1998 Chevrolet Metro 2dr Hatchback


When I bought the car new, it was listed MSRP $9000, at 2% interest payments. I got $600 off the trade-in, $750 Special markdown on sticker, and $500 loyal Chevy buyer discount ($7150 total cost). Its been ultra reliable, only routine maintenance and 1 starter, less weight than a Volkswagon, gets 44.6 MPG when new, and not much different at 101,300 miles. Do not let the oil get low! It is a 3 cyl. 1.0 liter, best for 1 person city trips. Use 185/60QR-14 Bridgestone Blizzak WS-50 snow tires on this car in the snow or expect to not go because it is so lite in weight. I replaced the original 13" rims for 14", and had no issues. The metal sides dent easily in parking lots, no rust in 10years!

Best Features

Gas sipper, fun to drive in the snow

Worst Features

Any accident and you will lose, so it is not a good car for reckless drivers or probably new drivers. The molding for door ding prevention was placed too low. Lift the body, its low for getting in and out of, not good for handi-capped for that reason. Manual shift gets sticky over the years at pivot
