Bought this car used in 2008 with 61K miles.
Inspection sticker was from 2003; it hadn't been driven that time.
Rusty underneath, but other than that, very fine.
Took it off the road for 6 months due to heavy potholes; cost $700 to repair due to being idle.
Took tough city streets to work and needed a new rack and pinion ($700).
A/C compressor went a year ago, due to
having to constantly use the A/C - even in the winter - to get the windshield and side windows defrosted.
Other than that, this is a great car and still depended on.
You feel the bumps but that's because its a subcompact.
Now at 100k miles.
Gas mileage about 20 local / 30 highway w/ reg gas w/ auto transmission.

I got into a wreck with my 2000 chevy metro the 6th week I owned her. I was driving down a dirt road and hit a deer going around a corner; my metro spun and hit the deer twice. Once up front, once in the back. I spun again and tilted onto my driver side and slid 50ft into the woods and hit TWO trees. When she stood upright my only damage was on my drivers side (Needed new doors which were fixed for $300) I came out of that wreck alive because of how GOOD the Chevy Metro was built. I would recommend this car to any parents looking for a car of their child. A pretty inexpensive car to fix and buy. (Mine was an automatic not a 5 speed but they dont have that option)

For around town perfect car, has new struts, exhaust, paint job, timing belt, AC works great. Car has held up exceptionally well and over 10 years old now. Would not trade it in or sell it for any other car made for what I use it for.
