To bump the city MPG up, weight reduction could be key.

Will you be able to bear losing the passenger, and maybe the back seat as well?

Some people on here say: belong to an Auto Club for flat tire help, and chuck your spare, and the jack. I wouldn't, but that is sharing common info!

A Honda Civic does sound like the ticket, unless you can drive mellow most all the time whereas an early '90's Metro is awesome.

I have heard that manual transmissions in them can be troublesome.

That is probably due to HOW they were treated, rather than a broad brush stroke
of put-down.
