"I bought my 1996 Geo Metro used from a co-worker who was moving to Hawaii. I was apprehensive about the purchase as the car looked so cheaply made. I used this car as a primary vehicle for years. Now it is a back up vehicle when my luxury car is in the shop. My luxury car seems to always be in the shop--yet my little Geo Metro is always rearing to go. It is an amazing little car always starts, has never had to have anything repaired in the 8 years I have owned it. All I have done is change the oil and put new tires on it. An incredilbe value."
"This car is the only car I've had to buy since I got my license at 16. It has never failed me driving (I had a small brake issue once but I could still stop fine). I never had to do anything but routine maintenance on it. The only problem is, the exhaust tends to go out every two years in snowy weather. Other than that, it may be a little short on space, but with the back seat folded down, I could always haul what I needed to haul. If I could buy a new one of these 3 cyl. Metros or Swifts (I own the Geo Metro) I would do it without even having to think twice. The used ones are just as good. My family has owned this car since it was in the 30,000's (it's a 95 model). Now it has 107,000 (miles) and the engine runs like never before. The engine has NEVER failed even once. Great car. I personally put over 36,000 miles on it. Best car ever for snow."
