1999 Chevrolet Metro Sedan LSi 4dr Sedan


For a small car, the ride, handling, paint finish, and interior are liveable. Equipt with a A/C, the car has one whole engine cylinder of four devoted just to turn the compressor. I had to turn off the unit when anticipating a hill on the freeway. Further more, when decending down the same hill required me the press the accelerator down one-forth down just to overcome the high gear ratio that engine brakes.Also the A/C temperature, never got cold. When climbing up the hill without the A/C, the car has more than enough power. The only warranty service done was to replace a leaking A/C compressor shaft seal. Still the A/C preformed the same as above. It averaged only forty MPG.

Best Features

Easy to park. No door dings due to narrow width.

Worst Features

If the Metro ever returns to America, I would consider owning one if the automatic transmission, without the Torque Converter Clutch, came with a fifth gear overdrive like the manual Trans does so I can coast down a hill without touching the gas pedal. I don't need the A/C.
