I bought it used in 1998 with around 65,000 miles on it.
Traded it off in 2006 with 200,000 miles.
In all that time, I think I replaced an alternator and had a tune up.
Worth twice the price.
And the darned thing got 52 mpg on the highway!
I live in Denver and I took several road trips to Las Vegas in that car that cost all of about $60.00 in fuel (at the time).
This car spoiled me for other cars.
Every car I've had since then has been a lemon in my eyes because they need repairs occasionally, and need to be re-fueled now and then.

I absolutely love my '94 Geo Metro XFi. My grandparents bought it used around '94; I acquired it in '05. After 18 years of life, it might finally be time for me to say goodbye to this car, due to some substantial subframe damage lately. But even now, the only issue with the car is rust; the engine, the transmission, etc. are all perfectly fine. After 18 years, and a low 74,000 miles, the only major repairs were replacing the MAP sensor (around 65-70K), replacing the exhaust and muffler, and replacing front CV joints and control arms (this year and last year). This car is amazingly reliable. I've driven it in every harsh condition, as well as across the country. surprising cargo capacity too.

94 2-door hatchback, bought new.
Used for commuting from '94-'96.
Excellent commuter car (after stereo upgrade).
Averaged 45 mpg.
From 0-5 mph, as fast as anything!
Then the flywheel momentum was conferred.
I actually loved this car, but unfortunately its not for a young single man.
People just don't want to understand why someone would drive this.
It was a good car, but nearly impossible to sell during the boom years of the mid-90's.
Later drove a '96 for another two years - same comments
