The little putt - putt

by on
Vehicle: 1997 Geo Metro LSi 4dr Sedan

I bought my first Geo from a friend and fell in love, now 7 years and almost 300,000 miles later it has finally started dying on me. But I love my little putt-putt so much I managed to find another one identical to her with only 100,000 miles on it. These are great little cars and I hate that they are no longer made. Geo had a great product, maybe that's why chevy bought them cause they were scared? (97 Geo Metro 4dr Sedan 1.3 L 4 cyl) and yes they made 4 cyl in 97 contrary to some car parts places.




Great car!!

Vehicle: 1997 Geo Metro LSi 4dr Sedan

This is the 3rd Geo I have had. I enjoy the excellent gas mileage and the peace of mind that I get when I start it up every day. I know it will always start for me and perform. I bought it used, to help off set the gas consumption of my 99 Silverado. It is easy to tune and oil change. I would recommend it to anyone needing a 2nd dependable car. The after market parts are very expensive.




Never again

THERE DEVELOPED A KNOCK IN THE ENGINE AND WHEN WE TOOK IT TO OUR MECHANIC HE SAID THAT THE ENGINE NEEDS TO BE REPLACED. NOTHING COULD BE DONE FOR THE LOUD KNOCK
