    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

    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
