ReviewFor 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 FeaturesEasy to park. No door dings due to narrow width.
Worst FeaturesIf 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.
