Very reliable, great little car

Vehicle: 1996 Ford Aspire 4dr Hatchback

Incredeable interior space. When you take out the back seats (remove 4 bolts) you can use it as a mini-mini van. Gas mileage is a little disappointing. Fun to drive. Very comfortable seats. Lots of leg room (I am 6ft-2". I can stretch my legs. Hardly any trouble after 155,000 miles!!




Alright car

I don't think it is the greatest car, but I do prefer it over some others. The size is what gets me...it is a little to small sometimes, other huge cars like Dodge Ram pickups tower over me, but then it is normal size against other cars. Not as fast as I hoped, but since I have bought it I have never had to do any special work on it other than the usual oil change, and filter change.




Great and fun to drive

Inexpensive, reliable fun!!!

One review of the Aspire summed it up as BULLETPROOF. I concur with that. My car has 116,000 miles on it and I have done NOTHING to it, other then change oil & filter, and air filter. NOTHING else has been touched. While the 63 ponies under the hood my not break your neck accelerating, it does however manage to get you around decently.




Beats competition

The Ford Aspire has higher build quality and performance than competing models in this catagory. While the design of the car's interior and exterior is not awe inspiring or complex, it's design is a direct result of functionality. The exterior shape gives ample head room for the average person. The simply sculpted interior is made of durable plastics. This vehicle also has enough pick-up to not leave you behind in city traffic or even the Appalachian Mountian highways. If ou are looking for a inexpensive, reliable, fun to drive car, this may be for you.

For the past 12 years I have used economy cars to commute 40 miles each way to work. I had 2 used colts and then in 1996 I bought a new 1995 aspire. It was the last on the lot and with a $600 rebate...

The Aspire shifting thing is something you should be HAPPY for. These 3-speed automatics in the Aspire, Festiva, and Metros are built tough for a reason...durability under load. The 50-70 horsepower...

Accord and Camry became kind of soccer mom cars, similar to minivan. What is so exiting about Camcord infirst place? No enthusiast or young hip guy would aspire to own one....
