Search is your friend, but locating it on here amongst the other Metros will be a challenge.

Crud! I meant to copy the ad text & photos here for posterity (because they disappear when the ad is removed...)

But the car is sold! Ad removed.

I will resave the bigger versions if these don't turn out well i can just send them to you using another method and you can mod them in a better way. New computer without my editing programs

Craigslist images don't go away as far as I know. These should still work:

1995 GEO METRO 3CYL 1.0L A/C 50MPG CITY!!! - $2200 (Gainesville)

Date: 2012-10-15, 11:42AM EDT
Reply to: kvbpk-3311098188@sale.craigslist.org [Errors when replying to ads?]

1995 Geo Metro 185K miles. This is the 3 cylinder model 1.0L engine 5 speed, very hard to find the 3 cylinder. Amazing on gas! 50MPG city driving in Gainesville. And the A/C works.

Has had the following done within 3K miles

-New belts
-New spark plugs, wires, dizzy cap, and button
-Air filter
-Thermostat
-Temp sensor
-Gear box oil change (full synthetic)
-Oil change 200 miles ago (full synthetic)
-Tint

The car runs great and needs nothing. Yes it looks a bit odd but it gets the same or better gas mileage as a Prius for a fraction of the cost. I intended to keep the car for the next few years but I am being deployed next month which is the only reason i'm selling it. I did all the aerodynamic mods to increase fuel efficiency, they can be removed.

Call or text me anytime Dexter 850-four 9 9 - 5 nine 1 3 no emails please. $2,200 OBO
