I bought My Metro new (1998 model) and
drove it 130,000 miles until I ran into
a parked SUV. The airbag worked great
and I got only a scratch. The car was
100% reliable - it always started and
ran good. It gave 40+ miles per
gallon. With the rear seat down, the
hatch could carry very large items.
I'll miss that car, wish they were
still building them, I'd buy another.
Now that I think about it, the only
problem was an oil leak, at about
85,000 miles. Good car!
Gas milage, low cost to buy and
operate, park anywhere.
