20 Years Old, Still Looks Great, Never Left Me Stranded Yet. Wish I Had Two Of Them. — I love this thing! Owned since new (graduation gift in 1990 w/ 7 miles on it) now with 263,785 original engine & turbo! It just won't die. Drive this more then my 2005 Superchared V-8 Jaguar, definitely more fun! I've owned over sixty cars and this is the only one I've held onto over the years. 20 years of drving her and she still makes me smile. Find one and drive it, you'll understand what I'm talking about as soon as you release the clutch.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Great car, awesome handling, oscillating A/C vents!

Cons: Expensive and hard to find GLASS headlights.

If You Can Find One With Low Miles And In Good Body Shape..... Buy It! Then Run Good. — I all-around love this car. The turbo makes it snappy and gives you the power when it's needed, but if driven conservatively with give you great gas mileage. As long as the oil is changed regularly and all the belts, fluids, and hoses are kept good and up to date it has ran like a top with no major mechanical problems. Other than the lack of cup holders and leg room for people over 6 foot + the interior is great and very functional.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: FAST!!!!, good gas mileage, easy to maintain

Cons: Torgue steer, turbo lag, lack of leg room

T-10 Seconds To Liftoff — The successor to the die hard Ford Escort, it was picked up from a family friend on the cheap. Told it had a clean bill of health. I was lied to. On it'd first drive to school on a slightly chilly morning it could have been mistaken for an F-14 on afterburners. The smoke cloud was huge, potentially calling in tribes from all over the nation. A new motor and a year or so later I sold it when stupid problems started to arise.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It had a moonroof.  The previous owner left a Mag light and a pair of Oakleys in the car. Oscillating vents.

Cons: It started to fall apart quicker than the mir space station

1990 Mazda Mx6 — Best car i ever had. The way it handled was so good. So much grip. The speed was there when i wanted it and the responce was out of this world. She was slim line,tinted windows, great vision all round. Didnt look like a beast at the lights but she held her own! Hot! Loved driving her!

Pros: Everything

Cons: Got bored leaving people at the lights!

Great, Reliable Car, Good Power For A 2.2 |4 — The one I had was old and ugly, but it ran strong for 220.000 miles until the timing belt snapped, it was an interference head and I wasn't going to spend $1500 to fix it when I paid $200 for the car. Definitely get this car in a 5 spd.

Pros: Fuel efficient, great in snow, nice stream lined appearance, comes in a turbo model, easy maintenance accessibility.

Cons: not much interior room, no cup holders (just a minor inconvenience), FWD (no chance of drifting in this car, if that's your style)

Great 1st Car — I was amazed at the low miles and condition of this car when I saw the ad for it on Craigslist. Paid $1100 for the car and have fallen in love with it. Sure it isn't all that fast, can be a bit noisy, and also has a few issues but all are minor and again, am not complaining because it was such a cheap car to purchase. Also, parts are very cheap and reasonable overall cost, very economical yet fun to drive.

Pros: Styling, handling, ride, features

Cons: A bit noisy and a bit underpowered (non-turbo)
