Well, I have only had my 2-dr.ESi for a few months now, but I drive in excess of 500 kms a day, and I have not had a problem yet. Even at these high gas prices, I am not shelling out my paycheque for gas! Other than the road noise, i find this little puddle jumper to be everything you want it to be. The only other thing is the placement of the drink holders, right in front of the ashtray, so you cant use the ashtray when you have even one drink there! But if you don't smoke then this is of no concern! loL!
Overall good car. Weak transmission however. Has had two re-builds. Has not deterred me from driving. Have not found a newer car with the same versatility and cargo capacity for its size. Easy to drive in city and comfortable on trips.

Outstanding reliability. Change the oil,
oil filter, air filter on schedule, and
run a bottle of injector cleaner through
the tank once every 5000 miles.
Absolutely no mechanical failures
whatsoever. Only replacements have been
the front disc brake pads. Versatile,
cargo-capable, nimble and perfect
visibility from the drivers seat. Not a
race-car, but it goes as fast as needed,
and accelerates to freeway speeds
without complaint. Put the backseat
down, and I carried 4 55 gallon drums,
two on top, two in the back. Better than
a van for gas and maneuverability.
Ugly, but a great little car.

Great little car/van. I'm a musician,
as is my wife. She used it once when
her Escort wagon was out of gas and
immediately asked me to find her one.
Hers now has 112,000 miles and a bit
of rust out, mine has 132,000 and is
rust free. Go figure. back seat folds
forward and gives you much more room
that a Caravan with 3rd seat out.
Pulling back seat out gives 6 feet of
cargo space. Great economy (30 mpg on
the road) and reliability. Mine has
needed NO major work in 4 years
(Brakes only). My wife's needed a
water pump. Timing belt and idler were
replaced at that time which corrected
a noisy engine problem.

Very reliable. I bought my wagon with
84000 miles, I now have 115000 miles
and I have only done basic maintenance
and changed the water pump. It starts
every time. Snow is no problem for this
vehicle - the AWD is great. Gas mileage
suffers a little from being AWD but
it's worth the trade off in a snowy

I bought this car in June. By August,
it was leaking oil. Then it started to
leak antifreeze. The power steering
and ac belt continually broke and no
one could figure out why any of this
was happening. It went kaputt in
