I bought this car because my '01 Stratus was totaled over the winter. It had 110,700 miles on it at purchase, and now has 113,000. This car handles freeway speeds of 75-80 mph with no problems, and I use the freeway 3 or more times a week traveling between 20 and 30 mile distances one way. The power seats are comfortable and all the controls are simple and within reach. I'm 6'4 and the leg room is ample enough for comfort. I would recommend the Spirit to anybody needing affordable, reliable transportation.
The power equipment, this car is loaded with it. The quality, availability, and affordable costs are big pluses in this economy.
Electronic fuel injection and at least a 4 speed automatic transmission.
