Gas Saver — i love the way my car is. The brakes work fine, though I had to put in a water pump when I first got it. Fuel cost is amazing. I love driving my car! Only thing I don't like about it is that its not the great of looking car.

Pros: Fuel cost!

Cons: It's not the best looking care

Geo Metro — Ive found when it comes to acceleration this car is about equal to a heavy truck loaded weighing 40 tonne with about 500 hp. Braking is fine (who needs that anyway, I have gears), and i have driven none other that handles so well in a parking lot. Shes needed a little tlc, but with 240 000k and still getting high forties for milage im not complaining,"too much". Appearance well you just have to appreciate her inner beauty, the way she beautifully can slip thru heavy traffic, almost like she has two wheels.

Pros: fuel economy, good in city

Cons: not a chick magnet (or am i wrong?)

Its My Dream Car I Have It And I Love It — over all it is a wounderfull car but any car can be if you keep up the matinence. Yea mine needed alot of work done to it and still needs some done to it, but when im done it will be the best car ever. There is a 3cyl.(1.0 liter engine) and a 4 cyl.(1.3 liter engine). the 3 cyl. gets way better gas milage but it doesnt go as fast, and the 4 cyl. gets really good gas milage but it also goes faster. I just know that over all it is a really good car and you can fit lots of things in it even though it doesnt look like you can.

Pros: great on gas

Cons: gets knocked out of alignment easily

Fun Little Beater! — Its a fun little car, and if you want it fast you can buy the parts for the suzuki swift, the car it's based on. lemme tell you 70hp can get you to 92, downill. I did it once. note just once. not dumb enough to try again.

Pros: small, easy to feel shifter gates and clutch(at least at 5 years old)

Cons: SLOWWWWWW, quality wasn't great.  my best friends 2nd car, so it was fun

Easy On Gas — These cars are awesome for gas mileage. Very reliable, minimal maintenance. Easy to work on and parts are plentiful. Make sure your life insurance is paid up before driving one though. If you are unlucky enough to get into a frontal collision, it's game over. Also, these cars are notorious for frame horn rusting. This effectively ends the cars service life since the control arm (A arm) bolts to it. When the rust has had it's effect, the control arm breaks free of the chassis which results in the CV axle breaking and loss of steering, thus rendering the car inoperable. If this happens at a high speed such as interstate travel, you are going to be at a complete loss of control. Check these areas of the frame for rust if you decide to buy one of these! Other than this issue, they are great gas misers and not to shabby looking either.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Excellent gas mileage

Cons: Built like a corrugated cardboard box. Basically a high-tech go-cart with a roof.
