    Mark: I was simply stating that I had saw a junked '15 listed, nothing more :) .

    Eggman: Well, as I've been driving my Metros for the past few months it hasn't been necessarily bothering me.

    Though I saw a '15 and '17 in junkyard inventories since the last post in all this time I've seen none with the manual controls.

    In this instance wouldn't it be more headache, as we would both be buying cars across the border? Wallythacker I'll contact you :) .


    I have not yet sourced a parts car, so this today is great...

    Do I wish I bought a Spark: No. Never even made my shortlist.
    Never could get over how bug eyed their headlights looked. If I we're closer to California getting a Spark EV might have been a remote...

    Yes 17 km/L would've been good then, in the prime era of 7L V8's. I don't think anything could get to 50 mpg(21.25 km/L) until the original Honda CVCC.

    I don't think I've seen one of those on the...

    89-94 were the same with a refresh in 92. 95-01 were the same with a refresh in 98.

    I am stumped at this question except maybe the Wrangler which I know little of. Wanted to say corolla though...

    No that wasn't extra traction, lol. It was pretty hard rubber, retroactive LRR anyone? Also, as I later noticed the sidewall had a slight bulge in one spot... I will say I only ever dared go over 60...

    Don't worry! Looks perfectly fine.

    My first Metro came with some 20 y/o oem tires, one of which had good tread and still held air. Being young and ignorant I ran it for nearly 10K miles. Still...

    Maybe, but by its very nature that is a once in a lifetime situation.

    Good blog post, Subcompact Culture!



    That should be such common sense, and is a base truth to me. Guess that's my 3/8th of german ancestry talking :) . If you can't buy with cash it is simply...

    Having 6k miles driven in 4 months total, and garaged the rest of it's life I doubt it's dirty. Unless there's a mouse nest like mentioned, though I never smelled mouse in it.

    I'll be sure to...

    You know I like that idea. The thick key was a gripe of mine and out of habit unlocked the doors manually anyway usually. Once I get driving it again I'll keep my $4 metal key on my keychain and do...

    Wow that's sad. If I was to buy another in the future I think I'd get a Purple 17 G4 like that. The Sapphire blue is a nice color though :) .

    As I cling to my old Symbian OS smartphone I just assumed it wouldn't work for me. I can set it to mass storage mode which would make it functionally a thumb drive.

    Bigger question is why bother...

    Want to meet up and go for a drive with me? I got 54 avg without extreme measures or aeromodding. Even driving faster getting you to 45 should be easy.

    If I have to cycle my wipers more than once running lights come on.
    Headlights come on once I hit the minimum intermittent interval, assuming in daytime.

    IMO, based on your pic I'd have running...

    The Mirage is a fine car. I think my old Metros are more enjoyable and are just as reliable and fuel efficient. But for new cars offered today the Mirage does stand out as a top pick for sure.

    The Geo Prizm is clearly a compact.

    The G4 is 3 inches shorter and 1 inch more narrow yet is a subcompact.

    Unless the cutoff is 66x170 inches just above the size of the G4 or something that...
