1991 Geo Metro LSi 2dr Convertible


Review

This post is far later than the dates of previous posts, but I am a newly acquired Metro Convertible owner. I read a lot of posts and googled information written by Metro owners to get educated before I took the plunge, and SO glad I did! It is a blast to drive, and being a stick, even more fun. Pristine condition 1991 with 93,000 miles, never seen winter, not a lick of rust, very comfortable even on long trips. The elderly man I purchased it from babied it from day 1. Seats were redone with 2" of foam added for comfort and recovered with vinyl. Door panel covers and floor carpeting also updated. Passed Etest and Certification with flying colours. Engine compartment is immaculate! 2FUN42!


Best Features

Fun to Drive Manual Transmission 50+ MPG Parks Anywhere DIY Friendly


Worst Features

None. The car is what it is, 24 years old, appreciate it for that!

1991 Geo Metro 2dr Hatchback


Review

Bought this car from a used car dealer in 1992, and still runs great to this day. Only Major repairs were the fuel filter, cat converter, and fuel jet. Ok the water pump too. Most of those repairs were 10 yrs after purchase. The water pump and fuel jet were within the last year. Still gets 30+ miles to the gallon and purrs like a kitten. Best $7000 investment ever!


Best Features

the cute design on the side (aqua pinstripes)


Worst Features

needs power steering, not power assist. now comes in 4 cylinders (I only have 3)

1991 Geo Metro LSi 2dr Hatchback


Review

I love this car. Second car I bought and only car I will need again. I get 50 mpg if I'm gentle. I have beaten on the vehicle a lot and does not want to break. Only magor issue was the rear main seal and it was a ok fix. I have put 30,000 miles on it since I bought it with and done only oil change and main seal. If I could only car I would drive. Vehicle handles better then my Jeep in the winter. The car gets a lot of laughs but when the gas prices reached $4 a gallon I was laughing and people started buying metros for $4000. I will have to say it is not the greatest car by a long shot. But compared to what I put in and got out. I'm very happy. Perfect college car


Best Features

the whole car


Worst Features

can't find 12" tires. had to up grade to 13", scary one highway

1991 Geo Metro 4dr Hatchback


Review

This is a red 1991 Geo Metro 4 door hatchback 1.0L 3 cyl 5 speed (with a/c). It starts everytime. Parts are CHEAP! It costs VERY little to maintain. It's not a looker, I won't lie, but if you have a long commute, and can live without airbags, and ABS, I would recommend it. I do not feel super safe in this, but with extra caution, I've learned to absorb that fear! I do not reccommend this vehicle for more than 60 miles each way, or more than an hour drive with no traffic each way. It's not the most comfortable and it's very low to the ground. But with an average of 40-44 mpg, you can't go wrong. Shocks are poor. Overall build quality for a car this old is very good. Has 157000 miles.


Best Features

Gas mileage average 40-44 mpg. Ability to get in and out of tight spaces, and park anywhere! Starts everytime. Cheap to own and maintain, and cheap insurance. This car pays for itself in 6 months vs. owning an suv in a short amount of time.


Worst Features

Bring back a vehicle GM, that is a 1.0 3 cyl 5 speed, that acheives the 40mpg city and 50 mpg highway, at a low low price.
