The brake pedal may pulsate on apply due to warped brake rotors. This condition is commonly caused by uneven lug nut torque. Proper lug nut torque is recommended to try and avoid this concern.

Geo Metro Problems
The spot welds on the hood striker may be misaligned causing the hood not to latch properly. The correction is to install oversize washers under striker mounting bolts to secure the striker.
An engine vacuum leak from the throttle-body base gasket may result in a rough idle and/or stumble on acceleration. If this occurs, replacement of the failed gasket will be necessary.
The dome light may stay on due to a faulty door jamb switch which will require replacement.
Our technicians tell us these vehicles are sensitive to fuel quality. Using fuel of marginal quality can result in illumination of the Check Engine Light with misfire or oxygen sensor fault codes stored.

Geo Metro Reviews
I love my 1994 Geo Metro XFI! I worry that it is an orphan and 12 inch tires are hard to find, but it gets about 40mpg and I can reach the passenger side door and roll that window down. I do not have a/c, but it has a great heater. I have had some electrical issues - overhead lamp and gage dispay lighting have gone out. I paid to get the overhead lamp fixed and the gage display lights came back by themselves and been fine every since. Yes, it is fragile in sime ways, but the mechanics have all told me that my Mitsubitsy(?) engine will out live many other engines.
I bought my 4 cylinder Metro used (I'm the third owner) with 145K for $400. It was poorly cared for by the previous owner and should have been junked. Anyway, I call the Metro a poor man's Prius. It's up to 183K now and has been a mixed blessing. It gets good gas mileage (40 mpg)on my 110 mile commute per day, but goes through a period during the year when it won't start up in the morning until about 10 A.M. Spent lots of money replacing stuff to try to solve the "no start" problem. My wife wants me to junk it since she can't rely on it. I change the oil regularly and am thinking of switching from 5 W 20 to a Full Synthetic. Hope it lasts till over 200K.

tired of getting raped at gas pump so a relative had a 97 geo metro 3cyl 5spd hatchback for $400 62k overall in very good shape. flew from pa to fl to drive home. in feb 2011 from tampa to philly about $100 in gas but blew a hole in the exhaust. Within these first six months ive had to replace brakes, both headlights, radio, distrib and cpu thank god parts are so cheap for this car. so ive got about another $600 into the car now. after a few months up here in the cold i drove in to work one day, parked it, came out at the end of the day and it was dead. got a few different theories why it just died like that (cold weather seems to be it) its been running great since the new cpu was installed .saving alot of money on gas averaging about 40mpg hopefully ill get the 200k miles everyone else seems to be getting
I bought my metro with 11 miles off the lot, i am not sitting at 274000+ only repair and maintenance, orginal motor, tranny, clutch, headlight :) ....with ethonal in the fuel i lost about 10 mpg, but still do an average of 40mpg. this is the first and best car i've ever purchased. The only problem i have is with an emissions sensor that i refuse to change because the state i live in doesn't require smog check.
