If you could have another option or feature in your Metro, what would it be? I often wish for colder ac, and sometimes I wish I had power windows. Fortunately, it is not a long reach to reach over and roll up the passenger window...

Good question. I'd have to say driver/passenger door air bags as a standard requirement. My 2nd choice would be tachs in all manual trans models.

Gosh, if only we knew someone who had been given an Esteem Cruise Control, with the "price" of writing a comprehensive How-To Guide on other parts/installation...

I agree. I'd even settle for 4 speed on the automatics.

Cruise would be nice, but I don't know how much I would use it. On my gasoline powered metros, I usually just use the accelerater stop for cruise.

when i first got the metro i was putting lots of miles on .... all the continental us and alaska, canada and mexico. i had cruise control installed. a nice convenience for those 600mi sprints! it had some hiccups which the installer corrected and finally gave up many years later. i don't travel like that now so haven't replaced it.

curiously the car came with an alarm system. pretty useless from my standpoint. sometimes i wanted a passenger power window but was more inclined toward a remote for the rear windows.
