1st metro was a '97 w/ 49k. Drove it to
100k, NEVER a problem, not one! A lady
smashed into the side of me at full
speed, outside driver side door was
completely mangled and buckled in, but
the inside looked like nothing had
happened (great car construction). I was
amazed, walked away without a scratch.
Car even still ran! Once insurance co
settled purchased a 2000 w/ 34k. Have
been driving it for 8 months, love these
Lots of room inside. Great for city & no
problem getting in and out of small
parking spaces that others must pass up.
WONDERFUL on gas. VERY reliable.
the cupholder is too close to the dash,
can't fit most drinks in normally, and
can't put it in park with a large cup in
the holder. not much of a gripe, like I
said before, great car!
For what this car is about, getting
from point A to point B it does it, and
with little gas. At 6'2" it is not the
car for me but for my wife it works
fine. Credit card dollars helped
reduce the cost of this car to < $6000
new. So, that helped.
