1990 Geo Metro 2dr Hatchback

Review

I bought the 1990 Metro new for $6499.
My wife used to drive between Randolph AFB and Lackland AFB everyday for work.
Almost always she would encounter "rush hour traffic" that moved at 45-50 MPH.
On her 90 mile commute at this low speed she routinely achieved 62-63 MPG week after week.
After about 18 months she decided that she needed a more comfortable car. It had 65,000 trouble-free miles on it when we sold it.
No cruise control,
no A/C, no frills of any kind.


BTW,
on a trip to South Dakota and back we averaged 65 MPH and got 46 MPG HWY.

Best Features

The economy, reliability and ease of ownership on this car is unparalleled. The only vehicle I have had since then that even comes close to the level of "trouble free ownership" that this Metro had is a 1989 Ford Bronco II.
