Well I definitely have to say that this car is big improvement than my last. Mine is a 97 Geo Metro LSi 4 door, and my last... a Nissan Pulsar NX 2 door.
Let me tell you, I'm a 6'3" guy, and when I drove my Nissan it was like a clown car with all my friend in it. But now, Everyone gets their own door to get in and out of, and my knees are no longer up to my ears when I drive. I feel very comfortable. I mean, its no Lexus, but its still an improvement and it's got 167K miles on it, and the engine sounds like its only been driven 60k to 70k.
So this car compared to my other is definitely a 4 star improvement for me. And as far as brake lights that stop working, mirrors falling off, and whatever other problems that had been mentioned... I have yet to see any with my Geo.
Hey! I have 2 Geo Metro. I love them, and that's why I have bought the second one. The first one is a 1992, and I have not had any problems with the car yet; it has been good. All Geo Metro are made right here in Canada (where I live). I also have a 1997 Geo Metro. I am a single guy and I fit in the car. I would not buy one of them for a family, but I like Suzuki and they make them. Its too bad they are not made anymore. I am going to save my metros for the rest of my life!
I LOVE my 1997 Metro!
My dad gave it to me for my birthday last year. What an awesome vehicle. Yes it is small in the back, but it gets great gas mileage and they run forever. It's all pretty cheap to fix. We also had a problem with the A/C, but we just chose to not fix it for now.
If I was looking to buy another vehicle it would be a Geo Metro.
