1990 Geo Metro 2dr Hatchback


It has been 16 years since I had bought my Metro when it was new and it had nearly 600,000 miles. I have gone through 4 clutches, 2 front subframes, and 1 floorboard, which I replaced because it caved in last month on I-10. I had it dynoed 3 months ago and it made 21 hp, pretty good for such a high mileage car. Unfortunately, last week I parked it too close to the dump trucks at the quarry and I ran over it. That was when I discovered it was saturated with rust. Overall, it was a great car.

Best Features

Averaged 80 mpg at 55 mph on the freeway.

Worst Features

The passing power was so bad, it took me 15 minutes to pass a semi at full throttle at 60 mph.
