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 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
I just bought a 97 geo metro, I love it! It's my lil purple people eater! :)
My "shoe-box" on wheels get's me to and from where I am going. Great on gas milage but that is about all.
