My dad bought me a 1995 Aspire (Automatic) back in 1999. It was my first car and at first glance,
I wasn't too impressed, but after driving it, I quickly fell in love and although it's not the fastest little car, it certainly handles well. Drove it on a trip, 12 hours of non stop driving with out any problems and watched it roll over to 100,000 miles that night! It lasted me until 2008, when the transmission finally gave out. I drove to death! It's been sitting in my back yard ever since as I just can't seem to let it go lol. Ac is STILL freezing cold to date! NEVER GAVE OUT! Did have some repairs done during the time that I drove it, but nothing we couldn't do ourselves. HATED GAS :]
Great on gas, cheap parts, fun to drive, never quits!
Kinda ugly and people laugh at you, but when your car outlasts all of theirs, they are baffled. A little slower when the ac is on, but no regrets! Definitely not a family vehicle, as space is limited.
This is a fun little car. Great gas mileage (40mpg). Bought it used and has been Super reliable, Not had "any" problems, not replaced anything except tires and wipers. Handles well and good power and good brakes. Kinda funny looking from the outside (wife calls it an egg with wheels), but roomy and comfortable on the inside.
Excellent fuel economy and reliable.
Interior noise is a little loud, could be quieter at speeds.
We have never had major problems with
this car except a transmission
replacement at 120,000 miles. Other
than that, only routine maintenance.
Very roomy on the inside. Overall, we
have been impressed with the
performance. It has a small engine, but
we knew that when we bought it. It has
been the only vehicle we have owned for
The roominess. My husband is 6'3" and
he has plenty of head and leg room.
