I BOUGHT A Geo Metro For $300 And FIXED It In ONE DAY

Not only did I buy a Geo Metro, I bought the rare XFi trim with the best fuel mileage. It was rated the Most Fuel Efficient Vehicle In America for it's entire production run. This Geo Metro was $300 as the owner said it was broken but Tyler had no issues driving it to my house. Once we got it home I cleaned it up with Gabe, then we fixed in a few minutes and went out to get 1/4 mile times from it. It only cost $50 to fix, and only takes 17 seconds to do 60mph. At least it was easy to sell, I posted it and it was paid for in less than 10 minutes.

    Swifts always had the 4 cylinder while the Metros had 3 until they redesigned the body style. Then it was the base engine and you could opt for the 4 cylinder. If I'm not mistaken the 4 cylinder was the same as the Ford Fiestas had. 1.3 liter.

    Put a full roll cage in the thing, set it up as a rally car and use it in Gorman, Ca. Find a co-pilot willing to lose every rally but think about how many folks will celebrate you at least trying. I've seen one for several years trying the Hi Desert Rally and even the Gorman Ridge Rally.

    Bought a xfi brand new in 1989 for 7800 dollars off the showroom floor at chevy. No mirror on passenger side and no ac for mileage i got 58 mpg. In 5 years of ownership I never had any issues only had to unclog the egr valve. On 2012 i bought a red convertible at the height of the gas crunch it was 20 years old I drove a 124 miles round trip 6 days a week and for 2 years never had to do anything but change the oil. In 2014 I boight a 2001 honda insight and still have my convertible geo today. Great dependable cars only issue is safety as they were made so light. Very underrated cars. The xfi had a special cam for superior mileage . My red convertible and most 3 cylinder geos wrre rated at 48 yo 50 mpg. My 20 year old red convertible ran for around 60000 miles over 2 years and still runs fine today as I sat back and my co workers laughed at me yet they were all constantly fixing there late model cars living within a stones throw to work.

    I started out with the chevy sprint and owned 2 of the. One pushed 55mpg. Then bought a geo metro think it was a 92. Gutted it and got like 50mpg. My next one will be 2000's metro. If there is one thing anyone knows about these. It's that the suzuki 1.0l g10 engine is one of the easiest and most bomb proof 3 cylinder engines ever. I have a deep love for the suzuki swift. In all its forms. Not the safest car. But fun.

    a car with 155/80/12 tires, but yet my golf cart has 255/40/12 DOT tires. the only thing the police can come up with as to why i can't drive it on the streets is "the tires are too small" so given I've got plenty of wheel gap I can just throw on some geo metro wheels and tires and be set

    I had my geo metro for 15 years. Ran perfect never had any problems. 45+ mpg, 52 best mpg. Tires never wore and oil change was 2 1/4 quarts. So easy to maintain, new tires cost $25 a piece new. Wish I still had it. There was a line of people who wanted to buy it from me.

I never got good gas milage because car was underpowered and I was always shifting gears above 4000 rpm to keep up with Honda civics in the traffic 😂. But it was so much fun to drive.

    Blast the underside of the car with old motor oil to halt the corrosion. Don't bother with undercoating, it just traps moisture and accelerates the rust. Bonus points if you melt some beeswax toilet gaskets into it before you blast it on.
