This is a question Cars

"Here in my car", said 80s pop hero Gary Numan, "I feel safest of all". He obviously never shared the same stretch of road as me, then. Automotive tales of mirth and woe, please.

Never drive a Geo Metro.
Sure, they’re inexpensive, you can lift them with one hand and unscrew the lug nuts with your fingers if you need to change a tire, but they don’t get that great of gas mileage, they’re uncomfortable, girls think they’re mong-mobiles, err, REALLY ugly, and they have no crumple zones so when some yuppy hits you from behind your lower back takes all the energy (1 ½ years of physical therapy from that one).

It eventually died and was replaced with a lovely Jeep Grand Cherokee. Oh, and Geo Metros cannot climb mountains or get through a Minnesota winter.

My 7' tall ex...
...drove a Geo Metro. He had to break the driver's seat just to fit in.

Cheap asshole...

I understand - I'm 6'2 and there are many cars that I have a bad fit in
The Passat does well and the Jeep equally. I heard basketball star Wilt Chamberlain paid $400k for a custom sports car that he could fit inside. Otherwise, he drove a convertible.

For those of us on the other side of the Atlantic...
...the Geo Metro is known as the Suzuki Swift.

And is still shit.
