I have owned the car for 2 years and have put over 115K miles on it.. I have replaced nothing, and beat and abused this car and it won't break. Everything works, looks decent. Gets about 35mpg, costs $8 to fill up right now with gas being $1.75. I have changed the oil about once every 10-15K miles and it never uses any oil. Starts every time.

I bought this car brand new in 96, I drove this car 45 miles to work and back every day for years. The car logged over 260,000 miles before I gave it to my son. I even rolled the car on its side in a ditch and never had to do any major repaors other than body work. The engine and trans worked like they did they day I bought even after 260,000 miles. Amazing, great gas milage, great reliabilty, great car. If you can find one of these cars that have been taken care of I would recomend it.

I've put 50,177 miles on my Geo in the last 5 years. I get between 40-45 miles per gallon, depending on city or hwy. Most of my driving is a combination of the two. The only repairs I've had to make is a new muffler (the core rusted off). It's very reliable, starts up even after sitting a couple months in storage. Its easy to park, turn around in tight places, has a seperate trunk that is huge, amazing feature for this trim car. I do wish it had a rear defroster sometimes, but the heater is very adequate even in January in IL.

I bought my 4-door Geo Metro Sedan used
in 1998. Since then, I put over 86,000
miles on it and never had to do any
repairs other than standard maintenance
(brake pads, tires, tune up, etc.).
Although it is a small car, there is a
surprizing amount of room on the
interior, and the rear seats fold down
for large loads.
At 112K miles, I was rear-ended by
a '88 Lincoln Towncar that was
travelling about 20-30 mph. I have had
a lot of people tell me how these cars
would 'crumple like a tin can' if they
were in an accident, and I was
surprized how little visible damage was
