This Car Is Fun, Super Gas Saving, And Will Be Hilarious Once I Turbo It. —

I like how funny this car is to mess with people. It actually has some getup and go going from 0-50mph, however, once you pass even 40mph it's out of the competition, but it's still fun to play with, especially from a dead stop. Seeing how its only a 3cyl engine and only 1.0l it's power is quite good for the small size of the engine. The car only has 13in tires but there's definitely room for some nice 15's. I live in Maine and this car actually handles in the snow as good as a 2004 Ford Escape and better than most tuner cars. Hills KILL this car almost immediately, and even downshifting and punching it will cause acceleration to halt and even get slower on just medium sized hills. If you find a nice metro with low miles on it, I would say grab it, I paid 1300$ for mine and put 500$ into it, so 1,800$ for a car with only 50,000 on it that was a steal, not to mention 30$ will fill your 11 gallon tank and last atleast 400 miles and save you tons in gas. Overall, a fun, reliable, and awesome little car that is a great first car, or even a fun project that could leave you with a beast car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: GAS- I honestly get atleast 49mpg on the highway in 5th going 69mph, city is much lower though, about 39-41mpg but still awesome.
SPACE- ? You'd think the car is super tiny and cramped, but I'm 6'1 and I can fully stretch my legs in the front and back after adjusting the seats, but if you're above 6'2 you're not gonna be 100% comfortable.

Cons: FUEL SYSTEM- My car did this clunking/chugging thing and I had to buy a new fuel pump but it turns out the access port for the fuel tank isnt under the rear seats, you have to completly drop the fuel tank out, making a self replaced fuel pump impossible unless you have access and knowledge to weld. (The fuel system problem is common for metros that are over 10 years, which they all are.)
PARTS- The parts are slightly cheaper than most 4cyls made in the 90-00's except for the less common ones which can be near impossible to find, also there are fewer aftermarket parts to find for the metro.
NOISE- Highway driving is loud and the interior vibrates quite a bit, I do have a 2.5in exhaust tip which doesn't help but it was still loud on the inside before I put it on.

1999 Chevy Metro — This car has gone across country twice and I've had great gas mileage of around 44+ mpg while being fully loaded w/gear. These little cars don't offer a whole lot but great mileage but at $3.50 per gallon you save a bundle.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Outstanding fuel mileage of around 45-46 mpg. Has been a reliable car for many years and only 90k miles.

Cons: Little power especially, going up hills/mountains. But, that's the trade-off for the mileage.

My Car — i love that my car is sturdy. but i hate that it is dented and dinged among other things. it is great on gas and only takes $20-30 to fill tank. my car is extremely small but it is so fun to drive and is easy to back into parking spaces.

Pros: it is small and very good on gas

Cons: it could be bigger. it is only a 4 person car and i usually 5 people with me

Chevy Metro 3 Cylinder — It's slow, ugly and uncomfortable- but it gets 45 miles per gallon, never breaks down, and has plenty of room for dogs, with the back seat folded down. I'll be the first guy in the universe to restore a 1.0L Metro, someday!

Pros: mileage and reliability

Cons: acceleration and ride
