Mint 400-Mile 2000 Chevy Metro Needs A New Home9
Bring-A-Trailer is an online car auction site that typically deals in the rare and wonderful. Looking for a clean vintage Porsche 911, or perhaps a classic off-roader like the Toyota Land Cruiser FJ60? Then Bring-A-Trailer is probably your best bet. However, the site will sometimes also host auctions for obscure cars that may not be particularly valuable or desirable – like this extremely low-mileage 2000 Chevy Metro, for example.
According to the auction listing, this 2000 Chevy Metro has just 400 miles on the odometer. It was initially delivered to Martin Chevrolet of Torrance, California and remained with its original owner for over 20 years before the selling dealer acquired it this year. It’s not clear why it was driven so sparingly, but it’s common for older, unremarkable vehicles with low mileage like this to be owned by elderly drivers.
This car was ordered in a very rental car-like spec consisting of a gloss white exterior with black plastic bumpers and 13-inch wheels with plastic wheel covers. This model year of Metro was powered by a 1.0-litre three-cylinder engine producing 55 horsepower, with this particular example featuring the standard five-speed manual transmission. Despite this being a bare-bones commuter car, it comes fairly well equipped, boasting a CD player, AM/FM radio, a rear window defogger, a digital clock and a folding rear bench seat.
The original buyer of this Chevy Metro shelled out $11,140 for it, and considering the auction is already at $18,200 with three days to go, we wouldn’t be shocked if it sold for about twice its original MSRP.

yep, the junk yard
I had a 1996, 4 door sedan. Mine was the little 4 cylinder, 5 speed manual. One of the single best cars I’ve ever owned. Consistently got 48-50 mpg on the highway but only with the windows closed and the a/c turned off. Engaging the a/c would bring the little 1.3 liter right to it’s knees on even the slightest of uphill grades. It amused me honestly. I always babied it and recognized it for what it was. I miss that little car. I sold it with 90k miles on the odometer to a buddy who used it as a highway commuter for years before he wore it out and scrapped it. That car was so easy to work on. I miss the simplicity of those cars. Makes you actually wonder if we’re moving in the right direction when a car that would be 25 years old today achieved better fuel mileage than anything but a hybrid on the road today, costing 3 times what that little Metro cost. Progress?? Eh……..
Better then gm current lineup id drive it.
It has been my experience any time you see an odometer where the numbers are not perfectly lined up it has been adjusted. Come on man, 400 miles.
I still have my 95 Metro. Such a cool car! Can get as much as 48 mpg. They last a long time with a bit of love.
keep it forever…. we never know with this electric trend….
I’m going to try to bid on this. I won’t go above 20k though.
… it is a beautiful car… it is not like today …
It shares a lot of design cues with the Cavalier from that era. Maybe the guys from Suzuki helped with the design of the last American Cavalier?
