Everyone has seen one of these or knew someone who had one. The Geo Metro was for a long period of time the cheapest car on the road. It was fairly common and had a three-cylinder engine. But what made the Metro extremely unique was the fact that it was one of the most reliable compact cars ever built. The repairs are almost minimal with these cars and there are still dozens of them on the road (via US News).
The Geo Metro is a great example of simple engineering done right. The car had all the things that made it a hit and now it has become a cultural icon. You’ll definitely see this car on the road for many years to come. It offered the right blend of reliability and economy that made it a great choice for a new generation of car shoppers.
