We have a tight driveway that dictates a narrow car. Although we could afford any car, we are quite pleased with our second Metro. We sold our first to a coworker who has logged another 100k on the 3 banger. This new one with the 4 cyl engine has some nice punch. Good head & leg room, nimble, easy on gas. We bought this from a dealer for $6k with 39k miles. So far, no major problems. This is a very good car for the money with Suzuki engineering. A nicely built, tight car.
Narrow width, good mpg, low maintenance, split fold down back seats for golf bags, easy parking, 4 passenger/4 door performance, running lights, value for the money, and the trunk release is quite handy.
We would love to have cruise control for weekend trips to relatives' house. That's it. Everything else is very good.
