I bought this after my 66' mustang got wrecked
I wanted something that was cheap on gas so I got this lil Metro hatchback.
I got it for $1,900 with 197+ miles. Put new tires on it for 150$ and replaced the EGR valve that was throwing a code and did a basic tune up on it, plugs,wires,filters and sea-foamed it.
I took it on a vacation trip from Reno to Crescent
City ca. I was doing 75 the whole way with my boyfriend and 110 German shepherd and 2 duffel bags of stuff. I was getting 50 mpg when I ran Lucas injector cleaner in the gas tank. Comfy seats surprisingly

Bought this car new and have been driving for 10 years. This is the most trouble free car I have ever owned. The only thing that has failed on this car has been the a/c compressor at 80k miles. That is using the a/c every day summer and winter since I bought it. I've done regular maintenance and this thing just drives forever. I get 45 mpg and the insurance is really low. I've got 124,000 miles and still runs great!

Great little cars. I have owned 5 (five). I drive them an average of 180- 200 miles a day (sw washington to Seattle). A bit noisy but for the 500+ miles I get on a 10 gal tank of gas I'll live with it. I have saved thousands on gas. Easily enough to buy my wife the new Escape hybrid.

I bought this car with 69,000 on it and it has 97,000 now. The way the car is performing I would not doubt that it may reach 200,000. Engine is spotless. I heard my pastor's wife say right next to me not knowing it was mine that it was a very quiet car. Made me feel proud. Not to mention getting 53 mpg consistently and a/c still works. I prayed for 2 weeks for a 3 cylinder 5 speed metro at a time when very few were selling them because of fuel prices. I did find some for sale on eBay but did not want to go out of state. Then this car showed up about 2 1/2 miles from my house. The guy said he just showed up with it one hour ago. Paid 2,700. It is just like I wanted but better. Will never sell it!

I'm truly impressed!! I bought it
about 11/2 years back with 36K miles
for $3500. I now have 52K miles,
and the car has been ABSOLUTELY
trouble free!! I get about 35 to 36
mpg in PURE city driving (and Los
Angeles traffic is as bad as it gets)
and it has given as high as 47mpg on
pure highway stretches at 65mph with
the A/C on!! I was incredibly
surprised at how comfortable it was
inside (at 5'10" I'm not very tall),
but nevertheless it truly exceeded my
expectations!! The clutch is among the
best in the business, and the gear
shifting is butter smooth. This is an
UNBELIEVABLE VALUE FOR THE MONEY!!

2nd Metro I've owned and reliability
was reason for purchasing again. I had
187000 on first Metro and was on
original engine, clutch, and
transmission. This one does not get
the mileage the first one got and not
as peppy either. It is more
comfortable and has a/c.
