    Great For A Student Or Recently Married To Buy — great car for a family, lots of room I think for me. Could go for something bigger but I'm getting almost 40 on the freeway. It is fun to drive and I cant wait to modify to get more power and better sound.

    If You Want Something Quick But Not To Fast Get One. — could be quicker nice wheels mine are curbed to hell and back though does exactly the same miles to tank as my piece of crap escort.

    Pros: good fun

    Cons: ive had to do work on it
