1992 Geo Metro LSi 2dr Convertible


OK, so it takes more than 20 seconds from 0 to 60. Big deal. Find me another top-down car that gets 33 - 35 mpg in town; 40 mpg on the road (no wind; 70mph). 13 years - 80,000 miles; only actual repair - speed sensor in speedometer went out at 32K. Rest is maintenance. Out today 50 mile round trip - bright sun, mid '70's, 25 mph sw wind - sometimes headwind - sometimes tailwind. Great fun both ways. Handles fine on ice & snow - it's just a shame none of the current < $20K fwd coupes don't come as convertibles. Like many other stick shifts I've driven, when you're close enough to floor the clutch w left foot, your right foot is too far forward to use the throttle comfortably.

Best Features

Convertible, 5 speed, clutch, milage, reliability, 0 - 30 acceleration in town.

Worst Features

Wife is intimidated when in it - she doesn't like looking at the under- carriage of 18 wheelers @ 70mph. Also, extended time in the car hurts her back unless she pads the seat with pillows. I find a small pillow under my right thigh really helps when close enough to floor clutch!
