Nice job with the metro; I'm very impressed. I've started taking 1200+ mile trips on weekends for business, and I'd really like to find a 3cyl Metro.

While I wouldn't mind repairing it as things break if I were driving it around town, I can't exactly walk home when I'm 500 miles from home. Given your experience, what should I replace/repair immediately after buying a Metro before trying to take it on a long trip?
