I just bought a 1992 geo metro convertible at a garage sale. After I bought it I had to replace the rear brakes and brake drums, and now I have to replace the rear wheel bearings and spacers. I’m trying to figure out if I should sell the car after I get that done. I wanted to get a car for my 16 year old to learn to drive a stick shift on, but I’m thinking I may have bought a lemon. I bought it for $2,300, and put $1,000 for new brakes and am looking at another $500 for bearings.
Also, I wonder if I could have my son replace the wheel bearings. Or should I go to the mechanic?
