1992 GEO METRO LSi CONVERTIBLE - Practical, Fun, and 50 Smiles Per Gallon

by
Jul 19, 2003 - Updated Apr 3, 2008 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Economical, practical, reliable, and sporty. Easy to drive, park, and fix. Super fun car.
Cons: Very small & hard to see in traffic. Subject of ridicule in rural America.
The Bottom Line: The perfect commuter/2nd car! 50 mpg, collectable, nice looking, easy to drive and fix, and well worth the small cost. It's hard to see among (and beyond) larger traffic, though.

First: some history for those researching these cars. In mid-1990, the little Geo Metro convertible arrived in Chevy showrooms thanks to America's reborn love for little roadsters, a direct result of the Mazda Miata that had been introduced only a ... read more

I love my Metro

by
Feb 15, 2002 (A Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Excellent gas mileage.
Cons: Doesn't ride like a Cadillac.
The Bottom Line: The car is as trouble free as it can be and gets excellent fuel economy.

I worked for quite a number of years in a automobile dealership and I always saw a lot of Metro's that other people owned. The one thing that was most consistent with most all of them is that they hardly ever broke down. For the most part, the only ... read more

Pros: Great Gas Mileage, Fits anywhere, Dependable

The Bottom Line: If you need good, cheap, well-made, reliable transportation, that can fit and go ANYWHERE then the Metro is the right car for you!!

I bought my Metro on December 1, 1999. It was basically my first car, and I bought it because I was given $1,000 to go out and buy a car with, and the Metro was about my only option. I fell in love with my baby on day one. Over the year that ... read more

Pros: Low total cost of ownership, high mileage, easy to maintain.
Cons: Low power, flimsy interior parts

The 1992 Geo Metro XFi is the mileage king, heck, it even beats the mileage of the brand new Metros which now come with a 4 cylinder engine. I bought this car for the low cost, high mileage and hatchback space. My mileage checks from work ... read more

Author's Product Rating: 40 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Around 41mpg with the automatic trans Handling
Cons: Sense of vulnerability Accelleration when loaded with gear
The Bottom Line: Don't buy it for your teenager. However, for the adult looking to cut their gasoline consumption in half this vehicle or a new hybrid is a perfect choice.

This car has always started up for me and consistently delivered excellent gas mileage. For commuting to work or running errands around town it has been wonderful, especially when available parking spots are short or narrow. Okay, so the body integrity ... read more

Pros: It's reliable, affordable and gets great gas mileage

With gas prices as high as they are today, the Geo Metro LSi convertible is a fun and economical way to get to and from work. This is the car I wish I had when I was a college student -- it's cheap to drive and it's a lot of fun. This is not ... read more

You Drive a What?

by
Aug 21, 2000 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 40 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: great gas mileage, needs little maintenance
Cons: not the most muscular car ever built

To drive a Geo Metro is to wear a Badge of Honour—only the bravest of the brave need apply. It is not a perfect car. It isn’t flashy. It won’t win you any admirers. If you were looking for a prestige car, you wandered into the wrong storybook. It is ... read more

Pros: gas mileage, runs good
Cons: small

We have an older Metro, when it was still called Geo. We have a 1992. Our Metro has lasted through many a storm, many many many miles (130,000), and it is still running like a dream. We have had to do regular stuff, like new tires and brakes, but our ... read more

Pros: maintains well, drives forever

I bought my Metro new in 1992. The main reason i bought the car is because it fit my price range. It is now almost 8 years and 140,000 miles later and the car is still going. I love the mileage it still gets, and that it is a low maintenance vehicle. I ... read more

Author's Product Rating: 30 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: rebuttal to misinformation campaign
Cons: I'm not very tolerant of misinformation

Hi folks, One of the popular reviews on this vehicle is written by someone extremely uninformed about cars in general, and his name is "roadtripper". Not only does he lay blame on the car for simple and inexpensive repairs that he ... read more

Author's Product Rating: 30 Recommended: No 

Pros: Mechanically ok...
Cons: Aesthetically awkward

When I pick out a car, I want one I wear, not drive. I don't 'push' my clothes forward and I'm not going to experience the same thing when I'm driving. So when I test-drove a 92' Geo Storm I thought I had found it. It drove well, everything ... read more

Pros: fish can live right in the car!! no tank needed!!!
Cons: um...yeah...the water...the fish...
The Bottom Line: don't buy it... not practicle unless your 17, unreliable, the only thing it has going for it is that it's cute and different.

Bottom o' the food chain

by
Sep 1, 2002 - Updated Oct 5, 2002 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 10 Recommended: No 

Pros: Doesn't use much gas. Got me to work everyday.
Cons: SLOW, LOUD, LEAKY, DANGEROUS, AND TOTALLY LAME.
The Bottom Line: Unless you wish to learn a lesson in humility, discover the physics of SLOW, and risk your life everytime you drive, I suggest you avoid this monstrosity.

Ugh... In between the (temporary) death of my '87 Buick Skyhawk Turbo and the purchasing of my '84 BMW 318i was a span of about 2.5 months. I had a job in a bakery in Hastings, NE (30 miles away) during this period, and I needed a way to get to work. ... read more
