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
The size could be a little bigger and
may a little more horsepower under the
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.
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!
A few more horsies wouldn't hurt, but
I'll take it anyway.
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.
My favorite freatures are the great fuel economy, good performance to price ratio, and good comfort on long trips.
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.
