This post is far later than the dates of previous posts, but I am a newly acquired Metro Convertible owner. I read a lot of posts and googled information written by Metro owners to get educated before I took the plunge, and SO glad I did! It is a blast to drive, and being a stick, even more fun. Pristine condition 1991 with 93,000 miles, never seen winter, not a lick of rust, very comfortable even on long trips. The elderly man I purchased it from babied it from day 1. Seats were redone with 2" of foam added for comfort and recovered with vinyl. Door panel covers and floor carpeting also updated. Passed Etest and Certification with flying colours. Engine compartment is immaculate! 2FUN42! UPDATE: September 11, 2020: Still loving my Geo, now at 103,000 miles! Parts are inexpensive and very easy to come by, switched to full synthetic 5W30 and Wix filter shortly after buying the car and getting 58 mpg...very DIY friendly I baby my baby and drive between 60-65 mph. Hoping to hang on and enjoy the ride of this one for many years to come.
