    Great, Amazing Car!!!!! — I have had the car for about 2 months. I bought it used from a private dealer and the car had a few things wrong, but nothing a car enthusiast like me couldn't handle. I paid $1,300 and was the best car I have bought so far.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Easy Maintence, Low cost parts, easy to find parts. Can do all the work yourself.

    Cons: Nothing to say thus far.

    No Thrills, No Frills And No Chicks. Not In This Car. — This car is merely functional. It just fills the gap between when you buy your very first beater, to when you get your first nice car that you can actually be proud of. This little guy, with it's powder blue color, was fit for a girl. And only a girl. But I had one. And I was embarrassed to drive it. That was the last time I ever let my dad do my car shopping for me. Sure, it was reliable. To a fault. I wanted this thing to start breaking down so I could get something better, but it just kept going. The few repairs were easy enough to do myself and didn't break the bank. I just hated this car because of its effeminate color and its complete lack of power or handling capability.

    Pros: Great mileage. Very reliable. Decent cargo capacity.

    Cons: Appalling lack of power. Mediocre handling. God-awful color. Lame styling.

    1996 Nissan Sentra Ga16de — It has good power for a standard 1600. Braking isn't the best but it does the job. It gets under steer around tight corners. It has a squeaky clutch and a few minor rattles. Its not a cool looking car but not ugly either which is good. Its cheap to run. Yea its pretty fun to drive sometimes. I would recommend this car to someone wanting something quick and cheap to run.

    Pros: Fast for a standard 1600, cheap to run.

    Cons: Boot is too big so doesn't have much leg room for backseat passengers.

    Leased Car That Was Quite Reliable — For what it cost me per month was a reliable stead and didn't look half bad.

    Pros: Roomy, pretty comfortable for around town driving, good mileage, not bad to look at

    Cons: A bit uncomfortable to drive long distance - seats a bit cheap (overall a good value though)
