Do you still have a Metro? (I've still got 3.5 of them. Thinking about culling the herd.)

That's easy to answer!

We bought the Accent for my wife back in 2015. I work at the Hyundai Factory in Montgomery, so I get pretty big discounts on new cars. We picked this one up cheap and she can't drive a stick.

It was soley her car (and the car we used on trips) till last year, while I alternated between my Metro(s), Miata, truck, etc. Last October our first child was born, so I decided I wanted her in something bigger. I found her a Saab 9-7x suv. Since then, I've "inherited" the Accent as my daily. It works out perfectly for me because I get "preferred parking" for driving a Hyundai.

My username actually refers to a Chevy Lumina Z34.

As for Metros: I am down to 1 Metro and 2 Swift GTs. None are setup for fuel economy.

I had a very nice 00 Metro 16valve I had been using as my daily driver, but I stopped driving it once I got the Accent, so I sold it last week.
