One thing I would say, They take their sweet time to get back to you. Specially if you try to make an Inquiry on the dealer webpage. I don't think Mr. Murgado is fully aware of this situation. I myself requested a price on a used BMW 128i. I forgot how long ago and I am still waiting. Mr. Murgado has to clean house and soon better then later.

My mom bought this car in 2008 for $1500.00 withonly 30,000 miles on it, she drove it for 3 years, then gave it to me in 2010. I drove it up until March 2014 and it now has a little less than 90K miles. I have never had an expensive, deal breaking issue with it. The only real issues I have had is the headlights are very tricky and wiring kind of sucks, and on a cold -10 degree morning in Alaska, it makes squealing sounds. Other than that it has been an excellent car and very dependable and sturdy. Great gas mileage, could have probably last me another 2 years at the least.

Can be fun and reliable!

This is my first Geo Metro ever and to be honest i wasn't happy at first when i bought it. Although it grows on you when you get such killer gas mileage and it never breaks down on you. I have a lsi 4cyl 5-speed and i think it's pretty fun to drive and easy to repair. I would recommend this car to anyone if you can stand to not drive the most flashy thing on the streets.

I bought my first Geo from a friend and fell in love, now 7 years and almost 300,000 miles later it has finally started dying on me. But I love my little putt-putt so much I managed to find another one identical to her with only 100,000 miles on it. These are great little cars and I hate that they are no longer made. Geo had a great product, maybe that's why chevy bought them cause they were scared? (97 Geo Metro 4dr Sedan 1.3 L 4 cyl) and yes they made 4 cyl in 97 contrary to some car parts places.

This is a good car, if, you're fortunate enough not to get a lemon. It seems that the geo is an extremely good or extremely poor purchase. If you have one, here's some advice: Don't dog it, it's all about using your gears, I climbed Mt. Ashland at 75 mph, since it's a roller skate, the trick is momentum.

Shouldn't quit making them

This car, if you don't dog it, will pull its weight, it's all about the gearing

Best car I ever owned. Very reliable, gas efficient and easy to maintain. Never had any major repairs - car just kept going. Chevy made a big mistake when they decided to discontinue them.

I've loved this car!

This is the 2nd Geo Metro (Chevy Sprint) I've driven to over 200,000 miles. I've only had to do routine maintenance and this car is still running on many of the original parts, including engine and clutch. Still gets over 44 mpg. It might be the fastest or most stylish car on the road but I'd buy another in a heartbeat if they were still making them. It's ridiculous to have pay over $20,000 to get a new car that equals the fuel efficiency of this old one. What's wrong with this picture?

Well, after 112,000 mile a bad oil leak repair finally killed her, but what a great, cheap car. Up until the last gasp, this car never broke down--I did replace an axel & had some brake work done, but for the first four years nothing but oil changes. I bought this car used with about 40000 miles on it. It was awesome on gas and you could fit a ton of stuff in the hatchback. I'm replacing her with a 2004 Hyundai accent sedan, which is safer, but I'll miss my metro. It was an automatic transmission, and I've never had to repair it. If you are on a budget and can find a clean one with > 80k miles, I say go for it.

Great car!!

I think these little cars are the ultimate comute car. I put in 30-40K a year and they keep on going. They are a great low maintenance car. I have 142,000 miles and I've done nothing to fix this car yet. Just new plugs (twice), tires, brakes (twice). I don't even change the oil but every 3-6 mos (9k-18k miles for me) this is my 2nd hatch back but my third metro and I just bought a 2001 for $3800 w/ only 28,000 mi on it. I figure it will go at least another 100,000 miles (that's only 4 cents a mile to own) It's just too bad that chevy stopped making them. I'm currently looking for low mileage 2001 to park / store until I need them.

a pretty good small car

the seats in this car killed my back, but other than that it was cheap to keep . so that is allways a good thing cheap tires, low payment, the only complaint was not comfortable to drive on long trips,

This is the 3rd Geo I have had. I enjoy the excellent gas mileage and the peace of mind that I get when I start it up every day. I know it will always start for me and perform. I bought it used, to help off set the gas consumption of my 99 Silverado. It is easy to tune and oil change. I would recommend it to anyone needing a 2nd dependable car. The after market parts are very expensive.

as far as inexpensive, bought a 97 in 99 for $4500 4 door automatic/air cond...it gets the mileage and has gone from 32k miles to over 88k without complaints..had to put in $100 for air conditioner charge but other than that i am smiling all the way...so what is there to complain about??? it ain't a mercedes, but then again, you ain't paying the payment!!!

In terms of achieving my goal, this car has more than met it. I wanted an interim, inexpensive, small, dependable car I could load my keyboard & amp in & out of with relative ease. For 5 years it’s consistently done the job. Tires, hubcaps, & rear axle have been replaced. After the first year (’98) I had no air conditioning because the frion ran out. But the heater works great & the gas hikes haven’t phased me- -I’m still paying less per month than I do for cable TV. It’s a great little car with surprisingly good pick-up, no slowing on hills, easy on the turns, but tough to park without power steering.

Good A to B and B to A car

For a 3 cylinder car, it is pretty decent. I want to know when the spark plugs have to be changed. I have about 70,000 clicks on it. Does this car use platinum plugs? I bought this secondhand at about 35,000 km.. I recently changed the air filter on it. I'd appreicate any input from similar owners on its upkeep. There is no a/c on mine. I am having a problem with the heating switch that I have to wiggle to make it operate at low speed. I live in Toronto and I need the heat in winter.

Great Little Car

Bought the car used in 1999 for $6900 with 36000 miles. I can't seem to get the max fuel economy out of it (even after tune up). It has never had any major mech problems.

In the 2 years I've owned my Geo I have had no problems beyond worn out wiper blades. It runs smoothly and I the auto-transmission gearing is just right to pull out ahead of the crowd at the stoplights. It accelerates smoothly and quickly on the uphill to over 65 MPH on the freeway. My overall MPG was good before at 32, and now even better since a tuneup.

I have had in the past ten years 8 cars. I have had fords,dodge, chevrolets, saab,volkswagon,etc.I was looking for a cheap dependable car to get me too and from college and work and around town. I have taken at least 5 or more trips in it so far with mile ranges of 200 to 1000 miles a weekend. The car gets excellent gas mileage, and I have had no problems exept for normal wear and tear ie:new tires.
