"Other cars have quirks. This one has only personality and going across country after 150,000 miles in another car is scary but in the Geo Metro it's romantic."

"Owned since '98. Virtually trouble-free. Used town & highway. Hatchback increases length, size of items that can be transported. 85% satisfaction. Easy to maneuver & accelerates well. Power steering (for parking, etc.), better suspension (for long highway trips) & rear wipers would've made it 95%."

"I have had my Geo Metro Hatchback now for almost 17 years with only 101,000 km...it has NEVER let me down, and the repairs over the years have been normal maintenance, and the odd other repair. This car has MORE than paid for itself and is still going strong. It is a 4 cyl so has a little more pep. My mechanic is amazed at its condition. I bought it new and I would HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend this car for anyone looking for reliability and economy. GREAT LITTLE CAR. :)"

i hit a deer lol

"I love all of the cars that Geo made but my fav is the Metro. I woundn't trade mine for anything i feel if more people drove them then they would save a lot of money. My reasons gas gas gas! on average i get about 43mpg but i have a 1997 Geo Metro 3 door hatchback 5 speed 1.0Lt 3 cylender Base model (Named Matty). But if you cant believe that the 1994 Geo Metro xfi gets 43mpg city and 52mpg highway. That is better than a smart car (which gets 40mpg), and the Toyota prius (which gets 50mpg). Thats not bad for a car that is 18 years old. Another part of this car i love is the way it drives. My Geo has no power steering so i feel everything on the road and my gas, break and clutch are very sensitive. I recommend this car to all my friends and family."

"I owned this car for ten years before it got rear ended. I wish I had kept it and tried to fix it. It was the three cylinder and had the best gas mileage ever. I once drove from Washington, DC to Columbus, Ohio on one tank of gas; 570 miles on 10.1 gallons! It got 38 mpg on a bad day. It had 165,000 miles on it, I had to put in a new transmission at only 20,000 miles, and I had just put in new bearings, timing chain and valves when it was hit. If it hadn't been hit I'm sure it would have lasted another 100,000 easily."
