Pros

Engine seems resilient, good gas mileage, minimum investment (purchase, insurance, upkeep)

Cons

Interior may not last, fairly crowded with 5 passengers (including driver), not much of a looker.

Good Car. — It was made to be inexpensive, but that what I like about it. Interior is not luxurious. 30 mpg, and not a muscle car, but light body so still zippy. Have had it for 55k miles and only non-maintenance repair was the alternator. It is fun to drive, especially with the standard tranny. Most would consider this an excellent commuter, but I use it for everything.

Great Warranty, Lowcostmaintenance — Too small, but well worth mpg ratings and low cost to maintain. Easy to maintain, parts easy to get. Would like more options like cruise control, but low purchase price is well worth the car you get in return for the money.

Good Car For A Great Price — For this price it is hard to find a reliable car like this. It is not the best looking car on the market, but it takes you wherever you want to. Fuel economy is great, extremely low maintenance costs. It has a new battery and a new radiator.

K-k-k-kia — Is a pretty decent car overall. I just bought it for $500. It has 100k on it and runs good. Everything works good on it. It may need a cv axle at some point soon but otherwise it is a good little car.

Good Reliable Car For The Cost. — Mom's car and she loves it. I have driven it on occassion and I too love it. It's small, but has good handling and with good tires is good in any weather. Highly reliable even with high mileage very comfortable.
