Does a 1997 Geo Metro transmission have overdrive after 35 mph?

If you are speaking of the automatic transmission, no. The 1997 geo metro has a 3 speed automatic. At approximately 35 mph it will shift from 2nd to 3rd gear. This means that it will run at 3500 rpm when traveling at 55 mph. Most cars with overdrive will shift to the 4th gear (overdrive) at this point. A geo metro, which only has 3 gears, does not.
