Never breaks down. More comfortable on long trips than my Subaru Outback. Amazing MPG. Great snow car with proper tires. Fun to drive. You can speed without fear of getting a ticket as cops don't believe their radar. Cost $8,000 new
Metro's are excellent cars for the small
amount of money needed to buy one.
Always, make sure you get a 5 speed.
Never, buy this car in a power and
mileage robbing 3 speed automatic. This
is the reason that it so hard to find a
used low mileage stick and so easy to
find a low mileage automatic. Expect,
to get 40 mpg with a stick Metro with
pretty good comfort and equipment
levels. 1998 and newer models had
Fuel Injection and are much quicker!
This is my second new Metro. First
one was total by a semi (and I walked
away!). Love the comfort. Love the
milage even better! Low maint.
costs! Would buy my third new metro
if only Chevy would wise up and start
making these little gems again!
I bought this car solely due to its low
price back in 1998. Since that time I
have put on 82000miles & have had no
problems, I love my car. I have been
in 2 accidents once in the front and
once in the rear and both left no
damage on myself or my car. The gas
mileage is amazing even with the A/C
running. I find I often shock those
next to me at lights because I am not
the last one out. You would think this
3 cyl engine would drag, but I have
never experienced this. I hate to have
to get rid of this car, but it is not
compatable to car seats going in and
out. ohh Have I mentioned I love my
car. It is the most under rated car
that has ever been sold.
Ok, I admit it; I’m cheap. We bought the Metro in 1997 for under $8,000 (including taxes and license). With the wind, it gets around 50 mpg and has never done less than 35. If you are a cheapskate, don't believe the lies about the Metro. The professional review is really misleading and lacks historical perspective. Compared to my other car, a highly- rated 2002 Subaru Outback, it was a heck of a buy. Oh yeah, more comfortable, reliable and fun to drive too.
