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.
The anti-lock brake system (ABS) light may illuminate, especially in hot or humid weather, due to binding in the ABS motor pack. Our technicians tell us that replacement of the motor pack will be necessary to correct this concern.

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.
I bought a 97 geo metro hatchback in 02 at 36,000 miles it now has 205,000 and still running strong, it needs alot of work basic wear and tear work like brakes, exhaust, it needs a catalic converter for emmisions but im going to pay it and put the car in semi-retirement, just use it for around town errands
My son bought our '95 Metro in '99 to go off to Philly to school. It had 50 k miles and body was in very good shape. It survived Philly for four years - lifted up on curve by football players - towed twice and returned- and made it past Broad and side streets many nights. My son graduated in '02 and passed it on to me. I replace the exhaust system once, new alternator, two batteries and that is it. Now has 185,000 mi and gets almost 50 mpg. Now has a tick when it starts and i suspect it is a starter. I am not replacing anything else and will probably sell very soon.
THIS car has been unbelievable! Very cheap to run and even after 14 years it is probably my most dependable vehicle of 5.....
QUESTION -- WHY, PLEASE TELL ME WHY can't the US produce a 3 cylindar car with this quality? I think i know the answer, they don't want to lose money. This car needs about $500 of cosmetic and simple mechanical work and i bet it will go 300,000. It is now worth every penny of the $3000 my son paid for it. It will be hard to give up.
