This car is small yet powerful. The only thing is that the car has virtually no pick up (acceleration). With a very little bit of work, the car is incredible. I got my aspire with 25,000 miles on it and put about $300 worth of work under the hood and the car is amazing. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another aspire at any time.
My favorite features of this car are the body style, the interior, and the simplicity of this car.
The only improvements that i would suggest are going to a parts store and spending about a hundred dollars or so on a new spring kit so the fenders rest closer to the tires.
