1996 Ford Aspire Hatchback 2dr Hatchback


Review

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.

Gas mileage


Suggested Improvements

The size could be a little bigger and may a little more horsepower under the hood.

Review

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.


Favorite Features

This car has one the shortest turning radius EVER! It turns so sharp you can nearly run into the back of yourself if you're not careful!!! I love the fact that I didn't pay a lot for the car, and I am not paying a lot to maintain the car. It just doesn't get any better then this!


Suggested Improvements

A few more horsies wouldn't hurt, but I'll take it anyway.

Review

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.


Favorite Features

My favorite freatures are the great fuel economy, good performance to price ratio, and good comfort on long trips.


Suggested Improvements

The exterior and interior could have been slightly more stylish. Other than that, the vehicle is simple and effective. It is even relatively easy to work on if need be.
