All of the above applies to models of Metro Austin Mini, which debuted in October 1980 and was intended to replace the Austin Mini, produced from 1959 (hence the "insert" Mini in the title), but, despite its undeniable advantages over Austin Mini, and could not change the access to the valves for their adjustment, and the adjustment itself is very simple and easy.
Austin Metro has excellent maneuverability in town and on winding roads, the stability on the move, thanks to the precise and easy steering rack and pinion type.
Last but not least "guilty" in the enjoyment of the ride Austin Metro, a very comfortable suspension Hydragas type wheels, in which an elastic element wheel suspension is filled with an inert gas chamber, and communicating with it through an aperture other chamber (filled with ethanol and distilled water in a ratio of 50 to 50, nearly vodka, plus a corrosion inhibitor) plays the role of shock absorber. Springs, leaf springs, hydraulic shock absorbers at the Austin Metro is not, which means that the suspension will not sink from "fatigue" of springs and it is not necessary every 50,000 km to replace the hydraulic shock absorbers: the care it requires.
