Great Value Car. — I absulelty loved my geo metro. I could do all kinds of things in that thing! I could go have a brake sessino in the back roads and not worry about tearing my tires up becuase they were only $50 each! and gas wasn't any worry even though it was up pretty high when i owned it. But all in all if you can find a geo metro for $600 like i did then buy it! but make sure your frame by the a arms are solid or you might have a nasty meeting with a ditch.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: I absolutly loved this car. It got 45 mph and only took $20 to fill the tank and i could get to work and back for about a week without having to fill up. It was great for friends and family and had plenty of room for groceries in the back. parts where pretty cheap too. a set of tires was only about $230 and i replaced two wheel bearing which both of those were only $20 each. GREAT CAR.

Cons: The frame but the a arm decides it doesn't like being there and completly rusts to the point to going down the road and being thrown into a ditch. Once i checked out what happened i had about a 8" hole of rust where there should have been frame.

Ugh, I Ran Screaming From This Car When We Finally Traded It In! — My wife (then girlfriend) wanted to buya car after graduating university. I suggested there were lots of great used cars, but she wanted something new "with a warranty." And so the Metro was bought. Even she admits now it was a stupid choice. I recall it cost $9400.00 in 1994. It was green with an aweful beige interior. Std transmission. I hated this car from the get go. I am a bigger guy (6ft, 285 lbs). When we drove in this car together our shoulders would touch. It had nothing going for it and lots to dislike. Performance was poor. It had a lot of zip in first gear, but that was about the end of it. I believe the motor may have been from a sewing maching, I'm not sure. I think it was only three cylinders. Build quality was atrocious. You could hear every single pebble hitting the undercarriage. Definitely no insulation in this car. One winter I closed the hood on it and a large piece of plastic from the head light assembly snapped off. GM wouldn't replace it under warranty (remember the missus wanted the peace of mind) as it was considered "wear and tear". Nice. Anyway. If you looked at the vinyl on the ceiling the wrong way it would rip. Did I mention that i hated this car. It looked like a big green roller skate and the handling was about as good. For such a small car it sure anted to plow ahead in turns. It did have economy on it's side. It was cheap to insure and operate. But that's because it wasn't worth a darn. We did not have many mjor repairs, but my wife is easy on her vehicles and we traded it after 6 years. This car was not fun in any way, shape or form. I feared for my life if we were to ever be in an accident. There were no airbags then. I will give it that with the rear seats folded down you could actually haul a fair bit of stuff in it. That's about the only nice thing I can say about a car that didn't even come with a radio. It also was equpped with power nothing as a sandard feature. If you want a small, economical people mover, I think you could do much better.

Pros: Good on gas. Can haul a surprising amount of stuff with rear seats folded.

Cons: Pretty much everything else. (It had 13" tires...'nuff said)

Trusty Little Vehicle — An amazing gas saver car. It's hard to get replacements for parts because they tend to be made in random countries. Down side: it doesn't go fast... at all. I got it to 80 once... and that was screaming the engine, downhill, with the wind at my back. It's great for around town driving, though. And like I said, an amazing gas saver car. I would definitely recommend this car for new drivers, or commuters. It's not exactly going to protect you in an accident, considering it's a lunchbox on wheels, but it's mostly dependable.

Pros: gas milage, size (fits in any parking space)

Cons: difficult to replace major parts

Gas Milage — Awesome gas milage. great sound system. Started driving this due to the clutch going out in my Escort. Has the system from my escort. Slays deer, has Suzuki Swift front end grafted on due to deer hits and a sister hitting a car. 40 mpg highway, 58 mpg with subs turned on. kinda lacks power due to a little 3 banger but 5spd and handbrake make up for it. Aftermarket Suzuki rims, upgraded from 12s to 13s.

Pros: great gas milage, sun roof, fits in many places, perfect for license tests

Cons: cant fit many people in it, low on power, too many haters out there
