Amazing Little Car
By dragonxks on
2000 Chevrolet Metro 2dr Hatchback
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
All the parts are super cheap = HUGE plus when your broke.
The most expensive thing i replaced was an EGR valve for 60$. wagner ceramic brakes and 2 premium rotors for 40$ everything is soo cheap.
Doing the maintenance yourself is a breeze. open engine compartment with plenty of room to work and everything is very accessible.
I can go 3 weeks in between fill ups, i run premium gas with either an octane booster or injector cleaner in it. really makes the engine more peppy
wish the back seat folded down more flat. and that the covering of the spare tire in the back was made with something more stiff than cardboard with a piece of fabric over it.
