I have had my 98 Chevy Metro, automatic transmission, for 12 years.
Over the 12 years I have amassed over 180,000 miles. It has been an absolutely reliable, fuel efficient, and extremely durable used car.
Aside from replacing the transmission and regular maintenance, I have had to do nothing major to this vehicle.
The ride is not spectacular.
There is a lot of road noise.
It came with a standard AM/FM radio and manual windows and door locks. Quinn hit, the body damage can be extensive because it's not solidly built.
It crumbles like tinfoil.
Great fuel economy, absolutely reliable, decent space for a compact car.
