Awesome Car — I LOVED my Colt, it was a burnt orange/brown. It was affectionately called "the turd" by pretty much my whole high school, but it was my phone that rang when my friends cars were broke down. This car had WELL over 200,000 miles on it when I got it, and the only problems I had were normal wear and tear. The only major thing was the front end wouldn't hold an alignment, but Sam's Wholesale loved me cause I bought 2 new tires about every 6 months. When this car was taken from me (by well meaning grandparents) I was driving it about 60 miles one way about 2 or 3 times a week. The man that bought it drove it about 20 mile one way to work daily for years. OH how I wish I still had that car. I look for one for sale all the time.

Pros: Great on gas, easy to work on, hard to dent,

Cons: hard to find parts,  really can't think of any, kind of a tight fit for 10 people(but it can be done)
