by GeoLove on Jan 20, 2010 Vehicle: 1995 Geo Metro LSi 2dr Hatchback
My husband bought this car in 97. He was its second owner. I took over driving it four years ago and even when we bought a new car, I wanted to drive the Geo. But this weekend, a guy hit my car and the now its worth less than it would cost to fix it. This car has given us almost 9 years AFTER being paid off. It gets 40 mpg easily and I don't even know how to think about replacing it. In my mind, what replaces a car that was reliable even with 140k on it with NO major repairs? BUY this car, but don't get hit by someone with Safe Auto insurance!

I purchased my 95 Geo second hand from the dealer. The car was first sold in 3/96 and I purchased it about a year later. I think that the purple color had something to do with the slow sale. It never got the 49MPG that the five speed 3 cylinder was supposed to get but with air on I got 38 MPG regularly. I have had the clutch replaced and one set of tires replaced. I just had it repainted this week and I am planning to drive it for another 130,000 miles. I drove it from San Diego CA to Riverside CA every day for five years and it never caused me any problem.(150 miles round trip-70+MPH) I can recommend this car to anyone provided it has been maintained per the manual - great car.

A great car for basic transportation.
Inexpensive to own, low on insurance,
fuel, and maintenance. Handles fine on
slick roads.I have had nothing major go
wrong in 3 years of driving it! As the
smallest on the road, I'm not convinced
the airbags or seatbelts will save
lives. I've been looking into getting a
safer car, but I am fearful that it
won't be as dependable or efficient.
All-new car is larger than previous model, and comes as a two-door hatchback or four-door sedan in base or LSi trim. Dual airbags are standard. ABS is optional on all models. Hatchbacks get the carryover 1.0-liter three-cylinder motor. Optional on LSi hatchback and standard on sedans is a 70-horsepower, 1.3-liter four-cylinder engine. Daytime running lights are standard.
The GEO METRO hatchback was the ultimate 90's loser-mobile. 3 cylinder (lack of) power, a true death trap, and styling that made minivans look cool. I can totally see Napolean Dynamite (Do the chick...
