2000 Chevrolet Metro LSi 4dr Sedan
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.
Good trunk size.
Can park in spaces which are not spaces.
Like having a Smart car for 4 passengers.
I think I paid about $75 each for new tires which is on the lower side compared with most vehicles.
This model was discontinued in 2001.
The defroster was the major downside of this car.
It's a no-frills model with manual side mirrors and roll-down windows.
