This Was A Cherry Of A Commuter. — Owned this car for 14 years and couldn't be more pleased. It got us from A to B very efficiently. It was my wife and I's first car purchase and has not let us down. It handled the addition of a couple of children just fine. Still has life left.

Pros: Fuel saver. Low cost maintenance.

Cons: None.

Great Commuter — Nothing flash, but everything is done right. The car has over 210000 miles on it and still runs like a top. I get almost 30 mpg combined and I don't have a light foot. Frankly this car will run forever if you take proper car of it, and probably even if you don't.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: MPG, Comfort, Reliability

Cons: None

Cheap Fuel Efficient, Reliable, Takes A Beating And Keeps On Ticking — underpowered, seems like eveerything build wise is just enought to keep them running. parts are cheap and you can find them everywhere. you take care of the car and the car will take care of you, nice car to blend in if you know what I mean...

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: great A to B car.

Cons: its a dog power wise

Buy It If U Get A Great Deal — amazing first car, i got it for 1500. it is amazing as a daily driver. you can tell it had small people in mind, i wish the seats were taller. at a red light, it accelerates quickly so i don't hesitate. the ride is nice but you feel every bump and i hate that.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: reliable and cheap transportation

Cons: the seats suck, a/c needs a minute to cool.

Loved This Car — Not the most powerful car but I loved everything else about it. Bought it new and traded it in with 116,000 miles. Always got me where I needed to go. 34 mpg normal driving. 39 mpg with mostly highway driving. Double wishbone suspension made it handle great. My favorite of all the cars i have owned. I regret trading it in when I did and wish I had kept it longer.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Reliability, Fuel economy, Price, handling, turn radius

Cons: none
