I love this car. I purchased my 96 metro 5 speed for only 800.00. At first (being a bigger guy) I was actually embarrassed to be seen in it, then as I would drive by the fuel pumps, and see people standing at the pumps looking all depressed, I learned to smile as I drove past them. As far as acceleration... Don't need it. I just leave a little earlier going somewhere and as people pass me I just think"go ahead, burn all your gas up... Don't care."as far as parking, it's like parking a go-cart.......... Bottom line........... I love this car!

This little Geo has over 120,000 miles on her and she is still going strong. She has just been handed down to me from my gma as my first car, and I am so excited. This car is older than I am but I know she will keep on running. I used to ride in it when I was a baby, and know I get to drive in it as a "Big Kid." I am so happy to drive the Geo In Motion. I call her GIM!!!

I drive 26 miles one way to work and bought the little thing at almost a steal! With 99800 miles on it, looked good, very simple, well maintained by the previous owner, almost like new! I bought the little scamp for fuel mileage, and didnt expect much, but its the best car Ive bought in a long time! So far I figure it gets an honest 46 mpg (mostly highway)! Im impressed, with one exception... hills. Eh, I can live with that for the fuel economy though! I plan to see how long this thing will last, 250000 miles? I dont see why not! Regular maintenance, a set of vent visors, and a cup holder is all it should need! Too bad they dont build em like this anymore! Guess it was too good to last!

The best car to own, it hugs corners on its lo pro 13 inch rims, and easily modified. My geo has an upgraded performance custom exhaust system and short shift kit. Plans to turbocharge it when time is available. Awesome care, head turner.

I bought it as a commute car after the
first day of my new Job which was 35
miles away. I drove my Mercedez ML320
to work and I was shocked when I saw
the wear and tear and gas bill. I went
and bought this car for mere $2500. It
was manual with 57000 miles on it. But
since then I drove 25000 miles in just
2 years and I didn't have to take it
to any repair shop except the oil
change. It is a Great car for commute
consistently giving me 42-48 miles per
gallon. It has already saved me more
than $2500 on my ML320 Gas and $$$ of
wear and tear.
