Don't Hate on the Metro
Pros: Gas mileage, price, safety/maneuverability, lots of usable space- hatchback
Cons: Nothing worth mentioning. The pros outweigh any cons.
The Bottom Line:
I recommend this car due to the great gas mileage, maneuverability, low cost, good amount of space in back with seat folded down.
I have been driving my Chevy Metro LSI since August 2002. I have driven it from Los Angeles to Chicago, from Chicago to St. Louis and all kinds of other places. I have to commute 1 1/2 hours- 2 hours each way to work 5 days a week and still love my car. Some people say this car has no pick-up. I would like to suggest that maybe it's not the car, but the driver. My car goes 85mph with no problem, although I do not recommend going that fast in a car the size of a roller skate. That's too much to expect from an airbag. But it is not safe for you, or others on the road, to drive that fast in an Expedition either, so whatever. If you are a good, safe driver this car is probably safer than most because it is very maneuverable! I have done all of these road trips with no seat cover and haven't had a problem with my back hurting, but if that was an issue I would suggest investing $50 in ergonomic seat covers/cushions. For the low cost of the car, and the money it saves on gas, a $50 investment for the health of your spine does not seem that unreasonable.
