    Handles All Day, Sips Gas, Kinda Sucks. — Good first car, sips on gas, and handles all day long. Very fun to drive, quick off the line if running correctly. I inherited it at 185,000 miles or so, and had to replace the engine and transmission once, the rear-main seal twice (torque converter kept warping, hence tranny replacement), and the motor mount once (it shakes like a polaroid picture while idling). Fun nonetheless, brakes pretty well.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Good gas mileage, great handling, light weight.

    Cons: Ford, needs a turbo or two

    Totally Trustworthy, Won't Let You Down. — Solid, reliable and quick off the mark. A joy to drive, plenty of legroom and economical on fuel. Great for nipping to the shops or long haul up and down the motorway. Great handling, really fun to drive. Get one!

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Cheap to run and fix :)

    Cons: VERY Common, no individuality here.

    Great Car For A High Schooler Or College Student. — Not the greatest looking car, but it was really durable and dependable. Also, great gas mileage. Couldn't have asked for a better car, engine wise. Except there was no CD player.... which sucked. haha But Oh well. Fill in words.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Gas mileage & dependability.

    Cons: Not great looking and getting older.

    Nothing Wrong With It. — The car runs like its brand new. There is nothing wrong with it. I purchased the car in June 2009. There hasnt been any repairs yet. There is no rust on it for a ten year old car. When purchased it had only 52K. The car drives smooth and it has been very dependable.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Its an awesome drive

    Cons: There is no door locks on the inside and no power windows.

    Not A Bad Little Car — Another good commuter. Good mpg's. Blew up at 170,000 miles. A little premature I thought! Dead reliable till then. Made 2 trips to NY and many miles to and from work. A little cramped on the long trip though. I would buy another if I could find one cheap.
