    Own — The acceleration is pretty good from 0-60 its a little slower getting up to 70. I have needed to replace the fuel pump which was a bit expensive but thats the only repair. Purchasing tires was relatively cheap, I payed 100 for all 4 tires. The exterior and interior are ok, not fancy just basic. I payed 1700 for it with 60,000 miles. Its a good car for getting around town and its ok on the highway. I would recommend it if you are looking for a car with good gas mileage

    Pros: 30 mpg

    Cons: size

    The Geo Metro Is Driver Friendly. — geo metro 3-cyl. are great, if, you understand momentum, and staying on top of your RPM, through your gearing. with only 61 horses, it's all about not dogging your engine. I just three days ago, ran Ashland mountain on hy.-5, at a steady 70 MPH.

    Reliable Value — This car was awesome and surpassed 150,000 miles with little maintenance and 1 major repair. I took this car everywhere(through streams and mountainsides) in various conditions and had fewer problems than cars built for extreme conditions. This car has great gas mileage and has great utility. Not an "impressive" car, but it's hard to beat its value and versatility.

    Pros: Great gas mileage, easy to steer and park, has good speed and acceleration, surprising
    durability and accessibility to different driving conditions and terrains.  Surprising amoutn
    of cargo room.  

    Cons: Small car and unimpressive if you need a "nice" car to boost your ego.  Best if load kept
    light with no more than 2 people.
