To anyone who might know or who has bought a Metro....
Where did you find it?
I have been all over the local paper, craigslist, driving around old neighborhoods, etc and can not find one locally.
I have asked around but everyone laughs at me! UGH! My landlord wants one too but after a year still hasn't found one for himself as well!
Also, I would love to get an XFi. Which years are the best for those or what year whas the best for any Metro?
I found mine by chance on www.usedregina.com . Just look at autotraders, papers, etc, and you'll find one eventually. I'd stongly suggest getting a 1996 and up model because of their ScanGauge compatibility (and the 2000 models have a much easier to beat EPA rating than earlier models).
Never thought about autotrader! Nice. Also never heard of usedregina? I'll give it a shot!
Thanks for the tips on getting a 96 or newer. Have to save up a little bit more for those but will be a lot easier to find.
As far as rust. Cars in my area have very little as long as the paint is good. The BEST place I ever lived for clean rust free cars was Las Vegas. I had a neighbor that sanded the paint off of the hood of his truck and 3 weeks later there was only the slightest bit of rust flash!!!!!! If I tried that here in the swaps of new Orleans it would be completely covered in 24 hours!
I found mine by word of mouth. My brother knew someone trying to sell one that needed work. Other than that, I rarely see them around my area if at all. If I do, it is an auto, a 4cyl, or is way over priced. I've been keeping my eye out for another one since I like mine so much, but no luck. I did see an xfi in a parking lot at the local grocery store and was tempted to leave a note asking if they were interested in selling it.
In other words, they are hard to come by in my area.
Best tank= 81.23 mpg on july 1st 2008
SAVE SOME GAS, SAVE THE WORLD!
There's a '93 or '94 Xfi in a 'yard near me. I'm about to ask for a battery to try to start the car. It failed inspection in December of '06 (obviously) due to frame rust. Do you want anything out of the car? Transmission? ECU? Camshaft? Let me know.
