it's starting to have major issues and I'm not a mechanic, so I would like to find someone who is a mechanic who appreciates what a great car this is. Thanks.
