1999 Chevrolet Metro Sedan LSi 4dr Sedan


For a small car, the ride, handling,
paint finish, and interior are
liveable. Equipt with a A/C, the car
has one whole engine cylinder of four
devoted just to turn the compressor. I
had to turn off the unit when
anticipating a hill on the freeway.
Further more, when decending down the
same hill required me the press the
accelerator down one-forth down just to
overcome the high gear ratio that
engine brakes.Also the A/C temperature,
never got cold. When climbing up the
hill without the A/C, the car has more
than enough power. The only warranty
service done was to replace a leaking
A/C compressor shaft seal. Still the
A/C preformed the same as above. It
averaged only forty MPG.

Best Features

Easy to park. No door dings due to narrow width.

Worst Features

If the Metro ever returns to America, I would consider owning one if the automatic transmission, without the Torque Converter Clutch, came with a fifth gear overdrive like the manual Trans does so I can coast down a hill without touching the gas pedal. I don't need the A/C.
