1988 Austin MetroReview

My First Car — Mine didn't have the sunroof or the shiny chrome door handles like in the photo... I can't remember much about this car except that the engine was weak, and it felt like the suspension would break if I had too many people in the car... It was ok though, I remember the 4 speed manual being better to shift than my crappy Scion tC now.

Pros: cheap

Cons: ugly, weak, dangerous

Metro By Matt

A pretty poor car overall, it was slow, small but economical. It went on and on and on and took us all miles around the country so it was pretty much the little engine that could. Despite being a 9... Read More
