1998 Chevrolet Metro 2dr Hatchback


40 mpg city without air on. Air drags 3 cyl 5 spd down to 30mpg. Don't expect to get on the freeway unless you turn everything off and downshift to third to get up speed. I'm always the last from a light. 50 mph the car runs fantastic, at 70 on freeway it is wound up so tight in 5th gear it is hurting. Repairs have been minor except for a constant unrepairable airconditioning compressor leak. On the 3rd compressor and no air with only 59,000 miles on the car. Cheap cost, great low driving and repair cost - but get what you pay for.

Best Features

Great gas mileage, low maintenance cost, low purchase cost. Great city commuter car.

Worst Features

Cheap plastic buttons that hold the car together and break all the time. Make them out of better material. Make air so it doesn't drag the engine down so bad.
