A Nice Car, If You Dont Care What People See You Driving. — I dislike the lack of power. I do enjoy the small fuel tank and excellent fuel economy. Overall, a reliable vehicle for tooling around town or commuting to and from work. Not very good on the interstate, but excellent for in town driving.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: A small, fuel efficient, reliable vehicle. The low price tag makes it a perfect car for a high school student, or new college student.

Cons: Driving this vehicle makes me feel like a grandmother. It's gut-less and not very cool to be seen in.

One Of The Best Cars I've Ever Owned — She's got a few dings in the hood, suffered impact damage in the left fender (before I bought her) and in the left quarter panel (was I mad about that!), and for some reason she wants to rust out behind the rear wheel wells. She also needs a new engine, or at least the original rebuilt. Still, not bad for a 23 year old car that only has 85,000 original miles!

Pros: Good on gas, responsive steering, low mileage

Cons: Engine needs work, needed complete brake job including lines, so-so gas mileage

That Which Is No More... — By the time I bought it from my dad, he had managed to put 300,000 on it in the 4 years he owned it... and yet it just kept chugging along. That is, until some idiot ran a red light and T-boned me in an intersection and totaled the car. Funny thing... the insurance adjustment for the car itself was for more than my dad paid for the car 6 years earlier.

Pros: Cheap.

Cons: the usual beater complaints... that and it got totaled.
